What are some of the "best" debates on DDO?

Please, don't fill this forum with My Little Pony, rap battles, vi_spex, etc. I want to see serious, good topics with good arguments/rebuttals.

For example: http://www.debate.org... -- A good, controversial topic, with good arguments and rebuttals.

What ya got?
"The right to 360 noscope noobs shall not be infringed!!!" -- tajshar2k
"So, to start off, I've never committed suicide." -- Vaarka
"I eat glue." -- brontoraptor
"I mean, at this rate, I'd argue for a ham sandwich presidency." -- ResponsiblyIrresponsible
"Overthrow Assad, heil jihad." -- 16kadams when trolling in hangout
"Hillary Clinton is not my favorite person ... and her campaign is as inspiring as a bowl of cottage cheese." -- YYW

Optimal example, am I right? Love that debate. :P
But thanks! I enjoy some good readings. :)

The main reason that I added this one is because it links in to DDO. I admit that it's not as good as the others in terms of technical debate but it does show another side and category to debate that hasn't been shown through the other 3 debates.

I was going to say my debate with Whiteflame. That was excellent. Whiteflame's debate with Thett, and Thett's debate with Roy are good. I also liked the debate I did with Bladerunner [http://www.debate.org...]; for a debate with 3 hour response times, it was great.

The best debate on this site is Bsh1's debate with thett3 on who would make a better husband for me.

That is the best debate that has ever been done, and it will continue to be the best I've ever seen.

The second best is bsh1's debate with Whiteflame on militia groups; even though there were grievously incompetent RFD's cast on it.

Not the best debate, but it is probably the best debate on global warming (http://www.debate.org...). I mean, unless something big comes out soon (which is possible, because if the pause lasts another 10 years, then GG) this debate pretty much settles the question.

Immigration debates? See me get rekt here because BS theory and (insert salty comments because I still think I won the econ part, but whatever, I can understand why people read it differently): http://www.debate.org... or rek here: http://www.debate.org...

Gay parenting? http://www.debate.org...

I think this debate is probably one of the best on this site: http://www.debate.org... (J Kenyon v Danielle)

And, as someone else previously mentioned: http://www.debate.org... (I just reread it. I think Contradiction won even though I no longer agree with him -- I used to when I voted, but not really anymore)

A religious debate I actually read (shocker): http://www.debate.org...

So there is a pause? Funny enough, I just thought that was an anti-GW myth.

It is not statistically significant. Yet. It isn't so much a pause but a slowdown which is being dictated by the PDO. It is actually surprising that we have warmed at all since the early 2000s, giving some evidence for AGW. The PDO, as an oscillation, cant drive long-term temperature trends. It goes up and down and ends up evening out. So when this PDO phase ends, we will conclusively know.

I really wont begin doubting AGW until the next IPCC report. If the pause is still happening by then, something is up that they haven't captured. Some models did show a pause, but most of them having it end sometime in the next few years.

Lol.

I've read through that debate, and you had some really good arguments. If I would have voted, it could have gone either way. As you mentioned, people can read and understand the content differently.

or rek here: http://www.debate.org...

Poor Varrack. :P I enjoy reading your immigration debates, though.

Gay parenting? http://www.debate.org...

Really like this debate.

I'll have to read this one.

I enjoy these debates. I'm a "fanboy," but on the same side you are.

Not really. Both sides did fairly well, though the overwhelming superiority was on the Con side.
