If Logical-Master answers all of his opponent's questions, he probably won't contradict himself

Logical-Master

Rules: 1. PRO must answer all of CON's questions. 2. If PRO contradicts himself, then PRO loses. Otherwise, PRO wins. 3. CON is only allowed to ask a maximum of ten questions in each round other than round 4. 4. Violation of the rules will result in an automatic loss in terms of the individual who violated any one of them. I reserve the right to dispute the contender's rendering of the topic should I feel it doesn't meet the ideas of what the debate is intended for. ....

GodSand's "proof" of God is not logically valid

Kleptin
GodSands

In an effort to eliminate unnecessary and useless squabble over a very trivial fact, I have decided to make this into a debate. I would prefer that GodSands take this debate, but have decided to make it public to some extent as well, since the topic is familiar to many. Anyone who has had Philosophy knows that Ontological proofs revolving around the usage of the term "exist", also knows that the proof seems to be completely true. In other words, it is tautological. Tautologies usually occ...

Nobody should be above the law

brian_eggleston

Isn't that already the case? Well, in America (where I know most Debate.Org members live) that may well be the current situation but here in England the Queen can do whatever she likes with absolute impunity. For example, say the Queen goes into a charity shop and slyly conceals a secondhand Mills and Boon novel under her crown and walks out, but the security guards surround her as she leaves and they wrestle her to the ground, she can turn round to them and say: "Unhand me this instance y...

French being taught in Canada is unnessicary if only taken untill grade 9

Rangesjk

I thank my opponent in advance for accepting this. This is my first debate and I would like to hear another persons point of view. In Canda french has to be taught untill grade 9, then its optional if you want to continue. Learning a new language is great and I would love to do so but in high school (grade 9) it is treated rather as a class simply nessicary to pass to graduate. The attitude french teachers and students have is disencouraging me to memorize numerous verb conjigations, spel...

Border Fence

Tatarize
Kleptin

Each year, several hundred people die attempting to cross the U.S. Mexico border. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigrant_deaths_along_the_U.S.-Mexico_border A border fence would, on top of preventing illegal immigration, prevent these deaths from occurring. We need to control and document those who enter this country. Allowing people to walk across and wander in the desert for a few days before dying of dehydration is not fulfilling the promise of America. Nor is allowing somebody from anothe...

Resolved: The user known as s0m31john ought to seriously consider reading the Naruto manga.

Logical-Master

Greetings. The resolution is exactly as it says. I won't begin arguing until the second round since it hasn't yet occurred to me how I actually wish to argue this. My opponent is free to begin the debate with his first round or wait for me to begin in round 2. It matters little to me. In addition, CON is more than free to define the resolution, but I reserve to the right to argue against his interpretation should I feel that it does not match the intentions of this debate (this is assuming he...

Public Schools in Britain Shouldn't be part of a Certain Religion

fanatapan
Logical-Master

I think that public schools in UK shouldn't follow a religion. I think this for the following reasons: • It deters parents from sending their children to a public school. • Children are less likely to want to voice their views about their religion. • Children won't have an opportunity to form their own opinion about religion etc. Dear opponent: Please make valid points, not silly, irrelevant ones....
