Bnesiba

I will provide a list of topics, choose one, you're CON, I'm PRO. Then in R2 I go and post. Note, I am playing Devil's advocate in some places. 1. Most nonhuman Animal's do not deserve rights. 2. Utilitarianism is superior to Kantianism. 3. Sarah Palin is not as incompetent as she is made out to be. 4. Cannibalism of dead people should be socially acceptable, if not encouraged. 5.

Bush Lied People Died? Part II

Watchman81
Seerss

Okay, so I tried this debate once, but didn't get a good opponent. Hopefully this one will work better. Here is my opening argument. In this debate, I am arguing that President Bush did NOT lie in order to justify the United State's invasion of Iraq. Whether or not the United State's invasion of Iraq was justifiable or not is irrelevant to this debate. I am arguing against the popular belief that Bush used deception in order to justify the US' invasion of Iraq. The reason we went to war wa...

Vigilantism is Justified when govermnment has failed to enforce the law

TheCategorical
Metz

Affirmation V: Societal welfare VC: Will to Power of societal order Thesis: The will to power is an individual's struggle against their surroundings that culminates in personal growth, and the ability to assert power. Vigilantism is justified through this struggle against the crime that has been committed. In Will to Power Nietzsche writes: "My idea is that every specific body strives to become master over all space and to extend its force (its will to power) and to thrust back all that resi...

This House Would Recognize That The NDP Should Lose the 2009 Nova Scotia Election

MistahKurtz
Volkov

Let me begin by thanking Volkov for the wonderful idea. I would define 'this house' as the Nova Scotia legislature, still led by Rodney MacDonald's Progressive Conservative party. I would loosely define 'recognize' as put forward a platform as to why the PC, Liberal or Green party should win stead of the New Democratic Party. I define 'lose' as any configuration that results in the NDP not forming government. I hope that satisfies my honorable opponent and I invite him to change any bones...

I will negate the resolution. Please only accept if you use an LD format. Only use your real case at your own risk (I will not use mine). If you accept please start round one with your opening speech, do not go onto round two. I look forward to a good debate....

Space exploration is a waste of time and money

chuck_norris
vcheng

A lot of people may say that space exploration should be abolished because it is a waste of money, but think of how much we have advanced in our knowledge of space. This has to be known because some of the planets and moons we have discovered are suitable for us to live on when we move from Earth, so it is essential that man knows about space and we constantly have to keep updating and developing our knowledge. "I don't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread...

Space travel

We need to get our own planet's managements in order, such as health-care, world hunger, and homelessness first. Plus if something goes wrong, we will have just wasted billions of dollars. (P.S., we will never live on Mars. Period.)...
