So here I am just chilling out being a christian, reading A TON of threads on here where Christians and Non-Christians (assumed mostly atheist) go back and forth endlessly (The atheists sounding so much more intelligent about 99% of the time, which is so discouraging to me haha) about who's right and who's wrong and this is why and blah blah. That's great, but where are the debates/discussions over the other religions? If you have other threads in mind please point me in their direction.

There's a few threads which involve multiple ones, such as the Heaven and Hell thread. Before we had some "Ask a Muslim" and "Ask a Hindu" threads, but they weren't kept up with. I think there were a few others, a Norse mythology one, a Satanism one, and a Wiccan one, same problem as the other non-christian threads. Without that other side being around to field their side of the debate the threads die.

You can look through the previous pages, although I believe there's a forum bug atm where the threads aren't really in order past a certain point...and they are most likely far back.

So what you're saying is there's just not enough, if any at all, people from other religions and worldviews here? Well that's a tad disappointing. Thanks for your help.

There is a few on here, for example I think Punisher is still on. He is a Muslim. You might get him to talk. There is also a few Jewish people. Someone had a little "Pole" a while back, the forum is glitched so I can not find it, but if you are interested it might help you.

if you mean the glitch where it always shows the same page, it has been in my experience that you can get around that by clicking on a thread, going back, and hitting reload.

p.s. someone else posted this on the thread dealing with the glitch.

i think there was also an "ask a jew" thread but it only lasted 2 pages. thing is christians make the most most of the theists community on AG. the others dont exist or probably dont care enough to post in there. ill also be a little harsh and say that usually its christianity that is being argued with other people. its pretty much the religion that effects the most (in places where non-christians live too).

judaism usually keeps a low profile and doesnt really effect anyone and islam usually only effects people in the middle east.

And the fact Christians haven't worked out the idea of locking themselves up as monks and never giving a care, rather than attacking other religions like French Corvettes.

I would like it if there would be more diversity in the religions here on AG.
Right now I'm exploring the religious world for myself and I don't quite understand why most people on AG seem to be atheist or Christian.
