Nice idea to have a structured debate and to have this peanut gallery :)

Looking forward to reading what they each have to say.

Could we have a before n after poll on the thread to see if the debate has been persuasive?
For me, the value of a climb is the sum of three inseparable elements, all equally important: aesthetics, history, and ethics

Who won the debate is a different question than whether it was persuasive.

Which reminds me of this silly scene:

That's what you get when you make an anime wherein every single moment has to be epic.
Epic writing:



It's actually quite entertaining if you accept the over use of epicness as intentional.
It's got a quite an intelligent plot.

This is such a waste of time. What are any of us going to learn from this that we don't already know?
The question is not, "Can they reason?" nor, "Can they talk?" but rather, "Can they suffer?"
