Would anyone object to a new Virus list rule that states that Christian apologetics is off topic? I don't see any reason to waste resources arguing with Christians (let them believe whatever they want), and I don't see any obvious way to disabuse them of their fanatasies even if we wanted to (though a university education seems to help).

Alternatively we could say that every topic is valid for this list and leave it up to individuals to do their own filtering. What do you think?
