Homework

Tatedabeast
Luxray2854

This is an open debate so feel free to comment and start debating me on your stance on homework. This topic is about the use of homework in schools. Many students hate obtaining homework when they have after school activities or they just are lazy. They hate the stress and cannot handle the amounts so they would rather not have any. What they don't understand is that homework is more substantial than just studying the night before a test, that is not an opinion that is a fact. The main reason wh...

There is no objective basis for morality.

AGluttonousAscetic

I am posting this debate again because this is an issue that I am interested in and I have not yet found satisfactory answers or explanations (the last debate is here: http://www.debate.org/debates/There-is-no-objective-basis-for-morality./1/). My position is that there is not an objective basis for morality; that judging or labeling an action as either moral or immoral is the result of individual belief, or opinion, or preference, or some other non-objective source. For this debate, the...

convicts facing a possible death sentence should be able to kill themselves

emily50
Milton.Pullen

Criminal punishment is a huge source of controversy in the United States. Opponents often argue that innocent people are sometimes executed and that the main motive is revenge, not true justice. Those who support the death penalty debate that the punishment offers retribution for victims of murder and is more cost efficient than offering life sentences in prison. Whether or not the death penalty will remain legal in the United States has yet to be seen. And so why should they be given the choice...

Evil must have had influence on religion(s)

deathstrokeisbrett

I am curious about this bc i never really get a straight answer. i would like my opponent to argue how it is logical that religious text was not influenced by evil in any way. Or at the very least, used for the purposes of a humans greed, control, ego, power, etc. I haven't taken a logic's course in a long time so please excuse me if i didn't do this right. I basically look at the logic like this: P1: Evil people exist P2: Evil people crave power among other narcissistic things P3: Ev...

Women in Combat

Schuman8rr
Sniper1576

I am challenging Sniper1576 to a debate about allowing women in combat. I was scrolling through debates in the voting period and I saw this one as interesting. I do not believe Con did a good job in that debate so I would like to have this debate with Sniper. First round is acceptance only. Second round is contentions ONLY. Final round is rebuttals to contentions made in round 2, you may not refute points I have made in round 3. No new contentions can be made in the final round. Good luc...
