Resolved: There were no time travel plot holes in any of the three "Back to the Future" films.

Logical-Master

The first time I did this debate, I got trolled. Lets hope it doesn't happen again. (SKIP THE FIRST PARAGRAPH IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ THE BACKGROUNG INFO) 1985. It was a a well-renowned year for many. However, it was also a successful year for the entertainment industry as it was the year "Back to the Future" had made its debut. Now this wasn't the first time time travel had been utilized in a film, but it was certainly the first time a "time-travel" plot had produced a block buster. The...

Yraelz

On another debate, debate.org member Yraelz makes the pronouncement, "Infanticide should be encouraged in all situations. Infants should not have the rights until 3 years of age." Source: http://www.debate.org/debates/infants-born-alive-by-accident-during-partial-birth-should-be-killed/1/ Provided (s)he accepts the debate, I would like for Yraelz to present the reason why this should be lawfully and morally encouraged in all situations, and why infants should not have rights until the...

Resolved: The USFG should substantially increase alternative energy incentives in the US.

Johnicle

This is a policy debate with Inherency, Harms, Plan, Solvency, Disadvantages, Topicality's, Counter-Plans, and the works. Evidence is necessary to prove points that need it. Since I can't begin without an affirmative case, I will wait for my opponents case before beginning. The topic is the 2008-2009 NFL Policy debate topic: Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase alternative energy incentives in the United States. Thanks and good luck to my challenger...

Paying to be a debate.org member is a fundamentally good idea.

whitesoxfan450

No, it's not currency I speak of, nor is it anything tangible which you must give up. My proposal is simple, I am advocating a payment of 1 instigated debate per month. This means that to keep a membership on this website you must instigate at least one debate per month. I feel this would be overall advantageous....

Yraelz

The only rule regarding this debate is that a sense of humour is required Obesity = a condition in which the natural energy reserve, stored in the fatty tissue of humans and other mammals, exceeds healthy limits. It is commonly defined as a body mass index (weight divided by height squared) of 30 kg/m2 or higher. Obesity is a growing concern (pun not intended). I have a few suggestions on how to solve this problem, if you disagree, well you know what to do! 1) The overweight people are...

Religious Symbols Ought to be Removed From Public Places

Darth_Grievous_42

This is the topic I was suppose to be debating in the tournament, however, my opponent has yet to accept, so I'll simply debate it for fun. As Pro, I will be defending that religious symbols ought to be removed from public places, thus the polar opposite of my stance that my opponent will have to defend is that religious symbols ought NOT to be removed from public places. I want to make it perfectly clear that I am in no way personally for nor against my stance, I am simply debating for it. A...

DADT should be repealed in favor of allowing gay service members to serve openly.

Yraelz
gahbage

A military debate that I haven't done for quite some time. DADT is a flawed policy, not only does it fail in practical use but it also fails the purpose that is was created for. Whats more, it hurts our country and our national security far more than it could ever help. Thus I stand in firm affirmation of the topic: DADT should be repealed in favor of allowing gay service members to serve openly....
