    Public Debating ... Maybe Not The Best Idea

    I can debate with anyone about most anything.   The topic important, however in many cases not as important as the act of debating.  I enjoy arguing a point, and have no problem arguing both sides of the same point.  I find it fun.  I enjoy being pushed, challenged, and of...

    Love It!

    Some of my favorite things to debate are firearms leglislation, and Afghanistan, but I will literally throw my two cents at anything! I think one of the most important things is not letting the debate dissolve into insults; some of the people I debate with could do best to...

    Devil's Advocate.

    I always seem to be the Devil's Advocate. It might be because I have a different point of view on the world and understand it more, or less. It could also be that I am right and they are all wrong, or vice verse. But until my opinion is proved completely wrong, I will continue...

    Religion In Debates

    I believe religion, personal belief in, shouldnt be brought into any debate, ever. To use your belief in a higher power in a debate is to say "My opinion is right, and I dont need any proof.". You cant say "God said this". It isnt something that can be seriously considered in a...

    Last week, we had a class debate,

    and I was so excited to share my opinion that I was shaking like a Chihuahua. I got disappointed whenever the teacher didn't call on me. I even love when I get into an argument on a YouTube or Vine video. And the fun part of that, is being totally calm and non-ignorant. It...

    Different Points of View Are Important

    I enjoy taking a bit of a contrarian point in discussions. It is good to have opposing points of view. Looking at a topic from a different way lets you learn more about it. Of course, sometimes it is fun to just mess with people. And I'm good at that too. At one point in high...

    I'll Debate The Titular Picture!

    I love to debate so much that when I saw the picture for this group, it made me want to debate it! True, one and two are both numbers. But they are numbers representing different things. One of course does not equal two. This is a type of logical fallacy. It's the same as...

    I Can't Debate Anymore.

    I used to debate all the time on BBSs (before the internet) and with friends, we were always able to keep the debate at debate level and it never affected any of the friendships I had. My best friend a long time ago was a die hard christian, (she is still my best friend but no...

    Le Groupe: Le Viol

    Recently, at a party this week a very vivid debate ensued when we all sat down after our watching a movie called 'Teeth'. Philippe, Antoine, Guillaume, Olivier, and Paul all suggested to us (girls) that 'secretly all girls wonder about rape, how it feels, some, even have a rap...
