Animals should NOT be kept in zoos,

sahaam

I believe that animals should NOT be kept in zoos unless they are injured or unhealthy but then when they are better they will be sent back out in the wild. An African man was put in a cage at a zoo because he was black and people believed he was close to being a monkey rather than a human, people than found that wrong. Even though he was fed well and he could move around people understood what he was saying and how he felt because he was their own species he was still human. Eventually people...

USA should have universal background checks while it may be disputed the exact number, the commonly cited stat is that ninety percent of people support background checks. there's plenty of potential here- over 40% of gun sales involve no background checks. at the point of sale, back ground checks stop tons of people.... http://www.timesdispatch.com/news/state-regional/stats-show-background-checks-are-effective/article_ac6626fd-8bf5-55d7-83cf-d464e379000a.html what about the idea t...

Evolutionary science is a metaphysical research programme

bigtown
Burncastle

Hi, I want to argue the position that evolutionary 'science' is really a metaphysical research programme, and consequently should and cannot be considered or taught as science in state sponsored education. If it is to be taught, it ought to be confined to religious studies along with creation. I will take the PRO position and BoP is 100% on me. In accepting this debate you are conceding to the fact that we live in an entirely physical realm and that through science, it has been proved bey...

governments should implement a 'fat tax'

dairygirl4u2c
Max.Wallace

the idea, that heart disease and other bad health effects from being fat causes an increase in health care costs, in a country that is heavily subsidized by the government. so, whatever it costs should be made up for in fat taxes. my understanding is right now the costs of being fat to the government are not sufficiently made up for in sales taxes. if it were, it would be more prohibitive for over eaters, so they would't eat and be lazy as much, and it'd be ensure the government is getting re...

Should Same-Sex Marriage be Legal in the US?

Bennett91
cwt002

Round 1 is for brief acceptance and laying down ground rules and definitions. The topic of this debate is to question whether or not Gay Marriage should be legal in all of the US. This is a debate about legality and civil rights, not a debate about how gays are gross therefore don't deserve rights. I don't want to limit the range of possible arguments my opponent may bring however arguments based on Religion, and "morals" that stem there from, must meet a rigorous criteria in order to be seen...
