As someone who believes in the greater good, I suggest shutting down this forum.
Although I believe also in the lesser good, I concur.

The theists are dissatisfied with the site.

The non-theists are dissatisfied with it.

Those who think logically and also those who do not think logically are dissatisfied with it.

The smart ones, not so smart ones, and less smart ones are dissatisfied with what's going on.

Or maybe it's just me, maybe it's just that I've hung around too long...
Sounds like a typical philosophy site. How else is it going to be?
Well... we could organize a movement to line all philosophers against the wall, and shoot them, except for me, of course.

The problem with philosophy is that there are barriers of faith, IQ, education, and psychology, the differentness of which can't be bridged or broken through, and therefore dialogue devolves very quickly to smelly shit.

Getting over these barriers is what philosophy is for, and it's never going to be easy.

That's true. It's also true that "impossible" is a proper subset of "not easy" if you attempt the impossible.

It gets even harder when you can't even tell the difference between "possible" and "impossible".

Like when you believe that omniscience is possible.

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool. --Richard Feynman
