I know that the very first thing you're going to do is shake your head and say "typical", but this seems a little biased. Yes, Christians will come and we will make our statements. You will come and make your statements. People of every religion are welcome, or else you're not as open-minded as you claim to be. Where do you stand?

Snow Leopard -- I think you missed David's point; which was that, historically, every debate on Christian appologetics on Virus has yielded nothing. Basically, the same arguments are rehashed with each new Christian, and nobody here learns anything, while the Christian goes away with a bad taste in their mouth... I for one am all for changing that record, and a good way to do it would be to declare that Christian Apologetics, per say, are off topic. Discussions with Christians, on the other hand, are exactly what this group needs more of.

If a Christian actually wants to debate Christian Apologetics, they can do that in private emails, or on some other, more related, list.
