About me

Like Theweakeredge I am just a teenager who spends a lot of time on this website. I love the community and getting my views challenged. Despite being very competitive of nature I mostly debate creative topics rather than serious ones. In fact, I often lose debates merely because of the strange positions I am willing to try and defend. But that's fine, as I am an eager learner, and I don't expect to win many of those debates.

My topics of interest are philosophy, science and religion, yet I can debate about nearly anything. I start many forums and like to hear the opinion of people. Apart from my (unfortunate) clashes that might get heated up, I try to be respectful and don't overrun other people.

Rhetoric is not my strongest side -- I am actually not a native English speaker and use certain words repetitively. I rely mostly on facts, logic and definitions, since those stand without need for flashy arguments. Yet sometimes I try to use semantics and Kritiks, which I need to learn if I want to improve.

Maybe in the future I might become a good debater. Who knows.
