A 3-man team here at the L. F. Nexus, working ten hours a day for ten days has just completed an exhaustive study of over 1,000 message boards across the United States and globally. The focus was on “debate-style message boards.” Here are their conclusions:
No debater is permitted to allow their moral and ethical insights (called also “discernment,” “illumination,” “revelation,” “special revelation,” “moral insight,” “discrimination,” “perception,” “penetration,” “acumen,” etc., etc.) into (the character and motives of) other debaters to intrude into any debate.
As a result of these findings, the L. F. Nexus has disbanded the MBT Crew and will no longer study U.S. and global message boards. We ask that our subscribers no longer inform us of what is being said on the message boards about the L. F. Nexus.
The resources formerly devoted to the work of the MBT Crew will now be devoted to the creation of an “intelligent debate forum” here at the L. F. Nexus, where Christians can learn at an accelerated pace by following “intelligent rules of debate.”
Everyone will be welcome, even our critics. OF COURSE, EVERYONE WILL HAVE TO ABIDE BY THE MORAL EXCLUSIONARY RULE, INCLUDING OUR CRITICS.
The timetable for “NEXDRUM,” the “Nexus Debate Forum,” will depend on how much funds we have available to implement the project.
Note that when the “MX Rule,” the Moral Exclusionary Rule, is followed, debaters are persuaded more quickly about the strength or weakness of their position.
Everyone will be allowed to express their view BUT, AGAIN, they must follow the MX Rule, as well as other rules of intelligent debating, which we shall set forth on an upcoming web page.
Finally, Dr. Bisconti is looking forward to this project. He intends to participate personally in the debates.
