At the risk of returning to topic...

Round Two of the debate tourney is done! Congratulations to semperfortis, maria_stardust, nyk537, Ian McLean, chissler, schrodingersdog, constantwonder, and either ragster or Skyfloating
And well fought to all!

I'm thinking that maybe in a couple weeks the debate forum will be ready for some new blood. Anyone else interested? It'd be nice to fight a fellow newbie first, rather than get totally pummeled by one of the current fighters -- I've been following the tournament and it's a tough bunch.

Any non-9/11-related topic, I would take either side just to get some practice in

Yeah, MS is back!
We were going to be naughty but kinglizard set us straight and I made a graceful exit.
Did I describe us accurately?

Indeed..


And I have to concur with kinglizard here, but I couldn't let that statement slide...

I'd like to congratulate Frankidealist35 and OZWeatherman for taking on the challenge and starting a debate.

I wish you both good luck.

OK this must be the public forum?

Would anyone care for challenge match? I am attempting to sharpen my debate skills and while I may only be good for a point, Thats still one point more to your name?

Any takers?

Just sent you a U2U as well but want to shout-out here too so MemoryShock knows I took his advice and am looking for an opponent on my topic.

I am new to the forum, have no education in formal debate and am intimidated, needless-to-say, but want to try my hand at it.

The topic/title I am proposing is "Codex Alimentarius - TEOTWAKI or Safe at Last?". I will take the Con/TEOTWAKI position.

If you are interested I would like to do opening statements this Saturday and try to wrap it up by the following Saturday at the outside -- obviously stuff happens, but goals are good, right?

Cheers!
TWISI

Then I shall let you make the opening statement on Saturday. I shall make mine after yours on Saturday..Unless you post at 11:59 pm in which case I shall make my opening statement from the pro position on Sunday.

I should warn you though I have high specialized Ninja training in Food handling and recreational and educational drug use as well as a chip From Alcoholics Anonymous... Just to say I am ready to expound upon the virtues of the codex.....

Great! I am looking forward to being schooled by you, and hope I am not too unmercifully paddled due to a poor performance as a pupil.



I just asked MS about the opening statement and am happy to go first.
I will make every effort to post as early as possible, I am on PST.

Afraid but undaunted,
TWISI

I'm interested if anyone would like to debate. Don't care if the topics range from conspiracy theories, creationism, politics or the economy.

One of the current fighters, Ian McLean, had the courtesy to make me aware of your post and suggest that I might be interested in the challenge.

He was right.

I wouldn't be able to start until after Tuesday, because this weekend is busy for me, but if you're willing to wait, I'd love to debate anything non-9/11.

Ian suggests cryptozoology; I don't know if he has a specific topic in mind, but I'm up for it. You could pick a topic and side, or we could ask him and the folk over in the Fight Club Pub to assign something.

What do you think?

Please say yes – then I can get my fighter status and not be such a Peeping Tom

If you guys can't come up with a topic the mods are usually really good at picking them.

Whatever you do, for god's sakes, do not trust Ian.

Luckily I don't think there's a pink unicorn floating around in my past for Ian to betray me over


Hmm ... maybe something about unicorns ...

BTW SchroDog, The Last Unicorn was one of my little sister's absolute all-time faves. Let your stepdad know he's loved in the Dingbat household

What will out, will out. I admire Schro's eagerness for wearing the pink, and I am proud to have offered him avenue though which to express himself.

We're with ya, Schro! You go, guy!

I'll join in the whole congratulating Schro Dog for his bravery...but let's not forget that I am the one suffering this indirect, yet inhumane assault upon my online personality...:shk:


 


That said...good on you guys for setting up a challenge match. Be sure to communicate via u2u and let us all know when the details are hammered out and you want to begin...

Just so the public knows, I accept the challenge. Looking forward, also a topic I'll ALWAYS be pro-for is Video Games incase anyone wants to debate.

I'm fairly certain I have finally understood how the process works. I am up for a debate.

In addition, I had what I find to be an interesting topic/title to debate (which cropped up in a thread I was on today) which I believe has some merit on both sides of the equation. "Militarization Of The Police -- Is the police becoming increasingly distant from its ability to serve civilians?"

Either way, I'm up for the challenge, whatever the topic, whatever the side.
