Should we get involved in debates that pertain to unprovable facts?
Well I believe yes, because the answers exist, but maybe the question doesn't. Or questions can be raised new to us which help us find answers that do exist.
So I believe each question that has been raised, is productive to constructive discussion, and in fact a discussion in which we all ought to be able to make some contribution to.
Admitadly the internet is a maze of information, the worlds biggest bookshop and largest Libary, so a subject can easily be researched with out a debating forum. But to me their is something infinitely more rewarding, learning and being educated in friendship and the cross pollinating of thoughts on a debating forum.
This is even more true when it's a forum on a religion we all have in common, which is updated daily, and includes a diversity of different topics.Personally I have enjoyed checking in each morning on the events in Australia, it's been enlightening,
on another note, I have found a certain strength of character having to defend myself, against innuendo and unwarranted personal attacks. I have also learnt it is wrong of me to rush to judgement, or to assume the intellect, age, or nationality of fellow posters. That we are all more than dots on a computer screen and should be treated with respect.
As we read each other's words, and we express our opinions, i realise we cannot understand what each other may presume, and what we presume also may not be the correct picture. So my advise is rather than become offensive simply leave a thread if it challenges you to break post guidelines.
There is a big difference between knowing and understanding.
