Is This The Death Of The Religious Section?

With so much time on my hands today. . . I decided to browse through the religion section, only to realise that there is NOT a single new thread that raises intellectual posers and provokes deeply thought-out debates. all we have are bashing and opinionated threads . . . , with no room for intellectual and rich debates anymore.

is the religion section dead? where are the principal actors?

religion is both a curse on humanity and a blessing. mankind can not help wondering about how he came into existence and whether there is existence after death. then religions rush to the rescue. starting from individuals who went on their own individual quest and then blossoming into organizations with instruments of control. then the madness started. all the fun gone and killing in the name of God took over the playing field. from my own point of view and from my own little excursions through the different religions present on earth today religion should be a very personal thing. just your own way of trying to find the meaning of life. and experiences from your own search should be freely shared with others without rancour. if we can not share with an open heart without resorting to abuses and threats in NL then you can imagine what it will be like in the outside world. chaos in the name of God. lets us start here in NL to learn how to love and tolerate each other. every one is entitled to his or her believe in life or unbelieve. let us learn to tap from each others knowledge because no one know it all and no religion has it all. all are simply parts of the whole.

Those are old stories. . . and they are stolen from other history source . they are not real events of christian root . before Christianity came there have been other religions in the world. Jesus didn't change any guy known as Saul. . .that's a flattered lie! . . . JESUS was having a WITCHERY power no doubt , but he's using it for Magic , Tricks , and casting spells on people , animals , trees , stones , water . . . he cant be the messiah of the world and this reason he was killed because of his stubbornness . he was claiming too know with the little power of magic in him. . .perhaps , he didn't know others have power greater .

Your false prophecies wont work on me friend. . . you're just wasting your time. . . i remain on my ground! and still the Ogaga 4 SATAN .

Nothing last forever.The fundermentalist fanatics are taking over the forum and they will put a final nail on the coffin.That is the nature of religions, they do not eencourage discuss that much, and i hail nairalanders for having kept the forum buzzing for this long despite this.It is absolutely amazing.

The Religion Section just isn't very interesting without posters like Nferyn, and Reverend. Nferyn was a very bright guy who never lost an argument, and Reverend was just a trip. Too bad.

A_K_O is a useless Ingrate, banning people out of envy, he is always jealous when he sees a person shining, he suffers from chronic emotional insecurity, to him a nairaland moderator is a Nigerian senator. he has banned almost all interesting guys here, this nairaland is getting boring , maybe we should all leave it for the owner who makes his money with us and his useless moderator A_K_O.

It was inevitable. Those who run the forum where more interested in protecting muslim sensitivity.

Perhaps you shouldn't try to convert.  That is why you get so disappointed when 'at the end of the day nothing'.

It is much better to debate with a dialectical spirit of exploring the issue.  Ultimately it might be your own mind that is changed rather than the other person being converted.  Or even both of you will end up changing your positions slightly (not necessarily a complete volte face) though not to the same position.

Just my suggestion.

see this enemy of progress. folks like abuzola never die, they only multiply. 

This section is seasonal, the jagun jaguns would be back. The muslim section should be scrapped by the way.

I gave up 'intellectual debates' on public forums eons ago. Frankly its no use. You argue and argue and at the end of the day nothing.

I learnt long ago you cannot convert anyone through arguing, infact it serves to further entrench them into their dogma. . . .

So FUN is my motto here. I don't care if two individuals are sliting their throats all over the damn board as long as am ENTERTAINED and have ALL THE FUN.

This is my own point of view.

There is still plenty room for intellectual and rich debates. In fact, the forum never got smaller, and the 'principal actors' were never banned. So I am quite confused by your assertion. Many enlightening threads are created from time to time, but it appears that the very controversial ones are the more popular, hence they get more posts and remain on the front page of the child board. It is a direct reflection of users' activities on the forum, it is not like it is deliberately engineered by someone behind the scenes. If users choose not to post "threads that raise intellectual posers and provoke deeply thought-out debates", they will not be, simple as that.

From my own understanding, there is a fairly thin line between being tolerant of criticism and preventing unwarranted abuse and defamation of one's religion. It is the reason why till tomorrow, a lot of threads will be argumentative and controversial, and they will be permitted on the forum. It is when these are not factual and merely sentimental, or when they degenerate into personal attacks that they cannot be tolerated.

The whole idea of "Islam for Muslims" unfortunately makes this space the only place for cross-religious debate.

rebranded rebanned with immediate effect.

Because religion is DEAD, it is the same outdated information that is recycled again and again. Christian are more and more confused and are just doing copy and paste of the same old bible. There is nothing new, and everything that have to be said about the bible have been said already again and again. Still your Jesus is not here yet and peadophile Pastors are still Molesting childrens at church.

Why is noetic pretending to be an intellectual by starting a thread like this? Here is an idea for you thread starter, start one of those 'intellectual and deeply thought out' threads that you miss. Start one yourself instead of just complaining.

And moderator, unban Abuzola with immediate effect.

Hi all,

It always left me astonished; wondering why people lament on things they could themselves call an end to. Instead of just complaining, criticizing others for the fault, and the likes, why won't we see these classical and sensational postings from you guys, right?

Hah!Look who is talking!Noetic(of all people) is looking for threads that "raises intellectual posers and provokes deeply thought out debates".Aren't we forgetting something?This is a RELIGION forum and and only shallow my - religion - is - better - than - yours threads get opened in here.In this forum, where religious folks form about 99% of the crowd, what do you expect?It is all oneupmanship business here,my friend.Deep thinking?Religions like christianity and islam make people to be extremely shallow in their thinking.People who only try to promote and force their religious ideologies on others cannot be expected to indulge in deep thinking debates.To them, it is a sheer waste of time.They just want their respective religions to be accepted as the one and only truth, and that is the end of that.What depth of thinking do you think that requires or can provoke?Let me tell you, NONE WHATSOEVER.So what is all this talk about a dearth of deep thinking threads?Are you not a christian?Aren't you also involved in the religious propaganda actions of running other beliefs down just to upgrade yours? When was the last time that you opened such a thread, noetic?Will you quit being a hypocrite for once.

Tudor - You dare not speak: cos you hardly ever open any threads yourself, so you cannot sit back and lament if there are no interesting threads!

And shamefully, it has to be said that the Moderators allowed him to do this.

Where is Huxley? I also then the departure of the atheists has been a blow to the section. Those atheists that remain are not really getting that involved. It is all christian vs. Muslim.

Makes one want to become a buddhist.
