Throw any interesting history topic to this thread, then in brackets put your position on the issue, gonna make a debate challenge out of a few of them. .Except for American history, Cause I don't know that much :P.

I'll start with one:

"Religion was not the primary cause of the Taiping revolt" (Pro)
"Praise Allah."

"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."
