Unless God can find the square root of a negative number, he is just as imaginary as the answer.

Should Mark Schauer be Michigan's next governor?

Rick Snyder hasn't been great for Michigan for a number of reasons. First, during his tenure as governor, he has cut roughly a billion dollars to the state education budget. As a result, many public schools closed and students had to attend another school. I attend a public high school in Michigan and just last year the two high schools in my district merged because the state cut spending for each student. Teachers were fired and the avg. class size increased significantly. Also, Snyder a...

Is there any proof of God?

I am very atheist. In this debate I am looking for the reasons why god is so believable. To me it seems like the theists just read a book and now they believe every word. I think god would be nice to believe in but I don't see ANY legitimate evidence. It would be nice if some theists can support their religion with good proof and not quotes from an unreliable source. I want a nice and mature discussion and not like the ones on youtube :D...

Access to Condoms and other contraceptives leads to promiscuity and other irresponsible behaviors.

I am of the view that access to condoms and other contraceptives leads to promiscuity and other irresponsible behaviors because for example, if a school decides to give out condoms to its students then that would give the students the "okay" to go ahead and involve themselves in sexual activities. The students will take this as an opportunity to lose their virginity for those who are still pure and to continue what they have already started for those who already knows what it feels like. Providi...

Islam is a necessity in the modern world.

mightbenihilism

Islam is the only religion that can provide a reliable guide to man's life. Firstly, it's laws touch upon all aspects of human life, secondly its traditions have been authentically preserved in a such a manner that it can be with a high degree certainty attributed to its purported author. I say this, because other religious texts, while claiming to have guidance, there is no way they can be traced back to their alle...

Should western nations (including the United States) legalize gay marriage?

Hi everyone, this is my first debate on debate.org. Have patience! With that stated, here I go! Whether you think it's a choice or not, whether you approve of homosexuality or not, homosexuality exists. Gay people exist. Gay couples and relationships exist. You can choose to ignore them, but they will continue to have sex and partnerships. If you believe it is a choice, then as long as humans retain free will, there will always be people who choose to be gay, even in the most intolerant of...

Should people debate while under the effects of alcohol? Specifically, 1-8 light beers.

jugheadjones

At this point I have consumed 6 Heineken beers in the last 4 hours. I feel as if my mind is more open and my argument conduction is the same, if not better, than when I am sober. To defeat me in the debate one must, convince the voters that one should not conduct any arguments while under the effects of a certain amount of alcohol. For me to win I must convince the voters that it is acceptable to debate while intoxicated to the extent specified below.To be specific as to how int...
