He mentioned that policy should be based on Christian values -- the extension of which is a nonsecular state.

1) How about a Christian state based entirely on your philosophy? 2) It's equally unreasonable to think any policy based solely on Christianity would go over well. For instance, most Christian co...

I think the reply was directed toward ColeTrain. I'm an atheist, and a liberal, and don't believe any of this
|Capital Punishment - Posted by Tejretics 2017-02-10 07:08:41|
Why not? If you're willing to legislate based on religion, why not go the whole way and make the U.S. a Christian state?

Out of curiosity, would you support theocracy?
|Capital Punishment - Posted by Tejretics 2017-01-01 05:56:09|
Because it's God's Word. That's a really silly question. No, it isn't. State and God are separate entities. Well if you don't believe or trust in Jesus as your personal Savior, then you're...

First, why should the state be obliged to follow God's word? Second, prove that religious document(s) are God's word. The onus is on you to prove that some Earthly document is the "word"...

When, and why, should political decisions be influenced by religious text (e.g. the Bible)?

I'll also note that if Aff wins in such a scenario, let Aff win in a 0-0 scenario as well...because last I checked, there ARE unvoted debates...if there's one bad vote and nobody else votes, it's a 0-...

"Draws" aren't a feature. Voting standards to prevent vote bombs are a feature.

What if, in a hypothetical situation, two people judge and it's 1-1? Same issue. But whatever, I really am not even arguing that edeb8 should adopt such a feature -because, frankly, I don't care. I do...
|Judging: How should it be done? - Posted by Tejretics 2016-04-18 11:53:58|
The difference between formal debate and edeb8 is that there are no absolutely terrible judges who don't even *read* the debate let alone type a proper RFD in formal debate. There are no draws when pe...
|Judging: How should it be done? - Posted by Tejretics 2016-04-17 05:11:14|
I mean there should NOT be a winner - the vote should be removed. A 0-0 tie is **way** better than an unjust loss.
|Judging: How should it be done? - Posted by Tejretics 2016-04-13 13:57:51|
1. That is not what happens on Edeb8. Length =/= quality. 2. No, it wouldn't, because if a judgement is of bad quality, it should have **zero** points. On Edeb8, a single person can vote a bad v...

At least with routine forfeiters, the debater who didn't forfeit gets a reward: the victory. With bad voters, the debater's prize: a loss.
|Judging: How should it be done? - Posted by Tejretics 2016-04-09 13:54:41|
I basically like the status quo on DDO a lot with regards to voting standards. Votes that don't fit the appropriate standards are removed. I think "very poor judgements" is way too lenient, ...

The thing is, let's say you debate a really popular person ... you win undoubtedly and crush their arguments, but BOOM! they're popular = they win.

Can you make RFDs compulsory on the voting? Or vote-bombing will be easy, with biased votes, etc. It works much better with compulsory RFDs, or allowing members to make RFDs compulsory on debates they...
