Who would you like to see in a Great Debate with who?

Which two members would you like to see go head to head, on what subject and why?

I would like to see:

Oni and Buz on cosmology - Coz it'd be funny, good natured and potentially informative in a head banging kinda way.

Dr Adequate and RAZD on the (ir)rationality of atheism - Coz Dr A is one of the few atheists who hasn't engaged RAZ on this topic and coz if he did he would do it with characteristic "attitude" that would be an interesting counter to RAZ's subtler but equally attitude laden approach. "Curiously.........."

Granny Magda and Slevesque on evolution as just an interpretation of evidence - Like to see this conversation taken to an end point.

Mod and Percy debate anything that they can fnd to fundamentally disagree upon - Intellectual curiosity.

Artemis Enteri and Rrhain debate a gay related legal issue - Just for the hell of it.

Arachnophilia and ICANT: "basic reading of genesis 1:2." I'm ready for the sequel.

Holmes and Crashfrog: any subject at all. For the fireworks.

Percy and Buzsaw: "What is evidence?". Just so they can finally put that topic to bed. Yeah, I kid.

RAZD and Cavediver
I was actually thinking of this the other day.

RAZD and Cavediver. Im not sure which subjects they disagree on but from reading some of their comments I think it would make for an awesome debate.

Could we get Coyote the Scientist to debate Coyote the Conservative on how to deal with personal bias in evaluating evidence?

At the top, between Search and Forums is "Members"... In there you can find everyone and if you click on their name (anyone's name anywhere in the forums) then it'll take you to a list of their posts by date:

Percy and I have only really disagreed fundamentally on moderation procedures, and it was rather a dull and short argument. That said, I vote for Mod and somebody since I've never had opportunity for a Great Debate.

I concur I'd like to see Dr A and RAZD.

I would like to see this one as well. Though my eyes are usually throbbing by the time I finish reading Rrhain's posts they are always chock full of information and well expressed thoughts. I believe that it would be nicely contrasted with Artemis' brevity and forcefull expression of opinion. This would be a good read since they are both such master debaters and cunning linguists.
