So I was looking for someone to debate the principle of sufficient reason with. I'm really not sure if I'll even have time for this debate right now, but I figured I'd throw the idea out there.

I'd be Pro.

Just looking to see who would be interested to debate this.
"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."

Hey Zmike. How are you bro? I wish I could but I'm busy with work and the fanfiction. Anyway, I'll make sure I read it.

Since the principle of sufficient reason seems to me to be an a priori concept, I can't imagine how one might defend it with arguments. So I might be willing to debate you on it as long as you assume the burden of proof. In other words, I wouldn't be required to prove that it's false, only to try to refute your arguments, showing that your arguments do not prove the PSR.

I very much want to, but I'm in the same boat time wise.

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 think I could give a pretty solid and complete negative case for this as I have read around it... If that helps me queue jump....
