Debate.org should have an actual competition using provided topics

finn.b14
subhapriya

Debate.org should have an online debate competition involving topics provided by the site staff because it would be a good way to find the best debaters on the site and to encourage debates on topics other than god, American politics and pornography. I would be very willing to help implement and maintain a competition such as this. Does anyone disagree with this idea?...

Should we give Cetaceans Rights?

TheDebaytDood

One time, a few years ago, I was on a visit to Cancun, Mexico. One day, we visited a lagoon where they kept dolphins, however these dolphins were free to come and go from the ocean. The ocean around was filled with trash at the time, and the trainers decided that instead of cleaning the tank themselves, to make it faster, they would train the dolphins to pick the trash up. This in itself is amazing. The trainers would give the dolphins fish every time they brought a piece of trash to the stage....

Should the U.S. have breed specific bans on dogs?

NCAR

Breed Specific Bans: Most commonly on breeds of the pit bull or Rottweiler genre that ban or restrict dogs from or to an area based on breed. These bans are usually provoked by dog fighting or dog attacks, because people think that these breeds are inherently dangerous. I will take con. I believe that the U.S. should NOT have breed specific bans on dogs. My opponent should take pro, so yes we SHOULD have breed specific bans....

LeBron James is the greatest basketball player of all time

KingJames23
alexthedebate

LeBron James is the greatest of all time. LeBron will have a longer career than Jordan will. (I know he didn't go to college) He has played against a generation where 3 point shooting is virtually impossible to miss. He carried the Cavaliers 2 games in the finals against the Warriors. This season they finished (73-9). LeBron has played against arguably the best talent in the NBA of all time. (03-16) Lebron has 2 rings. Jordan has 6. LeBron didn't win until he went to the Heat with Wade and Bosh....

Do you even liberty bro?

Does Brucewang even liberty bro? Let's see! "You're guilty of a great sin, Mr. Rearden, much guiltier than they tell you, but not in the way they preach. The worst guilt is to accept an undeserved guilt - and that is what you have been doing all your life. . . . Your own moral code - the one you lived by, but never stated, acknowledged or defended - was the code that preserves man's existence. If you were punished for it, what was the nature of those who punished you? Yours was the code of li...
