It is just dumb to fill up the debates with super hero's and Pokemon stuff. There are actually people doing assignments trying to find debates to go to the next grade to graduate. Really grow up ... For all I care go on to wiki answers , yahoo answers. But this is a professional site that is supposed to be used for important debates. Thank you!...

Thanks for accepting this debate I hope we have a great debate! We"d like to start of with definitions The Rise of China is the process of China, changing from a developing country with industrial economies to a developed one with service oriented economies, especially in the last ten years. Interests of the US should be defined as the favorable conditions of the United States and their affairs, such as the economy, trade, and the quality of the life of US citizens. My partner and I w...

9/11 was not an inside job.

darryshan
Free_Th1nker

The evidence for 9/11 being an inside job is factually deceiving, and requires many assumptions. For example, claims that the buildings fell at freefall speeds ignore the obvious debris that fell faster than the collapse, seen in this image: http://i.imgur.com/ny6BLbn.png Also, claims that WTC 7 was destroyed in a controlled demolition do not take into account any of the information from the NIST report which explored WHY the buildings fell. The investigation showed that the load bearing s...

GOD=7_4 whereas G is the 7th letter, a circle, D is 4. The ancients observed the 7 Classical Planets: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and 4 of thee don't cast shadows on Earth (Venus does)/4 can't be easily seen during the day (Venus can be). There are 4 lunar phases roughly 7 days (~7.4 days) each varying due to apogee and perigee. Lunar year + 7 day week +4 days = 365 day solar year. Mars has a 47 year cycle where it retu...

Resolved, that English should be made the official language of the United States

reubenco
Danielle

Language may be the most important aspect to assimilating into a society. When a member of a community cannot understand the lingua franca, that will prevent them from becoming a productive citizen and will alienate everybody else. We currently see many people (about 15 million), mostly immigrants, in the United States who cannot even speak English, and that completely shuts them out from interacting with born Americans. It is estimated that 322 languages are actively spoken in the United States...
