Why are religious views deemed above any other views that people hold? Why are they not subject to the same questioning and rigour that one might apply to, say, belief in the "flat earth", or UFOs, or cold fusion, or any scientific theory. Why are they held sacrosanct such that questioning them is verboten? I am not talking about trolling or being rude or disrespectful (which should not be acceptable in any thread) but why is it seemingly wrong to hold up to scrutiny the views of anyone who claims something that someone else thinks is not provable? Why must we put religion on a pedestal that puts it out of reach of questioning and interrogation by those that don't believe as they do?
