God

NathanaelsOption
SeekinTruth

Hi. I'm my name is Nathanael and I'm 16. I believe people believe in god because they don't have another answer.

The Holocaust happened

ThamesDarwin
TheTroof

ADDENDUM: TheTroof has asked for a gas chambers only debate, so we'll do that instead. I am the most reasonable man in America. TheTroof has been been debating the Holocaust with a couple of people with decent knowledge of the topic. It's been interesting to read. I'm interesting in seeing whether he's interested in trying his hand with something with years of experience debating this topic and with sufficient expertise to have taught the topic at the university level and to have published sc...

sansvoix
inevitable_winner

First round is for acceptance only. Only accept this debate if you believe Qatar is a legitimate location to hold the 2022 FIFA World Cup. I shall be arguing that, based on the logic that Qatar, a country with no footballing history, no credentials in sports of any type and a horrendous human rights record, the People's Democratic Republic of Korea should be given the honour of hosting the next available World Cup....
