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...

Solarman1969 refuses to debate me because he knows he can't win

rwebberc
Solarman1969

First off, I would like clarify what I mean by "win". Obviously, when Solarman takes up a debate, he knows he's generally not going to win the vote because of his far right wing points of view. However, he does seem to take some sort of satisfaction in finding opponents who don't know how to deal with his belligerence or who provide relatively weak arguments. I have debated Solarman in the past, and instead of responding to his personal attacks, I took his arguments at face value. I responded wi...

The United States of America is the greatest country in the world.

Over the past several years I've been told by numerous people that the US is the greatest country in the world. However, I've never heard why. I don't know what's so great about us, but maybe you do. (Greatest - Highest in quality; Superior to others;)...

The Bible is an immoral bit of utter crap.

Tatarize

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...

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

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....

Psilocybin ("magic") mushrooms should be legal in the United States.

Danielle
FalseReality

Here's one for the Conservatives ;) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Thomas Jefferson once said, "If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Today, the manufacturing, buying, posession and distribution of psilocybin mushrooms is illegal in all but 2 states: Florida and New Mexico. I support the legalization of thi...

Circumsicion is necessary and ethical.

buletman
jemual

I believe that circumcision is genital mutilation. It has been shown that it is an effective way to prevent certain diseases, but proper hygiene is just as effective. So this then leads me to ask why take away a male's foreskin before he is even allowed to make the decision himself? He will never know what it was like to have those nerve endings, never know what it's like to have a non-mutilated penis. Circumcision on males does not create impotence, so what is the matter with having a few le...
