Unless opening a religion/politics forum would lead to that end, solving all the world's differences, then it would just be a colossal waste of time. Especially when most have educated themselves, and have made their own personal decisions on what to believe in, what not to believe in, politically, scientifically, religiously.

Talking about politics and religion is no less pointless than discussing 22 year old kids.

I don't believe that. All those discussion, I am referring to, go on and on, with no finite end in sight. It's like a Michael Vick, Peyton vs Tom, etcetera, thread, x100.

Exactly politics and religion is as played out as Brady Quinn and Troy Smith's height threads... There is no difference. Its not like people haven't made up their minds on prospects. The only way people will change their view is if its coming from toonster or scott.

Are there any posters, or people anywhere, who can change anyone's view on those topics? It's unlikely. Besides, this is a Football forum, I expect to debate football related discussions. If I wanted to debate evolution, religion, left vs right, I would go to a appropriate forum. I have seen gaming forums that have a "Thought Provoking Forum," it's throughly pointless, especially with a predominantly 17-year old audience, incapable of forming intelligent retorts.

You expect to debate football yet your hanging out in the off topic thread creating threads on politics and religion. Awesome.

I like to debate it, because the art of debate naturally makes you investigate your own beliefs much more thoroughly.

While I respect the choice of this forum to not discuss certain things (even if I don't agree with it at all), using the reasoning "chances are we won't figure this out, so we might as well not talk about it at all" is totally ridiculous.

It is human nature to talk over things, even if reaching a solid conclusion is incredibly unlikely.

the reason this site doesn't allow it is because it leads to flaming... nothing more complicated than that.

The reason we don't debate politics is because the average age here is about 15 and a half. When you can't buy cigarettes, I don't want to hear your thoughts on foreign policy. In fact, I don't want to hear 98% of this boards thoughts on sports. Chances are, unless you're old enough to be in the phonebook, you have nothing worthwhile to say........ever

I just want a political thread for when people make off-base, untrue, and essentially propaganda type posts.

Those bother me, and I would like to be able to say why, and what was wrong.

Rick's actually closer than most on the reason. It isn't due to flaming "per say." But, if you could debate it without flaming we'd be good. The problem is some people long long ago, before my time, messed it up for all of us with an overabundance of flaming. That and when these issues do pop up *cough*Hardaway*cough* people STILL get angry and flame over nothing. That doesn't really show it is something a sports forum is for and should handle.

And if you think the idea of allowing these debates hasn't been brought back up, then you are severely wrong.
