I guess I'll start. I vote:
Caucasians are inherently more intelligent than African Americans

It was a hard fought battle, and generated a lot of activity (still is actually). JaxsonRaine and Physik came in a close second in my book.

I planned on simply voting for my initial nominee but this thread has done its job and informed/reminded me of some other very interesting debates. I will post my pick once I peruse the other choices.

The end of the world


The only reason I did not vote for caucasians are.... Is because it has been done twice now.

I agree, MK; that was one of the more creative and well-argued debates I have read on DDO.
