This Debate is mearly just to see what all of your genre favorites are. I am very new to this debate.org and would love to learn more about all of you. All my challenger has to do is type what their favorite genre is for a book. Mine is Romance. For the people voting, all they have to do is vote as a tie and type what theirs is. I am simply just curios as to what your favorites are. I thank my challenger for accepting this debate.

I choose history.

For many I know this is boring, but this has its benefits. It helps you understand your past, and know how to prevent the bad parts of it. So it helps you avoid it, a.k.a. learn from you mistakes.

Knowing history helps you understand civilization. Without some basic knowledge of civilization you know nothing about modern day society. Modern society originated from the beginning, what we call society today is an upgraded form of the 1940s, obviously heavily evolved. It also helps us understand modern prejudices and other thoughts.

Although history doesn't let us predict the future, but it increases our awareness. Lets say Joe knew a lot of history, he saw something happening on TV. People where maybe doing things that cause violence towards themselves, he would know know to do that because these people are doing it and being hurt, and his history book already has stuff like that in it.

So it increases intelligence overall.

History is the best teacher.

"Study history, study history. In history lies all the secrets of statecraft."
Winston Churchill

"We are not makers of history. We are made by history."
Martin Luther King, Jr.

As I said before, I'm not saying reading history is fun (unless your me) but it is better then romance because when you learn history you learn other things to as stated above. So history = knowledge, history= learning.

Then choose a troll topic (anything by charlesb or jimtimmy would work) and start asking people what their favorite genre is. Volia! Two birds killed with one stone.

kyro90, if you really wanted to just know what people's favorite genres are, then you shouldn't make a debate about it. Instead, you should make a forum topic about it. After all, that's what the forums are used for.

Reasons for voting decision: I guess a bit of romance and history in every book with its main genre makes it interesting. My favorite genre is fiction in general I guess

Reasons for voting decision: I am a bit of a history enthusiast so all of Cons arguments made sense. Since this was a 1 round debate and the pro didnt really defend why he thought romance was the best site. Welcome to the site though Kyro90, i must warn you though this site is dangerously addicting ;D
