Man_Of_Few_Words

I have seen many debates on here that claim that skateboarding should be banned. personally I find this ridiculous so I have decided that I would like to debate someone with those feelings and voice my own arguments. My only rule is that it will be in the form of Round 1: arguments Round 2: rebuttal and Round 3: closing arguments and response to rebuttal. If you have any problems with these rules but still want to debate join and comment and we can figure something out. Anyways thanks and I look...

Conditions should first be stated: I'll take burden of proof. This debate focuses on Christian views of the subject. Other philosophies and religions are not included in this argument.

The bible clearly states that being gay is wrong: Leviticus 20:13 "If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are gui...

There are many social media posts that are very anti-immigrant when it comes to the United States. I am very against this for reasons that will be listed in this argument.We are all immigrants. No matter how you look at it, the British immigrated here, the Spanish, Portuguese, even the Native Americans. The idea that someone, in an attempt to get away from a lesser country, should not be allowed to try to have a better life is asinine. Please feel free to argue in yo...

Simple Rules: R1 is opening statements, R2 is for proof and rebuttals, and R3 is for closing arguments. Pro gets the first word, Con gets the last word. BEGIN! Violence is a lack of self-control that results in a desire to hurt or destroy. It is usually direct outward of the person experiencing the stress and frustration that is at the root of the violent behavior. But it can be self-directed also. It commonly results from a person's loss of rational thought when placed under stress. The over...

AbandonedSpring
Voxol

I believe that schools are entitled to check students for contraband or weapons, so long as they do not go too in-depth with searches. For example: a school should be aloud to search cars in the school parking lot, however they should not be allowed to strip search students. 1st round: agreement 2nd round: argue 3rd round: Rebuttals 4th round: Conclusions...
