People with AIDS should be shot into the space.

Geekis_Khan
HadenQuinlan

First, I'd like to ask that people vote off of better argumentation, rather than what they personally believe think, even if the PRO seems a bit totalitarian. AIDS is a big epidemic, yet we still have no cure. So, what is the best way to eliminate the disease? Complete eradication. Contentions: 1.) By shooting people with AIDS into the space, we will almost completely get rid off the disease. Of course, it will still lurk in the dark corners and such, but for the most part, people will no...

Tatarize
TwinDragon

Puppies are cute. I like puppies. People like puppies. Rainbows like puppies too. The word puppies starts with a 'q'. I have seen a number of puppies, all of them have been cute. 2 + 2 = 7. * Under no circumstances will my arguments exceed the above list of arguments against the topic....

Sexual relations with animals should be allowed

pallkvaran
candice

Let me start by making it clear that this debate is not some sort of a sick joke. Sexual relations with animals have been a part of the human culture for a long time. Some nations allow their citizens to have sexual relations with specific animals, others do not. I´m not talking about underdeveloped countries in this context, examples of countries that allow this sort of behavior are Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Russia and Germany. I would never have sexual relation with other animal...

The Bible is an immoral bit of utter crap.

mongeese

In the comments of the debate http://www.debate.org/debate/8102/ : DATCMOTO's offered a counterargument to my claim that thought-crimes were immoral by citing some thought crimes in the Bible. I contended that the that was not an argument against my position but a splendid argument that "the Bible is an immoral bit of utter crap." You claimed that this was offensive: As proper conduct dictates I now offer this debate on two points to be proved: 1) The Bible is an immoral bit of utte...

Gay Marraige should be legal and accepted in all of the USA.

Before I begin my argument, I would like to ask everyone who is voting in this debate to vote not based upon your own opinion. Please do not vote for one of us just because your opinions support one of us. Vote for the person who advanced their arguements better and rebutted their opponent's arguments better. Thank you. Now to the actual debate. My first argument is that gay people are still people. Just because one part of them is different, and they prefer people of the same gender, does...

Scientists have no proof that humans are responsible for a significant amount of global warming.

HandsOff
TheRaven

There, I said it. And it's true. Even scientists who "believe" humans are largely repsonsible for recent temperature changes will admit they do not have definitive proof. The PR campaign of the left claiming scientists "have reached" a consensus implies the research is finally complete. However, a "consensus" is only 51 percent, and no one is stopping to consider that legitimate science is a product of fact and not popularity or speculation in the absence of conclusive evidence. The liberals and...

We should take action against Global Warming

HandsOff

There is clear evidence that the world is warming. There is no reason to believe it won't continue warming. This will be disastrous for many people and other species in the world. Therefore it is hypocritical and unethical not to act against it....

Using a time machine to go back and kill Hitler would be a bad idea.

Kinesis
Maikuru

I thank my opponent for the chance to debate. My opponent may not argue from semantics, as it is clear what the resolution states, although an exception may be made if he/she comes up with a particularly interesting objection to the resolution. Firstly, an argument against the viability of time travel itself; -- The Classic Paradox -- First, imagine time travel were made possible, and somebody travels back in time in order to meet their grandfather, whom they never knew. Now, say that...

Brittney Spears needs to have serious counseling.

i-win-347
Yraelz

Brittney Spears, one of the best pop singers in the 90's is spiraling downward to fast and dangerous and will soon crash. She's not going to shave her head again or go to her child possession hearings but she is in a unstable emotional state where she could do some serious damage. Maybe not to us but to her self. Everyone looks at her like a mentally challgened person and the way she acts to get attention it's justifiable. So I'm in firm affirmation for sending Brittney to get some counseling....
