I just recently put a lot of effort into writing a lengthy answer to the following question:
It wasn't until after I wrote it that I realized that it was really just a duplicate of a couple of other question:
- What is the Biblical basis for disbelief in the doctrine of the Trinity?
- Is there Biblical basis for unitarianism?
Since I posted my answer, the question was closed as a duplicate and a bit of a heated debate swelled, first in the comments section and then later in the following Meta post which was started for the very purpose:
Based on the comments made, it seems now that I would have been better off posting my answer to one of those other questions (or both?). In the meta discussion, there was talk about the question eventually being deleted, in which case, I'm assuming, my answer will also be deleted and all that effort wasted. Someone said something on there about the moderators having the ability to migrate answers from one question to another, but if they fail to do that, before the question is deleted, wouldn't that mean my answer would be lost?
So my question is, based on all of those concerns, should I take the initiative to copy my answer to one or both of those other answers, or perhaps move it (copy and then delete the first one)? It seems wrong to me to have duplicate answers floating around.
