Wylted 100th Debate: The United States should implement caning as a punishment for criminals.


This debate won't be started for at least another 2 weeks. Between then and now, I'll work on the resolution. Any advice on that part is welcome. The debate should be impossible to accept and I will be nominating judges and doing a choose winner option. Judges are yet to be determined and any suggestions by potential opponents will be considered. I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...

The Gender Spectrum is nonsensical


I have not yet had a proper debate on this topic. I assume that groups that believe in the Gender Spectrum have atleast some people who have proper and logical arguments to support this. If gender is a spectrum, i.e. a continuum between two extremes, then everyone would be "Non-binary". Which would make the concept of a "Gender spectrum" redundant and meaningless. Round 1: Greetings and acceptance; opening. Round 2: Arguments, rebuttals Round 3: Rebuttals and closing....

Multiculturalism is impossible because some cultures are better than others.


This is not a debate about race or religion! Believing one race is superior than another is racist. Believing that a culture is superior than another is a valid argument, they can be measured using Human Development Index, access to education, access to health care, literacy rates, poverty rates and anything that shows that cultures overall positive impact of human existence. Pro will make the case that all cultures are not equal, some are much better than others making mulitculuralism ine...

why we should not have zoos


I believe that we should ban zoos because they do a lot of harm. First of all it is a lot of money to care for all the animals. The zoo has to pay for its new habitat, the food and water and they need medical care sometimes as well. It is hard to pay for that so then the animals wont be getting what they need because the zoo cant afford it. Second of all the animals Cant learn to hunt, the food is just set in front of them. If animals are born into the zoo they have know experience with the outd...

Homosexual Behavior Is Immoral


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...

cruel intentions are meaner than mean people


People with cruel intentions are meaner than mean people because they are harming the people for no use. They just want to harm people or create disputes among people. They are two faced people whose eyes burn when they see everything working fine. At least mean people can be identified by experience but cruel intentions can't be. Cruel intentions are the best things for making worst things. Cruel intentions are the armor of people who can't do anything good and hence they make others too not to...
