    4th thread Aleins More of them and some believe the gods were aliens

    5th thread What is a Jew Are we seeing a pattern here yet?

    6th thread Religion: Concept itself good or bad?

    7th thread The founding fathers on God.

    8th thread Maybe there is a God after all

    9th thread 6 days or 5 billion years ? again creationism vs science

    11th thread Christians Who Mix Church and State Hate Christianty

    13th thread US constitution , $$$$ and God


    So between 8 and 10 of the first 13 threads are about god or religion.

    there have been serious discussions lately about the primacy of the new pope, gay marriage, abortion, tom cruise and his scientology crusade, alien life, the 4th of july etc

    i guess alot of people had a long weekend and decided that it wouild be a good time to get a load off their minds

    who knows

    Our genes maybe in the basement but it does not stop us chosing our point of view from the top.

    Wow...

    But anyways, it's interesting....

    Unfortunately, true....

    Gay and lesbian marriage is one of the topics that I hate most....

    Its extremely dull. Religion must be the subject par excellence where not only will no one change their mind, but no one will say anything new and no one will even acknowledge that anyone else may have a valid viewpoint.

    IMHO the backroom is pretty boring right now

    lately, it's been pretty much the same things being discussed here as always

    just that they have now been packaged in a more blunt way

    Agreed. I have hardly been posting lately because all the threads are so damn boring. God this and comparison that. Yuck.
    GARCIN: I "dreamt," you say. It was no dream. When I chose the hardest path, I made my choice deliberately. A man is what he wills himself to be.
    INEZ: Prove it. Prove it was no dream. It's what one does, and nothing else, that shows the stuff one's made of.
    GARCIN: I died too soon. I wasn't allowed time to - to do my deeds.
    INEZ: One always dies too soon - or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are - your life, and nothing else.

    i fail to understand why so many of you are suddenly saying Backroom is boring. Backroom has always been almost exclusively about discussing all the stuff listed in the threads outlined in the original post

    is the boredom because those threads do not adhere to the usual custom of copying and pasting a long-winded hot air article in the original post?

    the way i see it, that makes those threads more fun than usual. i find copying and pasting long-winded articles to be extremely boring.

    the new trend simply "trimming the fat". getting rid of the silly bunk and presenting only the main idea in the words of the original poster

    forums should be about discussing the patrons' thoughts. not eternal copying and pasting someone else's.

    now i'm here, and history is vindicated.

    I was reffering to those who were saying the topic of god was boring. It was meant to be humourus.

    I also noticed that's it very hard to catch up if you don't read the backroom for a day, let alone two or three, and most threads aren't worth the effort.

    I think I had too much backroom in the last few weeks, i'm taking it easier now
