      From time to time, we have engaged in some rather vigorous debate on this forum concerning the topic of God.

      I wanted to paste this recent article from Baptist Press as an information piece.

      I believe that it sheds some light on some of the things that I have been saying for some time...

      Note that I am not trying to disrupt anyone's belief system or "ram" anything down anyone's throat - You can just read it and deal with the news in any way you would like...

      Here's the article:

      That's OK Robb... I am working with some other Chrisitian guys to start our own site...

      Look for UCORA.org - we will be launching publically soon.

      We will not have thought police there - but we will expect people to act with decorum and to use their real names...

      Robb, how is it that when I post something that I enjoy it is "unsolicited propoganda" - but when you post something you enjoy, it is a moderator exercising his rights?

      I recall a thread where you dealt with how drunk you get on a regular basis... Surely my posts are not much different than that - both topics are sensitve to some folk...

      Ok guys, settle down. Actually I agree with both of you. GL - I agree with a need for a Christian outlet and a valid discussion board for the MANY different points of Christianity and theology that we would disagree on.

      HOWEVER - I must agree with Robb that this board does not have the appropriate forum, and indeed for those who work diligently at moderating it - a religious forum would cause quite a bit more work for them - just by the nature of the discussions.

      Furthermore, it is impossible to expect someone to respect Christian viewpoints by disobeying the rules and trying to force change in a very personal belief system. You should know this if you intend to moderate a religious forum.

      All of that said, I would be happy to continue this discussion on your new forum, and I look forward to it.

      Did I miss the "recent scientific evidence"? It talks about them, but it states none?

      This is exactly the reason why we got rid of the "other" forum... :rolleyes:

      I think that the article was posted as an informational peice so there's not really a lot of reason for it to remain open for discussion.
