Resolved: Abortion is morally impermissible

unitedandy

IntroductionI want to thank Con for agreeing to participate in this debate. He is an excellent advocate of the Pro-Choice position, so hopefully we can have a worthwhile exchange. In this first round, I will put forward an affirmative argument that abortion is impermissible.

Singing for fun

philochristos

I challenge thee to a singing duel! We each must sing three songs, one song per round. Round 1 is for acceptance, parameters, and well-wishes. The rest of the rounds are for posting videos of us singing. Instrumentation is allowed as long as it doesn't drown out your voice, but no dubbing over your own voice, no multi-tracking, and no cloning yourself.Voters: Since songs require artistic license, no points should be given or taken for spelling and g...

In defense of history's worst: Osama Bin Laden is innocent (Part 1)

simpleguy

Having been inspired by Wylted's "In Defense of Evil" series I decided to start my own. Definitions:Innocent: not guilty of a crime or other wrong act [1]The burden of proof in this debate is on Con to show that Osama Bin Laden was guilty of any crimes he was charged with, the standard of proof being beyond reasonable doubt. If you don't qualify for this debate leave a comment and I'll consider you.

Cats make better pets than dogs.

I will make the argument that cats make better pets than dogs. Cats are more self-reliant and independent. They know how to bathe and can have their own alone time while still showing you affection when they want to. I would argue that they are not as needy and emotionally dependent as dogs. They are less time-consuming than dogs who need greater care by walking them outside, and who need constant attention. Cats are cleaner and can even be trained to use the toilet http://www.wikihow.com/Toi...

Vote-Bombing Contest!

STALIN

You know what, nevermind. I'm doing the challenge. I'm just unsure because so many people hate me. Lets test that hate. Simple. Just accept. Then you have to try and get as many people to vote-bomb for you as you can and I have to do the same. Whoever gets more votes within 10 days wins the debate. Round 1 is for acceptance and round 2 is for any additional questions. I won't respond as quickly in order to give people time to see the debate. I think I will lose though......
