missbailey8

It's obvious that I am above you (DDO travelers) in all respects. The intellectual capacity of your crainial appendages are all DWARFED by mine. This being the case, I have attempted to figure out WHY I was given my powers. This is quintessential to foster my understanding the greater powers. Their abilities are beyond even MY unfathomable grasp....

If a Nation denys Reality

Lookingatissues
Briannj17

Not only this nation, America, but the world has turned a blind eye to reality and have decided that if they ignore the problem of a enemy who is attacking them that the enemy will just go away in time and the world will be at peace again. This enemy is like a virulent virus which won't go away if left untreated but will takes down the host nation in which it lives and thrives . This virulent virus lies dormant in the nation body building up a confidence in the nation body that it can in time ad...

Overpopulating the Earth

GoOrDin
CynicalOptimist

I think that it is impossible for the human race to overpopulate the earth - considering our resources* - if we increase the population gradually and in a regulated manner to allow the vegetation to keep up with converting rock into biomass which can be eaten. Of course we can outnumber the space, but that is not what I am stipulating. I believe that so long that there is Space to literally live, then the world can produce enough resources to sustain us. If we lived in the planet, then we...

The United States should Abolish the Death Penalty

FieryNyan
SocialDemocrat

I'm formally extending this invitation to SocialDemocrat after watching his debate with Queencop. It was a fun debate to spectate, and I would like a slice of the cake :) According to Merriam-Webster, death penalty is defined as "execution of an offender sentenced to death after conviction by a court of law of a criminal offense." Today, 32 states, and even the Federal government uses death penalty. My stand: Death Penalty should be maintained as part of the US System of Justice SocialDem...

Insanity

albertack
Aguilajoyce

Albert Einstein is generally credited with the quote, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Whether or not it was truly Einstein who said this is irrelevant to the purpose of the debate, for I want to examine the statement on the merit of what it implies, rather than the authority from whence it came. This quote has often been cited to me in a variety of settings--from well-intentioned friends trying to advise me on the best course of action...

How would an atheist prove the existence of color as an asthetic concept to a blind man?

ViceRegent
NickS5185

Do atheists know that their physical senses are the only ones? What would they say to a blind man who said there are only four senses, denying the existence of the sense of sight. He demands evidence from you as to the existence of color as an asthetic concept. What would you say?...

Euthanasia: Wrong or Right?

FieryNyan
ChickenBoy8888

Should Euthanasia be legalized? "the terminally ill are a class of persons who need protection from family, social, and economic pressures, and who are often particularly vulnerable to such pressures because of chronic pain, depression, and the effects of medication." ... from the State of Alaska's arguments that assisted suicide is dangerous (Sampson et al. v State of Alaska, 09/21/2001) Wrong: unjust Right: just Euthanasia: the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurab...

Deepest Quote #4

Sniper_Man_4567
The-Holy-Macrel

I am bored and it's to slow to only have one Deepest Quote debate going on for me right now, so I figured I'll release Deepest Quote #4 while Deepest Quote #3 is going on right now. This is not a debate that should be taken seriously. It is just a light-hearted competition to see who can come up with the deepest quote, so do not join expecting a fight or a heated argument. This will be my fourth installment of this debate since I really enjoy doing these debates. Guess it my "trademark" now i...
