Feel free to check my other answers & you'll find I've rarely posted the link to the website. Not all JWs do. For me personally, I don't just because usually I'm able to fit enough information in my answer with supportive scriptures from the Bible & other reference material to sufficiently answer the immediate question at hand. But every now & then I might if it's a very in-depth question, or more than one question listed on the same thread, & YA space doesn't allow enough room for the entire answer, because the link will take them to more Bible-based information on their question. (that is what many people come to the R&S forum for, right, Bible-based answers?) But that's just me, & I have no problem with others who choose to do so more often. After all, it makes perfect sense to post a link that one thinks is helpful for providing even further information on a subject. Many people do so on this forum, not just JWs. If you don't see it from others, then you aren't on here very often. Just go thru a few questions & you'll find plenty of other links that others have posted for reference. And regarding atheists specifically,what reference or research material are their beliefs based on exactly? Therefore, of course they wouldn't post a link, because what reference or research material could they possibly post a link to?... I actually appreciate when people post links to other helpful information pertinent to the question at hand. At least they cared enough to actually provide something that is an actual attempt at providing info for an answer to a question, rather than a 2-sentence rant or opinion that some people call an answer. Aren't actual answers, sources, & reference materials what YA is for?
