Group Description

This group is for discussing Christian philosophy. Philosophy is Christian by reflecting the uniqueness of Christian experience. The discussion of theology, philosophy and science at a fundamental level is welcome. Topics can range from cosmology and quantum theory to ethics, mysticism and the philosohy of religion. Questions, discussions, the presentation of theses, book reviews and notices, and even formal debates are welcome. The list is not for historical or exegetical questions per se.

St. Thomas Aquinas provides a model for Christian philosophy. This model is based on openness to the existent as revealed by both traditional reflection and contemporary science. It is a model open to the insights of diverse cultures and perspectives. In honoring this model, we seek to emulate his open search for truth.

The group is for members only. New members should write an introduction giving their reasons for joining, brief background, and possibly outlining their stances on issues.

While the group is primarily for Christians, it is not required that members be Christian. It is required that members have a genuine interest in the issues outlined, and be respectful of others, even in criticizing them.

Posts should be named clearly. Discussions that raise separate issues should be split so posts are focused and aptly named. Interminable and repetitive discussions are strongly discouraged, and may result in suspension.

Courtesy in the spirit of Christian charity is a requirement. Members are encouraged to ask questions on unclear statements rather than to assume that a poster is in error. Complaints about behavior should be first raised with the offending party by private email, and in the spirit of charity. Only then should the moderator be addressed for intervention.

Attacking others personally is grounds for banning. The purpose of the group is rational discourse, not emotional venting.
