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.
I don't mean this debate, I mean most of them on create debate. They aren't really debates.
What I mean is, I would go to this party and tell everyone that they need to act like they have a life and post some better debates. Something that isn't exactly YES vs. NO. Go read some philosophy, a chapter in morals and ethics, create one that is actually useful and difficult...
I would like to see though, just what people are really like here on CD, in RL, especially JoeC.
I'd pose as a hobo and crash the party, eat up all the cheese, spike the punch, then disappear, only to reappear shortly as my normal self, get drunk, complain loudly and ceaselessly about the lack of cheese and the hobo smell of the place, until everyone hates me, and I leave you in scorn.
First of all, some participants on here I am truly afraid of! That's right. Some of you scare me!!!! ;)...
On the other hand, we could cut out the technology and rely on nothing but the raw facts we could pull of the top of our heads. I would be interested to see how well some of the most successful debaters could do without having to constantly google the meaning of this and that! =]
So, yes. I might drop in to see how debaters work in real time. However, I would not stay long because after a few attacks the CreateDebate party would turn into a CreateDebate war. The ambulance and the cops would show up. It would be a huge disaster in the end... ;)
So you are knocking those of us who reference our facts? For the record, I know about what I am talking about, but for those who want to learn more or for those who don't believe me, I provide a reference... this is a basic concept of a proper debate.
Yes, you are right... no one should rely on the twisted opinions of the media. But I did not understand what you meant until you explained it, so I guess you did not get your point across so matter of fact or as simple as you thought it was.
I would give you a ton of points up for that if I could... if people understood that very point more, this world would be a better place! =) We all need to try to understand things from others perspective! ;)
