My opening in the Ethics/Radical Beliefs Debate has been posted.

Sorry, NRE, for the slight delay, but I had a week from hell at work, and spent the extra time carefully choosing the direction I wanted to take.



I'm watching this one, it seems to be an incredible topic very often glassed over.

Sounds good to me.

Pm me if you want extra input on the wording. It'll be tough to debate you because I usually agree with and star almost all your posts. This will be fun

Im hoping once I get my feet wet here this will be my new home for a while. So I figure in a week or so I will be looking for a new debate, so if there are any takers in that time frame let me know


Obviously controversial debates are the good ones


Peace, NRE.

From what I am reading, (your second post, currently) you will be a welcome addition to the debate team here on ATS. I got about 2 paragraphs in, then immediately stepped back to post this comment. What you're producing is a well thought out position, and I will re-read a few times before I can even continue.

Very nice, NRE. I thrive on intelligent discussion, which is why this is one of my favorite forums on ATS.

Welcome back, bkn. I was disappointed when you never engaged in a debate, for I truly like the way you think. I thought you'd be a good fit here, and now that you're back, we'll be seeing how that proceeds.

Eh , was my fault. My engaging in the Sandy Hook threads back in Dec was amateur of me and i paid for it. ATS did the right thing and benched me from fighter status until cooler heads prevailed. So here i am!!

Thank you Druid, I am so happy that I was able to reintroduce myself in this capacity, and with such a great member and contributor here. Take your time on this, as I hope that this subject, though touchy to say the least will open a new type of discussion that is usually avoided.

Peace, NRE.

Your true character shines through your own admissions. Kudos, my friend.

I expect you to perform rather remarkably here, the major difference being "no noise" to distract you from your thoughts. On topic and focused.

It's what, honestly, we all want with a discussion.

I may as well ask you for a debate, as previously.

If you are serious about being a regular participant in this forum, I owe you that much. I offer all the newcomers here a challenge, and the whole point is to retain interest in intellectual discourse.

You'll have to redeem your absence, however, by providing your own debate topic, of which I will accept. We'll decide our positions after the topic is presented.

Game?

I would be, but Vkey has already challenged me. Still waiting on her to finalize the topic. But I will gladly debate you after.

Very kind words, Druid, you're one of the very best on ATS. Thanks.

My final post is up in the Radical Beliefs Debate.

Now, It's off to the judges!


-------------------------------------------

Debates like that are unique, arguing concepts, rather than points. I'd like to see more debates like that.

It would've been so easy to list radical groups, Al-Quada, Hamas, David Koresh, the PLO or the US government, but without naming names, the discussion revolved around principles and concepts, which was a refreshing change.
