Honestly, is it just me missing logical debate on reasonable subjects. Just scrolling through some debates make me cringe. Can people just not get that gay marriage, abortion, god vs atheism and creation vs evolution have been debated enough. What happened to actual debates. I'm not saying non of the debates are good, but i just want to know if anyone else wishes people would actually debate things worth debating.

=====================

I get your point, but the reality is that their are few subjects that really excite people. In the UK, its immigration, political correctness, Euthanasia, religion and the hatred of the European Union.

I would also point out that few people have the ability to debate without personalizing things. I am a person of great logic, and therefore struggle to understand the emotive argument.

Generally the debates that have been recycled over and over again are the debate between the new users (or the purple circles). They cannot possibly know that these debates have been used constantly becaus they have only been on the site for a matter of hours. I understand that it is annoying, yet empathy is necessary.

What happened to logical reasoned debate. That disappeared with the advent of Political correctness,the race card and race baiting, extreme environmentalism and junk science.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Name me one issue other than abortion that truly is a matter of life and death for innocent human beings and I'll readily accept that as a debate worthy subject on par with abortion.

Are innocent humans being as systematically denied their rights and executed by the death penalty as they are with abortions?

Sorry, but I don't see near as many people demanding the right to keep slaves as I do those who demand the right to kill children with abortion. Maybe if those numbers were reversed slavery would be a more worthy debate topic than it is now. (for me)

What happened you ask. The answer is LIFE HAPPENED!
To all the people fighting a hard battle out there - life's giving you a pretty hard beating. There's no sugarcoating that, but there's no shadow that's free of light. When life sneers at you and asks, "Ready to go again?" - Raise your hand. Reach out to victory. Don't give in.

Those topics may not seem reasonable or relevant to you but, those are the most controversial topics as of right now. Society wants to debate on topics that provoke people the most and as illogical as it may seem, it's not going anywhere soon. We'll all just have to adapt and cope with it until one or the other side appearsmore credential or less hostile.
If I went back in time and murdered my grandmother, therefor preventing my existence, then who killed my grandmother?
