This debate is open to anyone who may want to argue the point that religion is beneficial to society. Thank You in advance to whoever may accept this debate and may the best one win....

My version of capital punishment should be legal

JBphilo

I believe that the best form of capital punishment is to, once a year, randomly select an individual that is guilty beyond reasonable doubt and rip them apart using a rack and broadcast this on national television. This individual has to be guilty of murder or anything worse than murder to have the possibility of being chosen. I believe this is better than conventional capital punishment for numerous reasons and should become law. Definition of capital punishment: the death penalty for cri...

A smarter way to communicate with your toddler is thru sign

Reshmi29

A child should be taught baby sign language in order to increase their motor and auditory skills at young age. Kids that have been taught baby sign seem to have better motor and auditory skills then those kids who don't know how to sign. Signing is a great way to communicate with your child and teach them a way to talk to you with their hands while they learn to talk. Signing has been shown to decrease...

The Reverse Modal Ontological Argument Refutes God

Envisage

Details:I am playing devil's advocate in this debate - since my position is that neither argument actually can even hope to be demonstrated to be sound. Leave a message if you wish to accept.
