I remember reading: http://www.debate.org...

Just read: http://www.debate.org...

Got flashback and copy-pasted on Google, then I found: http://carm.org...

I don't want to make any accusations, but am I missing something? Or is it what I think it is?

I must be missing something, what is your issue? They all deal with Islam.

It's pretty lazy to quote things you disagree with, call it stupid and move on, rather than arguing with the person. -000ike

Read contention 1 in the first link. Read contention 2 in the second. Then compare them to the third link.

I've read just a little and know what you mean. Which is plagiarism

since I cited it, it isnt really plagiarism. Therenaren't any rules in my debate about plagiarism, just citing all sources—which is what I did.
We're both atheists. I just believe in one less god than you.

This is true, as does the firs debate that mentioned it.

While we are on the topic of debates about Islam, does anyone have any suggestions about what I should do about this one? My opponent is very vague.

Well, I guess you could use some of my arguments to prove Islam is not the best relugion. Show him how Islam supports terrorism and degrades women.

Yea, I figured I would define the terms since he left it open.

That just sounds lazy to me.

I thought you said you wanted to be a better debater. If so you should try writing your own arguments like most people.

Don't make an argument for the second round, just set the terms, structure, definitions etc....and ask him to make it clear what religion he's arguing for. If he's arguing for Islam no problem. If he's arguing against it play devils advocate.

Point out plagiarism Search answers on the net. Post the links! Done.

Since it is a 5 round debate, you can ask him to post his own arguments in next round.

See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.

Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.

Plagiarism is a serious offense, and a major debating faux pas. I personally think it is a ban-able offense, so point it out to the powers that be.
