Boxers or briefs?

Hmm...how about Thor vs Odin!

Thor vs Odin debate, in which Thor folks gotta go against Odin folks in a battle of wits and epic storytelling.

(Just to mention, Saru reminds me of Thor, due to his 8-legged horse called High-Internet Connection, and his mighty Ban Hammer.) grin2.gif

Please post your ideas for new debate topics here. If you'd like to challenge someone to a debate and aren't sure what topic to go for then this thread should provide you with a few ideas, alternatively if you have an idea for a debate topic that you'd like to see someone else have a go at then please feel free to post it here.
Hi Saru – a number of people have suggested (in this thread-topic) that they would like to debate a specific topic.

A problem, as I see it, is that not too many folks come and read through this particular “thread”, and so are not aware of who would like to debate what.

I wonder if you would consider starting a “dedicated topics-thread” where people would post what they wish to debate, and which side they want to argue? That way, interested people could easily accept a debate direct from that thread-page, by clicking on a person's name, for example (???) -- and have a suitable "acceptance to a debate" form presented to them.

And, when someone accepts a debate, the original post could be removed, to avoid acceptances from more than one person at a time.

Just a thought …
Karlis

If such a debate is permissable, I would enjoy debating the existence of god with someone. I don't wish this to be a debate about any particular religions' definition of god though, but rather simply whether god in some form exists. In the spirit of debate I would be willing to argue for the existence of god if someone of religious belief would entertain arguing against the existence of god?

I'd argue for a non-specific higher power of sorts or against Theism.

Do you define Theism as simply the belief in a deity, church, and would it argue against the existence of a higher power or would it simply suggest the worship of such is foolish? I don't wish the debate to be about the validity of belief but about the existence of a higher power. If your argument against Theism would not include that then I will debate you with you arguing for the existence of a higher power, and me, against.

If no one else takes you up on this, I might accept this debate.  I think i could successfully debate the non-existence of God, if you could be willing to debate a creator (non-specific) does exist.  However, I'm currently in the middle of another debate and don't want to over-extend myself.  I have real life to contend with as well somewhere along the lines, lol tongue.gif  

If no god-believer takes you up before then, count me in.  But if someone does come in, I'd be happy to read this at this as an observer also thumbsup.gif

I'm unsure if church's "against Theism" is about belief or god, PA, so I'll wait and see if that's okay with you. If I debate for god against church then I'll debate the other side against you after both debates [including yours with Tiggs] are done with. I appreciate your offer as I specifically wanted people to debate the side they don't necessarily believe themselves - such is the true art of debate that the personal belief of the debator is unimportant.  original.gif

You and Tiggs have set a high benchmark for debates, btw. Hope I can live with the standards you've set!
