The first two posters who choose to do so can pick any resolution they want* and I must debate them on that resolution. Any legitimate topic is fine. I will take any side of an acceptable resolution.

*within reason - no non-serious topics or truisms

I'm assuming you don't want to debate it?

No, not yet. Would you take the Pro position in case?

Like I said, I'm willing to take any position, even if I disagree with it. It's not as if there aren't a good deal of arguments for Pro that I could potentially use.

Second poster.

Resolved: Mankind is probably the main cause of global warming in current times.

Me as Pro.

Let's do it. Send the challenge using standard rules (i.e. No trolling, forfeiting, etc - don't artificially limit arguments though).

Define non-serious.

Define non-serious.

"Airmax is a robot" is non-serious, while a topic like "X TV show is better than Y" is serious.

I'll extend this to two/three more people (depending on if Mirza decides to debate or not)
