I Just Want To Say This To The People Posting In Here

In other forums I've been too, I've learned to avoid areas like this as it seemed impossible to talk about religion or politics or other sensitive issues without the threads turning into narrow minded preaching or abusive insults and flame wars. I just checked back in on a half-forgotten discussion of mine re: organised religion and, seeing so many posts to it, and going by my past experience I immediately thought 'flame war'. Only it wasn't - it was a variety of people with a variety of views having a rational and respectful discussion/ debate. What a breath of fresh air. Kudos to the regulars in here who have created such an atmosphere

LCK, it's because your mind has been corrupted by Zootopia.

. I like the little guy, too. .

Anywho, yeah, it can get rather heated in here sometimes...but for the most part, we're all pretty mature when we debate these issues.

Although I don't mind the occasional heated debate every now and again, personally. .

We've had pretty spirited debates here. The Iraq issue was one with much disagreement over it, and it still is. But we don't do stupid petty things like question someone's patriotism or call someone names or insult each other. I've been on other forums where all sorts of happened, and I didn't like it. We have mods who make sure we're nice. We're friends here, we just don't necessarily agree on Iraq or who to vote for in the next elections or whatever. Reasonable people can disagree on many things.

Exactly.

I also like these debates because I like hearing where the opposing side is coming from with their stance. Even if I still don't agree with them after all is said and done, I at least understand better why they feel the way they do.

It's also nice to find people from both sides of the aisle that do not blindly follow their respective parties. They question some of their own side's stances on things. I really like that, 'cause I unfortunately can't say the same thing with a lot of other people I've debated with outside of this forum, so it's really good to find that here.

seriously though, I think we also are all a rather educated bunch. no just you're wrong, no you are. everyone brings documents and articles and data to the table which is really good.
