The structured debates that happen in the Debate Forum, both tournaments and challenge matches, are not about the topic.. I want to make that
They are about your ability to debate.. Any side, any topic.
That is why the topics and "sides" are chosen absolutely randomly. If you participate, you will eventually find yourself arguing a side of an issue
that you do not believe in. That is the true challenge... You will also find yourself arguing a topic you are not interested in and have no knowledge
about.. (Until you research it for the debate of course)
I personally love the Debate Forum as in my opinion, it shows the true caliber of ones intellect and reasoning skills as no other place on ATS.
Also of note.
All of the Terms and Conditions
and rules and regulations for ATS are still in effect
during any debate, in fact we like to think our "Fighters" can hold themselves to an even higher standard.
Excitement, Challenge, Interesting Topics... WOW
Who could ask for more...????
If anyone has any questions I am available via U2U
and I check them at least
once each day..
Good luck to everyone ...
