Everyone please read the new sticky, the only sticky now in this section. Effectively immediately, the rules for the Religious Section have changed.

There will be some thread clean up and some threads removed as we effect this change so be patient as these changes occur.

Generally speaking, I'm okay with this. I don't like having politicial and scientific conversations here anyway. But I have to say, this rule is going to cause you some headaches. Not all religions have deities in the classical sense. There is going to be some very blurry lines that you guys are going to have to deal with. I wish you luck.

The easy way hasn't worked at all in this section. Now we are going with the right way. Right isn't always easy, but it is right.

Will unbelievers get their own section, only unbelievers allowed, shown on the main page? A social group doesn't show on the main page (I believe), you have to go hunting for it.

Just trying to be equitable.

The entire forum is available to all members, including the unbelievers. This section is, however, reserved for the believers, just as the Ladies Section is reserved only for ladies.

'It's not fair' doesn't really work as a battle cry for adults. If a group of people say they do not believe then they do not have a need for a section devoted to the fact they don't believe in a religion..

Do the atheists get their own section ?

That could be entertaining ?

As a reminder, this thread is in the Religious Section.

Atheists and any other non-believers will NOT post in the Religious Section at all, anywhere, for any reason.

This was your one free reminder.

If I "identify" as a discriminated against white male can I get my own section too?

I know everyone will think I'm nuts but I would rather discuss serious, religious/spiritual issues with atheists before discussing them with pagans/heathens. I know, I know ... I just had to throw a wrench in the works but I just happen to have more trust in atheists than the other (as strange as that may sound).

(P.S. I personally believe that atheism has become a religion of sorts).

I am guessing that there is NO empirical evidence to support this assertion. Does not matter to me as I never post here in this section. But I do always wonder when a very, very small group of people have taken the position that "THEY" shall determine what is "RIGHT" and by default......what shall be deemed WRONG.

For the record, I know there is GOD. Believing in GOD is for people who are not quite sure, so they have to believe.

Humans will always be telling other humans what to believe, and decide for them what is "RIGHT".

Really a lot like: "Oligarchy". As I say, don't think I have ever posted in this Religious section in the past, and doubt I would ever have reason to in the future.

Wow, Just wow.

Ok question, Who determines if someone is lacking of sufficient faith in a deity to qualify as a nonbeliever?

If you are unsure of your belief status that is not something with which we can or will help you. Your past posts are quite telling in most cases. We are completely comfortable with our ability to moderate this section and have no qualms at all excluding people who say one thing and post another.

The trolling, insulting, and ridiculous arguing in this section are finished. As mentioned in the rule, we are tired of it. The trolling and disruptive behavior in this section of the forum has been destroying the section and it is over.

Just so you are completely aware, this is a private forum. NO actions have been taken unilaterally. This has been a joint decision and it is binding for the forum.

However, let's just be plain spoken. If you don't post here and won't post here, then you have NO dog in this fight, you are simply arguing to see your keystrokes hit the screen. So stop now.
