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."

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.

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." ~Aristotle

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

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....
