But yeah, if I want to discuss atheism, I’ll go in the atheism room
On wire, the intent was to create a room called « Religion Room » so that people could come together and chat, to share and discuss their faith and the why’s and what’s of such faith!
What it IS today, is a room for « the lonley and bored » to come in and disrupt and act like hethens and be against those of faith!
Here’s why. humans typically bash and/or make fun of anything they do not understand and/or are against furthermore; people who have no faith, no God, are they not lonley and wanting others to join them so they don’t feel « so alone » in this world?
Example: in school, people form cliques, and they only allow like minded people into those cliques, there are druggies, and all they do is try to gain supporters of their behavior so they don’t feel so alone, look. if I am doing this and it is wrong, let’s get others so we are all wrong so it is right!
It is interesting to me how we can in one instance be having a great conversation in the religion room and in the next few minutes , perhaps just 1 person will come in and totally ruin it. why is that?
My thoughts, they come in to get the attention off of the purpose of the room to only get the attention on themselves. iF NOT, why ruin it for others, why not simply sit quietly to see what we are discussing as the lurkers do.
Lurkers: they sit and watch what we say and what our beliefs are, perhaps to gain knowledge, or to fill a void in their lives, they don’t want to interrupt, they don’t believe as we do, BUT, the room might be popular and it fills a void in watching us.
Cenababy: I think what people of faith must do is, TAKE the room back. perhaps we can announce (CLICK, you are now blocked from our conversation so that we can carry on). j/s I THINK THAT IS THEIR INTENT, so why give them the end result that they desire? They are winning everytime one of us has a ruined conversation or when « we » leave, they have won. Their WHOLE PURPOSE is to get the attention of of God and on to « the world ».
So, from now on, I will block those who want to act childish and ruin a great conversation. so that we can carry on leaving the intruders to show off in front of the other show offs. GOD needs to win!
I don’t think it is « us » who need to leave, stop talking or let « them » ruin our good conversation
« What it IS today, is a room for « the lonley and bored » to come in and disrupt and act like hethens and be against those of faith! , so why do they come into a room entitled Religion Room? »
« I think what people of faith must do is, TAKE the room back. perhaps we can announce (CLICK, you are now blocked from our conversation so that we can carry on). «
I agree that some people hijack conversations and that’s a little rude of them to do regardless of whether they’re religious or not. and it doesn’t matter if the topic is atheism vs theism, abortion, the weather, etc.
If I want to discuss science, I’ll go in the science room. and if I want to discuss religion, I’ll go in the religion room. The administrator of the website came into the room a while back and confirmed that this is how the rooms worked and told atheists they were welcome to stay and discuss things as long as it remained respectful.
