    Ok, here's a question.

    "Religion" once upon a time just meant "A way of doing things"

    Just because people have a certain "way of doing things", should their threads be cesspooled for no discernable reason based on a moderator's particular "way of doing things"?

    Or should highly debateable questions be open for discussion without dogma or fear of the topic "being too religiously linked"?

    If you have a problem with moderation, you should PM the mod in question or the administrator.

    Calling people "scared" is not a really good way of making a first impression...noob!

    Let's see, you stick a couple of Anthropological pieces together to generate "Science" and then attach religion to it. That doesn't make it Science, it doesn't imply a scientific method, it doesn't even considering empirical evidence.

    In essence it's your "Belief" being written down and you are trying to sell it as credible science. It's not.... especially when you consider that any biblical textures are metaphors. Do you think there was such a place as The River Styx? or Hades? Which of course predate's Christianity.

    In all those instances they are but metaphor's, they are purposely "symbolic" so people could make their own opinion up about them, that's one of the main reasons why religion has been so successful at sucking so many people into it. The funny thing is that people get treated for mental disorders for suffering Mania or Divergence caused by relying purely upon their own reasoning while ignoring empirical evidence.

    All I can suggest is if you decide to start a new thread, make sure you note that it's "your belief" and do not point to it being "Scientifically proven", or you will be ostracised as a Charlatan.

    Yeah, we want to stop the world investigating your great discovery.

    Next time, try a more constructive approach and you may get more constructive feedback.
