Debating politics, social issues, film, music etc all make sense because they all entail factual information to attempt to prove a point or persuade someone else. Unless you're debating on historical events and what they mean, theres no point in arguing about religion. Its faith and belief, something that soley rests on individual perspective and personal experience...its not debateable.....although, right now i seem to be engaging in debate against debating.
Welcome to the debate! Whether God exists is not pointless from my perspective, because I know He does. I do agree that it may seem like a waste of time from a non-theist perspective, because they must rely solely on the limits of empirical evidence, which in my opinion, will never prove Godís existence or be sufficient to sway opinion.
That being said, I always enjoy a challenge to my beliefs. Without it, I would not grow either in faith or intellect. Many of my faith choices are not the same as when I was younger. It was through debate and digging into the Word that I believe I have grown into a more enlightened individual.
