Greatest Thinker Showdown! Round 2A

Post by tuttle » Fri Jan 18, 2019 8:54 am

READ THIS BEFORE YOU VOTE!!!

Thinkers are going head to head (hyuk, hyuk) in the bracket. (ie. Plato vs Aristotle) so choose one hero from each letter. (Choose ONE Thinker from the A) category, ONE Thinker from the B) and so on). If you mess up and pick two from the same category, you should be able to change your vote to correct it. Clear as mud? Ask if you have any questions.

Please use this forum to vote and to lobby for your favorite Thinkers above. Winners move on to Round 3

Your Thinkers battling it out for Round 2 (A) are:

A) Winnie the Pooh vs DL Jake

B) coco vs CS Lewis

C) Aristotle vs Plotinus

D) Edmund Burke vs King Solomon

Plotinus was against casual astrology.


I'll bet he was a Taurus.
