When can we just throw away these ideas or points of view and talk about us more??
I don’t like the religious posts either. Religion is fine, people’s belief systems are fine but as topics on the forum I think they’re more trouble than they’re worth.
There is a solution, though I’m not sure I should mention it as widespread knowledge of it and organized use of it could cause some havoc.
Edit: That last line sounds a bit ominous so I’ll just come out with it. I’m pretty sure the forum automatically hides posts that get flagged a certain number of times. If a small group of people were to get together and all flag every religious post then those posts would be hidden by the system. It’s not a perfect solution but one to consider.
Well it’s just becoming way too evident that our manias cause us to (look up or down) to really find out questions. But I don’t think that is what the masters like Ghandi would want.
Shouldn’t we be focused on the here and now?
definitely the here and now and maybe even looking forward in to the future as well i think
When does God and the devil get off the forum?
The day people start placing the value of truth above the value of mere beliefs.
Lol well a lot of people on here deal with delusions, a lot of those delusions revolve around religion, so it makes sense.
Are you saying we should go somewhere else if we need help dealing with our religious-related delusions and paranoia? Unless there have been threads on here debating religion that I haven’t seen, which would be random, I agree.
We’ve been joshed on for actually doing too much about consipiracy theories and god and the devil instead of other stuff. Even I was told to sort of tone it down yet some people are redlining it. I dunno Anna, I deal with my problems and I just get sick of trying to find out how a god or a devil could let this type of ■■■■ happen.
New age? Or new empire?
i think it would be unfair to censor anybody’s belief system be it debate or delusion be it god and the devil or government conspiracy or any other conspiracy come to that. just because it diesn’t sit well with any one of us is no reason to censor anybody’s comments i don’t think. i’m more than happy to discuss government conspiracies and i don’t know why you were censored @neveragain but that’s no reason to shoot down any other posts. maybe you should post them in the unusual beliefs section and that way they won’t be censored? just a thought. hope this helps.
Eh I say let people vent. After all we can always just avoid those threads.
i’m just glad that i have no real issues just now apart from the normal every day things like shopping, cooking, cleaning etc, i am very lucky that i am relatively symptom free
Religion is like pornography. If you don’t like it just ignore it.
The way religious delusions mess with peoples minds, it seems like pornography wouldn’t do half as much damage.
But I want to say to all the agitated religious believers to just go for a nice walk and stop thinking about this!
I have had religious spiritual delusions, it sometimes comes with the territory (mental illness)
I am no longer delusional but some on here are. I don’t think that these type of delusions can be avoided - as long as they remain in the unusual beliefs section
i don’t have spiritual or religious delusions…i have ponderings…i ponder both ways, yay and nay. i think that’s healthy and i don’t see why this site should be just about how we suffer with delusional thinking. we are all adults and a healthy debate however heated should not be blocked i feel. we all have questions about reality…none of us will find those answers until we die but there is nothing wrong with pondering them whilst we are here. so long as we respect eachother’s beliefs i think it’s a good thing, be it government conspiracies or whether god and the devil exist. be respectful but above all be vocal i think.
i use to have religious delusions but i took control and now i am in the driving seat lol thats what you should do with delusions after you have them, challenge them and try to make sense of it, do research about it so you know all the facts and its not just some mindless ramble in our heads, put fact to fiction if you know what i mean, thats what i do anyway and it works for me.
I have not been delusional in years - but for many years I was very delusional - the spiritual I am a god kind
censorship is what certain regimes do to control that which they find uncomfortable…
what is next…we censor talking about ’ dreams…spaceships…paranoia…
if you don’t like a topic…you have the freedom not to read it.
when i buy a newspaper i don’t read the sports section !
or the classifieds…
or something that could be triggering to my sz…
if there is no choice then we become more bigoted.
Amen to that @darksith!
The topic seems to cause more strife than it manages to bring peace in these quarters, that’s for sure.
Well, if we’re creating a list, can I put in a request to censor all things Star Wars? First off, Jedi IS a religion these days (heck, I’ve been known to put that on census forms). Second, everyone knows Star Trek has way better dialogue.
