Khan needs to be kicked off of this Website

Danielle

To put it simply, Khan is an idiot. He is not contributing to anyone and is probably sitting at his house right now, typing "I am an Idiot" several thousand times on Microsoft word. Please somebody take this moron off of this site....

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

hattopic
iamsano

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;)...

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...

Hillary Clinton Will Make A Bad President

Phil
wryan

Hillary Clinton would be a horrible president for several reasons: 1. Her economic policies of wealth redistribution will destroy the economy. Furthermore, the second she abolishes capital gains the markets will crash. 2. Her national health care system will lower the quality of health care for all Americans. 3. She has no guiding principles. Instead, she makes policy based on polls and what gives here the best public image. 4. Mrs. Clinton has never managed any organization of signi...

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...

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...

Gay Marriage Should Be Legal in the United States

JustCallMeTarzan
InquireTruth

This debate was issued to InquireTruth... twice. He let it expire both times. Now I open it up to the public to defend his position because he apparently will not do so. *************************************************** The proposition on offer is that Gay Marriage should be legal in the United States. For the purposes of debate, "Gay Marriage" will be held to mean marriage between two individuals of the same sex. This definition arises from two segments of relevant law common to most...

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...

The Trinity Doctrine: Three Different Persons, All Equally God, All the Same God

Renzzy
PublicForumG-d

Fist of all, I would like to apologize for the unusually long title. I needed more space in order to encompass the topic I would like to discus clearly. Thank you to whoever accepts this debate! The Trinity Doctrine is a rather controversial topic, and there are amy people on both sides of the argument. I believe that The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. I believe that they are all equally God, and that they all make up one God. With that, I will allow my oppon...

Banning the death penelty.

italia4356
lvisman96

If we sentence a person to death then we are no better then the criminal and deserve to be punished our selves. We need to set an example for people. By letting the person live we show that we are above that persons current state of mind and stand by what we preach that taking a persons life is wrong....
