Evolution is a fact

LoveRichardDawkins
Negotiate

The scientific evidence is undeniable. There is an enormous consensus that evolution is true. To disagree with this is to deny facts. People who oppose this have a world view that anything that disagrees with their holy book is wrong. They are delusional and cherry-pick false evidence. See the sense that is science. Vote pro...

Prostitution should be legalized

philosophicalnutcase
dloos121

There is no crime without a victim. That's the universal moral rule. And in the United States, our laws are made to comply with indisputable morality- not religious/cultural morality (if the Amish made law, we'd have quite a different dress code) not subjective morality (vegans would have banned meat). Prostitution, however, is not inherently wrong except religiously, culturally, or individually. If one is forced or coerced into it, of course it is a heinous crime but that's not sex work- that's...

The United States should construct a wall on the Southern Border.

I wish to argue in the affirmative that the U.S. should construct a wall on the Southern Border. I can leave Round 1 for acceptance, and the next three for arguments. I'm new to this site so please excuse any technical errors - I'm 100% willing to negotiate any changes to the parameters. ...

Are mainstream news networks bias

I believe they are biased and that there's nothing we can really do to change that. A large population can believe Fox over MSNBC when in reality they're all just propaganda machines for the political parties....

I don't know you, I only know of you. If I ever knew myself at all?

2far4u2CharlesDarwin
IAmCara

Free will; I don't know you. I only know of you. If I ever knew myself at all. Say what you mean and mean what you say is not mean it's meant from the heart. Sometimes we need to be cruel to be kind. Wisdom is to have the ability to have a structured conversation with the village idiot and accepting that tomorrow it's my turn to be the village idiot. Explaining complexities in the simplest manner is just like nuts and bolts. The hardest part is knowing how to put it all back together. It's...

I love myself, I think am grand, when I'm all alone I hold my hand. I think one day I'll marry me and try and raise a family. Let us debate about what this actually means. As there are many. Maybe we might just find a few more. dito...

The UK should remain a member of the Customs Union

LoveRichardDawkins
Can_o_worms

Brexit means Brexit and it will happen. This is not an attempt to curb the will of the people. However, the European Union is not equivalent to the single market and customs union. They are, undeniably, related but separate bodies. Therefore, considering leaving the EU only was on the ballot paper on June 23rd 2016, it is disingenuous to decide on behalf of the people that they must have also meant leaving the single market and customs union. Given that the margin of the vote was only very small...
