Might this be a bad idea? Do you want people that just accept, no thought? The fact that they are old ideas does not make them 100% correct and valid.....Plus, debate on the basics helps to clear up misconceptions at this level....misconceptions which would be greatly increased if debate on the basics was made out of bounds.........
