This is a formalism variant of the previous debate for anyone to participate in.
Rules are as follows:
In this unique multi-user debate format, debating is open to all in a multi-round, and timed debate, followed by a 24 hour voting period.
The Debate creator specifies a topic and ground rules, as well as selecting the number of rounds (1 round - 3 rounds) and the time per round (ranging from the exclusive 15 minutes “Blitz” to 48 hours).
Debaters take turns posting arguments and their stated position (for or against). You can only post one argument per round, and must participate in the prior round in order to advance to the subsequent round.
When the last round ends, anyone can vote using a 9 point voting and explanation system. The voting categories include: Persuasive Argument, Spelling and Grammar, Evidence and Sources, and Conduct. Each vote should be explained using the voting explanation system. If you feel that a vote is unfair or not appropriately explained then simply flag the vote. The same can be done with an argument.
After the 24-hour voting period, the winning side is determined.
At some point in the distant past, the universe went through a phase of cosmic inflation,
Stars formed, planets coalesced, and on at least one of them life took root.
Through a long process of evolution this life developed into the human race.
Humans conquered fire, built complex societies and advanced technology .
All of that so we can argue about nothing.
