I am looking for something to debate about with somebody. It can't be scientific though because I am too busy to do a bunch of research.

So make a list of things you want to debate me about, and what side I will be taking.

Resolution: Estate Tax

I happen to believe in the Estate tax. Is this about the estate tax's existence or about how high it should be?

Could you provide a definition of physicalism?

I might have one. What's your stance on Dick Grayson taking over for Bruce Wayne following his "death" at the hands of Darkseid rather than the recently resurrected Jason Todd?

I won't know. I am not into Comic stuff although I have a brother who had read pretty much every batman cartoon in existence.

I am not sure I believe what is being argued.

First, isn't mathematics and logic by their very nature non-physical?
Second, I don't see a solid definition of "physical."
Third, will I be arguing that there is nothing non-physical, or that there is no evidence of anything non-physical?
Lastly, will you be arguing that there is more to the world than what is physical?
