First off, I would like clarify what I mean by "win". Obviously, when Solarman takes up a debate, he knows he's generally not going to win the vote because of his far right wing points of view. However, he does seem to take some sort of satisfaction in finding opponents who don't know how to deal with his belligerence or who provide relatively weak arguments. I have debated Solarman in the past, and instead of responding to his personal attacks, I took his arguments at face value. I responded with facts from impartial, scholarly, and peer-reviewed sources that refuted his arguments. I correctly pointed out that his arguments were usually either supported by non-reputable sources such as anti-Islamic websites, such as prophetofdoom.net, or by faulty logic. Instead of responding to my arguments, he has ignored them, dismissing me as a Stalinist. I am arguing that Solarman has accepted the fact that he cannot prove me wrong using reason or rational arguments, and has therefore decided to ignore my challenges to debate.

I don't hate Solarman at all. I don't even know him. I do know that I don't agree with him on most things though, but that isn't grounds for hating someone. I will admit that the fact that he's not popular with many makes me want to find things to like about him, as I think most people are jerks and wrong about most things, so...

I think anyone who voted for rwebberc in this debate did so in poor judgement. The fact that Solarman accepted this debate was grounds for his victory.

kenito001 has a very good point. I have to agree with him 100%. Now I have a question for Solarman1969, if you think this website is for mere children than why don't you leave it?

Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh simplify things for people like solarman... Those who can't handle intellectualism and THE FACTS.

Solarman, proving points requires the use of evidence and logic, both of which you seem to lack in every debate of yours that I have read. You've taken your debating style from the like of Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh and seem to prefer to make up stuff on the spot and insist that you saying it makes it true. Of course, were it not for style, Bill and Rush would not have the careers they do. I hope I catch this next debate of yours. If anything, watching you get firmly handled by superior debaters provides ample entertainment. The comments that follow concerning how poorly you performed also provide reassurance in humanities ability to discern good logic.

Am I boring, or did I call you out on the fact that you have no idea what a Buddhist is supposed to be but you claim to be one. I know facts are realy boring to you, that's why you spice every argument up with popaganda and lies.
