The recent gun thread in the Wii forum made me realise this, thought I'd raise it as an issue.

There's no room on the NL forum to exchange ideas on politics, religion etc etc. While I agree that it can be unwelcome in some threads and forums, leading to heated tempers and bad feelings, it would also be a good idea to have a sanctioned debate forum for civilised discussion.

After all, politics and world issues are important topics.

I don't predict that this topic will last very long, but here goes:

I think we should debate the world's economy.

Moderating a forum dedicated to debating would be a nightmare.

I agree that we should have some sort of debate forum, but I feel some people go a bit over the top when it comes to debates (including myself ) which is why it's probably frowned upon here.

Eh, frowns are just upside down smiles anyway. If you're frowning at something, from a skeptic's point of view, you're actually smiling at it.

^This. A debate forum could really get out of hand (especially if someone starts spouting insults toward someone's intelligence).

Abortion should be legal, there is no god, and gays should be allowed to marry.

Actually I was writing out a long reply in the gun topic, clicked post and it was gone...

Y'know I don't know what the problem was with such a thread. Debates are healthy, they're a good way to express your oppinion to people who will listen and also hear their point of view. Just because a topic looks like a heated arguement doesn't mean it's anything bad. There's no name calling, no threats - just differing oppinions and I really don't see anything wrong with that.

I'm a bit concerned that good discussions on here could be closed in future just because of a bit of debate or differing oppinions, which certainly isn't a good way to run a forum.

Actually, yeah, I got an epic LOL from that.

As for the abortion thing, it should only be legal under certain circumstances. Like, what if you were raped?

God exists because of Rule 34. There is porn of God, therefore, he exists.

Gays have every right to get married. Nothing in the Bible or anything says otherwise.

It's a dumb idea if you come up with dumb topics, I agree.

Well proven.

But of course I have faith that this community is smart enough to debate relevent and interesting topics like gay rights and gun control.

I know you mean no harm, Waltz, but bringing up a thread that is about debates regarding politics, economy, or religion could start a plethora of debates (or worse, arguments).

That's the point. Debating is healthy for the mind.

@WaltzElf

You and me make two people who can debate intelligently. I wonder if we can get up to two and a half.
