    Satan Is Lord

    Get your interest?  So as an athiest I get pretty uptight about all the signs that "praise the lord" along nearly every/any highway. The John 3:16 signs at games and our constant bombardment reminding us to "seek him".   So if I post a sign in my...

    Some People Just Annoy Me

    You come at some people with logic and they won't accept it, you give them backed up scientific facts and they still won't accept it. I just don't understand these people!! e.g. I had a debate with someone who said a chiropractor could cure the common cold... I MEAN COME ON if...

    Only The Strong

    I enjoy a good debate because I care if my beliefs are built on solid logic and as such, I want them challenged in order to see if my opponents are able to recognize faulty reasoning or other chinks in my armor regarding my world views. Debate is what set me on the path to...

    All Natural Argumentative

    I swear, I was born this way. I've always been a sponge for information and held strong beliefs about things. Combined with the tendoncy to dig my heels in, I began developing debate skills. I'm obstinate, but not so much that I would refuse to see the valdiity of an opposing...

    Power.

    Power is my motive behind everything.  As bad as this may sound, I just like being in control and having power.  I enjoy proving others wrong regardless of what it takes to get there....  I'm not a complete b*tch about it, but I will sometimes go out of the way...

    Dr. Assisted Suicide Should Be Legal

    Discussion Is the Best Form of Learning

    I really like to debate. To discuss with someone about something either of us holds dear, or to use it as a learning opportunity if I really don't understand the allure of a certain position. Value debate is fun as long as you don't get bogged down in real world examples...

    I have just had one of the best debates I have

    had in 4 years. Worthy opponent and I just spent a long time discussing something. And at the end of it, don't hate each other. The issue was unresolved. But that is often irrelevant.

    It Keeps the Grey Matter In Shape

    Ok, So If I Willingly Share My Wife With Other Men Is This Cheating?

    I believe if you (the spouse) are willing to share your spouse with another that they are not cheating on you. Cheating is a state of mind---any thoughts?

    at my school. It's fun to debate random topics and just be given one, because if I don't agree with it, it makes it more challenging, and I like challenge. It also gives the debate less a chance of being biased. But anyways, if you guys have a topic, I'd be happy to debate down...
