Juror Debate Rules
When we start this debate we will be acting as if Christianity is the Defendant & Atheism, Agnosticism etc. are the Prosecution. We will be deciding it's fate. We will be the Jury that will deliver a verdict. I'll lay down a few quick rules for this debate & then we can get on with business. After you've read the rules you guys can decide if these rules touch all areas or they need editing. Just tell me about any point of contention you might have.
Alright, Here's the rules:
1. No one is to be antagonized for their vote. If any fights break out we will take a one day recess from this forum.
2. Your vote must be made without any doubt. You must have no reason why not to believe a certain piece of evidence, testimony, or fact. If you do you must vote Not Guilty & bring your doubt up before the Jury. If they cannot reconcile it & you still have a reasonable doubt you must continue your vote of Not Guilty.
3. Everyone has the right to call for a vote. If a vote is called for, we have two types we can do. One way is to just post our vote. The other is to e-mail me & the Admin your vote. We will count up the votes & then post the outcome.
4. We must reach a verdict of 8-0. If we cannot after two adjournments we must attempt to clear it up. If we cannot we will have to pause this debate & attempt to compile more evidence for both sides.
