Are girls better than boys?

izzyrose2004

I think girls are better than boys. Not because I am one, it's because..... well here we go. Girls are shown to be more compassionate, and kind than boys are. Yes, some boys are really nice, but that's only a small amount. Girls have better study habits than boys. In my class, the girls do better than the boys in everything. When you say that boys are stronger than girls, think again. There are plenty of girl weight-lifters, boxers, and athletes out there. Some of them are way better t...

Synthesis involves hitting Lithium or Boron atoms with high velocity protons and this does not yield economically useful amounts. Some helium is generated from alpha particles from radioactive de...

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction.

I believe that homeschooling is a good thing for kids. They get hands on experience with their parents. That would be good for kids with learning disabilities. Also, if your kid has bullying problems in school, they wouldn't have to go through that. Also, another point, kids wouldn't have to go through all of the stress of school. That is my argument....

Is it reasonable to question the theory of evolution?

Conspiracyrisk
JayShay

For this debate, I will not necessarily be trying to prove evolution is false, nor will I be trying to prove there is a god. For this debate, I will simply be trying to prove that it is reasonable to question the theory of evolution. The burden of proof is on me. My opponent will attempt to prove that my arguments are not reason enough to question evolution. Definitions: (Theory of) Evolution - the belief that the species of life on earth came about gradually over time through mutations with...
