CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy.
If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
Arguments with the highest score are displayed first.
Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument.
To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
To vote for an argument, use these icons:
You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument.
Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change.
Yes, you can change your vote.
Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account.
All scores are updated in real-time.

When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument.
If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
She was a bartender months ago, and without being a climatologist, tells us the world is going to end in 12 years.

Ninety seven percent of all the actively publishing climatologists on the face of the planet agree that AGW is a reality, but you're attacking a woman who believes exactly the same thing as they do purely on the grounds that she isn't a climatologist. After spending several years conversing with American Republicans I have reached the conclusion that you are just really, really stupid.
