    I Love Debating

    Even though I know that people somehow tend to grow tired while I am debating, after all I love it. I mean, I'm a linguistic person who likes to say whatever things that go through my mind, and I don't like to keep my feelings. I have to say what's on my mind and what I am...

    Lets Debate, Not Argue

    Does anyone else find that this seems to be very hard for most people? Many of the people around me are totaly incapable of having a reasonable discussion about anything more controversial than the weather.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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?

    There Should Be One "adult" Age Threshold

    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...

    It Keeps the Grey Matter In Shape

    I like a good discussion, a debate. It really has the ability to test oneself and one's understanding. Debating the facts of a given subject can bring out information and highlight essential items which are the basis for making well reasoned decision and for making choices. One...

    However, I absolutely cannot tolerate situations

    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...

    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...
