Post #1

Post by otseng »

Nominate who you think is the best debater. The criteria will be up to you, but things you might want to consider are: logical, civil, respectful and follows the rules.

The winner of this award will receive the title "2022 Best Debater".

Only one nomination per person please. You cannot nominate yourself and the nominee must be in good standing (not on probation, not banned).

otseng

There's some great noms herein, but otseng is smart, tenacious, and ever thoughtful, no matter if I disagree on so much of his position.

I'm reminded of a video I once saw forever ago. A water buffalo was left alone from the protection of the herd, facing a pride of hungry lions. There was a chase, an attack defended. Another chase, another attack defended. For a good fifteen minutes the battle raged, neither side gaining the edge. Finally, the lions started dispersing. First one, then another, until the remainder of the pride decided it just wasn't worth risking them horns, that fury, that massive bulk.

otseng ain't no buffalo - I wouldn't want to dismiss his humanity - but that's just a quirk of his birth.

It's time he got his propers.
Discovery is finding things that exist.
Invention is using things discovered.

Create that path and engineer a metamorphosis.

This is not a fair/balanced poll.

Most of those weighing in aren't believers, so they more than likely wont consider any theists for the award...and vice versa.

That, followed by the fact that I've beaten most (if not all) of those nominated already.

HOWEVER...

For me, the best debater of 2022 has to be...

Winner..

*drumroll*

alexxcJRO

Alex has given me the most problems in 2022.

I actually had to break a sweat while dealing with him. Our discourses were a challenge, and I'd like to thank the brotha for keeping me on my intellectually toes...although, he still lost.

Honorable mention:

It's such a shame we can't nominate ourselves, eh? Here you go:

I nominate We_Are_VENOM for Best Debater.
My pronouns are he, him, and his.

Invalid nomination since We_Are_VENOM is not in good standing.

Several good ones to pick from ... I'll nominate Difflugia.
In human affairs the sources of success are ever to be found in the fountains of quick resolve and swift stroke; and it seems to be a law, inflexible and inexorable, that he who will not risk cannot win.
John Paul Jones, 1779

The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.
Mark Twain
