GOP
Geogeer

Greetings, everyone. Pro will be arguing that this is a biblically sound doctrine. Since I am Con, I will do the opposite. Rules: 1. You must be a Catholic. No devil's advocates. 2. Your arguments must be based on the 66 books of the Bible that both Protestants and Catholics agree upon (1). Neither the seven books (the Apocrypha/Deuterocanon) that Catholics and Protestants do not agree upon, nor any other religious writings are valid sources for this debate. 3. No trolling or pro...

Should cannabis be legalized?

ludwiglindau
debatability

I do not think cannabis should be legalized in any way except for medical reasons. Cannabis is first of all a drug, allow using cannabis would send out wrong signals which could make people think that it's not wrong testing other drugs to, like heroin and cocaine. Think of it, "the state has legalized" a "drug". Then would some people think that testing other drugs is ok to. The drug do also contain the substance Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This substance can give bioeffects like euphoria,...

the standard of indian sports would be higher without internal politics

harshilsood
Lawyer_Goblin

indian sports councils are all infested with favouritsm in selection( wether in the the playing squads or for the captaincy) and groupism amongst players. The sense of playing as a team has totally been discarded by the players especially the ones who are said to be the seniors. they have developed what people are now calling a miniature model of the indian scenario where they are grouping theselves on any basis one can think of. moreover the major posts in the sports councils are also also urg...

The Illuminati no longer exists, and the rumours about the Illuminati are false.

SirMaximus
Wylted

At Wylted's request, I challenge him to this debate. (NOTE: I already debated this against Burningsnow. As of writing, the debate with Burningsnow is in the voting period.) (The following text is taken almost verbatim from my old debate. I may or may not paraphrase more loosely as the rounds go on, depending on how this goes.) Conspiracy theorists often assert that the Illuminati is evil, anti-Christian, trying to hide their symbol(s) in pop culture today, controls everyone in pop culture...

Drug Use in the US Should be Fully Legalized

Siege
Mr.Lincoln

I argue that drug use in the US should be fully legalized, legalizing all forms of drugs, not simply marijuana. I have the burden of proof to convince voters that fully legalizing all drugs makes logical sense.First round is acceptance, 5th round will be closing statements with no new arguments or rebuttals brought forward. ...
