Obama will not be our next President

joshandr30

Obama will not be our next President. I have three arguments for this stance on this debate. 1.RACE-Unfortunately America is not ready for a African American President. Racism is not far enough in our past yet. I am a Union member. Out of the twenty seven people I work with there are three Republicans, including myself. The "dems" I work with were split, twenty for Clinton, four for Obama. When Clinton lost the nomination twenty of the "Dems" said they would NOT vote for Obama. Race was the m...

The resolution states "rational...

The Qur'an openly preaches violence and hatred against non-believers.

Mirza

My opponent, Mirza has offered to discuss a controversial subject regarding the Qur'an, that it openly preaches violence and hatred as this has been bothering me for some time now. While I'm aware that much of it is likely misinterpretations it's still an important issue worth addressing. One can't help, but to wonder why there's so much bloodshed done in the name of the "religion of peace". I hope for an interesting and informative debate. Good luck to both of us! I will begin by presenting...

(History suggests) Muslims have killed more than Christians in the name of their god.

(History suggests) Muslims have killed more than Christians in the name of their god. This debate is to see if Muslims have killed more people in the name of their religion than Christians. My arguments will be displayed in Round two, a way of reliving pressure when Con accepts a the debate. Expect anyone who takes this to have a good knowledge of the History of Islam and Christianity to modern day, also the History the Middle East and North Africa, Byzantium, Coptic Christianity (Patriarch o...

Are republicans just stuck up christians with too much money?

gonovice
RepublicanView333

Republicans, where to start. This debate is sensitive subject with me. My whole family is Republican and christian. I guess you could call me a rebel. I am confused about God and I am a democrat. I think that republicans are extremley close minded and dont ever allow anything new or different in the country. George Bush for example came from a wealthy family and look how sucky the country is right now!! I would like to know why republicans are so against gay marriage. Oh wait I already know that...

In terms of quality of life, a flat tax places an unfair, substantially heavier burden on the poor.

KroneckerDelta
Beginner

This is mostly a hypothetical debate. However, I will present numbers which Con is more than welcome to question.In this debate we will be looking at relatively modern Western Societies and specifically the United States (although I think this would easily apply to modern European countries such as the UK, France, Germany, etc.). This stipulation is particularly important when defining the minimum cost of living (since one could say that in 3rd world countries the cost of living...

God is guilty of collusion to sacrifice a child in the case of Jepthah

izbo10
ReformedArsenal

This debate will have me arguing like a prosecuting attorney trying to prove that Yahweh is guilty of collusion to sacrifice a human being in the book of Judges. My opponent will defend Yahweh, unlike a court of law this is not beyond reasonable doubt, though I think it will be shown, but who presents a better case and which appears more likely. First round will be acceptence of terms and any questions which I will address in comments.

Individualism is societally destructive

thett3
DanT

I've made this impossible for anyone to accept, if anyone wants to debate this comment or PM me.Individualism is defined by Merriam Webster as: "a doctrine that the interests of the individual are or ought to be ethically paramount"Destruction is synonymous with ruinous. My advocacy will essentially be that the individualism that has sweeped the world, particularly the West, since the enlightenment is responsible for many of society's current...
