The title is fine with me, no complaints at all. Seems you are getting the hang of the debate forum, as that was a very nice opening post, solidly presented.

Off to present my opening.....

Given the season ( and a thread that I just read ) I find myself with a desire to have a seasonally appropriate debate:

Belief In Santa: Beautiful Custom or Humbug???



If anyone is interested, I would very much like to argue the pro and not the con.

My opening is up in the Voynich Manuscript Debate.

Sublimecraft, you are one tough nut to crack. You covered every aspect of the MS that I was going to refute, and I couldn't find an opening.

That's ok, I thought of a new route.


Very challenging. Very Interesting.

I think that I can take the "Scrooge" perspective, if you like

Sounds like we have a debate! Would you prefer to go first or second?

ETA: Of course I'll wait for another debate mod to approve this, since I'm in it.

I'd love to do that one, but I'll humbly decline, for another I'm seeking approval on.

adjensen wants to do round three, the final in the Time Travel debate series.

Topic: Time Travelers may have influenced advances in technology. (TT Series, Part 3.)

I'll take pro, he'll have the con. We've agreed to the 3 post style (the 1 post persuasion match was interesting!), so it's a normal debate. Can we get approval?

Approved.

Hah! Clever dog, he beat me to it. Darn you, adjensen!


Honestly, I have Sublimecraft in another, so I won't take a third. Two at once is good. I'm not greedy.

Go ahead and post first, I have to get cranky enough to make a case

( Ponders editing to no for reasons of hilarity...)

This post edited by Heff for the sheer joy. Oh, and as an American, escalation is in my nature.

My second post is up

It's a game-changer.

My head is on the chopping block.

Do me a favour and edit my arguments against Heff to be winning ones

My opening post in the conclusion to the Time Travel debate is up.

Tech. Advances due to Time Travel.

Talk about fringe. Well, such a subject deserves a fitting ending.

Very nice.

If you understand the format of this debate and have the time and interest to judge it, please send me a message.

I have replied to all of my messages, and have the usual ones outstanding.


If you think I haven't replied and want a reply, please let me know. Currently look fairly on trackish for a debate with Druid, but we see.


I guess with judging, ideally is best not to be a fighter?
