This thread has been approved by Eszett and co.


Alright folks after working out some quirks we can finally get the one-on-one debate challenge thread back up. I am very fond of one-on-ones so I am happy to have this back up. However there is a catch. Were are going to things a little differently this time. We are not having a post count +1 thread all over agian. The last thread was removed for good reason, so pay attention. Failure to comply may result in eternal damnation.



This thread will be managed by myself and debate forum moderators.


1-on-1 Debate Challenge Thread format

You will post ONCE and ONLY ONCE and you will do it in the following format.


Example

Username:
Topic:
Brief summary of your stance(at least two or three sentences.)
_____________________

So

Babylon
Same sex marriage
I do not support a homosexual lyfestyle but I do not believe the law can restrict marriage from gay couples
_____________________


Once you post THATS IT and your name and your stance will be added to the front page.

Note: The only time you will be able to post more then once in this thread is if you have already finished your previous debate and your thread went past the front page and you think you are ready for another go, but you will have to wait because there are other people. We are not going to have 5 one-on-ones on the same page.

When your name is added to the list it will look like this:

Babylon-Same sex marriage-For

DO NOT work out your arrangments in this thread!

Please use the PM function for that or if your still having trouble you can PM me or one of the moderators and we will pair you with someone on the list.


Keep in mind that the people on the list are the people ready to debate, don't PM a user without checking first! If they aren't on the list they have already had their debate, or informed me that they are inactive.


When your topic is approved and you have worked out the details with your opponent a moderator will create a thread soley for you and your opponent to debate in. DO NOT make the thread yourself. Period.

No covert operations. This is the debate forum, not the CIA. Stray away from leaking info to the person you support. 1-on-1 debates means exactly that. 1-on-1. Secondly I'm sure whichever debaters in question can do without your assistance.

(Keep in mind that I will only summarize your stance. I will not work it out to the finest detail.)


ATTENTION: In a recent discussion with PsiUmbreon we've decided on trying to make this a little less toothless. I see a trend in 1-on-1 debates. There's no verdict. The topic lasts until one opponents simply leaves the thread. This is not okay, and can be considered poor debating courtesy. We couldn't work out a judging system so we are introducing deadlines. If you have not continued your debate for exactly 2 weeks it's an automatic concession and the victory goes to your opponent. I understand that circumstances arise where you can be too busy to post. It's happened. However you should work out your schedule before you make a commitment to a 1-on-1 debate. You can also give your opponent the courtesy of letting them know your busy and formally concede from the debate. For example if I have a 1-on-1 with The_Panda and it ends on his post, I have two weeks to respond. So I'll state it again. From now on, if you are engaged in a 1-on-1 debate and you have not posted for two weeks you will automatically concede. 2 weeks is pretty generous and plenty of time.






And to make things oh so clear....

Post once and only once!

Violaters will be automaticly stripped naked , boxed up, and shipped to Siberia.

Carbon Dating/Evolution
I am in support of evolution and carbon dating but do not believe that it contradicts with the Old Testament in any meaningful way, shape, or form.

EDIT: I don't exactly like the title you put up for me. You put up Theistic Evolution.

However, I intended it to be completely different from the intent of those two words, which I believe is akin to Evolutionism and Scientology. If you need a better description of my view on carbon dating and evolution, why not put [Genesis exclusivity from Science - For] instead?

While I like visionaries, Obama seemingly lacks substance, hiding behind a veneer of slogans, and at the same time what substance is in his policies I find would be destructive. To add to this, he has a clear lack of experience.

Gay adoption
I fully support gay marriage, but am againt gay couples having children, whether it be through adoption, artificial insemination. In the case of a couple getting divorced after having a kid, and then the woman or man becomes a homosexual, the heterosexual parent should continue raising the child, and only allow visists to the homosexual parent, not to be raised by them.

summary: The idea that we should pass more legislation to control guns is absurd, as these laws directly violate the 2nd amendment. Laws only work on law-abiding citizens, the people we pass this legislation for, criminals, already disobey laws . Passing gun-control laws only disarms citizens who have done nothing wrong.

topic: What is better: college or professional sports?
summary: I say that college sports are the better of the two because of the fact that most of the athletes that compete will never become professionals. They are playing for the pure love of the game, rather than for the big payday that professional athletes play for nowadays.

Like I said, don't know if anyone wants to debate this topic, but just something different besides the usual debate topics.

Username: Manaphyman
Topic: Gun Control/Second Amendment
Brief Summary: The 2nd Amendment pretains to militia and the right to own a gun to form one, and for hunting as well. Since miltia have been rendered obsolete, the only way an American should own a gun is if it is for hunting, and properly licensed. If we interpret this law the way my opponent has said we should, then I myself have the right to bear arms, any arms. A nuclear weapon could qualify as arms, so legally, I can own one. The 2nd Amendment needs to be clarified.

Ethical Rightness of Human cloning - Against
Summary: Human cloning devalues unique genetic skills and human life, for what is the point of worrying too much about one individual if you can make one just like them? Also, cloning requires egg donation, which may have negative effects on the donor. Finally, there just don't seem to be a real point in human cloning, especially with so many children wasting their lives in orphanages.

Topic: Against Same Sex Marriage in Christianity/Catholicism

I, firstly, believe that Same Sex Marriage is wrong. SSM is not only a violation of the Bible if you are Christan/Catholic, but it is also a very violation of nature's natural flow of life. Homosexuality is a choice. If you are Christian, only YOU decide you orientation. There is arguement that your orientation is not decidable by yourself but how you became, because why the hell would anyone be part of a group that is considered low? Because of increasing support of it. You decide to follow that support, thus, your orientation.

If you are out of Christianity/Catholicism, whatever. Have it your way. I don't know your religion so do whatever the heck you want with it. Nothing against that.

Stance: against. I fing it amazing that anyone would be irrational enough to think that there is a god.

Next debate is between dragon dark master and GhostAnime. Debate will be started shortly pending on whether the former is still active.

Edit: Actually I'm sorry, that's not true. Strants and Mini minun are next. My apologies.

While I'm here, I think I'll sign up.

Babylon
Death penalty
I believe the death penalty is sound punishment for murderers and there is no moral grounds for which it should be abolished.

Topic:Abortion
Stance:Against-a Fetus might depend entirely upon the mother's resources inside the womb, but it is a separate being, and should be regarded as such, that is, have human rights.

Heh, I'll take you up on that. I don't have strong ties to either side, but it might be interesting.

Topic: Abortion, for

I believe that a baby still in the womb is not yet a proper creature. It has not experienced sadness or joy, and is thus as of yet, a creature which cannot comprehend life.

Well, since I know that the other topic I would debate will not get any takers. I might as well take on a new challenge. Recently, I read that some states were considering a new bill that would require those applying for aid to take a drug test.

Username: PokemonHero
Topic: Drug testing to receive aid
Stance: For. Those people who abuse drugs have wasted money on satisfying their addiction which they should've used for taking care of themselves and/or their families. Taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for bills that a drug abuser could amass due to their addiction.

I'm not really active anymore, but I'll start one last debate. In the mean time I don't know the fate of this thread, maybe you could harrass Profesco to manage it. xD

Until someone else comes in and takes charge and I don't recommend posting. Haha.

Last challenge is between foxyman and BigLutz.

Topic: Evolution & Same Sex Marrige (Sorry couldn't decide between the two)
There is so much evidence for evolution I am surprised that it isn't more widely accepted.
If two people are in love they should be allowed to marry, I mean it doesn't affect me in any way.

Interesting how people still posted after I said this wasn't being managed anymore...

I'm going to have this closed, and perhaps in the future create a better organized one. When I can be bothered to do so ofcourse.
