Should video games be considered a sport?

xNodensTheGreatx

Chess is a sport. It requires strategy, is played worldwide, and is a competitive game. Those same principals can, and are - applied to video games. In my personal opinion, gaming takes much more mental prowess than say chess. You have to learn how your opponents play, you have to practice, and you have to understand the rules of each game - and how each game works. Unlike other sports, such as football, soccer, basketball, and etc. - gaming is not focused on one specific game. There are hundred...

I've avoided this topic for too long, mostly because of my religious background and only I have only recently known a different path, atheism. Burden of proof will be upon Con, my opponent 51%. This is due to the nature of morals, actions are considered moral until proven otherwise. Just as a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Structure Round one Acceptance and definitionsRound two arguments, don...

The idea of this debate is to create the most pathetic super hero you can. You must be creative and try not to be boring. Round 1:acceptance Round 2: Create a super hero.

Should immigrants be required to assimilate into western society, and embrace our values?

In my opinion I think immigrants should be required to assimilate into society, and embrace our values. I'm not saying that an immigrant should abandon their culture entirely, however immigrants should embrace our values and language, and heritage if they want to be an American, and stay here. In Europe for example muslim immigrants are somewhat of a hassle on society as many refuse to integrate, and many children of immigrants from non-western countries tend to perform lower on tests, and m...

Human beings act on instinct. Animals do not have that ability. That is a well known fact. However, does this simple ability distinguish us so much that while you are barely allowed touch another human, you can do completely immoral experiments to animals? I hope not, my friends. While I agree that for diseases such as Swine Flu, animals should be treated on, I find it cruel to test in perfectly healthy animals. I hope the audience can see my point on this matter....

Girls seem to favor learning in a quieter setting in which they work together and come to a consensus. Boys tend to favor a setting that is more competitive, physically active, and louder....

Stealing for survival must not be punished.

Vvolechka
DebatingQuest

Stealing for survival must not be punished. The person does it because he/she has no other option. If , say, women in a war zone steals the bread because there is nothing else to eat then that is not a crime. Such woman can not be said to be a thief....
