Chinese people who eat dogs have the right to do so

smithy1
mightbenihilism

In the United States, dogs are viewed as family and have a special role in many lives. Most people would find the idea of consuming a dog (as one would eat cow or chicken) repugnant. In certain parts of China, people buy dogs to eat (let me be clear that I am not generalizing this act to all Chinese people, only a small minority eat dogs and it is frowned upon for the most part). My argument is that they have the right to do so. It is prima facie morally permissible to eat dogs. Obviously, if a...

Unless God can find the square root of a negative number, he is just as imaginary as the answer.

Why the United States Needs To Be Invaded, Lose A War -

QueenAnnesRevenge
DarthVitiosus

This debate is wether or not the U.S. needs to be invaded. I, the Pro/For, argue in shirt, the U.S. needs to be invaded, and/or lose a war because of it's tyrannical and dictating rule over most of the rest of the world unable to protect themselves from the U.S. - The problem is the U.S., in that that are imposing their ideology and dictating ways on other cultures that cannot stay true to their own personal beliefs and ways of living because of big brother's "power" hold over them. - Th...

The Atheists' God of Causation (by default) is Mathematical Probability

kebomystic
Imperfiect

Few atheists would be stupid enough to consider that there was no causation for the universe we see. So, what is the causation that the atheist mind refers to when it tries to reconcile this internally? Am I right in thinking the atheist mind must settle on the last god off the rank (by default), the 'God of Probability'?...

Access to Condoms and other contraceptives leads to promiscuity and other irresponsible behaviors.

Lulu18

I am of the view that access to condoms and other contraceptives leads to promiscuity and other irresponsible behaviors because for example, if a school decides to give out condoms to its students then that would give the students the "okay" to go ahead and involve themselves in sexual activities. The students will take this as an opportunity to lose their virginity for those who are still pure and to continue what they have already started for those who already knows what it feels like. Providi...

Should western nations (including the United States) legalize gay marriage?

SeanNation
RainbowDash52

Hi everyone, this is my first debate on debate.org. Have patience! With that stated, here I go! Whether you think it's a choice or not, whether you approve of homosexuality or not, homosexuality exists. Gay people exist. Gay couples and relationships exist. You can choose to ignore them, but they will continue to have sex and partnerships. If you believe it is a choice, then as long as humans retain free will, there will always be people who choose to be gay, even in the most intolerant of...
