I've never bothered to participate in Debate debates and decided to see what would happen if I challenged a rabbi or a Jew well versed in Judaism's tenets to a debate on the origin of the word "Torah". Well, who should show up to debate but one of the atheist regulars who promptly turned the debate into a debate on atheism vs theism, i.e. another atheist troll diverting religious discussions between religious people to go into atheist blather and nonsense of irresponsible know-nothings of spirituality who just parade their ignorance continually. Yesterday I checked and it was tied and today I think the atheist got some fellow atheists to post in support and is "winning" this debate without ever once addressing the topic of the debate. Stupid all around waste of time. The forums are where the real debates are going on.

I think you need to learn to debate first. This is the topical debate for those who are wondering.

You had an impossible resolution to defend.
The moment you declare a set of ideas to be immune from criticism, satire, derision, or contempt, freedom of thought becomes impossible. - Salman Rushdie

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. - Bertrand Russell

Not impossible. Just nonsensical. I guess that would make it almost impossible.
