DebateIsTheEssenceOfLife

Global warming is threatening our life, natural environment and modern civilization these days. Many countries and communities of the world are seriously tackling in developing new energy sources like solar, wind and atomic energies. However, I believe their efforts and endeavours are facing serious and difficult problems to promote for the introduction of new alternative energy sources replacing with fossile energies. I hope someone who is interested in this problem accept this debate....

Black women in America don't try to look white. American white women try to look black.

Con has to prove that black women cosmetically do try to look white women. Con also has to prove that white women cosmetically DON'T try to look like black women. Cosmetically meaning physically. This isn't a debate on how anyone acts, only on how they look. Both Pro and Con are not implying that all black women or all white women act the same way. This should be an interesting and possibly humorous debate. Good luck to the Con. First round is acceptance, second is argument, third is rebuttal...

My high school current events class discussed several questions and this question seem to split the classroom in half. I think there is a good reason to keep trying to reduce water pollution. Bring it on....

Gay Marriage Should be Legalized in the UK

Why not? Who does legalizing gay marriage negatively affect? The only people it affects are gay couples who want to get married and it affects them in a positive way; therefore there is no reason why it shouldn't be legalized....

Abortion

Hey I'd just like to say before I start that I'm a beginner, only 14 so please go easy on me :P But I must confess I am pretty good at arguing so I discovered this site and decided to give it a try. I mean, why not? Abortion : the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. (according to the dictionary). Pt1) Abortion is murder Picture a young girl named Lily. Imagine her holding out a gun and murdering someone. This was done...

The first round will simply be for acceptance, although I do have a few requirements before the debate starts. -Lincoln-Douglas format: Value/Criterion, All contentions must be tied back to value. -Definitions -Good grammar (please.) -Statistics I will allow my opponent to use the bible as a source. This is a topic I feel strongly about, so unless you are serious about this debate, do not accept. I wish my opponent the best of luck....

The drinking age should be lowered to 18 (redone)

pabeltrani
bekd80

In this debate, I will argue that the legal drinking age for the United States should be lowered to 18, while the Con will debate that it should state at 21. Due to problems with the previous debate, this will be a redo of the original. Round 1 will be dedicated to the acceptance of the debate, with the standard debate following that. I wish the Con best of luck for the debate!...
