First round is solely for acceptance. Next three rounds are for new arguments and rebuttals. Last round is for rebuttals only. No new arguments please. Please only accept this debate if you are educated on the topic and can make legitimate points and can rebut all or most of my points. Looking forward to this. Good luck....

There is no evidence that humans share a common ancestor with apes

Abeceda
IBeatMyMeats

My position is that there is not one piece of evidence in support of the idea that humans share a common ancestor with apes - that can not be interpreted in another way. To clarify my position even further, I shall provide an example. Homology, which is considered evidence of such common ancestry, might equally be evidence of common factory (i.e. that the similarities are not due to a shared ancestor, but a shared maker). If you disagree with this, and believe that you have definitive evid...

Should people be able to keep exotic animals?

AnimalJamRocks
Mal618

One reason why people shouldn"t be able to keep exotic animals is because they are very hard to take care of. Exotic animals aren"t very good companions. They need lots of attention, space, and when they grow up, lots and lots of food. If the animals needs aren"t met, they could suffer....

Hello, Chui, Should you accept, first round is acceptance and thesis only. round two is for arguments, but no rebuttals. Rounds three and four are for arguments and rebuttals.

The Trump Travel Ban was Beneficial to the United States

jaketower555
DStallman

The travel ban recently put into place is beneficial to the United States. I am not here to defend the entire Executive Order, as I actually do think that more countries should be added, but this list is better than nothing. Take a look at polls of what Muslims actually believe. They are not good people to be living in Western Society. I do feel sorry for these people who are actually suffering in countries such as Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, etc. But I do think that we should think about the f...

Should music be censored around the country?

Bac0nIs1ife
09JBlake

To start, I think it shouldn't. The reason is because we all have the freedom of speech. That includes music. If you don't like it, just don't be around it. What if you listened to a special kind of music,and people said it should be censored? You would feel that it is not right. Also, the music industries would be put out of buisness if most of their music was censored. Finally, the governenment my have too much fun sensoring music that they might just only make people listen to their music, li...

Is it appropriate for employers to require that their female workers wear make-up to work?

Kymboslice
squonk

Absolutely not. I am a female member of waiting staff in a high-end hotel. 2 days ago my superior was used as a scapegoat and instructed by the resort's (FEMALE) general manager to inform myself and my female colleagues that we have to 1) wear our hair in a bun 2) wear make up every working day and 3) "touch up" our makeup 3 times throughout a shift. Disgusted, insulted and outraged at this new rule I am considering approaching Human Resources about the issue. The tidy neat is fair enough, b...

The line "One nation, under God" should be kept in the pledge of allegiance.

PFJones
hello24942

I would like to argue against anyone who would like to argue that the line should be kept in the pledge. I would like to set up some guidelines, however. Whoever my opponent is, use the first round to just say you'll accept the challenge, and then Rounds 2-4 will be used as a three round debate. That will be all....
