Advocating the legal protection of human embyos and fetuses, especially by favoring the outlawing of abortion on the ground that it is the taking of a human life. Read more: http://www.answers.com/topic/pro-life#ixzz1FJyyBYec The pro-life agenda suggests that the way to save lives (at least the lives of the fetus) is to out-law abortion. I disagree. To outlaw abortion would not only NOT decrease the numbers...

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...

We do not need the State to help us live our lives.

Crevaux
Awesome-Sauce

Since this is a pretty long subject, I don't want to spend too much time talking about the structure of the debate and I would like to start it right away. As a summary, I begin by posting my first argument and my opponent will answer right away. To define the State, I am talking about the legalized monopoly that is currently and conventionally divided into three branches: the executive, the legislative, and the judiciary. The State is the land monopoly that controls more or less the individu...

In such a modern society, why do we still have this "eye for an eye" mentality? We've come along way since Himmurabi's code and anger infused revenge. Why are we sending the message "Okay, you killed one of us, now we must kill you"? First Round: Acceptence. :)...
