I was agnostic/atheist for ten years, but I read alot about religions. I came to the Catholic Faith by reading books and asking questions from priests. This is the Information Age where every religion has it's approved books and websites and clergy. So, why ask questions here when it's just as easy to get the "real" answers from the authoritative sources? So many of the answers are misleading and sarcastic that I feel it's just drama, nothing substantial goes on here.Answer Question

Sometimes that is true, the whole point of the question is to create drama. But other times people are looking for answers from people who actually live something, rather than the official position of a church or religion. Other times they are asking things that are debatable or are just wondering people's opinions. Sometimes popular understanding is more important than official church doctrine.

Sometimes people are just lazy and want people to do the research for them (though I don't think that's a good idea myself), and sometimes people just want a direction. Sometimes people just want a variety of opinions on the subject. When I'm looking for information, I will sometimes ask my internet friends, if I think they might know where I can start looking. It saves me time. However, I would never ask random people I've never had contact with. You have no idea what kind of info you'll get.
