So out of the few debates I have, I can only say one ended well, and unfortunately that ended with only one vote.

So rather than post more challenges that seem to get accepted by people who like to forfeit, I would like to ask for this site's finest debating warriors here.

I will debate almost any subject, and I will debate devils advocate if I have to, though I would prefer if you choose something that is relatively fair for both sides.

Anybody may offer to challenge me, though I will choose to accept the challenge from the person who has the best record for debates, or who provides to best quality arguments.

I will not do non-serious debates.

If there are two good challengers, I may do up to two debates at a time, though it would probably be easier if I only did one at a time.

And lastly, I fully don't expect to win. I may not be the best debater, and I know there are a lot of you who have more experience than me. But I will promise to put up a good fight, and make the best arguments I can make. I won't make this easy on you. ;-)

I hope to learn how to be a better debater from this, and to claim bragging rights against having faced some of the tops debaters.

Nah there are tons of people here who would demolish me

Okay. What topics interest you my friend?

Just looking at the big issues I could be down for a race based affirmative action debate or a minimum wage debate. We could also do some kind of historical or philosophical argument

I'd debate you. I can do anything you wish, although I would like to not debate social issues (except for the death penalty and gun rights) and pure philosophical topics (I'm open to certain religious topics though).
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

He'll rant on about how great Hitler is. Anyways, someone with that kind of grammar cannot debate well at all.

;D

But really, all other people volunteering here are way better competitors.

I'll debate you after lannan13 and thett3 is that okay? lannan asked first, but you guys both seem to be of equal debate strength.

That's fine. I won't have any time for a formal debate until around July 10th anyway.

Ok, with a caveat: this is my first post ever.
Here's the proposition. I know debate (understatement). Don't know this site. If you're willing to be patient with my newbeeness, I'll make you pay for it with my skilz.

I'll debate anything (pie v. cake to religion or politics).
