    No I think people are saying they are confused that some don't want non christians in the religious section then start a thread directed at them in the religious section.

    How hard is it people, seriously? Can we now move onto something more interesting? Like, how 'bout that local sports team? I hear someone strained his something and is due for surgery but it might end his career...

    Totally agree....

It was such a great discussion, with people explaining why they didn't think there could be a God based on x,y,z, others saying 'if there is a God I don't like him because he allows bad things to happen' etc. No-one got upset or offended at those questions/statements. Then people started outrightly criticising anyone's belief in God , personally criticising those people. What disclaimer could you have put that still allowed discussion, but stopped bigotry such as that?
    I will admit I was disappointed to log on to see the thread closed and how it panned out. It was absolutely not my intention to have it go as it did when I created it. I'm at a low point in my life and other people I know, good people, are going thru lots of stuff to. It was an attempt to understand, maybe for ME to clarify for myself.

    umm yeah I kinda noticed this too. This thread was meant for non believers to respond. So I think blame falls on both sides here....

    It's the contradiction I don't get.

    The whole thread is full of contradictions. Kind of fitting actually.

    I'm starting to agree with others who refuse to post their beliefs that we can't expect a respectful conversation. People are arguing that a thread asking people to be polite and respectful is pointless. Then I guess it sadly must be pointless. I will remember that and refrain from posting/disclosing personal beliefs as they are then open to ridicule.

    You've just ignored a couple of posters in this thread then.

    ..because it HAPPENS.
    Oh.... seriously. You know the point I'm making. If nitpicking makes you feel more right then go right ahead

    Aren't you clever for pointing that out.

    *sighs* c'mon girls.... this thread is going to get closed soon. Can't we just have a decent discussion here? I think there could be some importance to this thread, to have religious people understand why atheists respond to religious threads.

    Is it an attempt to discredit people?

    Is it to prove them wrong?

    Is it to make out like you know more than religious people?

    Or is it something else?

    I dont see you asking people to be respectful in the OP.

    The OP is loaded and passively aggresive TBH - from where I sit
