If you have no Religiong then why come to a Religious Debate?

I mean if you have no faith or want not faith then why even get involved in a religious related topic? I mean it makes no sense to get yourself in a huff over a topic you have no care for.

  • To defend their choice of having no religion? I don't see the problem. It's just another perspective.

  • A one sided debate sounds more like a sermon.

  • People can be facinated by why believers believe, without actually sharing the faith. One can have an interest in understanding religions even if they don't participate in them.

  • There is a difference between religion and faith.

    Many people have "faith" but do not follow a religion.
    Many people follow a religion yet have not faith.

    In regards to people that have neither faith nor religion. The topics are of interest to some. Learning why others have the faith or religious beliefs they do. Learning why faith/religion matters to them.. Learning what that faith/religion brings into their lives... And as always, the comparison of ideologies..

    There are many answers to your question. The answer just depends on the individual and whether or not they are a person of: faith, religion, faith & religion, or neither.

    These types of discussions, from all angles and perspectives, are a good thing. They help show the commonalities that we all have, and help to gain understanding and acceptance of those things that are different.

  • I am interested in WHY people believe what they do. Just because I have no religion personally, does not mean it doesn't interest me from a historical and psychological perspective.

  • Alright OP, in an attempt to comprehend your narrow slice of un-reality, I am assessing the situation as this... You are religiously affiliated. You feel offended, and even threatened by people, opinions, or beliefs that do not solidify your own religious affiliation, decision, or belief. On point yet?

  • People should be allowed to comment on what they do or do not believe in.
