This house regrets the rise of anonymity in social media

Andrew.T
TheShadeM

Ladies and gentlemen. The social network has been affecting many people's life. We all know what social network is. It includes something like facebook or twitter, and it is very rampant, widespread in our community. What i mean by anonymity here is, a state when people do not disclose their real identity. They can change their name into somebody else's, or into something like Superman, Snow White, or Barbie to falsify their whole identity in social network. This is what we do when we sign...

First come last serve

The last person in a queue should be served first because queues are a waste of time. when people know that they would be served first in a queue, they tend to go earlier than they have to which causes a queue. If things turn around and people know the last would be served first, they would relax wherever they are without having to go early and cause an unnecessary queue. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34153628...

Homosexual Behavior Is Immoral

RationalTheism
VenomousPen

I wish to thank my opponent for engaging me in this debate. I look forward to a spirited exchange. I will be defending the historic Christian position that homosexual behavior is immoral. Using the same method that Paul employed in Romans 1:26-27, I will argue that homosexuality is wrong because it is unnatural, meaning that it is contrary to the proper functioning of human sexual organs. Additionally, because both myself and my opponent are Christians, I will also make use of Biblical passag...

The United States Federal Government should legalize prostitution.

kasmic

Well well, it's been a long time since kasmic's been active, and it's my pleasure to be one of the first to debate him following his return. I look forward to a great debate on this hot button issue. Just a note to voters: the ELO minimum has been set to 2500. I think this resolution is relatively straightforward, but I'll be as clear as possible. This is a policy-based resolution, and as such, it is my burden to present a case. The burden of proof is on me, as I am seeking to change polic...
