Sure, why not.

It occured to me the other day that, unlike nearly every forum I've been on, we don't have any new members indroduce themselves. I began to wonder if we simply come off as a cold and non-welcoming site, and was thinking what could be done to change that.

Holy fuuck, 2 months, 110 debates. You either have no life, or have short lived debates o.0 Potentially both o.0

15 days, and school is over, I'll debate more in about 2 weeks.

A little of both. Some of my debates aren't very serious, plus I had a string of forfeits when I first joined. It is weird though that I still have time to do anything.

Hello DDO,

Even though a lot of people know who I am now...I am new to this site. I will tell you some things about me. I grew up around Chicago for most of my life except for about 4 years, from ages 10-14. I first got introduced to the idea of God in Catholic school kindergarten. I stopped going to Catholic school 2nd grade and went to public school for the rest of my school years. I was always high honors during school and the educational board wanted to put my into a program called "operation upgrade" twice. Once to skip from 3rd grade to 5th grade and once to skip from 5th grade to 7th grade. My mother did not put me in this program however do to her fear that it would reflect badly on my social development. I went into high school one year after my family moved back from Florida. We lived in a not so great area and I got into a lot of big fights with local gang members during school. After high school I started working full time as a tradesman or construction worker. I became skilled in masonry, carpentry, plumbing, interior remodeling, exterior remodeling, landscaping, etc. I was a tradesman all my life until about 3 months ago when I became a Resident Manager of a 67 unit condominium complex.

I always believed in fairytale love from an early age. I felt in my heart that that idea of one true love exists and that one day I would find my soulmate. I had some short term relationships in and out during my life timeline, until I met my wife 2 years ago. We met on an online dating site called "Plenty of fish", she is a hair stylist. We immediately hit it off and talked for over 7 hours straight that first night without a pause or an awkward moment during the conversations. I had finally felt that special feeling I had been waiting for, I met my soulmate. Me and my wife got married December 4th, 2010.

Knowledge. I have been reading books since I was about 4 years old. I have had an insatiable thirst for knowledge for as long as I can remember. I have read almost every major religious book in the search for how I feel towards God. I have a deep thirst for ancient civilizations and ancient cultures. I have a large number of books on the mind, psychic powers, and spirituality. I have done this because I feel that no matter what religion I end up following (if I even choose one at all), the knowledge and wisdom I learned from these books would bring more quality out of my spirit. I also took it upon myself to become even more knowledgeable in the fields of American History, Ancient History, Geography, Geology, Architecture, Mathematics, general science, physics, Quantum physics, philosophy, and any other subject I might like. Now, I have not retained all of this information and have had to refresh my memory from time to time. (I think all my years of smokin weed as a teenager fried my brain a little bit... LOL).

So this is some of my life compressed into a few paragraphs.

Here is a couple pictures.

Hello DDO.

What brought you here to DDO?

I stumbled on to it accidentally while searching for justifications for state power. Ironically it is DDO that made me an anarchist.

What kind of topics do you enjoy?

Philosophy, religion, politics...

Have you ever done debate before?

I've never debated outside of this site.

What are your interests?

Reading, making fun of people with different beliefs.

I stumbled onto here after a member linked to one of their debates on another forum. I joined because I thought someone else was going to join/debate and I wanted to vote on their debate. They didn't join.

What kind of topics do you enjoy?

Religion, philosophy, science.

Have you ever done debate before?

Not really.

What are your interests?

They are activities that I find enjoyable and waste time on.

Even though other people followed some sort of guideline to posting stuff about them on this site, I will be different, and make my own questions, which I will not put in bold, and I will not draw attention to them.

I am an over cynical human being, criticizing even myself in the way I do things from day to day. Like yesterday, I listened to myself talk to a friend, and realized I was manipulating him into doing what I was telling him to do. I hate people that manipulate others, and I do it myself.

I hate myself.

(Pause for Awkward Silence and inevitable comments on last statement.)

Oh, and a warning to people reading my future debates and posts,

If you have a problem with what I say, what I believe in, or anything of the sort,
Please, make your ideas known.
Who am I, a fellow human being, to stop you from saying your thoughts?
I can add your criticisms to the list of my own.

Who likes my name?
And who gets it?

Alright, so considering the fact that I have no idea what to say for my introduction, I'll start of with: hi.

On the hunt for legitimate sources for my debate tomorrow morning, I happened to stumble upon this website. I tend to enjoy topics dealing with political ideas, religion, history, and perhaps social issues. The more controversial the topic the more interesting for me!

As far as debating is concerned, I've had... some encounters with it. Generally speaking, although I may not be as experienced as some of the members on this site, I'll try to improve my skills as I go.

Anyways, this concludes my introduction. I believe it provides... sufficient information about me. Au revoir for now! (:

Religion and history tend to be favourites of mine as well. I see you're also Canadian(I'm B.C though).

Hi member of DDO
I think some of you guys already know me, but I guess I am new...
I can to this website to debate with my friend BillNyeTheUSSpy.
I am just an average teenager with a lot of things in my mind.
I love to debate ever since elementary.
I know I am not a really good debater, but you got to start somewhere.
My religion is Christianity, yet I don't believe I am a fully devoted Christian.
I hope I will be around for a long time, but you never know...
I love to play League of Legends!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will play with any DDO members. :P

Sometimes, randomness has everything to do with nothing.
