Thanks mate - I've amended it in a Word Doc with 7 characters to spare!!

Just sent you a U2U for further instructions on how to get it off to you or do you want me to post it in the debate and you delete both of the others?

Done!

The irony? NONE of my Win programs would open the document - so I had to reboot into Linux Mint to read the Microsoft file.


ETA: Please take a look to make sure my edit worked to your satisfaction.

I'm in the middle of a debate right now, but I have a topic I'd really love to engage in after I'm done with this one. Figured I'd post it now and if I can find an opponent we'll have a couple days to prepare.

I want to argue that humans will survive longer than planet Earth. With so much doom and gloom leading up to the end of 2012, I sort of want to show much lasting potential we really have. The other side has ample arguments to make it a tough match.

So, to summarize:

Would anyone be willing to debate the premise: HUMANS WILL SURVIVE LONGER THAN EARTH. I will be arguing in favor, and the debate will start after my current debate concludes.

Poor Sublime doesn't realize Sky is relentless. I don't think any member has ever won a debate with him.

Don't listen to Druid. Ive lost plenty of debates in this Forum. Hard lessons learned. He is also deflecting from the fact that he rules the forum as our #1 Ranking Fighter I and others could never hope to catch up with in their wildest dreams.

My second response is up.

And can I just say that this is very enjoyable.

I have NEVER officially debated before in my life - not even at school.

I got a good laugh out of you tearing shreads off me - so I thought I'd do the same (hehehe)

Come at me!!!


Yeah...its a lot of fun. I think about the Debates even when Im offline. The polarization is the most fun to me. It requires some creativity to paint an item as the worst thing ever or best thing ever.

Your second responds paints a really, really grim picture of Religion...and now I have to go and correct that image. Thanks a lot.

Second reply in the Religion-Debate is up. You are invited to come in, read and learn little known facts about Religion in America, in the Middle East and the World in general.

Haha

Reading people's debates makes me feel rusty! I sent my messages out for today. Nothing agreed on yet. I have free time over the next weekish so if I end up with two I don't mind at the moment.


Nice to see religious debates done in a civil way.

Second post in the Columbus debate is up.

I think we're showing that speed debating is also a potential thing to consider.

When I posted I thought there was an outside shot we could knock the whole thing off by morning, looks like by tonight more probably.

Hiya Patrick,


Would anyone be willing to debate the premise: HUMANS WILL SURVIVE LONGER THAN EARTH. I will be arguing in favor, and the debate will start after my current debate concludes.


I would gladly accept that challenge !! I was looking for an interesting idea for a debate while having a break and this one fits like a glove !

Count me in !! If you don't mind, that is, and if the debate is approved.

My final is up too.
Considering you are a new debater you did fantastic. I do think your first post was the strongest, btw. It got me reeling.

Mate - awesome stuff, that was really thought-provoking for me.

Being a catholic and Alpha leader it was actually personally difficult to drag some skeletons out of the closet.

LOL - I also need to articulate myself better, my request for proof on the monuments was focused on the Sphinx and Pyramids only.

Posing the question and then allowing my opponent to choose which side to debate was a friends idea - a personal challenge we had a bet on - I have printed out this debate for her perusal.

Thanks again mate - that was a real treat!

Here's my second post in my attempt to prove that Columbus had a negative influence.

I figured you knew (and also that you are likely religious yourself because of your references to the Almighty), but I pretended not to know just for fun.

Just read the Time-Travel debate. Im glad I wont have to judge it, it could go either way. Lots of laugh-out.loud moments. My favorite:




a transmitter is one thing, but how does one put a receiver in the past or future?
