Negative- I stand in negation, "Resolved: In a democratic society, felons ought to retain the right to vote." I offer the following definitions for clarification of the resolution:   Democracy- the political orientation of those who favor government by the people or by their elected representatives. (If argued in CX, state that felons do not favor the government because they cannot abide by the rules that the government has set forth.)   Felon- Someone who commits a felony; A Felony is a l...

If you commit suicide will you go to Heaven or Hell

Whenever the teachings of a religion is so wrong, that disobedience to its teachings is in fact doing what was right, like saving life, for example, then we may know that God did not set up that religion, but that it is the product of sinful man. In the Bible we are told about God: "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity…" Hab. 1:13. This shows us that YHWH the one and only true God is so holy that He had nothing to do with corruption, but not so, with the Hin...

Hi, I'm Stephen Yoo and this is my first speech on the proposition side, on the motion that parents should not buy war toys for children. I'd like to start by explaining exactly what a war toy is. From the Swedish Toy Council, "War toys are playthings which are used to solve conflicts, gain power, or win through the use of violence and imagination. Their aim is to destroy and kill." Next, I'd like to go on to my contentions. Contention 1 Toys are for fun, and not for violence. At an ear...

We strongly affirm today's resolution: Resolved: That, on balance, the rise of Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) has had a positive impact on the United States. For clarity, the following words are defined. "Has had" is in the past tense; therefore any impacts in this round must already have happened. According to the University of Michigan, the rise of BRIC began in the 21st century, so any impacts in this round must have happened between the year 2000 and now. The resolution propo...

The Christian Doctrine Of Free Will Is Impossible

Rook
Republican95

I contend that the Christian God would not be able to provide Free Will if he existed, because he would have foreknowledge (and would have been the creator) of every factor or thought that would cause a person to take action. Furthermore, no thoughts could exist that did not originate from God, because he is the creator of all things, and thoughts that were unknown to him would violate his nature, being omniscient. I define the Christian God as a Omnipotent and Omniscient being who is the so...
