I was just wondering if anyone wanted to do a Skype debate. You can suggest a topic, or we can go with a fairly broad topic like does god exist or is there any evidence for a specific god.

I might be interested in this.

Are you pro-religion or anti-religion? And would you record the debate?

I'm mostly anti religion, in that I believe organised religion is a tool that has been used for horrendous atrocities. I believe that organised religion has to much capability for evil, but I'm not sure i would be able to defend the contention of banning it. On recording it, if I have the capability to do it then I had planned to. But my laptop broke recently, so I might need to use skype on my phone, and would be unable to. If you didn't want me to, I of course would respect that request.

Do you have ideas for a debate topic?

muze, I am helping running a skype-show that goes on youtube (TheLyingGhost Show) which you'd probably be able to discuss this on. We're trying to get on a British-time one to make it easier for more discussion to go on. Would you want to take part? We could do "The Value of Religion" as a topic quite reasonably.

Yeah, sure. Sounds like fun.
