Homosexuality

HermanGomez95
crueldebater

This debate adresses accepting/condoning homosexuality.I have taken the Pro stance against the question, asserting that homosexuality should be welcomed and accepted by society. Whomever accepts this debate will argue this notion with me. For the sake of the argument, I will not accept anyone who agrees with me, but desires the challenge of debating this subject. I am looking to have a heated, but civil debate with someone vehemently against homosexuality. Since this debate is somewhat eccentr...

Gaming Debate #1 - Is the protagonist of FNAF4 the victim of "The Bite of '87"?

TheAlchemistGamer
DeathCon5

Something I've seen a lot in this site are debates on issues we have seen over and over again, so to makes things a bit more fun I will instead debate about games and their lore. The first subject is a game I've seen debated non-formally in a lot of places. Since the new Five Nights at Freddy's game came out the fanbase has been divided in people who think the FNAF4 game's protagonist is the victim of the famous or infamous incident of the "Bite of '87" and people who think this theory holds...

Is "justified true belief" a good definition for knowledge?

STMannew
lol101

To say "justified true belief is good definition for knowledge" is a conflation of belief and knowledge, as all "belief" is believed to be true and as such its justification is implied in one way or another. However, not all knowledge is known to be true. Therefore, "justified true belief" is a good definition for belief instead....

Careers Should Not Require Prior Schooling

Sulfur
Solomon_Orlando

Instead of schooling to be required for jobs, an entrance exam should be given to people along with a series of post-tests which can only be passed if a persons intelligence is high enough to do so. Therefore, many taxes would be shortened, student debt would be non existent, and a persons wealth will not be a factor when it comes to getting a job. In sense it would be a communism that would allow you to pick jobs your good (and passionate about) by your self....

Should terrible debaters be removed from Debate.org?

lol101
OobsTheWise

Rules: -No trolling -No kritiks/semantics -Con cannot provide a definition -You must accept that by "terrible" I mean debaters who have a reputation for being of a horrendously low quality in debating. I'm referring to the group of debaters who are absolutely terrible at debating and have been that way for quite some time; debaters who are only a little bad or have just started DDO are not "terrible debaters". So I will set up my criteria for terrible: If you have been in at least 50 debates...
