Bring it On

Greetings to the contender, I have titled this debate "Bring it on," as the contender will suggest three to five controversial topics (and also identify the stance that s/he will take). I will then select one of the topics and prepare a case. We will use round one merely as the selection phase. Round 2 will initiate the debate. If you have any queries, I will address them in the comments section. Good luck to my opponent!...

Was Calvin Coolige a good president?

1stLordofTheVenerability

Calvin Coolidge was a bad president. He was a bad president for the reasons that not only did he appoint a bad cabinet, but then he refused to do anything and let the cabinet hasten the coming of the Great Depression. He also was racist and sexist in a nation that prides itself on freedom and justice for all. The Ku Klux Klan claimed 5 million members in 1925, and marched to Washington, where it was received favorably. With abandon, it was murdering blacks, jews, catholics, and women who refuse...

History: Controversial Debate Challenge

Mirza

Greetings to my opponent; good luck and have fun! The premise of this debate is that my opponent will select the topic to be debated. I do have some stipulations: First of all, I wish that whatever the topic may be, it is relatively clean. Secondly, I would appreciate that this debate regard a controversial or debateable topic; it cannot be particularly pitched or one-sided (if it is, I hope the voters will acknowledge that fact)....

development programmes hardly benefit the poor

Most of the development programmes do not benefit the poor.Even if it does, it does in a skewed manner.Although a large amount of monetary resource is sanctioned but unfortunately it is only 15-17% of the development project's fund does have a real trickle down effect.The remaining 83-85% is usually eaten up by the intermediaries,systems,dishonest bureaucrats,even politicians.This is the tragedy of the development programmes in a developing country,particularly in Asian countries.Political as w...

Looking for a Challenge.

Logician

Greetings all, I'm looking for a challenge, and I ask only that the contender provide three reasonably controversial topics that s/he would be willing to debate. I would, of course, prefer that they be clean, but they don't necessarily have to be serious. In the first round, my opponent will introduce the three topics and I will select one in the second round. The second round will initiate our debate. As a note, my opponent does no...

George Patton was a Greater General than Bernard Law Montgomery

1stLordofTheVenerability
THE_OPINIONATOR

Greetings all, The premise of this debate is to find who was the greater military commander - the famed American General Patton, or the great English Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery. My opponent bears the burden of the proof, but I will put forth a few points as to why Patton isn't such a great commander, and then expound further in the consecutive rounds. Thanks for the debate, have fun, and good luck. Enjoy perusing the debate, all readers. 1. Patton was contemptible with his...

Evolution Vs. Anything else

1stLordofTheVenerability

This debate is informal, and I thank anyone who accepts it. The rule is, any arguments have to have scientific proof to back them up. Scripture is not scientific proof, and is irrelevent to this debate. I am obviously pro evolution, and look forward to any possible evidence to the alternative. Keep in mind, lack of evidence for one thing does not necessarily point to evidence of another. This is all I have for introductions, and I look forward to a good challenge....
