Organized Religion is Harmful and Corrupt

npt2
Bribri10114

Organized Religion is Harmful and Corrupt. I am not against spirituality. Hope and Faith are driving factors in some people's life. They are able to overcome obstacles in the belief that they are ultimately pursuing "good". However, when it becomes more about meeting and the offering plate being passed around, problems start. What is good for one- is it good for any other or all? Organized Religion is Harmful. The more we learn about our natural world, the more we know that we are fund...

Apple Is Better Than Android

imheretodebate321

Apple is one of the best phone products ever. Android includes many different phones, so apple is awesome. Apple has siri, and has a home button the size of your thumb. Apple phone products are constantly getting better, so apple will be superior. The first round is only acceptance. Round 2 is for arguments. Round 3 is for rebuttals. Round 4 is for conclusion. The best of luck to my opponent, hope you have a good debate with me.......

The city of Chicago being visible from the opposite shore, proves the earth is not a sphere.

Ramshutu2
Edlvsjd

One of Edlvsjd core arguments made in support of Flat earth (and against a spherical earth) is that the City of Chicago is visible from the opposite shore of Lake Michigan, something he states is not possible on a spherical earth, and effectively demonstrates that the earth is flat. This debate is Edlvsjd's opportunity to argue that this is the case. Rules: - As Edlvsjd is going to be supporting his claim, his FIRST round should be used for opening arguments; Edlvsjd should write "Last...

Animal Testing.

jdwest9817

New medicines require testing because researchers must measure both the beneficial and the harmful effects of a compound on a whole organism. A medicine is initially tested in vitro using tissues and isolated organs, but legally and ethically it must also be tested in a suitable animal model before clinical trials in humans can take place. The animal tests provide data on efficacy and safety. They not only identify potential safety concerns, but also determine the doses which will be given to...

Abortion should in most cases be illegal.

frankfurter50

As this was a direct challenge, if you don't agree with the con side of this argument you can just decline. a few rules before I state my position. 1. no argumentum ad hominems (personal attacks and the like.) 2. no new arguments in final rebuttals per standard debate rules. 3. standard debate rules regarding dropped arguments apply. The first rounds will just be for acceptance, after that comes arguments (and for the second speaker attacks on my case.) I believe that abortion should...

Death Penalty

luis_yt
TheOneFootTallBrickWall

We reserve the death penalty in the United States for the most heinous murders and the most brutal and conscienceless murderers. This is not, as some critics argue, a kind of state-run lottery that randomly chooses an unlucky few for the ultimate penalty from among all those convicted of murder. Rather, the capital punishment system is a filter that selects the worst of the worst... Put another way, to sentence killers like those described above to less than death would fail to do justice bec...

HEY! After some consideration (like 2 seconds), I've decided to do a rap battle; having not 'rap battled' before I'm a complete newbie to it but I thought I'd give it a try.No particular rules apply besides no forfeits, and I'd rather battle with a member who's done them before and is competitive. Comment if interested. First round is acceptance btw ;) &nbs...

Should self-defense classes be required in high school?

sarahgrace16
Deonatus

If self-defense classes were required for high-schoolers to take, I believe that there wouldn't be as many cases of sexual assault and violence against women. Sexual assault is as prominent as ever in today"s society. According to the Journal of College Counseling, "1 out of every 4 women on college and university campuses had been victims of sexual assault or attempted sexual assault". Another article by the American Journal of Public Health states that, "It is estimated that in their lifetime...
