Just a topic I am interested in, And I will argue for either side.

1. First round: acceptance

- Either argue

PRO: Free will is possible

or

PRO: Fatalism is inevitable

- I am just interested in having a dialogue, So I don't mind which side I am on.


2. Second round: Opening statement

3. Third Round: Rebuttal (Try to avoid adding new material. Your argument should be in your opening statement)

4. Fourth Round: Counter rebuttal + closing statement (Rebut opponent's rebuttal, And explain why you believe you have provided a more compelling case. Please do not add new arguments so that the debate is coherent)

Adress any concerns in comments before accepting.

I'm not going to add an argument here as that would be unfair.

Ok, Let's just use Christianity as an example, Because that's easiest. According to them, God gave you free will so you can choose the right path. He designed you to be able to have a choice and it's up to you what decisions you make.

-slow clap-

The End! Guys, 'yall gots to vote for me on this.

Free will.
1. A muslim can eat a pig.
2. A non muslim can eat a pig.
Fatalism.
what will happen will happen.
The muslim and the non muslim will have the same "toilet-scenario".
