TheThinkingTheist
So our theist members are virtually non-existent due to the immediate barrage of insults they receive upon stating their beliefs, so I was thinking...

What if there were a forum that was designed like a battlefield, or a debate club.

TheThinkingAtheist is sort of like this one. Then there's another site called TheThinkingTheist that's the theist version of this one. And there's a section in both forums that is the community area, sort of the podium for both forums.

Only atheists could see posts and converse in TTA and only theist members could see and converse in TTT (or as the cool kids will come to call it, T Cubed). But both sides can see and converse in the community part. That way the minds of the atheists and theists could talk amongst each other, formulating ideas and agreeing on talking points, before posting their final argument in the "podium" section for the other side to debate.

That way, both sides feel at home and would remain unridiculed in their respective forums, but could still offer up arguments with the support of their fellow members.

I feel like a lot more well thought out discussions would be had, without people having to flee from the pressure of having to defend theism single-handedly.

RE: TheThinkingTheist
A good idea, maybe we can see the viewpoints of other non-Abrahamic religions, to see where they stand with regards to moral and social issues. Everyone can learn from each other and learn to accept and tolerate. On the other hand, threads have the potential of degenerating into flame wars, with fanatic denouncement of the beliefs of each side. Moderation on the posters part is extremely important.

Maybe have a "code of ethics" for members, but allow all types of discussion related to religion.

I have a feeling that T3 is going to be a very, very lonely place.

I think the really cool kids will pronounce it 'titties'.

Isn't Thinking Theist an oxymoron? Like Jumbo Shrimp? or Military Intelligence?

RE: TheThinkingTheist
This whole thing might be a moot point now anyways... There's only one active theist left. Theo barely posts... No one wants to hang with egor.... And there was a recent convert.

I kinda wish we had more intelligent theists. KC's OK but Egor is not possible to engage with and there's no one else Sad

We should test Erxomai's lack of faith by making him dress up and play like one.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
