I generally try to steer clear from the religious debates but I'm really seeing some hateful things going on here.
I prefer to have my discussions on religions, afterlife,different beliefs with real people that don't knock you down for the way you think.
I have a large variety of friends and family in real life and I have no problem discussing with them on what we believe in. I actually ENJOY the conversations. The discussions on here SUCK! Why? Because everyone seems to want to prove thier point and wants everyone to jump on thier personal bandwagon.Face it..we live in a world of billions of people...were bound to have different views, shouldnt that be ok?
My name is Kim and I believe in God,the devil, Heaven and the stars. Ialso believe in healing of stones,energy,Karma,even reincarnation.I believe in the healing powers of the mind and from prayer.I love learning about others beliefs as well.Whats yours? :)
I think the problem has mostly to do with communication. There are ways to state your beliefs without being condescending or running someone else's beliefs into the ground in the process. And it's something we should be more careful of when speaking about personal faith and beliefs. Saying, "My faith teaches this and this" is much less aggressive than saying, "My faith is right! Your faith is wrong!". Some people just can't seem to get that.

Honestly I've had the best conversations here. Unfortunately for some of you it's been with the Agnostics, Atheists and Pagans. If you agree to disagree with them it can be quite enlightening. Now as far as having bad conversations it's almost always been with fundamentalists. They will never agree to disagree. They're right and that's that. BTW I'm Catholic. I do believe in the Trinity, Transubstantiation, the evil one, and that those that have passed before us are alive in Heaven and can pray for us. While asking God ourselves.
