Should the government fund more space travel?

R_Jacob_Percival_M

In 2014, NASA received $17.6 Billion in funding from the U.S. government. This represented .5% of the of the $3.4 Trillion budget last year and 35% of total spending on academic scientific research in the United States. I think that the government should continue fund more space exploration. I believe that a space agency that is fully funded will be beneficial to human society and history as a whole. Thank you for accepting this debate. Use round one to give your opening statements, no reb...

The Death Penalty

byaka2013
Asoz

If murder is (usually) the crime, why should murder be the penalty? The fact is, your just killing more people. Besides, http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/executed-possibly-innocent says more than 1000 people have been falsely accused and killed due to the death penalty (since 1976) You may bring up how the same thing applies to regular prison. To be fair, it does. Maybe there are even more. But there is a difference in killing a person and punishing them with jail. Now, couple no death penalty...

ALM( ALL LIVES MATTER) members needed

"It is raining blood today. I open my book and write "Black Lives Matter" to acknowledge the unanswered injustices. I write "Blue Lives Matter" for how can any human be separate from humanity? I write "All Lives Matter" but stare at these words. Do they invalidate the others? I do not know. I am only a love poet. I stand conflicted but the clouds continue to bleed. I come to erase the phrase but find that the blood has already drowned my words." R13; Kamand Kojouri...

Does Abortion Kill a Baby?

Godstruth
paradoxnoname

I want to debate someone who believes that abortion is not murder, because it does not kill a baby. I will argue the opposite. I believe that abortion is the termination of a human life, created by God, thus is murder. First round is acceptance only. Second round is for arguments, no rebuttals, and the last two rounds are for arguments and rebuttals. Good luck, opponent!...

The gay marriage ruling in the US should not be overturned

Shawnsummer7
RC-9282

The issue this debate is going to be about is whether or not, as SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch is about to be confirmed, even if given the opportunity the Supreme Court should not overturn the Obergefell ruling which legalized same sex marriage nationwide. I will be arguing Pro (the Supreme Court should not overturn gay marriage). My opponent, of course, will be arguing Con (the Supreme Court should overturn it). The four rounds are as follows: Round 1 (Acceptance of debate) Round 2 (Opening s...
