In fact there are already enough threads there that we might want to pay attention fairly soon to breaking it down, or perhaps pinning a post that contains a discussion paragraph describing the issues and then linking within that discussion to where the subtopics can be found.
Thanks, Cassius. I agree with all you’ve written. I don’t intend to bring any foreign philosophies into it. There is a different section for that.
Maybe the first sub forum could be “Relevant Texts”, which would just be quotes and links to source material all in one place, and then the rest of the sub forums would be the categories like I suggested: Epicurean Piety, Images of the Gods, The Material Nature of the Gods, Non-Intervention, The Appearance of the Gods.... Gosh, I can think of a lot. We could create all the sub-forums now or write a direction that people can create these kinds of sub-forums as interest inspires.
These are just suggestions. You know better than me what kind of structures work here.
I can Also work at searching through the forum for relevant material and link to it from within these categories. It will all take time, of course, but I can try to split my time between the research and reading and still participating in discussion.
Hopefully, we can pull back in some of the interesting threads that were left hanging in this way too.
Any thoughts, gang?
