I have been able to spend sometime recently reading blogs and leaving comments. Of course my interests have been mainly blogs that deal mainly with theology, creation science, just about any blog that brings up the subject of God and how He created everything.
On my road trip across the blogsphere I have been introduced to several highly intelligent people, well intelligent compared to me so that bar is not set too high. The intelligent people exist on both sides of the debate. I find that they contribute interesting information and point me in the direction of new information that I normally would not have came across in my normal life journey.
Now every road has a bump or two in it and so does my trip through these blogs. Sometimes I get the sense that some people do not take the time to read a comment fully before scrolling to the bottom to respond to what they did read. I also get flashbacks to the grade school playground with the arguments of, “because I am right and your wrong, that’s why!”.
So, the thought I would like to put out there to my one or two readers is this: Do you find it easier or harder to discuss topics of religion in blog comments as you would, face to face with friends or strangers? Do you approach these same topics with coworkers, family or friends as often as you do on-line?
