    Just for general knowledge I would like to know your perspective of who the best debater on hubpages is?

      Mark Knowles and Mohitmisra.

    Maybe they can put forward their own cases, and then debate on who is the best debater.

    It would be a massive debate.

    We seem to have quite a mass debating team here at HubPages.

      I'd say Paraglider, Inspirepub, Mark Knowles, and Londongirl could mix it with just about anyone in a debate.


      Especially in the religious forums!
      Many of the denizens are amazing mass debaters.

        Bah!  Religion forums get tooo much traffic. They shouldn't even count!

        I wanna recognize, before the topic is changed again, wink, (like it happens in the religion forums allll the time, lol), RK Henry, Ledefensetech, Ralph Deeds, Sufidreamer, and Pam Grundy...among others, some of which are no longer active...for the Political area.  An area which really counts...lol!  smile

          I don't think politics should count. There are too many unknown agendas in politics. It's hard to argue facts in politics when politicians don't know facts on most occasions.

          I think it should be a topic that a thug to a lawyer has knowledge on to be a fair debate.

                    I have no clue what I said either.  But then again, to get back to my main point, neither do the vast majority of politicians!  And from the way most of them act, they're probably SMOKING that weed you've been wanting to debate about, LOL!

      Someone come up with a topic, and I'll debate it.  I have about 5 years of LD training.  I prefer to pick the least popular side of the issue and drive it home.  This requires logic, of any sort.  I should have guessed it was Marinealways24 that came up with this.

      1. marinealways24 profile image60

        Ok, the topic. How about the mind of an animal compared to the mind of a human? Compare and Contrast.

          A debating motion here in the UK is something like, "This House Belives that Capital Punishment is Wrong", or, a debating title from just before the Second World War at Oxford University, "This House would not Fight for King and Country". Then you have proposition and opposition in relation to the motion.

              Debating is great fun, I did quite a bit and school and university. I went to a debating competition at Yale, too, once.

                You sound like my middle son LG ,he used to drive me crazy lol
                he loved debating everything...lol ( must be a Uni thing)

                But I do appreciate your skills in debate ,specially when you stay focused and attack the topic and not the person.

                I appreciate P.Grundy and Teresa for the same reasons.

    Amazing how within the first few posts this thread has already morphed from a question about who is the best debater on hub pages, into deciding on topics to have a debate.

    This place never ceases to amaze me!

    Weed legal?? are you kidding. In MA we're just hoping they keep
    cigaretts legal. There is a bill pending to ban smoking out doors. Outdoors!! What does that leave your house? Then they'll say, well if you have children your house is off limits too. And you expect them to make weed legal?

    I say Enderw1ggins is the best debater in history. He's way super cute too and humble. Way humble as a matter of fact i would say he is the most humblest in the entire universe.
    His arguments are perfect, his hair is perfect. I love that guy!

    We don't ever approach the bench here, it's all much more low key. Where in an American courtroom a lawyer would leap to his feet and yell, "OBJECTION yah Honour!", I would half-rise to my feet, and do a combined throat-clearing / mutter "My Lord?" or "Your Honour?" as appropriate
