Assisted suicide should be illegal.

FourTrouble

"Assisted suicide" refers to "the act of deliberately assisting another person to kill themselves." == A Definitional Note ==The term "assisted suicide" is something of a misnomer. There's no crime called "assisted suicide." I do not argue a legal penalty for patients who seek help in dying. The crime at issue is assisting suicide, and it's targeted solely at those who help another commit suicide. The legal right sought by proponents is...

usernamesareannoying

In my Debate I will argue that Creationism is not a logical idea. That its attempt to explain the origins of life, is nothing more than creation itself. I will show through evidence that evolution is a more logical theory that has yet to be disproved. I will compare the two and point out the difference's. I will attempt to discredit Creationism all together. To begin I will give definition's of the two views. cre"a"tion"ism krēG2;āSHəG6;nizəm/ noun noun: creationism...

That all "good" brings a bit of "evil" and that all "evil" brings a little "good". An example in the book is that a devastating flood will bring nutrient rich soil for plants to grow. I would like my opponent to come up with the most evil things and/or the most good things that can happen (on earth). Multiple statements or "events" in each argument preferred....
