No matter who wins or loses the debate, the fact that you were ability to open your mind and learn is all that matters… right? While that may be debatable itself, this is where you can find public debates about all types of topics. It includes a Serious Debate forum for issues that require research and an Other Debate forum for topics that can be very opinionated.
When a topic in question will need a bit of research and theory development to properly debate, then it most likely goes here. All replies in these topics are also required to be of an intelligent manner as we do not discourage anyone from stating their opinion, but it will need to be backed by some sort of fact or developed argument in this forum.
Topics that are based around a lot of opinions or that lack the true base to be debated via research belong here. While replies are encouraged to still be intelligent and thought out, they are not examined as harshly as the serious debates forum is.
