    I am one in a select few,

    who will admit to being extremely under educated and yet, I still like to debate and discuss just about any topic. As long as all parties can retain themselves from going ape-**** if someone doesn't understand something fully or whatever, its all fun and games.

    Anyone care to join me

    for one? No subject is off limits as long as I have some sort of understanding on the matter. I'm not here to win but to learn. For me this is the only way to debate.

    Chicken Or The Egg?

    Hello Fellow Debaters!

    I love to debate. I am part of our school's debate circle. I feel that I'm myself when I debate with others. And most importantly it helps and trains my self confidence. Yet there are new members. And they are most likely to be very judgmental. So can anyone give me some...

    I find it humorous when adults try to 'bite

    their tongue around youth' specifically teens. I promise anything you dare to say around we've already heard and have probably said it ourselves. Not that we're all necessarily bad, just this is our generation and by the second grade you'll know the meaning of all those cuss...

    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...

    I've grown fond of discussing all types of

    topics. Great debates are not filled with anger or defensiveness. It combines listening with an open mind as you discuss you ideas. It's not judgement or rejection for disagreeing. Even if you leave still unconvinced, the conversation was enjoyable because you were challenged...

    Debates are awesome. They open or,

    sadly sometimes, close minds. Spread new ideas. And make you think critically. I want to try to start one. I'm an atheist and think that all religion is a useless in every way.

    I have strong opinions on things,

    but I tend not to debate them unless I know enough about them. So instead, if I have a differing opinion, I'll present it in the form of questions to probe for more information. This way it is not combative, and allows people to be more open to an idea that conflicts with their...

    I find enjoyment out of debating, and even won all my debates during classes back in high school. My family are no where near debaters though.. I don't know where I get it from. Probably from my dads side.

    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?
