Can we have some nominees of people that are prepared to be on a panel of jurors to preside over a discussion on the evidential approach to the existence (or otherwise) of a "higher being"?

exactly, impartial means I have the right to dismiss you from the jury

You have the right??

who died and made you god?? :)

MAtas is the one convening this Jury, and his is the only recognised authority in this particular case.

If I need a suggestion for arcade machine or hair product I'll know where to look :)

I'd assumed that both Dan and I would have to agree on each member.

That is correct matabele. I will dismiss Fro on the grounds of bias and inability to be impartial.

May I suggest Manly Backer and Ryan?

Jury matters are different, each person pics the people with the background etc that they think will help their case.

I for instance suggested 2 who i do not know their pre-disposition but whom i think are more closely alligned with my thoughts, therefore the burden of proof is on Matabele to prove to them beyond reasonable doubt that there is a god. If they are convinced then likely I would be too

I'm happy with MB and Ryan if they want to be involved.

I nominate PJ and Clontaago (whom I suspect are also more inclined towards Dan's view?)

Might be better to go an odd number to ensure it is not hung?

9?

Does this mean I get put up in a (hopefully 4+ star) hotel along with free feed and drink? Do I then have to listen to 384 cross arguments? Sheesh - there had better be a bottle worth more than $30 somewhere in my room :)

Or at least not harm it, dependant on which side they are on

Whatever Dan, I shall not even protest.

Because if I'm right, you're not just fighting me (and if I'm right I might have spies everywhere).

So Dan, nominate some more. You'll notice I'm loading the jury your way.
