I love to debate. Those who know me well, or well enough, will say that I love to argue. For me, it is not just about arguing though; the thrill comes from the exchange of ideas and my lack of knowledge about a particular topic often leads me to further research. After all, education is not limited to a designated building; the world is a great classroom, and debate is an effective method of gaining/imparting knowledge.
Now, am I, you, we (anyone participating in debates on this site) going to change the world from any debates that might ensue here? Perhaps not. However, there is no harm in expanding one’s mind and increasing one’s knowledge base, through engaging in friendly, constructive debate as a pastime.
With that in mind, lets get the debate(s) going.
Ready. Set. Debate!
“It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it.” Joseph Joubert
