From DebatepediaDebatepedia is a wiki encyclopedia of debates, arguments, and supporting quotations. Its mission is to become "the Wikipedia of debates". It is a place where we can all work together as editors, via the same wiki technology driving Wikipedia, to frame the arguments in public debates that we all need to think through. These are debates in our neighborhoods, cities, states and provinces, nations, and in an increasingly interconnected world.
The problem is that this is currently far too difficult to do. Arguments, evidence, and quotes (important to our deliberations) are scattered across the web, newspapers, magazines, journals, and books. We, subsequently, cannot view this information in one place, where we can understand opposing arguments in one sitting, and deliberate through them toward a confident conclusion. Debatepedia solves this problem with the combination of a proven "logic tree" methodology and the wiki technology that allows masses of citizen-editors like you to collaborate on scale. Like with Wikipedia, our collective efforts will produce the greatest encyclopedia of debates and arguments the world has ever seen. Think of how "the Wikipedia of debate" would change the world and the way we think through the difficult challenges we face in the twenty first century. Join this community as an editor to help advance this mission, learn and fortify your beliefs, and help apply the lessons of Wikipedia to the realm of reason.
