I thought we should have a little section for battles and contests between characters and types, historical or fictional, real or imaginary. I often wonder about who would prevail in various fights or match ups (like Hulk vs Superman), who is better at detective work between Sherlock Holmes or Detective Poirot, and so on. Questions of this nature excite the competitve juices and creativity of responses. So here we can debate who would win and why, and also this can be good debate practice for making good arguments in general. So, without further ado, I shall present the first match-up: Cavemen vs Astronauts. The situation is this. There are 5 Cavemen and 5 Astronauts slated to face other on a neutral planet. Each group is comprised of the finest specimens of their type, the Cavemen are strong and robust and savage, the Astronauts are clever, resourceful, and careful. They were abducted by an advanced alien species, who snatched them out of time and placed them into a contest of survival between each other. Victory is attained when one group either subdues or kills the other, when one or the other group is totally wiped out or incapacitated. The landscape they are on is a wilderness type of area. There are wild animals, forests, and mountains. They have to fend for themselves and survive off the land during the contest as well. They have plenty of preparation and planning time. Then they must engage in the hunt and battle each other for domination. Both groups know the stakes are high. The victorious group gets to go home. Who will win, Cavemen or Astronauts??? (I got this idea from an episode of Star Trek the original series where two groups had to fight each other after being abducted by aliens and also the Cavemen and Astronauts match-up comes from an episode of Angel if I remember correctly).
