Thaddeus was going to represent DDO against a group of South Koreans in a debate this Saturday. You would be ebating 6 secondary school students. Between 14-17 years old. Most are about 15.

The resolution is "This house believes schooling should be mandatory."

Time between rounds would 10 minutes and would consist of 3 rounds, roughly 5 - 10 minutes each. Opening arguments on both sides, 2nd prop and opp, final rebuttals.

The problem is their time difference, and that means we would need someone to be up very early if you are in the states. It would start 5AM eastern time. If you are in Western Europe it would be easier 10AM.

I would love to do this, but I will not be online saturadays (as I am almost never on weekends). But I will greatly look forward to reading this. People should jump all over this!

I'm in--I think.
1) Whatever has contradictory attributes does not exist.
2) The Biblical God has contradictory attributes.
3) Therefore, the Biblical God does not exist

Never mind, too early.

2) The Biblical God has contradictory attributes.

Is it safe to assume they are refering to schooling on the High school level, and not the college or kindergarden level? Since many people will likely hold different views pending the level of education. (really, I'm just bumping the thread for people)

I appreciate that OreEle, I'd hate to have to not participate.

Not that I'm a skilled debater, but maybe I could do it (depending on the time in Australia) . Is it desperate that you get a final person?

Well, it would be nice to have something like this get off the ground. I've been thinking of different sort of tournaments and trying to get outside of just the usuals that we have here. A sort of team challenge i think would be really cool.

The time will be 10GMT, so i don't know what time that is in Australia.

I think that makes it 10pm EST at the start, which is a bit late unfortunately for me (arguing close to midnight...) . So, I'll have to say I can't do it. Hopefully you can do this with 1 less member.

Actually no, it means 5AM eastern time, that's the problem. If no one takes it we'll be passing.

So 5 AM eastern, or 2 AM western... Not exactly the most ideal time frame.

Yeah, pretty sucky actually. They may have a future opportunity for us, and Rob is sort of exploring that with Syme.

It might be okay without the 10 minute time frame (though they are likely testing their ability to think on their feet as if it was a spoken debate where they would need to know everything right then and there, and not be able to turn to google).
