Music Challenge #2

Opsianos
Beginner

Right...so, the last one that was 7 months ago (wow, time flies) pretty much flopped due to me being unable to submit recordings. So, here goes another one! Rules and Conditions 1. Each person must provide ONE original performance of any music per round IN ROUNDS 2 AND 3; round 1 being simply for acceptance, and round 4 being a backup round in case if anything goes wrong (taking a page out of Smithereens' book). Only you (yes, you) are to be pla...

God is not responsible for the evil in the world.

Twigbean
ZachZimmey

Humanity has free will, therefore anything we do that is considered evil is entirely our fault. If i take the life of another human i chose to do that out of my own free will. No one or thing told me or guided me to committing that act, it was my intention, and the blame can not be placed onto God....

Hello, I will start this debate by defining the motion. By single-sex schools, I mean schools with only girls or only boys in one school. As I am done defining to motion, I will begin my arguments. 1. Distraction Children of he opposite sex can be a distraction. Especially for middle and high school students, there could be students who date each other, and this could be a big distraction for students who need to study. As you know, middle and high school is the time to study to o to a bett...

If The Universe Has A Cause, That Cause Is A Personal Mind

Rational_Thinker9119
philochristos

I would like to debate Philochristos on this subject as I feel he is one of the most skilled Theists on this site. In this debate we will assume that the universe began to exist, and has a cause. It will be Pro's job to show that this cause is a personal mind, and my job to show why Pro's reasoning doesn't stand up to critical scrutiny. In Pro's last round he will simply put "no argument will be posted, as agreed." My opponent's first arguments will be posted in round one; no acceptan...

Is Batman a superhero

CONORMCGREGOR123
McDavid

As much as I hate to say it, Batman is a superhero. Merriam-Webster defines superhero as "a fictional hero having extraordinary or superhuman powers; also : an exceptionally skillful or successful person." We know that Batman does not have superhuman powers however he is extremely skillful and successful....

Should the death penalty be legal?

Scmiedforge
FollowerofChrist1955

Rules: I'll be taking the position of the Con, you will take the position of the Pro. We are both Christians so quoting of the Bible is a legitimate defense of our beliefs, but also please include non-religious reasons for your beliefs as well. Round 1 is for acceptance, Round 2 is for arguments, Round 3 is for rebuttals. Thank you for considering participating in this debate....

Should the study of classic literature be required?

DStallman
S.S_NZ

While the study of classic literature does have its merits and, indeed, is one of my personal favorite subjects of study throughout my education, it should not be required for all students. Art history, music appreciation, and other such classes that focus on particular art forms in a historical and analytical format can be beneficial and enjoyable for students, but they are not required. While language classes are a definite necessity given their application in most if not all professions,...
