Opposite day at the League!
atheists do their best to argue that theism is correct and the theists do their best to argue that atheism is correct. Perhaps some Jews can argue that
Christianity is correct and vice versa. The point is to get you to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and see what the logic looks like from that
It’ll only work if you really try, though. You must resist mocking or parodying the position you’re supposed to be fighting for.
Also part of the tradition as we can see is to post stuff, not under your own nom-de-plume, but under your evil twin’s. So for example, my Evil Twin would be called Ilarum (unless any of you have a better idea). People are free to call their evil twin whatever they want so long as the it he is recognisably their evil twin. The point is basically is to get you question your own beliefs. So guys, any suggestions for us? I don’t want to put a hard and fast rule against people choosing their own topics, but I don’t want to make it too easy. Also, the point is not to say something which is consistent with your beliefs, but which gives you a mustachio, goatee and monocle. Your evil twin is evil because he says something which you think is wrong!.
P.S. Tentatively, Opposite day/week will start on the 5th of
november december (h/t to wardsmith for picking it up) in your own time zone. So, we have roughly a week to hammer out who is going to say what.
P.P.S Guest posts are also welcome.
P.P.P.S Also, since I don’t want to put any brakes on our normal posting schedule, we can just title and/or tag our opposite day posts differently.
