There should be a universal language throughout the globe

Wycliffe
cathaystewie

Hello everyone, why I feel there should be a universal language; 1) People around the globe, don't have to feel worried when travelling to a foreign country. As I come from an English/Mandarin speaking family, going to places in Europe, USA, Australia, Taiwan etc. is no problem for me. But when I go to places like Korea, Japan, Thailand, Germany, India, France, the problem arises. Yes some locals do speak English, but road signs, maps, rural areas don't have a single English word, which make...

Crumple or Fold

Legendary_Houp
SpaceMp

Anyone who has ever wiped their butt knows what I mean when I say Crumple or Fold. It's simple: Crumple: "Ripping off toilet paper and just sticking it up there and wiping, often using obscene amounts of paper and just going for it." Fold: "Neatly tearing off a few pieces of toilet paper, folding it up really nice and proper, and delicately wiping." The Burden of Proof will be shared. I am Pro, in favor of the crumple, and Con will be in favor of folding. You must show the benefits of...

Students should be allowed to be on their phones during school hours.

Phones are devices that have the ability to be used for lots of things these days, entertainment, connections between friends and family, and most importantly, it has the power to go on the internet. I will be listing the reasons why students should be allowed to be on their phones. One very good "con" reasoning would be that phones distract the user of the phone, and could very well distract the students around the user of the phone. Lets do an example and have the debate going from there. S...

Determinism is true while Free Will is a fallacy

Tyler_Lemke
salam.morcos

I am of the opinion that every event that occurs not only has a preceding event that can be quantitative but also a proceeding event has the same ability and as such can be predicted if enough data were to be accumulated. The idea that nature is "random" is foolish at its core concept. I have absolute certainty that when rain falls from the sky it will eventually evaporate from the ground and fall from the sky once again. I know for a fact that if I put water into an environment that is 32 degre...
