The new DDO Voting System is superior to the old

thett3
Zarroette

Resolved: The new DDO voting system is superior to the old one. I am affirming.The new DDO voting system is a system of up/down voting where the judge selects a single winner for the debate. The old system was a categorical system weighing Spelling and Grammar, Conduct, and Sources as well as arguments. As a courtesy to my opponent, we'll use that system for the round. Round 1 is for acceptance only. No new arguments in the last round. Good luck.

The Illuminati no longer exists, and the rumours about the Illuminati are false.

SirMaximus
Burningsnow

Conspiracy theorists often assert that the Illuminati is evil, anti-Christian, trying to hide their symbol(s) in pop culture today, controls everyone in pop culture and media, or any combination of the above. As the Instigator, I am going to attempt to debunk these ideas. I believe the proposition that the rumours about the Illuminati are false, and the Illuminati no longer even exists. The Illuminati was formed in 1776, by Adam Weishaupt. Historians refer to the Illuminati that existed at th...
