Taking in the shoes of "the other side" is absolutely essential for the development of human consciousness. It should be taught in first grade. Whether its to learn appeciation of the opponent or to learn the oppondnts weaknesses, its absolutely essential to be able to flex the mind.

Each and every one of you should read books you disagree with.

Americandingbat gets it.


I read lots of books and like discussing lots of things, it's just one or two things are personal to me and I wouldn't want to discuss with anyone at all. Not in an ignorant way ... I just mean the actual conversation itself. It's hard to explain, but I'm not too worried.


I would like to meet you, whatukno in a debate. I don't agree with everything you say but 90% of the time you say it very well and I love your avatar piccie. I enjoyed the debate of yours I read through. I honestly think some sides of a debate are absolutely a handicap but its entertaining to see someone try.

So long as the debate isn't about human sexuality I'll have you too Kron.


Even if it was about human sexuality it would be fine ... it would be pretty hilarious to have us both on the opposite of our usual sides ahaha

I'll debate with everyone *rips shirt off* rawr.

Okay ... maybe that's just trolling.
Never mind.

I do and they make me relly emotional! Does that mean I am immature? At least I read all kinds of things, not just what I believe in. I love to red though.

I hereby apologize to whatukno and Ian McLean for the abortion debate...I will say that both of you did epicly...it still ranks as one of the more in depth debates I have read...

Now...where is Nanny Boo Boo? There is some fighting to be done around here!

Nope, sorry, you don't get forgiven for that debate.

I think I deserve at least 1 political debate in this tourney for that nightmare.

Hmmm, I've already sent one to chissler and to semper, I'll send another now.

I've got the beer stocked up already (although that might not be so much of a good idea
)

So...any update on when we can expect to start?

Of course...this will now start when I have a weekend planned away from ATS...

I think the Marine in charge is sick with the flew. We might have to wait another week


Ehm, i thought that a Marine was supposed to fight-on where others gave up.

It's not, and I have proof...

Friends don't let friends debate drunk

Even though I'm not in the debate. How come we have to wait for the debate to happen? Is it difficult or does one mod have control on the debate forum?
