Are ghosts real spirits? vs Are they something else?

Is Nessie real? vs Is it just mistaken identity?

Are the pyramids older than is commonly accepted? vs Were they built by the Ancient Egyptians?

Do aliens create crop circles? vs Are the all man made?

current affairs

good v evil

mans inhumanity to man

alien abduction    myth or reality

de ja vu  a glimpse into the future or something more sinister

you name it I'll debate it

Then let us again examine whether that is a sound statement, or do we let it pass, and if one of us, or someone else, merely says that something is so, do we accept that it is so? Or should we examine what the speaker means?

How about moral issues like:

Are mediums fake or genuine?

Do or did faeries/little people exist or can they be explained by some other means?

Nessie: real pleisiosaur in the loch or illusions/hoaxes/tourist propaganda?
