So not true

thedancingbanana

School is not ment for praying! Think about it! It is just plain wrong if you're teaching a student a way to pray. This is a violation to the amendment #1. There is a freedom of religion. It is cruel for someone to harrass a poor kid who doesn't want to pray. There choice, not yours....

Resolved: Targeted killing is a morally permissible foreign policy tool.

Contention 1: Osama Bin Laden While this is a well known fact in the United States, it still needs to pointed out and addressed that on May 1, 2011 U.S. Navy SEAL team six completed a mission of assassinating Osama Bin Laden, one of the most well known terrorists to the average U.S. citizen. Criteria 1: Can you prove anything? Everyone has told their fair share of jokes, including me. They are usually funny if they are worth sharing, but when telling this joke I did not give credit to anyon...

bossyburrito

I'll post a riddle in this round. Con gets one guess. I reveal the answer in round two. If Con gets it, he gets all points. If he doesn't, I get all points. Riddle: There are two villages, village A and village B. Village A contains only liars, they ALWAYS lie. Village B contains only people who tell the truth. There is a large forest between the two villages and you are lost in it, but then you see a person who could be from EITHER village A or B.You get to ask him only one question. You...

The Ancient Astronaut Theory is Correct

ishallannoyyo

Before I even begin, I would like to point out that I do not ACTUALLY believe the ancient astronaut theory. However, I think that this would be a fun debate to try out. The BOP will be on me for this debate to prove that what has been dismissed as "coincidences" or "human intelligence" is actually artifacts and knowledge given to us by aliens. The opposition will only have a BOD.R1 AcceptanceR2 -3 ArgumentsR4 LESS THAN 1000 CHARACTER conclusion, no new ar...

Debate.org should promote debtors to insult each other.

david.palbino

Insulting each other in a moderate way was always at the core of a debate. Most of viva voice debates I attend as soon as my opposition realize they can't win the argument in a clean way turn into a dirty way, and they declare me a stupid guy which is not worth listening. Declaring your opposition stupid is part or the art of debating, and we should be able to do it online as well. There are no rule in this debate, but to pres...

Welfare is an applicable stance for a Libertarian

Khaos_Mage

This debate is for the first round of the beginners tournament. Definitions: Welfare: government aid given to certain people meeting certain criteria Applicable Stance: not contradictory to other views Libertarian: one who identifies maximizing liberty as the main factor in government's role and actions. THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY A MEMBER OF THE LIBERTARIAN PARTY, so no party platform arguments are allowed. The resolution is self-explanitory. As a self-proclaimed libertarian, I beli...

Humans are the main cause of global warming

jh1234l

The CON must prove humans do not play a significant role in global warming. I recommend a experienced debater that opposes global warming to debate with me. EDIT: Per Ron-Paul's request, the resolution is changed and the voting period is now 1 month. My Starting Arguments: Yes, the Earth is warming. Since the early 20th century, Earth's mean surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 "C (1.4 "F), with about two-thirds of the increase occurring since 1980.[1] Is it caused mainly...
