ZakYoungTheLibertarian

Resolved: Theism is epistemicly superior to Atheism. Request: If you would be so kind as to post only your case, we can use the second round for direct refutation and proceed to full debate in the final 2 rounds. If you'd rather debate another way, that's fine too. Rule: Evidence found via research must be sourced, so that the context of that evidence may be examined. If a piece of evidence is not sourced by the voting period, it shall be assumed that the evidence was false Note: I will...

Resolved: Grand Canyon National Park should be auctioned off to the highest bidder. My opponent has requested that, in the spirit of traditional forensics, he ought to argue first and last. Further, neither of us may present new arguments in the 5th round, it being a crystallization round. If the debate is still rather heated at that point, we may mutually decide to extend new arguments into the 5th round. My opponent has also accepted the burden of proof. I give the floor, and the definit...
