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.
To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
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.
Yes they look vaguely similar. I believe that Pepsi is trying to show their support for President Obama but I can guarantee you that if something goes wrong during his presidency, they will be first to say it had nothing to do with it.
It does look familiar but it reminds me more of an airline logo. The white part looks like a plane or a bird or something. Kinda like Air Quantas or Braniff, or Republic airlines. I wish I could post pictures here.
It's really obvious. I was in D.C. for the weekend and there were Pepsi ads ALL OVER THE PLACE. Especially in the subway. And they all spelled out simple words and phrases like "woo-hoo!" and "soweet" where and O or two would be the Pepsi symbol.
pepsi's logo has always had that same color scheme, and the same circular image. the only difference is that it is slanted upwards, instead of directly across it. To make such a connection, i find, is rather ridiculous.
Eh, you know, it's a nice idea, but I don't think they would change their logo for a campaign. That was their symbol before he won, right? I had never thought about that until I saw this debate. Anyway, Obama's too cool for Pepsi :P
i have seen this logo many times, however never associated it with Pepsi. So no connection. The symbolry is simple, Obama (represented by the 'O') as New hOpe On american hOrizon, sunrise for america. The stripes also represent farmers tilled fields.
by the way the createdebate logo was designed by us. =)
The Pepsi logo doesn't look ANYTHING like the Obama symbol!. Yeah, they both have red, white and blue. Wow! So do a lot of other things. I would never look at the Pepsi symbol and think Obama or look at the Obama symbol and think Pepsi. They are VERY different. I see an American flag variation with the Obama symbol. I don't see that at all with the Pepsi logo.
The new Pepsi logo is called the "smile" logo, as it's supposed to look like it's smiling. They have had a very similar logo for a very long time, except the white part was a swirl that was the same width the whole way through. All they did was widen the white swirl at one end to again, make it look like it's smiling.
Some of you ridiculous people will grasp at straws and look for any excuse to believe what you want to believe. Why on earth would Pepsi want to alienate a good portion of their customers by sending that kind of message? It does NOT make sense.
