    I was just wondering what really good debates you've been in before. Real life/here I guess. What were they?

    And tell me why you thought they were good. It'd be kinda dull to just see you post a link to the thread you debated in or something.


    I remember have a really good debate about religion. An ex of mine was a hardcore Christian Baptist, and I was just asking him questions about what he thought about atheists. He said that he can't be around them, and I just kept asking questions. It wasn't meant to turn into a debate, but I was asking him question to get his mind going. Basically, I was asking him questions to think about his own faith. He was really offended by this and told me to fuck off. All I was doing was trying to get him to see why some people choose to be atheist. I didn't think it was a bad thing.


    He came back to me and told me that he was hurt that I was making him question himself. I smiled and said, "All I did was ask questions. The doubt was already there, babe."

    The best debates I've had have been with myself. No specific topic comes to mind as I argue pretty much the gamut. Not only do I find them to be the most challenging, but while disagreeing, we are never rude to each other.

    A good debate requires competent, mature opponents, so the best debate sort of relies on your company as much as your own performance.
