yeah but 3000 years ago an atheist could not say a damn thing without being killed for not believing in a gods, hell 1000 years ago people would have been torn apart by horses if they did not believe in a god, about 200 years ago people would be thrown in a river tide to some rocks to drowned to death, they live they must be a witch, and they are then burned alive. 100 years ago people would have forces Atheist out of their homes and make them leave town.

So yes we finely can speak up without being killed for it. (still we have to be careful, you can still lose your home and job if people find out your an atheist in many places in America. Plus there are still countries killing atheist daily.) So yes Internet is a zone where we can speak out against the irrational without fear of losing ones life, or home.


Yes, but you do realize that such a statement applies equally well to people from just about any belief system. Some forms of atheistic communism have done the same thing historically. It varies from time period to time period and region to region. What's your point?

The world is equally cruel to all people.

Having a debate about religion is fine every once in a while. Having at least one new science vs religion thread pop up every day in forums about anime? That's asking for too much.

I'll say this, if you are looking to have an honest to God (or Science, tee hee) conversation involving these two subjects you can't engage with a dishonest parent post that is practically designed to provoke mud slinging. If you come forward with the advertised intent to bring two different worldviews and come together to, rationally flesh out ideas and come out with a fresh perspective...but you begin with macro images and agitating passive-aggressive rhetoric that insult, ridicule, and belittles the other side, then right out of the gate the thread is bound to fall off the tracks. No one is gonna respect each other. No one is gonna demonstrate empathy and here out the other side. It's just gonna create a needless mess and halt a potentially productive area of discussion.

They pop up anywhere all the time. People need to get over it and just move on from the religious debates. Believe in what you believe in don't force down anyone else throat and be done with it.

Just less ridiculous religious threads... like I did a question on here not so long ago that was on the topic of "can people of two different religions be together". That's not ridiculous, unlike some other ones I've seen...

I know they pop up anywhere all the time. It's just that lately they've been popping up a little too frequently in General Discussion. It's like when it's been raining every single day of the week and you're just wondering "when the hell is it going to end?"
Posted 3/10/15
yeah never did get that, why not just go to a forum dedicated to that type of thing and discuss it there?

It'll probably keep happening whether we like it or not. Personally, I would like to see it end as it seems we can't discuss it civilly. But that's not exclusive to CR, it happens regardless of the place you choose to discuss religion. Some of the topics are more well thought out than "Are Christianity and Islam False?". Yet even those seem to often turn from a discussion into an argument.

Religion is just something humans made up on their own. Whether god exists or not is dependent on what someone believes. Arguments beyond that are pointless. I'd love to see no threads on religion, since it is a concept that has caused or indirectly influenced the regression of technology, needless wars (while promoting specific technological developments), and caused a lot of unnecessary problems for society. Then again, religion isn't all bad. It does give a lot of people hope and all that. I'll stand on my own two feet by myself. But if you need to believe in the support of a superior being to help you on your feet everyday, then by all means, do that. But don't tell me I should do the same. Religion is a belief. It isn't fact. It isn't law. It is a damn belief.

I'd love to see fewer threads about religion. But religion is something some people care about. A whole bunch. It's super important. So the mess of topics we are seeing now probably won't be going away anytime soon.

Right and like I said earlier, we can see how dishonest the phrasing of the question is. Turn that around and see how a crowd would react to a thread entitled: "Is Atheist backed science essentially new age bullshit? Talk and Discuss" I doubt the conversation that follows would be productive.

Right i understand that, and thats perfectly acceptable to want to talk about religion but take it to a chat site or religion based site. There is really no reason to start up a religion debate on a forum for anime and anime related things, other than to troll or get a kick out of the fights that will occur.
