Thanks for your participation! You're still new and it appears there are a few things about canonize.com you don't yet fully understand.
Last week I sent out an [http://canonizer.com/thread.asp/2/1/2 e-mail to all direct supporters] that I wanted to 'fork' the atheist camp structure to adequately represent the two different types of atheists: Those that feel comfortable having the atheist camp as a sub camp of the Mother Nature camp, and also at the same time, for those atheists that do not.
It's better to object to something, and to work to find something everyone can agree on, before someone actually does it, as that avoids a lot of extra submission, objection, and resubmission work on the camps.
Also, you gave as your reason for your proposal to move the camp back as: "There is already an atheist camp".
The way the point of view tree structure works, is to find the most agreeable and well accepted doctrines, such as there appears to be more people that accept mother nature as a powerful creator, with almost God like attributes. That is why the mother nature camp is at the top of the POV structure. Most camps are currently in a supporting sub camp to the most agreed on doctrines specified in that super camp.
Another good example of parallel POV structures branches are the quolophile [http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/88/9 "Computational Functionalists"], and [http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/88/37 Those computational functionalists that do not like Qualia].
So far, that I know of for sure, the only descenters, are a few of the people in the Atheists camp.
Also, since you are currently in a sub camp of the camp I just moved, you have the right to object to my proposed move. This would be better than proposing yet another move to move it back, as you have currently proposed.
So, I still believe we should fork the atheist camp, so those atheist that want to support the mother nature camp can, and so we can have a second Atheist camp for all the others.
Peerlinfinity, the question is, which camp would you like to be in? And / or how do you think we could best structure the POV tree to most concisely represent what everyone wants and believes?
Also, is there anyone else that the current structure doesn't adequately represent what you believe / want? If so, please help us restructure things so we can survey for and best represent exactly what everyone believes / wants. We can only get what everyone wants, to the degree they are willing tell us what you want so we can adequately represent all such. It's much better to participate in the discussion before changes are made, where we can easily find the best way to represent what everyone believes, than to just object or redo things after the after someone has put in the work.
