I know I haven't been around as long as some people, but I feel like I have been around long enough to have a basic understanding of the purpose of this site and what kinds of questions are acceptable. Usually I'm in agreement with the voting of others on most questions and answers. But I was particularly surprised by the voting response to this question:
From a general stack-exchange standpoint, it's a definitively answerable question. It's not asking for a list or for opinions or for a discussion. Besides some minor, language-barrier-related formatting issues, it seemed to me like a relatively well-asked and well-sourced question, especially for someone who was fairly new to the site at the time.
From a Christianity.SE standpoint, it is definitely a question about Christianity. It's not asking for "truthiness". It's not asking which side is correct in some controversial subject. It's just asking a basic question of fact, essentially: "Does the Bible contain any details about Jesus' childhood as the Quran does?" You might say that the answer is too easy, but for someone who has no Christians around them to ask, what other option would they have other than reading the whole of the Bible to get their answer?
The question was never put on hold, or even edited, so I guess I should assume that the community did feel like it was a question that was applicable to the site, but just not a very good one. But I guess I just don't see what's so bad about it. It's a rudimentary question, for sure, but for someone who grew up in a Muslim community with no exposure to Christianity, it's probably a very common question people might have. The only reason why it was down-voted that I can come up with is that, as a community, we'd rather not be answering rudimentary questions about Christianity from outsiders, but I doubt that's the actual reason. So, what am I missing?
