Australia's laws on Embryonic Research are outdated.

As research is conducted in other countries, they have identified genes in zygotes with could prevent miscarriages from occurring. However, if this research was conducted in Australia, the scientist behind this groundbreaking research would be put in jail for 15 years. Does Australia need to re-think its policies/laws about this research? Does it prevent us from moving forward in this field of research? what about the future of our country? how could this research benefit/harm Australia? Th...

Minorities are not at a disadvantage in American society.

marquettelddebate

This is in regards to 3 main categories. 1. Education - Minorities are given every opportunity to pursue their education just as whites are. 2. Policing - Minorities are not unfairly policed, if anything they are under policed. 3. Job Opportunities - Minorities are not denied jobs simply because of the color of their skin or their race. Now this is not to say that such instances don't occur because they do for every race. The point is that it is neither systemic or widespread. My opponen...

Is life worth living?

Artin

There are countless layers to this question, mostly derived from the many definitions of "worth." For me, life is like an unsolved equation, for which I can't even see the equation to solve. Every day I wake up, this huge question is all over my face, punching me the defenseless hardly. And if that was not enough, one is also forced to share his equation with other people's equations to survive(socialization). Didn't choose to be born, forced to survive with the equipment I did not ch...

Atheism is more plausible than Theism

KevinGrem
JohnSmythe

Today I will argue that in light of both the arguments for and against the existence of God, that atheism is more plausible than theism.(1) The first argument for atheism is that there is a serious absence of evidence for God's existence. If God did exist, there are a number of critical pieces of evidence that we should expect to find, but which we fail to find. For exa...

The universe needs a creator, therefore God exists

KostasT.1526
backwardseden

Hello In this debate the topic discussed is whether the universe requires a creator (or rather, a God) or not, on scientific and philosophical terms (mainly the former). Pro is to argue that it does need a creator, while I, Con, will argue that it does not. The burden of proof is therefore shared. _________________________________________________________________________________________ Definitions: Universe [1]: [yoo-nuh-vurs] noun 1. the totality of known or supposed objects and phe...

Should guns be banned? (think Las Vegas Massacre)

bluetree653
Caden335

Just because guns can be harmful doesn't mean that they should be taken away or that their usage should be reduced. If laws were created to ban guns, people would still find ways to maintain weapons, just like the black market does for drugs. Additionally, in 1918 a law passed that banned alcohol, but it didn't work. If you think that guns should be banned, what about cigarettes? We don't ban them because people need them and also we have the second amendment for guns. The shooter of the LA mass...
