Conclusion for debating topics

Post by dipjyoti » Sun Mar 04, 2007 10:20 am

Hello everyone,

Here is a request to the moderators of our forum, that to make conclusion on the debating topics which are going on for a long time.
We like, respect & love our moderators so this is my request to them that in most debating topics their decision is last. Otherwise the argument will never end.

I think other members will enjoy this. :)


Thank You

I strongly disagree. Moderators, like all of us share different opinions. Just because they, for the most part, know more than us, does not mean they are "right" in all these discussions. There usually isn't even a "right" answer to many of these. Ending the discussions is destroying the point of the forum. The forum is here for discussing things.

I don't see why they should be stopped, or why you want them stopped.

P.S. I meant no offense to any of the moderators. I respect all of you immensely, and I understand you have the last say here.

I agree with Kyle

And I agree With Kjle and Lyne.

We are not here to give definitive answer to quesions. First because we do not know everything, and also because, often, there is no such thing as a definitve answer. So we are just here to keep the forum working and welcoming to everyone.

It is true that we do not know every thing under the sun.

But is it not possible to come in a conclusion for most debating topic like "Global Warming" sharing our views?

After making the conclusion, discussion can be carry on.

Kjle, I agreed with your point but I said, 'the argument will never end' not the SCIENTIFIC discussion.

Because I and lots of our teachers & professors think & maintain this, that there should be a SCIENTIFIC conclusion for most debating SCIENTIFIC discussions, we don't think it will end it up.

I'm not saying to put conclusion for every post.

But a conclusion/Summary will be much better for a long going discussions.

Everyone's suggestion is welcomed. And please share your views.

Thank You

One question, does a debate have to actually end or conclude?

I'm pretty sure that debates don't HAVE to end. I think it is more of that debates choose to end if I am making sense.

Yes, I would agree with you.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Well, some threads I want to lock just because people are beating a dead horse over and over. For example the creationist thread is long dead(OP is gone) and we still have people posting.

Of course if you lock that thread a new one will just crop up again, and so on and so forth. Really the only way to stop it is to ban creationists from the forum, but that seems a bit too harsh in my opinion.

I agree. Those dead ones are a bit interesting though to start up again. Forum aren't really dead.........just sleeping and it is fun to wake them up.
