Beauty and the Beast

sidewinder

I'll be arguing that the Beauty and the Beast is about how society ostrasizes those who do not fit social norms. My opponent will be arguing that the beauty in the Beast does not carry such morals or carries a different moral aka stockholm syndrome and many other different interpretations. The Burden of proof will be on Pro first round is for acceptance...

The Oscars should create a category called 'Best Blockbuster'

imabench

If you are reading this, chances are that the Oscars took place about a few days ago now. Those who watched the Oscars probably noticed that there was an overwhelming LACK of awards nominations for movies that were considered 'Blockbusters', much like EVERY year, with 'American Sniper' alone grossing more in the box office than all other 'Best Picture' nominee's combined, yet American Sniper at $500 Million in income doesn't even crack the top 10 of the highest grossing films of 2014<...

The drinking age in Australia should be raised to 21 years old

lizziepenson

I believe that the drinking age should be raised to 21 because people below that age don't make great decisions under the influence. The amount of deaths caused by alcohol abuse is 15 people a day! On average that is 5,554 people in a year! And the amount of admissions to a hospital for alcohol related injuries in 2010 is 157,132 in one whole year. People make bad choices when under the influence and most of these people are 18 years or older. If the drinking age in Australia was raised to 21 th...

should cigarretes be legally banned?

I believe that there shouldn't be a law legally banning smoking and buying cigarettes. This is because although there are many health risks to smoking, you should be able to choose what you put in your own body. Also cigarretes are highly taxed by the government making it essential to our growing economy in the U.S....

The Bible is the most reliable resource we have to explain our origin.

Creationists are often discriminated by Atheist for being biased towards Christianity. Well I argue that the argument stated by Atheist is not viable. Evolutionists are biased towards Naturalism and human reasoning. The Evolutionists are relying too much on Darwin's theory of evolution and/or the theory of the big bang, which is what I contradict. The definition of theory is simply an unproven idea to attempt to prove a point. The big bang does not have enough evidence to prove itself, in fact,...

LogicalVoice

I'M A CON MEANING I WILL PROVE THAT THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD before i begin with the arguments i like to define mightier as greater or more/can do more things ARGUMENTS: 1) that pen can do much more things than the sword which main purpose or usage is at a war or strength wise 2) even if you take out violence it will not affect the growth and development of a specific place or a country on contrary it helps it. 3) that pen saves more lives than the sword because it creates peace t...
