Good thing Heff took you up on that one... I was waiting in the wings, mwah-haw-haw-haw.

Then, do you agree:

Debate 1: AI is inevitable.
Debate 2: The WWW will become AI. (Persuasion Match.)
Debate 3: AI will be beneficial to mankind?

You have not stated your positions. Please do so so a (another) Mod can approve the debates. i'll take pro or con, on any of those topics. I love to bite off more than I can chew. It's how I learn.

Maybe /something/ can happen to Heff. Then you'd be free to take his position.

Agreed.


As for pro and con? I actually would prefer to take pro on 1&2 but con on 3.


Being that I can see both sides, I have no preference. If you've got one, seize it. Otherwise I will, by default, take con, since you tabled the suggestion(s).

You have Pro on topics 1 and 2, and Con on topic 3.

I will defend accordingly.

Now officially submitted for Mod approval, and upon that, let the series begin!

I love the whole idea and format of this debate, and the topic " AI " is just gravy


Good luck to you both.

Last time I side stepped approving my own debate, my fellow mods pulled me aside and said "YOU CAN APPROVE DEBATES DUDE!!!!"

So, in the spirit of that?

DEBATE APPROVED.

Then hecky-yaw, get this thing going!


(I saw that somewhere too, when Mods participate in debates, they are auto-approved. Good clarification there, for future reference.)

On with the mayhem, and the first debate!

Your move.....

Since Heff rebuffed my advances and jumped into a threesome with Druid42, I guess I'm left on the corner to find some company.

Proposed topic:

"Journalism is a dying profession."

I can take either pro or con, though I'll caution you that I entered university as a journalism major.

I must admit the idea sounds interesting, we did just face off and this quote scares me...



entered university as a journalism major.



But, I'm up to giving it a " go " if no one else does.

Okay, you're up -- are you taking "pro" or "con"?

I'm still looking for a first debate and would like to propose to anyone willing to take me on.

- Consumerism is taught or a natural human desire

- More importance is placed on consumerism than important morals and values

- Practical learning is more beneficial than theoretical learning

- Individual student tests in schools is a poor measure of a students knowledge

Feel free to take pro or con on either of the topics and PM, or post in here if you are interested. I do check this thread regularly.
