if I challenge you to something, do you promise to commit to finishing every single round of the debate?

and if you do promise that, would you....

a) tell me specific thoughts on gun rights
b) tell me if you are familiar with Batman comic mythos
c) tell me the cases that particularly stand out to you for reasons to not believe in God the most out of all your reasons
d) are you familiar with history enough and somewhat creative enough to have fun with 'alternative history' debate similar to this one http://www.debate.org...
e) are you up for 'playing devil's advocate' on your own beliefs enough to argue a religious debate from a somewhat pro-religious perspective?
f) tell me your beliefs about Bigfoot
g) tell me your thoughts on the validate of eyewitness testimony
h) tell me what you think about a school voucher program
i) if your pro or con a moment of silence in schools
j) pro or con a school opting to have a pitcher of the 10 commandments hanging on the way anywhere in the school, or a public court for that matter?

&
k)......or just tell me anything in general your actually interested in debating. the previous list is just the first few things that have come off the top of my head as being related to resolutions I would be interested in debating someday.

This one would make a good debate. Personally I would be interested in debating it taking the pro side. (for schools)

I'm interested in all debate topics: political/religious/philosophical. Maybe have a look at where we disagree on the chart?

Social, I would love to debate you on this.
How about this.
Resolved: Public schools should be aloud to put the ten commandments on the walls of the school building.

Does that sound good? I trust we would both stay clear of semantics. And we'd have to set a definition for the ten commandments. In my opinion the NASB (new American standard Bible) is the best translation. Although it wouldn't have to be NASB that the schools use. Just for the definition of the ten commandments in the debate.

Great :)
If you don't mind I'll wait a bit before sending it to avoid getting swamped (real life and DDO).

I'm going to challenge you and if you accept you better not forfeit on me.

Were you serious about the Batman debate, I taught an entire course once with every example centered on or related to The Batman.

never mind, I changed my mind, I just got to thinking weird the arguments could be from a non-church person to the debate challenge I was thinking of. I think I'd rather do another alternative history debate.

the only thing on your position chart that interested me was the gun control thing but dont really know what degree of gun control you would think makes you pro gun control.
