BrendanB BS: Special thread on Evolution & religion (1001* d) RE: BS: Special thread on Evolution & religion 28 Aug 14

There are subjects that can be debated and subjects that cannot be debated. The latter are those which involve an unquestioning faith. This is because such a faith allows no possibility of changing belief. Debating evolution with a fundamentalist Christian falls into this category.
Not all people of faith are unquestioning in their belief. Some believe that because humanity is endowed with intelligence that requires them to think for themselves. It is true that that can lead to difficulties when seeking to align religious orthodoxy with personal morality but seeking for truth in one's spiritual life is a valuable activity in developing self understanding.
There are those who will condemn such an approach as 'boutique religion', well, so be it.
In short, this thread cannot possibly achieve anything. Although it may afford opportunities for the usual suspects to hurl abuse at anyone who admits to having a Christian faith. Strange that some people are so infuriated by perceived homophobia and yet indulge in what might be termed rabid christophobia.
