What Should the Topic of the First Formal FE Debate Be?
#7
The topic of the first debate will be "Can Vatican II be Reconciled With Tradition?"

The rules of the debate:



1. Each side makes a brief, one paragraph introduction of around 500 words.

2. The first side (determined by me using some random method) makes a post outlining his argument.

3. The second side can then cross-examine the first side (getting answers only, not responding to them) only for the purposes of clarification -- NOT debate.

4. The second side gives their main arguments.

5. The first side can then cross-examine the first debater, per #3 above.

6. The second debater writes a rebuttal post.

7. The first debater writes a rebuttal post.

8. The first side rebuts again.

9. The second side rebuts again.

10. The winner is declared by poll.

So, we have Prie-die arguing for the YES side. Who wants to argue that Tradition and Vatican II are NOT reconcilable?

NOTE that if someone else wants to debate the YES side, give your name! We can pick among a pool of volunteer debaters for either side!
