.oOo. FORUM UPDATE .oOo.

Listen, we've been pretty leniant on the "disrespect" rule, but I'm getting tired of it. Since it's a thin line between disrespect and argument, I'll give some examples of proper arguments and disrespectful ones:

Oversimplifications:
Bad: "You just don't know any better because you were force fed evolution in schools"
Respectful: "I believe that a lot of people today are athiests or evolutionists because thats what they were taught all of their life.

Bad: "The Bible is a fairytale that gets ignorant people to believe in fantastical stories."
Respectful: "I believe that the Bible is vastly fabricated"

Bad: "Oh yeah, we came from fish, that really makes sense."
Respectful: "I don't really understand how Evolution says we came from simpler organisms, maybe you can explain how you believe this."

Threatening:
Bad: "You're going to hell because you're gay"
Respectful: "I think that being gay is a choice people make towards sin, and they won't go to heaven in the afterlife" (Note: Telling people they're going to hell is a bit disrespect, euphamizing it with "not going to heaven" may be better)


Parody:
Bad: "If you believe in God you might as well believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster"
Good: "There isn't any empirical evidence for the existence of God."

Bad: "Jesus was the Easter Bunny/Santa Claus, etc."
Good: "I don't quite understand the significance of the ______ in this specific holiday."

Other:
Really anything that starts with "It's not my fault that you...


I've remained somewhat silent on this because I don't want to be accused of bias moderation. But its gotten to the point that I'll take those criticisms in exchange for fairness. Honestly, it seems to me that the Christians are being the ones disrespected the most; this is due to the self-admitted illogicalness of Christianity. Also, I try to be harder on Christians in order to avoid being accused of being bias.

apparently no one cared enough so you had to change the title?

I mean you have a valid point, but you don't expect this in any other sub-forum, I'm not sure why it starts here.
