This House Would prohibit the emigration of medical personnel to developed countries

NOTE: This is an official Connecticut Debate Association resolution. The third-world countries need doctors to help combat Ebola, this is a fact, however the doctors in Sierra Leone and Africa aren't that well trained. They need better training and where do they get it? Countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other first-world countries. This resolution bars them from getting the training they need to help their people...

Gay Marriage- Taking away Love "A life without love is no life at all." "Leonardo Di Vinci. By not allowing gay marriage, the privilege of eternal love is taken away. Homosexual couples should be allowed to marry, because they deserve the same rights as straight couples, it will give children a healthy home by helping gay couples adopt, and will help the economy. Homosexual couples deserve the same rights and legal benefits as heterosexual couples. Michelle Johnson, former editor for the Bost...

The Big Bang is not TRUE. It is unreasonable-as I will argue in this debate. I will define our terms: The Big Bang: The model postulates that at some moment all of space was contained in a single point from which the universe has been expanding ever s...

College Athletes Getting Paid to Play

Ever realized how early a college athlete leaves college, or how much money they receive for autographs? The number is too high. Student athletes should focus on school and playing the game for passion, instead of money. Athletes in college need to focus on getting an education in school first. Most athletes only go to college for sports "just 44% of men"s basketball players graduate within six years" (Players). That number is under half and way too low. Some say that a college education isn"t...

Cheerleading: Is it a Sport?

Waukee_Student

Cheerleading: Is it a Sport? Imagine going to a football game. The football players are on the field or watching from the sidelines. But who else is there standing on the sidelines? Yes, there are the coaches, the trainers, the team managers and a couple other people. But there are also cheerleaders. Many people in the world do not consider cheerleading a sport, but by definition, cheerleading should be considered a sport. There are also many risks involved in cheerleading and it requires gre...

Homeopathy is a valid form of medicine

SarcasticMethod
Madmanwithabluebox

In this debate I and my opponent will debate the claim that homeopathy is a valid form of medicine. I would like that all non-trivial claims are backed up either by empirical evidence or logical reasoning. Stick to standard English grammar and spelling, but don't call anyone out on their spelling, as it would slow down the debate. Also, try to write responses like you might design a skirt: long enough to cover all the details, but short enough to keep you excited. 1st round: Definitions 2nd ro...
