I'm sorry, but I have too much bias and therefore cannot respond accordingly.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

Idk about the smart money being on Blade.
Most/all his debates look like noobsnipes, so I'm not sure how well he would hold up against someone who at least knows what they're doing (Ragnar). Would be interesting to see though.

I will say there are a couple debates I would have voted against me on. There have also been a couple times I literally posted a round with only seconds to spare. My record is undefeated, half by luck...

I scanning over your Big Issues now, and will be sending you a PM shortly so we can discuss potential debate topics in private. The two I see immediately are Iraq/Iran war and then Racial Profiling, both of which we disagree on.

For the record, I wanted to debate Teemo first since he is also undefeated but he wouldn't, so I said you were my next target. Sorry about Mikal making it public like this :) Anyways, PM will be coming shortly!!

I'd judge those. They're not boring... unlike abortion.

It's not about having a "unique" argument, so much as having an argument that's not going to bore me. I have a pretty solid attention span, but there are certain subjects (like video games, abortion, God's existence, contraception, etc.) that I resent reading.

Resolved: Natural selection cannot explain the presence of consciousness in humans
"Delete your fvcking sig" -1hard

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."

Depends how you define consciousness...

Not saying this is how it happened, but it's easy to come up with a workable explanation:
Big heads were randomly more attractive, the heads slowly grew bigger and bigger, with a larger brain inside. The big heads started killing the women, so the woman that survived had a mutation that allowed her to rebel against popularity, and get pregnant from one with a smaller head. Consciousness thus developed from survival instincts.

Oh god, I really just wrote that...

both these debaters have never lost a single debate before, however, Ragnar admits it's mostly because he never forfeits. But, it must be noted that Ragnar has far more experience than sir Blade. I'm putting my money on him. (ragnar, that is)
