@lewisoflime Congrats for advancing to the next round!@vodkrates Great, job, thank you for participating!
Con was so close and did so well for his first debate! I can’t blame Pro for forcing Con to defend terrorism, and Con pointing to a belief being radical was not as great as if he would have compared it as karma.
@julian thanks for the feedback, Julian
Congrats, man. I appreciate the challenge.
In this debate Lewis did great. He had very precise arguments and stuck to his arguments to the Tee. Vodkrates seemed a little nervous at start but settled in later on. One thing i would disagree with Lewis is he attempted to use Suicide Bombers as a big key of a bad result of Someone who fears the after life. Is this really true though is the terrorist strapping the bomb to himself because of Fear or Love? I would argue he does it out of Love in his mind not out of Fear other than that though Lewis hands down Won this debate.Vodkrates did not spend much time defending the fear of afterlife view, he spent most of the time referring to Karma and different words his opponent said. So in my last thought Lewis stayed to his game plan and i think Vodkrates did not
@orv_claus That's a great argument. I would argue that love is voluntary - and radical extremism doesn't present rational choices. They are compelled, upon fear of eternal torment, to carry out horrific atrocities. So they might love the god they believe in too - but fear is definitely a primary motivation. There's no other way out for them.That's just my opinion though! Thanks for reviewing.
