About Me:I'm a pretty open-minded person. I've been on a HS debate team and now I'm studying Music Education. I also work as an English Tutor at my college where I conduct lessons with all types of students including ESL. If you have any questions or would like to discuss a particular topic just let me know.
Activities:Hiking, Running, Weight Lifting
Beliefs:I'm pretty middle of the road when it comes to politics, I just try to use logic when deciding anything. The reason I love debate is the deduction process, looking for where con slipped up. When debating,I hold my position, and try to prove it to my best ability. Through this, an opponent may offer a point of view I hadn't been aware of or considered, and my 'belief' may change. I feel it is better to be once wrong- then right, rather be wrong, know it, and act ignorant. Then again, Ignorance is Bliss.
Quotes:"I am a citizen, not of Athens or Greece, but of the world."--Socrates

Debate.org should have a message system so members can communicate more efficiently.

Hello all, I'm bored here so I thought I'd think about ways to change our site. 1- By having a message system, like Myspace or Facebook - as in mail / comments - members will have access to better communication. 2- This will help spand out ideas. Friends can talk about a debate without it being posted on the debates comments, saving room and time. 3- The system will also be similar in the way that you can approve or deny a comment, so no slander will be shown. 4- It will make the s...

First off, I would like everyone to vote on the debate, not on my topic. Presumably, I have the favorable stance, greater education. TThough that does not mean Con will not bring a logical argument, thank you and thank you to my future opponent for taking this on. Secondly, let me define my topic. "The youth should be more involved in Politics, the Community, and World Order." The Youth = High school - 25, why? because once students enter high school they are not only becoming of age...

Music Theory/Music Skills classes should be mandatory course's for all students to take.

I'd like to start my first debate here by saying I'm intrigued by this site, this is just what we need. Something to refine our ideas, and be exposed to views we may have never considered before. Too the case. Music is all around us. Everyone has a favorite band or artist, and many people themselves are involved with music. Though, what is the benefit of music besides entertainment? Is it just that? Evidently not according to Dr. Lawrence Parsons of the University of Texas-San Antonio....

Time Travel, to the future, is possible.

Time Travel? Sure, we've heard of it. Its hard to say when 'man' first conceived of it, but back in 1733 a man by the name of Samuel Madden published a work called, "Memoirs of the Twentieth Century ". Which he claimed was a series of letters from English ambassadors in various countries to the British "Lord High Treasurer", along with a few replies from the British Foreign Office, all reportedly written in 1997 and 1998 and describing the conditions of that era. OK so if we haven't heard of...
