I'm trying an experiment: AdminPhat will be assigned to the Faith and Belief forum. EvC Forum has not in the past assigned moderators to specific forums, but we've had some recent episodes of moderator collision where two moderators begin moderating the same thread, and this should help reduce such episodes. If it appears to be working then I'll expand the experiment.
So lets ask ourselves what Faith & Belief actually is. Our Forum definition asks a question: Is God an objective reality or a subjective concept? Notice that it does not state an answer.
In my opinion, Faith & Belief is not limited to the Holy Bible or do any Holy Book. Such books can be used to support a belief, provided that the participant is respectful of the viewpoints of others. Part of the reason that the Forum started censoring words was to discourage name calling on a repetitive basis. We can agree to disagree, provide that our dialogues then move forward. Once a topic gets stuck in a rant between two or three people, I believe that it should be shut down and allowed to cool off temporarily. (Watched Moose do that with some success) OK now ima get to work.
