This is a discussion I've been hosting for several years on the topic of religion. The group name was suggested several years ago by Reba.
As to your comments on the recent discussion, I would like to know more about just what it was that you expected. I welcome your feedback, but if you have anything to offer worth taking seriously, you are going to have to contribute more than fustian disapproval.

We were disappointed. The name - Scientific Examination of Religion - implied the program would offer a critical, scientific analysis of religion; but the discussion did not conform to any qualitative or quantitative methodology. Instead, the discussion was a highly opinionated summary of historical events that did not conform to any historiographical methodology; nor did the discussion delve into the sociological causes. Hopefully the discussion leader will be better prepared next time.
