My last few attempts to debate this subject were taken on by non-serious debaters, so I'd like to try this again with a minimum 15 debate requirement. If you would like to debate this and do not meet the requirement, please let me know.Many arguments against the legality of gay marriage include the sanctity of the family. According to social conservatives, gay people are deranged, perverted or otherwise unfit to provide a safe, functional and/or loving family environment in whic...

The United States military should be significantly reduced in size and scope.

Danielle

Greetings and thank you in advance to my opponent for accepting this debate. It is my contention that the U.S. military should be substantially reduced in size and scope. This includes the number of personnel, goals and overall military spending. The military shall refer to every branch of the armed forces, and a significant reduction would equal about a 1/3 cut in funding. The U.S. military budget is $756.4 billion for FY 2015. As such, I will be arguing that it should be around $500 billio...

Rap Battle

Danielle
Mikal

Many thanks in advance to Mikal for this challenge. This will be a rap battle of 3 rounds each. I will start in Round 2, and allow Mikal to use R1 for introductions and to set the terms. I am prepared to do a traditional diss rap battle, or rap on particular subjects/topics for Con to specify in R1 - I'll leave it up to him. The winner should be determined by considering the battle in its entirety. Lyrical eloquence, witticisms, articulation, disses and overall presentation...

Euthanasia

Danielle
lannan13

Euthanasia refers to the practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering. While it is an issue of law for certain, I labeled this debate into the Philosophical category. Euthanasia, sometimes called "mercy killing" or referred to as assisted suicide has both ethical and legal ramifications. I will be arguing on behalf of the law embracing euthanasia as a viable legal option for...

Libertarianism

Cold-Mind

Accept only if you really are libertarian.Scenario is following: I don't know what libertarianism is (I may check up about it during the debate); My opponent is libertarian, and he is trying to convice me to become one too. I will be trying to refute my opponent's arguments, furthermore, I may try to convice my opponent that he should not be libertarian.Voting: If neither debater surrenders, debate will remain tied (no one will vote)....

NSA Surveillance

Danielle
YYW

I dislike instigating debates from the Con position, but I wasn't entirely sure how to frame the resolution. My opponent, should he accept, has agreed to debate this issue from either side. I will be standing in opposition to the extent of NSA Surveillance. A brief overview: The NSA has the capability to collect massive amounts of data on traffic over switched phone networks and the internet. Recently they gained the ability to capture and store data en masse, and retain...

Philosophy and the humanities are underrated in education.

Danielle
RoyLatham

I would like to thank my esteemed opponent in advance for accepting this debate. I look forward to what I hope will be a very thought provoking and insightful discussion :) For all intents and purposes, I believe the resolution is pretty straight-forward. By underrated, I will be arguing that increasing the focus in humanities and/or philosophy in education, particularly higher education, would be beneficial to society. I will contend that there is an increasing problematic...
