Rules:
1. Use clear, size 14, Times New Roman text like this
2. Don't use faith as an argument.
3. The resolution of this debate is that Karaite Judaism is more logical, and more morally sound than Catholicism, to which I am pro.
In round 1 we will both define our sects so we can begin:

Karaite Judaism is the sect of Judaism founded upon recognition of the Hebrew Bible as the word of G-d, hence, Karaites deny latter additions such as the Jewish Talmuds or the Christian New Testament.

I can revise the terms then, how about we focus on morality and reason and leave out the other stuff.

But that's not what we'd be debating. The NT is irrelevant to the resolution.

But, if the NT is true, it should be completely in line with the OT, and there for any Christian sect would be more in line with the OT. This is what you believe correct?

Well of course a Jewish sect is going to be more in line with the Old Testament than any non-Jewish denomination. The question is whether or not the New Testament is also the Word of God. Since the resolution is based on a foregone conclusion, I respectfully decline the debate challenge, Harry.
