Works for me.
In my published discussion of the nature of the First H&E, I started with a 60-page demonstration of preterism. So, we will first need to establish preterism. Are you a preterist? What type? Do you believe that all of the Olivet discourse is fulfilled?
I am a FULL Preterist. I believe that ALL of the Olivet discourse has been fulfilled. I even go further in that I believe that all of Ezekiel has been fulfilled. Moreover, I like Wanda am a Reformed Preterist.
I want to make two suggestions about the debate:
1. That you take the affirmative position meaning that you defend your view that the creation of Genesis 1 is the first H&E. I will take the negative position attacking your view. This is how we started so it is natural to continue it this way.
2. Allyn has informed me that Bev will be the moderator. But I would like to ask a person who is a debate judge in real life academia and also on another discussion board. He judged a debate between me and another person before. His name is Dennison. If he is available I would like to ask him. I don't have a problem with Bev moderating. I just like having a professional debate judge. If he is not available Bev is fine with me. I trust that she will do research on being a debate judge.
Dennison even has different formats we can look at. In the formats he uses nobody wins or loses though I will hang you up like wallpaper regardless. Dennison is not a Preterist but I have found him friendly toward Preterism. Inviting him here to judge may just cause him to become a part of our family.
Then we can work out format and timing and starting date. I will copy and paste this on a new thread "Defining and Setting the Terms." Please reply there from now on relating to the details of the debate. We should not clutter this thread working out the details.
Okay so we agree on the topic which is "The First H&E."
This is all I have time for today. We will hammer out a lot of the details tomorrow.
