Computers are bad for our health!

MrAmazingDuck

Staring at a bright screen for hours can lead to eye fatigue or eye strain, headaches, blurred vision, burning, itching or tearing eyes, and temporary vision disorders. Fortunately, eye strain rarely results in a permanent condition and symptoms can be prevented or cured rather easily. Remedies Use a quality display of sufficient size. Avoid glare. Keep at least one arm length between your eyes and your display. Keep blinking. Follow the 20/20/20 rule, i.e. every 20 minutes, focus on an ob...

One can rationally support the claim that they are the only individual in existance with free will.

TheJuniorVarsityNovice

In this debate I will assert logically that out of all people who roam the earth, I am the sole individual who has free will; does this mean that I believe I am truely the only one? Well not exactly, but in essence, yes. I will show that because each individual lives in his or her own world, that they are logically restrained to accept certain ideas, especially when they experience a certain theoretical situation which logically demonstrates that others are not free but that you...

Females are better people than males.

Kozu

I'v made this debate impossible to accept, post in the comments if you would like to accept the debate.If there were to be only one gender on earth, which gender would be able to live together more peacefully?If one were to look at the nature of females overall, and how they interact with the rest of their community, I believe most would agree females are much better than males in this aspect. They're often more less-aggressive, more empathetic, and able to better co...

Christians Should Accept and Love Homosexual People

OneCoolKid
Ab_M

I am of the firm belief that Christians should be accepting and loving of people who are homosexual. Of the few instances in the Bible where homosexuality is mentioned (the majority of which are in the old testament), many of them are in extenuating circumstances, or could have an ambiguous translation. Firstly, in Genesis (19:5), it describes the homosexual rape of messengers of God in Sodom and Gomorrah. What the punishment for this act (the burning of the two cities) may be because of,...

Protestant's choice.

dsjpk5

Update: I thought this went rather well last time, so I thought I'd try it again. This debate should be impossible to accept. If you find a way to accept it, you automatically lose. You must believe the Bible is the inerrant word of God. I am looking for a Protestant who is interested in debating/discussing a specific Catholic doctrine. You pick the doctrine. And it must be an official Catholic doctrine. First one to comment will get a challenge request from me. 5 Rounds 10,000 ch...

If you don't believe in Heaven's existence, then why do you believe Earth's mysterious existence?

If you don't believe in Heaven's existence, then why do you believe in Earth's mysterious existence? Good day to all debate.org community members. My name is Colin, and I am a newcomer in this website and it would be an honor for me to smoke my contenders L.K.O so bring it on! Since I'm new, I made my opponent fairly random. A person who is a believer (or rather, some religions) would be in favor of the topic. So if your against this topic, like I said I long for a battle, so go on ahead a...
