Can we make this happen? I want to see a debate between the two of them. Something big like gun control, gay marriage, the existence of God or something of that sort.

I'm just giving Ben a hard time...I do think those topics suck, though. Gun control is okay, I suppose but gay marriage is within months of being a settled issue and I doubt either of them would argue against it, and arguments about the existence of God are the equivalent of intellectual masturbation

It's ok I enjoy being given hard times ;) I disagree about the topics though I think any of those would be good. Some relevant but polarizing issue on a topic they both excel in.

Is it possible for tournaments or duels (FYI, this sort of proposal shall henceforth be known as a duel) to be about topics that won't be forgotten in 5 minutes for once? He's a tip: if you can think of a topic immediately, it's boring.

The only good argument is the Mexico argument. Other than that there is literally no good scholarly evidence showing that they work, and there is actually evidence that they can do the opposite. I know blue likes them, I have never heard whiteflame said he did. Plus, blue wants to do what Australia did--I don't think whiteflame is at that level.

I think they agree that guns are generally detrimental to society as well

Debate types we need to bring back:

1. Story debates: each debater writes one chapter of a continuing story
2. Ultimate Team Wars: each debater selects 5 fictional characters and describes how their team would vanquish that of their opponent
3. Challenge debates: each debater presents increasingly difficult real-world challenges for their opponent to complete
4. Lyric debate: debaters argue a topic using only song lyrics
5. Riddle or lateral thinking debates
6. "My opponent" debates: Pro presents a scenario involving Con's inability to accomplish a task, and Con argues otherwise (e.g. My opponent could not feasibly win the next California mayoral election.)

I think they agree on all of those topics...
and they aren't very good topics either

Might we hear a suggestion of yours?

"Beshapiro sucks at choosing debate topics"

"I am the best debater on the site"

"US Congress should be abolished"

individualism is societally destructive

Pretty sure they, as well as most rational humans, would agree on that.

naturally. it's basically a truism

I think it's actually a very strong position, actually

You should debate it with Bossyburrito. He would probably do a better job than DanT did lol

I don't think I want to debate it again. It's a good, true position but it isn't one that is very conducive to the setting of a debate

Debate types we need to bring back:

1. Story debates: each debater writes one chapter of a continuing story
2. Ultimate Team Wars: each debater selects 5 fictional characters and describes how their team would vanquish that of their opponent
3. Challenge debates: each debater presents increasingly difficult real-world challenges for their opponent to complete
4. Lyric debate: debaters argue a topic using only song lyrics
5. Riddle or lateral thinking debates
6. "My opponent" debates: Pro presents a scenario involving Con's inability to accomplish a task, and Con argues otherwise (e.g. My opponent could not feasibly win the next California mayoral election.)

So basically, more Logical-Master type debates

He was god's gift to debates. LM, Kleptin, and Brian_Eggleston were like the last people on the site to come up with a new thought lol

.......they were among the first people on the site though...
