Congratulations to all. I think I'd agree the results.

Congrats all! I would have liked to see more representation from the theists, but I guess I can only partly blame myself for not nominating and/or voting for more of them. Bad me.

Anyway, at least tam is representing (and very well - go tam go!)

As much as we all bicker and argue about stuff, we would all be bored if we didn't have the other side to engage.

Indeed. I don't want to turn this into a debate but I'd say that, while I am impressed by many of the Theists and the qualities they bring to the debates, I feel they are hamstrung by not having a sound case and that will give the skeptical side an advantage.

This is the most positive thing I can imagine.

I went into the most improved poll and voted against myself because I know I was born perfect.

I would have nominated JoeyKnothead in best avatar but his avatar is always changing and I didn't think I could nominate a shapeshifting penguin in more flux than Schrodinger's cat.

Congratulations to the award winners. This is probably the only site where you can find good quality debate on a consistent basis. I think it starts with the tone that the leadership sets here :)

I just wish that there were more Christian apologists and agnostics, but that population might be off trying to do their own thing (podcasts, Youtube, etc.) Otherwise, this is a good place to sharpen one's thinking!
