Hip-hop is a good genre of music

HendoR

So, you know about hip-hop music, correct? Well, I am here to argue for its high-quality. First off, hip-hop is probably the most unique genre. Now uniqueness isn't always good, but it's interesting. Because of its different style, hip-hop is an interesting genre. Its subgenres, ranging from crunk to trap to horrorcore, allows the genre to have a wide variety of sounds. Now, the themes in it range from subgenre to subgenre, but people tend to focus on the mainstream when placing their jud...

Evolution V. Creationism

WJKosacs
creationtruth

You said that you would defend your position, so let's have this debate. I am of the opinion that evolution is the only viable explanation for life on earth. You say that creation is the only viable option and is the only option supported by observable evidence. How so? We have observed evidence of evolution already, such as the peppered moth changing from a very light color to a very dark one after the industrial revolution to have better camoflauge, the Italian wall lizards that were introduce...

wrap battle

Yo yo yo, it's a wrap battle hoe. My opponent may wrap in the first round and skip the last, or he may just post accept if he don't want to start off that fast. I am a wrap battle champion from east to left, but if you vote than vote for the best. I suggest one point for each round win, judging another way is optional but considered a sin. If my opponent fails to post a wrap, it considered round lost, punish him so he can pay the cost. I look forward to this debate, good luck to my opp...

missbailey8

I am pro, which means that I think abortion is outright murder. First round will be just for acceptance, so your first round argument should be something like, "I accept" and anything else you want to say about the rules and/or format....

Is the bible real?

TheLogic
Ubermensch-Tsoa

First, let's talk about the obvious inconsistency: time. Christians claim that the earth was created only a few thousand years ago. Science has proven this to be false. For one, there is carbon dating. Carbon dating is a process used to determine the relative age in certain objects. This has told us countless times that there were objects on the earth BILLIONS of years ago. In fact just a few years ago in 2014, a crystal was found that is 4.4 billion years old. Explain that....

More Guns are Not the Answer to Stopping Gun Violence

theobjectiveobjective
ABeard

More guns is will not decrease gun violence, it will increase it. Multiple studies have shown this to be true. Before you post any statistics or studies, please make sure they are fair comparisons. For example, in comparing gun violence in two locations, we must account for the differences in amount of poverty, crime trends, drug use and trafficking, etc. I will cite the following studies that have confirmed that higher gun ownership leads to higher gun violence: American Journal of...

Teen Debaters

DebateOnThis
BenJWasson

I believe that Teenagers should have their opinion voiced just as much as adults do. Adults make the majority of the decisions but intelligent debaters such as myself are still only in their teens and have no idea how to voice the opinions to the government and/or higher debate teams. I, as a debaterfeel we should have a group designed for teen debaters to have their opinion voiced on popular topics on the news. We CAN help in world problems. If you'd give us a chance....
