|Quotes:||A witty saying proves nothing. -- Voltaire|
"The Visionary Artists are reclaiming the most ancient and powerful motive for making art and reinstating the sacred function of art for humanity -- the depiction and transmission of theophanies, God's holy contact with the human imagination. It has nothing to do with "the marketplace" that obsesses most contemporary artists and the commercial gallery industry and museological plunderings that pile up the artifacts of crumbled empires and fragmented ancient civilizations. The museums are booty shacks of pirate nations who have desecrated holy sites the world over. Now it is time to build again the Temples of Art, re-sacralizing human destiny"

This is our first round debate for Freeman's DDO tournament. Thanks to Vi_Veri for agreeing to debate me! I shall be arguing in favor of the position that persons do not possess temporal parts - or, in slightly less technical terms, persons endure over time and do not perdure over time. ========= Definitions and Clarifcations ========= Person - very minimally defined, a subject of experience. The term "person" no undoubtedly means more than that but it also can't mean less than that....
========= Introduction ========= This debate will be on the age-old clash in philosophy of mind over the issue of whether or not there is an immaterial element to, but not limited to, persons. This immaterial element is attributed to the mind or the soul. Of course, the question is whether or not this immaterial element even exists and that is what we are here to debate. To put it another way - is there more to persons than their material bodies? I will be answering "yes" to that question s...
I read that Vi wanted to see more Poetry battles on here so I thought I'd give it a go. I've made this 5 rounds long. The first round will merely be introduction since I feel its necessary and then the following rounds will contain the poems with mini specific intro's if necessary. I'm 19 and have been writing poems since I was about 6. My main influence is Spike Milligan and, as a consequence I tend to write short (ish), "light", playful poems which are intended to be mildly amusing. For thi...
