Clean/Renewable Energy is the ideal source of energy (Over fossil fuels)

JasonBran
BBKelKel

Okay, first, I will start off by stating my arguments, and introduce my topic. I believe renewable energy is the ideal source of energy for the future for many reasons 1. Renewable energy will never run out As fossil fuels do run out, as they are non-renewable, renewable energy will not. They come in natural forms such as sun and wind which are things that will never run out. 2. Fossil fuels pollute earth and melt polar ice caps As shown in numerous studies, the use of fossil fuels h...

Has God moved onto a new canvas ?

Jonnyad
harrytruman

I have never practised a religion, have sometimes professed to be atheist. Recently, and I have sought to learn the merits of following various religious beliefs in an effort to understand the very complex human interactions we are currently experiencing globally. I cannot help to recognise that civilisations which according to most religious texts, such as ours, which have so blatantly disgraced themselves in the face of God or Gods have been smote to the Nth degree. Yet no Divine intervent...

Should Gun Control Be put in Place?

Dabate101
SampleDebater

The United States has 88.8 guns per 100 people, or about 270,000,000 guns, which is the highest total and per capita number in the world. 22% of Americans own one or more guns (35% of men and 12% of women). America's pervasive gun culture stems in part from its colonial history, revolutionary roots, frontier expansion, and the Second Amendment, which states: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be inf...
