This is a bounce-out from a thread about 'opinions' [ https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=574371 ] OK, so on this list is "INTERPRETATION-A JOURNAL OF BIBLE AND THEOLOGY" The topic of the month in this Journal is the place religion plays in climate change; "The subject of this issue of Interpretation is climate change. It is arguably the most important theological and ethical issue of our time, overshadowing all others—war, hunger, poverty, racism—because it affects all others. Yet, public and political denial continues. The religious community ought to be in the forefront of a movement to address climate change" Anyone fancy discussing this? No, I'm not pushing the subject (!), my point is that this isn't really a legitimate subject for discussion on PF, is it? So the question is... how does PF decide if a peer-reviewed article is appropriate for discussion?.. or more to the point, how does a PF forum member know that they should not be discussing some matters [notwithstanding the list of banned subjects], before receiving a chastisement?
