Good enough. All we have to do is u2u The Vagabond, and he'll set up our thread. Let me know when you get back, and we can start then.

I'd like to set up a new debate. Member adjensen has agreed.

We both:


presuppose that Christian claims as regards Christ's divinity and existence are correct, to avoid the debate being on that, rather than on the Second Coming.


The premise is:

"The Second Coming of Christ is a real event that may soon be upon us."

adjensen will be pro, and Druid42 will be con.

All we need is for adjensen to post in agreement to the terms.

So agreed, thank you for accepting my challenge

I hope to announce winners of the debates completed so far and get the next ones started by late sunday or early monday. Though I've been around my attention span has not been great because of some family business.

We all appreciate your devotion to getting the debates started again, but your family does take precedence. There's no rush on anything.

5. The military installation known as Area 51 is not actually related to extra-terrestrials or extra-terrestrial craft.


I'm up for taking the Pro side on this, if anyone wants to take Con.


Still open for Druid or anyone else.

Indeed.
I have another debate scheduled with anoncholic, but haven't heard back just yet. In the meantime if anyone else wants to suggest another debate and needs an opponent, I'd be keen.

I have not forgotten about you. The running limit is 2 debates per person, and The Vagabond is busy with family issues.

You are in the queue, and will be the next debate, if you wish to wait. I honestly look forward to the debate you are offering, and have already done all the preliminary research to defend my position. I have links bookmarked for future reference, and promise to offer an interesting and challenging debate.

With so many things going on in the world, there are too many.
I'll ponder.

Do you have any?

Lets do something fun. Too much seriousness lately. Seriously.

So that leaves out abortion, socialism, merits of communism, abductions, 9/11.


So that leaves;
Twilight, Edward vs Jacob
Miller lite, Great taste vs less filling


How about something neither of us can prove, but can supply the most convincing argument for.

Is there any other intelligent (bipedal) species inhabiting the Earth, other than human?

I have been kicking around some less serious, less evidence-dependent topics, and today one of our fighters gave me one that I think will be of interest to at least a few people, so here is that, plus a few of my own.

The idea was Star Wars vs Star Trek- which of course is broad enough to allow a million different areas of focus:
A Wookie would probably kill a Klingon in unarmed combat.
The Galactic Empire could conquer the Federation.
The USS Enterprise could defeat an Imperial Star Destroyer.
Jean Luc Picard is wiser than Obi Wan Kenobi.
Mark Hammil is more washed up than William Shatner.
Star Wars fans are generally cooler than Star Trek fans.
Star Trek fans are generally smarter than Star Wars fans.
The Star Wars storyline is more meaningful than that of Star Trek.

etc etc etc... I could probably churn out another 30 propositions without stopping to think- the possibilities are limitless if we have enough sci-fi people here. Not that I'd want to see these topics take over the forum.


As for my own non-star-wars related ideas:
1. Legalizing dueling would solve as many problems as it created.
2. Books are superior to movies.
3. Society really would embrace a costumed vigilante as a hero.
4. All things Disney should be banned.
5. Humans will some day have to pay reparations for their treatment of dogs.
6. All human life is probably just an elaborate situation-comedy set up by other-worldly beings of some kind.


How about one of these from TV?

I'd do Star Wars vs Star Trek, but only if I could be pro Star Trek. (I'd lose my Federation Membership, otherwise)

Or

Legalised dueling. Either side.

Then I humbly accept!


ETA; the correct term is *ahem* Trekker.
