    RHP Spirituality Forum Gym Topics: "Debate and general discussion of the supernatural, religion, and the life after."

    Let's trim some thread fat by exercising the muscles of focused thought on the above topics with single lines of lean text.

    Note: On my hp pavillon zd7000 14.5 inch wide screen laptop 123 characters and spaces fit on a "single line of lean text".

    Of the topics, does "religion" seem to trump "the supernatural" and "the life after" in popularity on this forum? If so, why?

    Discussion of both the "supernatural" and "the life after" clearly includes discussion of whether they exist and what kind of psychological and anthropological factors might make someone think that they are real. And people 'with religion' frequently do not seem to be especially "spiritual" at all and often just seem to be engaged in groupthink and regurgitation of some literature or other.

    There are a high number of religionists here promoting their ideologies incessantly often in holier-than-though battles with fellow religionists of different persuasions and denominations. This might explain why. So, why do you think "religion" seems to trump "the supernatural" and "the life after" in popularity on this forum?

    I don't think I've ever seen a thread here on the 'supernatural' or afterlife that wasn't derailed by christians within a handful of posts.

    It all depends on your font, Bob.

    Overwhelmingly most threads about "afterlife" are BY Christians.

    Why would an atheist need to talk about an afterlife?

    Only two options? 😲

    Overwhelmingly most stupid posts are BY Christians.

    Most 'threads about afterlife' are not 'stupid posts'.

    See what I did there? Yeah, I thought you might.

    Why would a theist?

    The 'End of the World' and/or 'The End Times' seem to be topics that be quite popular. Why do you reckon that is?

    If done so knowingly, what would you ascribe to having been their motivations to behave in a counterproductive manner?

    Suzi, irrespective of our different fonts, aren't the fonts and font size of all Red Hot Pawn Forum thread text identical?

    In terms of religion, Bible based religions are pretty much the only game in town. Sure, there are others such as Hinduism, but by in large Bible based religions dominate.

    If it were not for the Bible, most would probably just have to make up a religion to believe in if they believed there was a God, and some do here. If you do, what is there to debate other than tearing down others beliefs that are based upon the Bible? In the end, all you do is just shrug your shoulders when it comes to questions about the after life or any other topic of morality while telling everyone else why they are wrong.
