Questions about Debate
Hello all.

I'm new here ( and perhaps I didn't spend enough time searching) and I can't seem to locate a formal debate category.

Do you have one?

If I wished to debate a topic with a theist with formal rules and a regulator could I do that?
How might I go about that?
Who would choose the debate subject? 

I would also like to read some if you have them somewhere. 

Thank you all.

God

Is God willing to spot the debate forum, but not able? Then he is not online.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is disinterested.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh his debate request?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

What do you mean I can't rep you again???  What is wrong with this goddam system?
Belief .. is the insistence that the truth is what one would .. wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. 


Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be.

It would be cool to have one, they are very rare. I've only witnessed one, or possibly two, since I've been here.

I'd like to do one sometime.

That's because any debate about god is stillborn.

Lately they seem to be stillborn over disagreement on particulars of the debate format, someone gets caught plagiarizing, or.. well I could go on. Suffice it to say we haven't had a successful one in some time.
