Students going barefoot to school as a school rule would a good idea.

Kohaku

This debate is about should schools in the United States (grades K-12) have their students go barefoot and not allowing having any students to have any footwear on school campus would be a helpful tactic for student's education (not including swimming classes or sports activities). For an example, students can't wear any footwear like shoes, socks, and sandals on campus for any reason so a student must go barefoot at the start of the school hours until the end of school hours, even if it rains o...

Resolved: In a fight without prior preparation, Batman would defeat Spider-Man.

CHEIF_BEAST

If Batman and Spider-Man were to fight, Spider-Man would beat the living daylights out of Batman. First, Spider-Man has superhuman abilities. Batman is an Olympic level human in terms of physical attributes. Clearly, Spider-Man is superior in this regard. Second, Spider-Man is a worthy adversary in terms of intellect. Whereas Batman abuses his billions of dollars to buy fancy gadgets, Spider-Man actually creates his sophisticated devices (while using an extremely limited amount of resource...

The Electoral College is Misrepresentative

ReganFan

The electoral college in this country (America) is unfair. It is possible to receive the most number of votes but not win the election. Popular vote should be the deciding factor in determining who is elected President. Electoral College: System which each state is given a certain number of electors based on the population of said state....

This is the LD topic and I would like to do an LD style debate. Before I begin I would like to offer the following definitions. According to Merriam Webster's Dictionary justify is to prove or show to be just, right or reasonable. Just is to be in conformity with what is morally upright or good. According to Random House Unabridged Dictionary compulsory is to be required; mandatory. Public health, according to medterms.com, is medicine that is concerned with the health of the community as a w...

" If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's a duck"

We have all heard the phrase: " If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's a duck" If i see what I believe to be a "duck" based on the above phrase, I reserve the right and I am entitled to the right to believe it is a "duck" at first glance. If what I see at first glance appears to be a "duck", the duck must prove to me and everyone else that it is not a "duck", otherwise I and everyone else can treat it like a duck. "Duck" defined for purposes of this debate:...

at public school cafeteria's don't know what religion some of the kids are (most kid's that go to public school are most likely to be catholic or Jewish) so why don't they make food for every one to eat? most parents my not have food in they house that the time because they have not ran out to the supper market to get food of their following religion such as Jewish kosher foods. so why don't they make foods that every kid can eat and not have to worry if it follows their diet of they religion th...

Military Conscription is Unjust.

Danielle

I. INTRODUCTION I noticed that debate challenges have been pretty scarce lately, so I decided to post one of my own. This will be a three-round debate, during which I will spend the first round making any necessary clarifications, and using Rounds 2 and 3 to make and conclude my arguments. I acknowledge that as Pro (and more importantly, as the instigator) I have the burden of proof. Thus I ask that my future opponent utilize R1 to either accept or refute my clarifications; I will make my ope...

There are situations conceivable when torture can be justified.

Freeman

Imagine that you have been carted off against your will to some dank and sadistic dungeon. Upon arriving you are immediately forced to confront an ethical dilemma. Your captors tell you that you must torture an innocent man that now sits in front of you for 5 minutes. If you fail to comply with this request they will torture the man anyway and 100 other innocent people. And not only will they torture these innocent people they will torture them all to the point of death. So, now you must make a...

Everything Stated In the Bible Should Be Taken Literally

rawrxqueen

Every scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) Many good people build their case against homosexuality almost entirely on the Bible. However, these people fail to take the rest of the bible as seriously or as literally as they do with this issue. When it comes to faith, you cannot pick and choose. Either you take the...
