This topic will be an experiment to see if we can have a friendly topic to discuss religion and theology. All are welcome, from believers to atheists. You do not have to agree on anything. Please try to be respectful of other people's beliefs. Try to avoid proselytizing - i.e., trying to "win" someone over to your particular belief system - and instead, try to listen and understand where someone is coming from.
No flames, insults or trolling will be tolerated. Please keep debate respectful and on the issues. Passion is fine as long as it's not used to attack others but to express yourself with vigor and enthusiasm.
