Hello DeMons.

Welcome to the first debate contest of 2010. The first debate contest is now open. Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate. Everyone will be on their own and will present their own arguments.

Topic:

Before you were born, God gave you a choice to pick your place of birth. The choices are

a) USA
b) India

There's a condition attached.

If it is USA, you would be born to a long time committed lesbian couple in a moderate town. If it is India, you would be born to a single unwed mom in a small town. In both cases father is completely out of the picture.

Time period of being born is nineties, when society still had strong sense of taboo. Otherwise income, lifestyle etc is middle class. In todays age you would in be somewhere in pre-teen to teens or so.

Which life would you choose and why? Why is your choice of life better than the other?

The contest will run for ten days till 06/05. I will post when the contest is closed.

Judgment:

The credit for the original topic goes to Mister. K, who was originally supposed to help judge this contest. Unfortunately he has withdrawn. The remixed topic is my idea. I will be judging and have contacted a few other members regarding judgment who will be anonymous guides from the Force. But see the scoring considerations

Some Scoring Considerations:

Content of posts, rather than number of posts

Who was the first to bring up a point

How consistent and coherent someone is in supporting their points

How well they challenge and/or refute points made by others 

Impress with logic and argument, not conforming to the judges past viewpoints. Tongue

Hints to get started:

What will society be more accepting off?

What provides a better growing atmosphere?

How has each society evolved?

What will be more challenging for current day kids?

Any moral implications?

Reminder:

Just to remind contestants that COC is applicable at all times.


*IMPORTANT: Members please note that this thread is for the debate contest only. Please do not post post in this thread unless you are participating and do not disrupt the debate with your own opinions and comments etc. Once the contest is closed, I will update the title and then everyone will be free to post and discuss. In the meantime you may read the discussion and 'like' arguments and posts or jump in the contest if you dare. *

You can ask questions here for judges to answer. Maybe other contestants have questions.

Alright, I have updated the topic regarding some concerns about the previous topic. Hopefully, this is more appealing to some people who need more heated religious and moral issues to debate on.
