I was wondering what would happen if instead of focusing on what we don't agree on; we could start by focusing on what we do agree on? Take for example the classic atheist vs. theist threads that center around God's existence. If we boil both sides down to it we come to two conclusions.
Theists say there is an objective purpose: God
Atheists say there isn't an objective purpose: God
While both sides oppose each other they also at the same time agree on one key aspect, and that is a God is necessary in order for an objective purpose to exist. So why not try to find evidence of an objective purpose? I mean would we have to look very far to find evidence of one?
The conclusion I have come to is; NO! All you have to do is step back and look at forum itself. Everyone here regardless of race, gender, location, and belief, are here and continue to come here for one objective purpose and that is to discuss God and things that relate to God. Whether it be an atheist professing their disbelief in a God, or a theist professing their belief; they are both in the end united under a common objective purpose and that is; God.
