Hi Pinkie, I've narrowed your list down to debates I'd be interested in.

I imagine the depiction of Muhammad would be topical right now. Other silly ideas: 

*Islam promotes violence. 

*The government should regulate our diets/cut off health care from those who are irresponsible.


I'm up for a debate on any of these 3 topics with anyone interested. Send me a u2u and we can work out the details. 

Regards

I'll defer a debate with Pinke if mr-lizard wishes to engage in a challenge. Unless, of course, Pinke decides to run two debates.

I wish to engage seabag in a debate, the topic being "Islam promotes violence." I am vying for the con position, but we are hashing details u2u. Patience.

Officially submitted for approval, a debate between seabag and Druid42. The topic will be "Islam promotes violence", with seabag opening and myself in the con position.

Awaiting. seabag is ready to start.

Oops didn't mean to leave the 'fur' topic in there.

I quite like the communicating with aliens one, although my side would be that it's quite responsible to try and communicate.

And this debate is now finished.

Heff, it was a pleasure debating you. You have done exceptionally well !


This experience, for me, has pushed boundaries. Believing that we have a soul, believing that O.B.Es, much like N.D.Es are metaphysical or at the very least esoteric, and having to research to find other possible alternative solutions was a real challenge. I am a little surprised to see where science is at and it kinda shook my beliefs. How I wish that in this particular case, we had more than 3 posts...

First debate ever huh? Kudos, Heff !

Hi guys.
I've been done with some yukky bug and haven't even been able to get my rebuttal finished in my debate with Druid. Been mostly in bed so I could get over it.

But I'll catch up today, I promise.

Done all my responses today.


Sorry I haven't been around in the last 48, had a short hospital visit adventure.

Side note: keep in mind am not in America, so often when persons send me messages I'm either asleep or at work!

The opening statement has been posted.

Did you all have as much trouble coming up with a topic to debate as I am?

We're trying to avoid politics, and possibly social issues.

Even the pre-made lists I found on Google didn't seem to offer much beyond that arena.

I'm starting to think I have the creativity of a shoe-box! Yipes.

The Internet: Greatest creation since writing or downfall of the human race?

Pyramids: End result of normal cultural evolution or worldwide proof of ET vistation?

Satire or Editorial: Which is the most effective shaper of public opinion?

Gasoline prices: Proof of limited resources or price gouging made perfect?

Does Art Imitate Life or Does Life Now Imitate Art?

A few off the top of my head.

Thanks, oddly enough, I'd feel comfortable with either side of two on that list.

We'll see what the opponent says.

Anyone up for a very controversial debate?

"Marriage should be defined as being between one man and one woman."

I will take the "pro" position, and have my opening statement mostly done (it'll go up in "Rants" if no one is game, lol)

Myself and mr-lizard look like we're doing: 'Trying to communicate with distant aliens is irresponsible.'

I'll be taking the pro of that statement if it gets approved. (I really like losing!)

Don't mind doing two at once really.

Adjensen... ! I'd totally think about doing that assuming your opening statement isn't an evil trap. >.>

Would that fluffy little puppy as my avatar (his name is Oscar!) hide any evil?

If you accept, I'll post my opening tomorrow morning, once approved.
