Evolution: Pick One

WriterDave
ScottyDouglas

ScottyDouglas recently published a post in the Religion forum regarding evolution and the flood. The following are the key propositions from that post, which I have copied and pasted here (spelling errors and all):(1) A formerly wide spread of these (flood) myths can make one think that the actuality of the flood can be true. (2) The geological evidences from the Biblical Flood are in agreement with geological facts seen in the field.(3) The d...

Anthropogenic Global Warming Denial

WriterDave

This is an exhibition debate. Do not vote on this debate.The reality of anthropogenic global warming stands in opposition with the notions of un- or under-restricted capitalism and industrial freedoms, a core component of right-wing and strict libertarian ideology. This is reflected in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary: except for Huntsman, all Iowa Caucus candidates deny AGW, or at least express skepticism about it. (Romney accepted AGW in June of...

WriterDave Will Melt Down

WriterDave

Innomen predicted, when I returned to DDO, that "It's just a matter of time until the next melt down." Such open-ended predictions are win-win for those who make them; if not proven, they are forgotten, and if proven, the predictor is hailed as a prophet. So this is a way of holding Innomen accountable for his prediction in a manner consistent with the primary dispute mechanism on this website -- as well as holding me accountable for my behavior.Full Re...

All in all, I'm just another brick in the wall

This is a "fun" debate. My opponent will have the burden of proving the resolution, but he can decide what is meant by it. Excluding this post, all posts on both sides must consist solely of Pink Floyd lyrics. Each lyric should be attributed by song title. Example: "Look around, choose your own ground." (Breathe)...

We should have the right to secede from the United States

ConnorR
WriterDave

I believe that every state has the constitutional right to secede from the corrupt union that is America. America has lost its moral value and so such deserves to be disolved and the 50 states become their own political entities, or join with other states to form a nation....

Resolved: Economic freedom should be a higher priority than economic equality.

billbuckley
WriterDave

This debate will focus strictly on economic freedom vs economic equality. To avoid confusion, we will presume that both scenarios are to take place in a politically free society. Round 1) There is undoubtedly a connection between political freedom and economic freedom. If a society places equality above freedom, then it must infringe upon the liberties of individuals. For one man to be equal to another man, only two options exist. One is to reduce the wealth of the richer man through coercive...

1984 vs The Hunger Games

Since the "topic" section didn't give me enough room to write the full proposition. The topic for this debate is...drum roll please....did anyone just bang on their desk? I hope so...The society presented in George Orwell's novel 1984, would be more likely to arise than the society presented in The Hunger Games. I look forward to a terrific debate against whomever my opponent is....

Same-sex marriage should be recognized in the U.S.

BURDEN OF PROOF Good question When it comes to the burden of proof, I think the gay marriage advocate should have majority of the burden since you are the ones who want to change the definition and purpose of marriage and/or claim that this is a civil rights issue. Therefore, you should go first. However, I still have some burden in regards to public policy, so I will just explain what Civil marriage is and the purpose of it and how gay marriage interferes with this (if necessary) I...
