I would like to challenge and debate MYSELF (I will explain it later) on the issue of Death Penalty (DP from now on), so we could put this issue to rest forever. The debate would be universal, meaning not country specific, thus all or any country can be brought up as example, not just the US. Logical fallacies are not allowed, facts are very welcomed. Opinions are nice but you can keep it for yourself. Why debate myself? Well, one condition for a debate would be that I don't debate orthodox people, who are UNWILLING to change their mind on the topic. Why? Because the debate would be worthless, and I would be wasting my time and lots of good arguments. The other side wouldn't learn anything and would never acknowledge any good point to be made. Eventually the debate would end in frustration. The DP issue is pretty much like a religion, people just don't change their view on it based on arguments or facts. So since I don't think there is a member here on Sciforums who pass this test, I have to debate myself. Now how would that go? Well, since there are very few real good and logical argument for the DP just for fun I will debate websites where these arguments are listed. So if Syzygys accepts the invitation for the debate, I would like to ask anti-DP people to list the best websites with anti-DP arguments, and I will go through the top 3 and refute them one by one. At the end of the debate posters can vote in the Discussion thread if Syzygys won or Syzygys. It is a win-win situation for everyone... So Syz, are you up for the debate? P.S.: I also don't debate Moderators anymore on this issue, based on bad experience in the past. Unless they can not moderate the debate thread.
