everybody believe on something and believe that they are on the right way. what i want to suggest that when we discuss about religion, no need to be emotional. we only tried to find the truth, right!? the question and answer must be 'intelligent' following by the fact

True, everyone feels their beliefs are the only right ones. Everyone that is who has not had a good education. With a proper education, you realise that there is a lot which we humans do not know, and that humbles you. The religious zealots, they think they know everything!

there are several types of person. first, believe on something and having a wisdom on what their believe. second, believe on something, but know only a little on what their believe third, free-thinking

While it is difficult to separeate emotions from religion, to fully understand one from a religion other than the one you believe in it must be done. Although I have to disagree with "Rocky" you don't need a "proper education" to realize that we as humans are still a long way away from knowing "everything". In my opinion knowing that there is something that is higher or bigger than you is what humbles us. I am admittedly one of those who do get emotional when people start to disrespect my religion. I am not of the generally accepted religion here in the U.S., so I am constantly dealing with people who are convinced that I am going to "Burn in hell" and that they HAVE to save me. Then the emotions run wild.

Happy, most of the time. I have a healthy family that I can provide for and still have some of the nicer things in life. Am I satisfied? I would have to say no I am not. There are many more things I would like to do with and for my family, but right now finances don't allow these things. Am I happy with life here on earth? No. There are too many people willing to hurt another to get what they want or think they need. This lfie has many faults but it does beat the alternative.

Religion is a very emotionally charged subject, hence why people get emotional. I think the right way to term it is "There's no need to get rude and ignorant" when discussing religion.

People can not help but be emotional when they are discussing Religion. They are talking about there core beliefs and something that for many represents there very soul. That being said we must recognize that no amount of reasoning will change their mind. We need to respect the beliefs of others if we expect them to respect ours.

also true, that we must respect each other. that's the reason why when we want to talk about something, we have to be polite. but not silent at all

I don't see a problem discussing religion, I think alot of people take it wrong. I have discussions on religion, I post them based on my opinions or thoughts I would hope that the people that respond to them don't take offense to it, I love to here what others think, whether it is opposite of what I think or not, and I have posted comments on religion as well, I know I don't know evreything and would hope that people would be able to share there own feelings or beliefs. I feel we can learn something new everyday.

bacause sooner or later we cannot avoid this thing. debating on 'what you believe' became nature. and everyone should know how to handle their emotion. and everyone must always tried to find the answer and fact concerning on what their belief. if themself not able to find the answer, the answer became 'what i believe is not true'

I think talk on religion many times divide people which creates emotional effect.I am of the openion that there should be only one religion and it is Humanity.By making different religion we are creating many problems, which becomes headache for humans only.

i agree with only one religon and the humanity. but, may i know what is your opinion about our live and the place where we live now. do you believe that it must be the 'ONE' who creates our universe, that is earth, planets, heaven and all the living things. have you ever though that human is not the creator. human can only transform from 'something' to 'something'. whitout 'something' human creates 'nothing'. the foundations of the mass are proton, electron and neutron. but how can all of this can be exist.
