Me and Bluesteel want a team debate

I don't even care about the topic anymore as long as someone is willing to take something.

Post some ideas and if you have a partner we will try and review some ideas and come up with one. We have been wanting to do this for ages.

Topics I suggest:

- There should be more team debates on DDO.
- Team debates are better than individual debates
- Team debates are a front for the DDO Elite
- Team debates should only be accessible by DDO gold members
- It would be beneficial to have a DDO gold membership

For serious, though:

- There is an external cause to the universe
- War is never justified
- Capitalism is the most just economic system
- Philosophy has little relevance in the modern world
- There should be more money devoted to scientific research

I'm sure there are a number of people interested in team debates, especially with any of the topics I have mentioned.
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.

I am down for anything and linked aaron to this thread as well. If you know any takers let me know. Minus God. I have boned that topic so hard, there is semen in heaven.

You don't have to argue that first resolution in the context of a god - you would just be arguing that the universe was/was not created by something external to the universe itself.

I am aware but most people that would team debate that would put it in the context of God. Granted if we got a physics debate that would be fun

i never even get to physics when I do a God debate. I just always point out there could be an infinite number of causes and that there is no evidence that God is the only cause

that usually ends the debate

Well considering that physics is stronger for me than philosophy, I tend to cover it a little bit more when debating God. But I guess, in general, there is just as much evidence for an acausal universe than a causal universe, so it makes sense.

I just have never seen anyone other than sargon post actual physics in a debate. Granted he taught me alot when i first joined and taught me how to format my arguments.

Quantum fluctuations is actually a very common angle to argue for an acausal universe, but I probably take it a lot further than anybody else would.

I am aware but most people that would team debate that would put it in the context of God. Granted if we got a physics debate that would be fun

Whenever I try physics debates, no one ever accepts them. :(


i never even get to physics when I do a God debate. I just always point out there could be an infinite number of causes and that there is no evidence that God is the only cause

that usually ends the debate

Well considering that physics is stronger for me than philosophy, I tend to cover it a little bit more when debating God. But I guess, in general, there is just as much evidence for an acausal universe than a causal universe, so it makes sense.

I just have never seen anyone other than sargon post actual physics in a debate. Granted he taught me alot when i first joined and taught me how to format my arguments.

Y U forgot me?

I do like you premises for a non external cause


never seen it with an angle like that before

Quantum fluctuations is actually a very common angle to argue for an acausal universe, but I probably take it a lot further than anybody else would.

I just read over that one debate and voted, it was pretty brutal what you did lol

You don't have to argue that first resolution in the context of a god - you would just be arguing that the universe was/was not created by something external to the universe itself.

You played the same card i do alot. A smart play and good debaters often do it. You held back the key factors in the argument until the last round which was in conduct and just ate her arguments alive

That is what you call a fatality.

Thank you for mentioning that I didn't make new arguments in the final round, like a few people, including kbub are claiming.

fundamental difference in between holding rebuttals and bringing new material. Everything you presented was a part of the initial contentions and played a part in the refutations. It was a good tactic.
