This should be an interesting and possibly humorous debate. Good luck to the Con. First round is acceptance, second is argument, third is rebuttal...

The first round will simply be for acceptance, although I do have a few requirements before the debate starts. -Lincoln-Douglas format: Value/Criterion, All contentions must be tied back to value. -Definitions -Good grammar (please.) -Statistics I will allow my opponent to use the bible as a source. This is a topic I feel strongly about, so unless you are serious about this debate, do not accept. I wish my opponent the best of luck....
