Title: 1-on-1 Discussion: Byakuren vs popsthebuilder
Post by: Hijiri Byakuren on June 06, 2016, 12:09:15 AM
I'd like to see how well popsthebuilder (http://atheistforums.com/index.php?action=profile;u=28037) holds up one on one, as I only ever see him getting dogpiled. Since this is a discussion rather than a full-on debate, I don't believe strict rules will be necessary. However, I do believe the following should be enforced:


Seeing as popsthebuilder is the one making the claim, I believe he should have the first post.

So pops, you feel up for it?

I'm up for conversation, sure.

I must ask first though; what claim am I making that you aren't making the opposite of? Just so we know where one another stand. Thanks.

I look forward to any mutually respectful rational conversation.


And just so you know; I see this was posted 2 days ago, but it was just recently brought to my attention.

I wasn't trying to put anyone off or anything.

Wait,... Edit again. You sent me the pm so you knew I hadn't seen it already...it's been a long day, don't mind me.

Peace

At the most basic level, you are claiming that there is a god, while I am simply testing your claim(s).

I'll add a disclaimer that there are specific gods which I do not believe exist, but I won't factor that into this discussion.

If that satisfies you, I'll get us a moderator, and we can begin.


Fair and balanced (like Fox News).

I'm having trouble already.

If I am claiming a thing, and you are claiming the opposite, then are we not both making claims?

I'm not claiming the opposite, I am testing your claim.

Sure.😊

Rock and roll babe!!

Mutual respect, and unbiased logic. I will admit when things can't be reached within sensible logic alone and be honest.

In the spirit of profitable peaceable conversation.

Shoot

Alright, I'll contact a moderator, and we can start once they open the thread.
