I have no earthly idea why this board exists.

I strongly suspect that Dr. Bob wished to cleanse the other boards of religion by having a place to shunt it off to. But I could be overly cynical. At any rate, once he began the board, he seemed to support its existence beyond that purpose.

My idea wouldn't be lectures per se, but rather people asking questions about customs or beliefs rather than making assumptions. An ask the expert sort of thing. Since lately questions about Judaism especially have come up regarding separation of sexes in services or cleanliness rituals or the reason for Jewish law in general. I'm sure there is similar confusion about Muslim, Hindu, etc. practices. I always figure it's better to ask the source. Well, not the source I suppose, but you know what I mean.

I always figure it's better to ask "Why on earth do you..." than just think "Boy, ... sure is (insert adjective here)." And there aren't many opportunities to do that.
