I'm atheist and why do I enter religious threads? bc I have a background in christian belief as a child and I'm interested in the historical aspect. I believe Jesus lived and died, I actually find him a facinating, wonderful person.... but I don't think he was the son of god. I'm interested in the historical basis to the flood, the scientific basis to creation/evolution.
My intent is certainly not to mock religious people, in fact I go to great pains to make sure I don't do the above, just state my opinion as I see it.I do genuinely understand your frustrations in a way. You feel like people are criticising beliefs that are very important to you. But see it for what it is - an intellectual debate by 2 opposing sides, women that are often lacking in mental stimulation lol that are enjoying the debate to exercise their brains rather than hate on christians. At least that's how I see it
and I want to add this - as I planned to but my 'why do bad things happen to good people' thread was closed - I DO NOT think religious people are stupid or primitive. I admit I struggle to see how they can hold the beliefs they do given all the scientific evidence out there, but I understand (but don't share) the notion of faith.

why open this thread in the Religious section - invite 'non religious people' in and then tell them the are not wanted in here!?
Religion impacts my life.
A mother bottle feeding her baby does NOT impact my life.
That is why I feel no need to respect a certain religion.
I will respect the person as a person with differing belief...and I will respect the fact that they will stubbornly defend that beleif - as I do my own.
...but I will never stop questioning and inquiring Religion.
I don't think the OP has any issue at all with people not believing in the same God as her, or questioning the origins of any religion- its the rudeness and intolerance that is an issue.
Whatever, if it makes you feel better...I thought we were talking about threads in the religious section? That one was not
