Why do people fight if someone is L, G, B or T. It does not matter.

The world is a big place and if people of the same sex get engaged the world is neither going to care nor end. Let people do what they want, the world is a big place for you to get mad over something this stupid (And I"m not homosexual or whatever, I"m straight but seeing people kill each other over this is really stupid) And I would like to have a religious Con in this debate (If possible)....

Illegal aliens should not be given American citizenship at all

Bremners
Sunsummer7

Hillary Clinton said that if she wins the presidency, illegal aliens who are not violent criminals will be given a pathway to citizenship. I believe that giving illegal aliens citizenship, violent or not, will harm United States and diminish its immigration laws. Instead deportation for all illegal aliens (if not all, at least half) should be considered. 1) lannan13 cannot join. Love you bud but I wanna debate this with another user 2) Use citations 3) Follow this structure: ROUND 2: Op...

Vaccines cause autism.

(Disclaimer: Based on my name, I'm am a Pro-Vaccinate. Just for clarification, I sided with the Affirmative because these arguments are what I think are the strongest arguments against vaccines and I wanted to do an experiment to strengthen what I'm actually siding with) According to the scientific consensus, many peer reviewed studies have found no correlation between vaccines and autism.

Maturity and physical and online presence of youth in relation to an adult or young adult.

jedijwk

I believe that youth should be taken more seriously, even when presented with logic and proof of intelligence some adults still claim to be more intelligent and mature than youth. I argue that in some cases(nowadays probably half or more) of the times when children are belittled and told they are not on the same level as adults mentally is absurd, just because they are youth doesn't mean they should be told they can't have the same mental capacity as an adult....

Should Australia increase the amount of asylum seekers accepted into the country?

erin123456

Illegal immigrants should be dealt with first before dealing with asylum seekers. According to an immigration department report, over 50,000 illegal immigrants were recorded. The government needed more resources to track these people down, said Angela Chan, the head of the Immigration Institute of Australia. Therefore, this proves that this area of immigration is an area that needs immediate work, and seeing as there is this gap in the immigration system, there is the likely factor of terrorists...

The Earth is spherical and the Flat Earth hypothesis is false

Zaephou
humperdink

It is a widely accepted fact that the Earth, and all planetary objects are spherical (even though they may not be perfect spheres), and yet Flat Earth believers insist that the Earth is a flat cuboid travelling through space with a Sun and moon with a diameter of 32 km above it and provides absolutely no evidence for their ridiculous claims while disregarding the countless amounts of evidence we have for a spherical Earth as government lies. Flat Earth believers simply reject evidence such as...
