- I want to start a series of No-Scoring Debates if any of you is interested.

- No-Scoring means there will be NO votes cast except in:
> Agreed with before the debate.
> & Agreed with after the debate.
=> Plus an RFD of who had better conduct, arguments & sources, WITHOUT voting on them.

- Thus, a No-Scoring Debate will be a Debate free from winning or losing. The point is to argue & discuss, not to win or lose.

.

- My interests are:

> Anything Islam related, ANYTHING: Qur'an, Hadith, Law, Theology, Sufism, History, Civilisation, Politics. . .
> Philosophy.
> Fundamental Physics.
> Mathematics.
> Fine Arts: Calligraphy, Painting & Drawing.
> Tech.
> Manga.

=> So any Topic in the above domains will be eligible as a Debate Topic. If you have a Topic in mind not pertaining to any of the above, don't hesitate to propose it anyways.

.

- Suggestions:

> Preservation of the Qur'an.
> Preservation of the Hadith.
> Errors in the Qur'an.
> Violence in the Qur'an.
> Historicity of Prophet Muhammad.
> Prophet Muhammad & Violence.
> Prophet Muhammad & Aisha.
> Prophethood of Muhammad.
> Women & Islam. (Hijab, Rights, Sexism, Testimony, Inheritance. . . )
> War & Islam.
> Terrorism & Islam.
> Violence & Islam.
> Homosexuality.
> Shari'a Law.
> Inheritance in Shari'a.
> Polygamy in Shari'a.
> Slavery in Shari'a.
> Dhimmis in Shari'a.
> Penalties in Shari'a. (Theft, Murder, Adultery, Apostasy. . . )
> Jihad.
> Islamic Theology.
> Theodicy in Islam.
> Free Will in Islam.
> Sufism.
> The Theory of the Soul in Islam.
> Jinn.

> Existence of God.
> Limits of Logic.
> Value of the Modes of Reasoning.
> Islamic Philosophy.

> Time vs. the Flow of Time.
> Causality in Physics vs. CPT Symmetry.
> Islamic Physics & Astronomy.

> Measures in Mathematics. (Integrals, Norms, Probabilities. . . )
> Hilbert Space.
> Infinity.
> Consistency in Mathematics.
> Islamic Mathematics.

> Drawing Contest.
> Calligraphy Contest.

Etc. . .

.

- People I am looking forward to debating with:

> Skepsikyma.
> ChristianPunk.
> wrichcirw.
> lannan13.
> FaustianJustice.
> Wylted.
> Zarroette.
> Vox_Veritas.
> zmikecuber.
> Ragnar.
> bsh1.

=> Or any others.

- Not really, I have none! I just don't want Voters & Moderators to get in the way of a good debate, as I completely lost faith in the Voting System.

If your goal is to argue and discussing something without there being a winner or a loser, then you are indeed thinking of the forums, since the forums are literally designed for people to argue and discuss things without there being a winner or a loser.....

- I should've added you on the list above, we are already arguing. :)

- Debates allow formal settings of Argumentation & Discussion, which is not the case for the Forums. & the Voters will still have the opportunity to express who they think won, without having to actually cast their Vote.

- Plus, I lost faith in the Voting System, & thus won't be doing any Scoring Debates in the future.

Wait.... You want the point to be about arguing & discussing things, not to win or lose, but still want people to cast their votes on who they believe won.....

You realize that kind of defeats the purpose right?

Even if this was the case, I'd rather take an unfair risk then none at all.

- I want to start a series of No-Scoring Debates if any of you is interested.

- No-Scoring means there will be NO votes cast except in:
> Agreed with before the debate.
> & Agreed with after the debate.
=> Plus an RFD of who had better conduct, arguments & sources, WITHOUT voting on them.

- Thus, a No-Scoring Debate will be a Debate free from winning or losing. The point is to argue & discuss, not to win or lose.

.

- My interests are:

> Anything Islam related, ANYTHING: Qur'an, Hadith, Law, Theology, Sufism, History, Civilisation, Politics. . .
> Philosophy.
> Fundamental Physics.
> Mathematics.
> Fine Arts: Calligraphy, Painting & Drawing.
> Tech.
> Manga.

=> So any Topic in the above domains will be eligible as a Debate Topic. If you have a Topic in mind not pertaining to any of the above, don't hesitate to propose it anyways.

.

- Suggestions:

> Preservation of the Qur'an.
> Preservation of the Hadith.
> Errors in the Qur'an.
> Violence in the Qur'an.
> Historicity of Prophet Muhammad.
> Prophet Muhammad & Violence.
> Prophet Muhammad & Aisha.
> Prophethood of Muhammad.
> Women & Islam. (Hijab, Rights, Sexism, Testimony, Inheritance. . . )
> War & Islam.
> Terrorism & Islam.
> Violence & Islam.
> Homosexuality.
As in is it acceptable or what specifically?
> Shari'a Law.
> Inheritance in Shari'a.
> Polygamy in Shari'a.
> Slavery in Shari'a.
> Dhimmis in Shari'a.
> Penalties in Shari'a. (Theft, Murder, Adultery, Apostasy. . . )
> Jihad.
> Islamic Theology.
> Theodicy in Islam.
> Free Will in Islam.
> Sufism.
> The Theory of the Soul in Islam.
> Jinn.

> Existence of God.
Pro
> Limits of Logic.
> Value of the Modes of Reasoning.
> Islamic Philosophy.

> Time vs. the Flow of Time.
> Causality in Physics vs. CPT Symmetry.
> Islamic Physics & Astronomy.

> Measures in Mathematics. (Integrals, Norms, Probabilities. . . )
> Hilbert Space.
> Infinity.
> Consistency in Mathematics.
> Islamic Mathematics.

> Drawing Contest.
> Calligraphy Contest.

Etc. . .

.

- People I am looking forward to debating with:

> Skepsikyma.
> ChristianPunk.
> wrichcirw.
> lannan13.
> FaustianJustice.
> Wylted.
> Zarroette.
> Vox_Veritas.
> zmikecuber.
> Ragnar.
> bsh1.

=> Or any others.
