So, how did they do?

We know it was a funky debate, this our first attempt. But we will refine the format and have many more.

Please vote on which team you think best presented their point, not on your opinion of the topic.

We tried for the first time and it did not turn out so good. I did'nt get a chance to participate and help my team which is my own fault, and with UP gone missing, that lead us down too.

Maybe next time we can do better.

Due to the fact the debate was ended premature(imo), I voted "Neirther team presented a convincing case".

And I also thought that the debate was ended before either side could have come to a conclusion of their evidence. Maybe we should try again when the members arent missing?

stating that the transistor was done solely by humans... Even though I believe otherwise...that team did the best job of defending their side, imho....
Good job!

I enjoyed debating and the subject was very challenging.

UP going missing didn't help the other team and I felt for KOS and Magestica.
I don't think any of us understood how demanding the subject and format would be before we started and so we have all learn't something.

I'm pleased that William hasn't given up on the whole idea.I think a place for more structured debate can be fulfilling if you are participating and interesting and fun if you are watching.

I'm looking forward to the next debate.

Well said, J_B: debate is demanding at the best of times and to conduct a forensic exercise without a "live" audience, and at a considerable electronic distance is no mean feat.
Look at your average TV "debate"!...sigh...aaarrrgh.
Congrats to particpants for their efforts, and to Willliam for the idea.
Certainly this should be pursued.

We need a more decisive margin to declare a winner here.
