A big part of Ratburger.org for me is to have a place where heated debates can be had once again. I love a good back and forth that challenges me. It sharpens me and gets me to think. Even though I think I am always right, I like to see the other perspective. And when I am wrong, I get to be corrected so I am always right again.
I should clarify about what I mean by a heated debate. I mean a debate about some issue and not a debate on the total lack of integrity and intellectual honesty of my interlocutor. (I take that as a given, don’t you?)
It is great to be around people with similar beliefs but it is even better at times to get to test my mettle against a worthy opponent especially that guy who lives in the middle of Europe.
