That a human life is intrinsically worth more than the life of an animal

Skeptical1
Bremners

The topic pretty much sums it up. If you accept this debate, you are saying that you can justify making the claim that as a general principle, a human life is worth more than an animal (to avoid getting into ridiculous discussions, we'll say any mammal, then we won't be arguing about amoebas). My job is to show that such a claim can't be justified. I will open with the example of the killing of a gorilla named Harambe when a three year old child climbed into the gorilla enclosure at Cincinatt...

Animal Rights

Hello. I am doing several debates on the Big Issues. This is my third. The topic for this debate is animal rights. Should we give animals rights? That is what we will discuss in this debate.

Transgender People's Gender Are Valid

Eqcuis
thedebater99

I'm arguing that transgender people are valid, in other words, they are the gender that they claim. My reasons are based on this statements here according to the American Psychological Association; "Sex refers to a person's biological status and is typically categorized as male, female, or intersex."----"Gender refers to the attitudes, feelings, and behaviors that a given culture associates with a person's biological sex." So based on the statements above, gender is made up whereas sex is...

Should we lower the costs of college, law school, etc.?

best_debator
David_Debates

To get started, I want to ask a ?. Do most students who have a dream of being anything that requires going through college or law school have the money for it? According to "collegetuitioncompare", college tuition has grown both in-state and out-of-state over the past 10 years. The thing is, with tuition being so high, students can't fulfill their dreams, making them less satisfied. I don't think working their tails off would even help funding for college education. No ten-dollar per hour job is...

Communism will beat Capitalism

TheDebaytDood
CraftyMiscreant

As an American Communist, I feel that there is not nearly enough debate on this website concerning the principles of Marxism-Leninism and Communist ideology. In this debate, I will argue that the capitalist system is doomed to fail, and that communism will eventually prevail. My opponent will argue that this is not the case. Let the debate begin! Hail the revolution!...

Committing homosexual acts may lead to God killing you.

JimShady
Virgil_NZ

ALERT! ALERT! This debate will be strictly for Muslims, Christians, or Jews. Any other religions or atheists out there should not accept this debate. Reasons being that this is strictly a religious, moral matter involving Yahweh, the Trinity, and/or Allah. If you are not in this category, know that I'm not discriminating. I simply want the point of view of someone who worships the same God as me. This debate is also not open to any people who feel that homosexual acts are allowed by God's...

Manmade global climate change is real and a threat.

Stupidape

I have noticed that a surprising number of people still think global climate change is a hoax. I hope to destroy some of that myth. Pope Francis recognizes climate change and calls for swift action. [0] Impact: I think the Pope knows what he is doing and thus man-made global climate change is real and a threat. 0. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/19/world/europe/pope-francis-in-sweeping-encyclical-calls-for-swift-action-on-climate-change.html?_r=0...
