Despite my post count, I'm very much the newbie to all this and I'd like to know what gets debated by skeptics? I mean with skeptics on both sides of the fence rather than topics on which we all (mostly) agree.
Ok, there's a degree of sub plot here. I learn best by doing but have the concentration of a gnat for topics where something is said and the responses are all clever forms of 'Yeah, agreed', or some poor believer wanders in and ends up over using the crying smilie. I'd like to see and learn from some real debates with equally well equipped participants - and join in of course!
What lies at the edge of skepticism? Would a question like 'Can science determine the presence of free will?' push the boundaries?
Last of all would others here like a debating section or thread where we debate with each other?
I want to push it a bit, not for malice but for learning and seeing what it looks like when all agree on the use of critical thought, references (at least if they're asked for), logic and the avoidance of fallacy.
