Apologetics 301 Guidelines

If you think this is the area where you tell everyone you are sorry for eating their lunch out of the fridge, it probably isn't the place for you


This forum is open discussion between atheists and all theists to defend and debate their views on religion or non-religion. Please respect that this is a Christian-owned forum and refrain from gratuitous blasphemy. VERY wide leeway is given in range of expression and allowable behavior as compared to other areas of the forum, and moderation is not overly involved unless necessary. Please keep this in mind. Atheists who wish to interact with theists in a way that does not seek to undermine theistic faith may participate in the World Religions Department. Non-debate question and answers and mild and less confrontational discussions can take place in General Theistics.

      He engages in trollish behavior in other threads, but he's been perfectly civil in this thread. You're just gratuitously attacking him.
      Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.--Isaiah 1:17

      I don't think that all forms o[f] slavery are inherently immoral.--seer

        I disagree, but I will withdraw.

          I have followed first floor for some time, and yes he has his moments, but in general he does not exhibit trollish behavior.

            Qoheleth was already controversial in Jewish contexts, and then also among Christians. It is also one of my favorite books of the Hebrew scriptures.

            ἄρτι γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους, τότε δὲ ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην.

              More Ecclesiastes: (5:18) "Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him-for this is his lot."

              Proverbs 20:11 "Even a child is known by his actions, by whether his conduct is pure and right."
