I really think he is a candidate for one of the best debaters on this site. He single-handedly destroyed rational_thinker in a quantum mechanics debate and holds another win over raisor.

I want to see a challenging debate between him and one of the other formidable users. Preferably..

Mikal, Zmikecuber, Bluesteel, or maikuru.

Can you imagine if Sargon had a beard? Scary thought!

We should ship him some Rogaine so he can start rubbing it on his face.

I've read every debate he has done, and thoroughly enjoyed them all.

I would practice caution before awarding that title though because many people here truly excel in only a few fields/subjects/topics (however you'd like to view it). While he is well-versed in several fields, I'm sure there are people here more knowledgeable than him in other topics open for debate.

With all that said though, his lexicon seems to be extremely advanced for his age, as well as his level of knowledge and he is in my personal top 5 when it comes to most effective debaters on this site.

Lol, I'm pretty sure I'd lose against him :P

Each person has their subjects. Personally, I'm not going to debate physics because (1) I don't like it very much and (2) I don't see the point in debating scientific theories. I'd be happy to debate him later this summer over a politics topic or possibly morality. I know maikuru is probably only going to be willing to debate something entertainment-related.

He's a good user. I'm interested to see where he is going. But as Blade of Truth said, you need to keep in mind that everyone has certain topics they are good at and also, when you issue blanket challenges, that there are just some topics that certain debaters are not going to accept.

My top three overall would be Raisor, Roy, and Bluesteel of current users. I don't think there's anyone else currently in the field who comes even close to them in terms of overall strength and versatility.

Oh, no. Do you know the name of that account? I'd check it out if you did. I'm surprised so many members on here had previous accounts. I just found that out about ClassicRobert having an old one as well the other night when watching his interview with Mikal (Which was pretty good if you haven't seen it).

Wow, alright well that's definitely some more reading. From what I can tell by simply skimming, it looks like he has improved over time (which is to be expected of anyone really). He's the 2nd member I held in high regard that has had previous accounts. I won't make any rash conclusions until I've read his previous debates though. Interesting nonetheless, thanks for sharing!

Yes, he is very smart. Incredible debate record. He has a very high ELO considering he has only done like 20 debates.

While I won't really comment on him being one of the best debaters on the site, I will say that I really enjoy his debates. When I read them, it feels like a professor is giving me a lecture, and I always learn something new from them.

Not really.

He sucks, I bet even you could beat him.
