Is Dance a Sport

Jcroupe

With the Rome Statute as its founding document, the court is intended to discourage and punish war criminals and genocidaires. Although the United States originally refused to sign the statute over sovereignty concerns, the Bush administration eventually ratified it. In this debate, I will be arguing that the US should not recognize the legitimacy nor authority of the ICC. My opp...

The marijuana, evolution, gay marriage debate take 2

Finalfan

I have been involved with 15 debates regarding these subjects. The reason I'm compelled to debate these topics is that I just don't get it... At all!!!! Marijuana should be legal, evolution should be recognized as the current prevailing predictive model, and homosexuals are at the mercy of mass homophobia!

Robotoforgoto4
Prof.Asteroid

The Chicken came before the egg. Whichever reason you believe in, argue against that one: 1. Creationism- When God created the earth, he said something and it was created.

So in summary, chickens came then eggs. 2. Big Bang- The Big Bang Theory is the theory that nothing came into something with an explosion. So there was a *bang*...
