The Death Penalty

ansuma
Addison98

I am arguing that the death penalty should be abolished. The death penalty has been used since ancient history. Since then, the justice system has improved but it can not be perfect. Many a time the death penalty has resulted in false execution. Another problem is that juries are less willing to convict if they know the suspect will die, leading to the release of the actual criminal. It also costs more and is morally wrong....

is the Confederate flag racist?

hwillsr
Boesball

I believe the Confederate flag is not racist, not only because of its history, but because of ours. Tn the history of the United States, we have condoned the actions of forcing Native Americans off their lands, mass genocide of native americans, slavery, and concentration camps of Japanese people and it is seen as a sign of freedom. Also, the "Confederate" flag as we call it, or the battle flag of the northern Virginia army, was seen as a sign of pride, courage, and bravery....

The Media and Bernie Sanders

George_Dugas
RisKYourself

My position inn the debate is that the media needs to take Bernie Sanders more seriously as a candidate for the president of The United States of America. Con will argue that he is deserving the treatment given by the media, or that he isn't being treated poorly by the media as a candidate. I encourage anyone to debate me on this subject, but I would prefer members of the democratic party. Opening remarks: In my belief Bernie Sanders is being treated poorly as a candidate for the nomination o...

Commentary on the Allopathic Paradigm and Resulting Business Model

mawbi420
bjartur

It"s unreal how very poor to non-existent true assistance, medical or otherwise, is for the majority of ill people because of very tightly controlled* specialties as defined by the Allopathic paradigm/doctrine. *Boundaries are Never to be breached, so if your skin hurts and your muscles hurt too, that"s TWO specialists you will need to see each with no knowledge or interest in the other. We are not lego blocks!!! "Assumptions about and credibility of "a newly emerging field of medicine" is gr...

The contradiction between free will and omniscience prove the Christian god a fiction.

I_Voyager
gryephon

In this debate we will discuss whether an omnipotent being can create beings with free will. It'll be a four-round debate where the Pro takes the view that he cannot, and if the claim is made, the claim is false. The Con will defend and argue that somehow it is reasonable that their omniscient god created agents with free will and in doing so defend the claim that god exists. Claims for god - God is omniscient, omnipotent, eternal and transcendent of time. God hates sin, but everything he mak...

American democracy is a failure.

learnyang1812
Mike_10-4

As Abraham Lincoln explains in the Gettysburg Address, democracy is intended to be a "government of the people, by the people, for the people," however, in 2015 we find that modern democracy no longer achieves those goals and has failed the people it was intended to save. American democracy has devolved to such a point that it is no longer for the people nor by the people and fails at its entire purpose. Throughout the course of this debate, as the affirmative I will be tasked with the burde...

NDE near death experience. i know of no examples to say otherwise. just speculation by people that they do in fact experience an array of figures from an array of religions. no concrete examples. i'm asking for at least two or three examples. looking at it from the islamic faith, apparently there may be something to this"The Search for Muslim Near-Death Experiences"http://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc461694/m2/1/high_res_d/28-2%206%20Art%2008%20Kreps...
