God doesn't exist.

tyson
XSOLDIER

My argument is that God doesn't exist. I advise my opponent(preferably Christian) to present evidence for their beliefs. If they present enough sufficient evidence -- although highly unlikely -- I will gladly change my position. I also advise my opponent to go first. Thank you for debating. The rounds will not be as specific as other debates. It is just providing proof of God's existence....

Do animals have souls?

funnycn
Burls

I do not believe animals have souls. For the purpose of this debate, humans will not be included as an "animal". The purpose of this is to leave out pointless debating. You may post your argument in the first round, as I will. My argument goes as follows: The definition of "soul" is "The spiritual principle embodied in human beings, all rational and spiritual beings, or the universe" [http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/soul] and animals are not rational beings; they may be aware...

Government is necessary in a society

I believe that government exists because it is part of God's plan and will. (God being the God of Christianity). I believe it is necessary for any given society to function properly and that it pleases God when it follows the principles of the Bible....

Math Debate #1

RevL8ion
stylishBOY

The title's pretty self-explanatory. Because I'm a whole lot better at mathematics than debating, and there's really nothing math-related here, I'd like to start perhaps the first math debate in all of DDO. Here are the rules.Oh wait, first, I'd like to tell you to do something: Hold your tongue with your fingers and say "I like to math debate." If you know what I mean...anyway:The first round is always acceptance only...

Horse Riding is a Sport

Rottencat

I am an Eventer, someone who rides in Events competitively. Events include three main stages: Dressage, Stadium Jumping, and Cross-Country Jumping. I agree that this is a sport, as well as other competitive forms of riding. I do not, however, believe that trail riding and riding for pleasure are sports. In both of these, nothing is demanded from either horse or rider other than to move forward and occasionally turn. But in competitive events, both Western and English, the horse and rider complet...

Sex education should be mandatory in school. Students reported low levels of confidence to discuss sexuality or contraception with parents. There have been rising cases of teen pregnancies and it is important for teens to be aware of the costs and risks of carelessness. According to CDC,gov, "In 2012, a total of 305,388 babies were born to women aged 15"19 years [old]"" Due to the lack of sexual education, 65% of LGBTQ students have reported being harassed about sexual marks and even their sexua...

Education changes

moeez_malik
MonetaryOffset

The Education of America should change up. The reason I say this is because some courses in High school. Are pointless because they don't help us at all in the future such as Geometry, chemistry, statistics, Earth Science, Algebra, and more. We should not be required to take these type of classes unless we want to be a engineer, or a scientist. We should be taking classes we need to becomes whatever that is we want to be....
