Seems pretty obvious that unless you're blind, you can see water, right? I say wrong. Let's make this quick. Feel free to put forward your argument in round 1. Good luck....

Should Nazi War Criminals Be Prosecuted?

xxlexx16
judaism

For my English Honors II class, we're having a debate based on a topic in a book we just recently read a novel by Jodi Picoult, The Storyteller. It's basically another Holocaust experience-based book, but it also includes more modern day subjects. The majority ends up being about prosecuting Nazi War Criminals, although it's modern day. I'm on the Con side for this topic in the debate, and was wondering if anybody had good rebuttals against the Pro side, or examples I could use for the Con side'...

Dissociative Identity Disorder is Real

Arganger
masse

FollowerofChrist1955 is the only one I want accepting this. For voters: http://www.debate.org/debates/Dissociative-Identity-Disorder-is-Real/1/ I forgot about the debate as my memory sucks. I am re challenging you as to finish the debate. The idea of everything being "Unspecified Mental illness" as I said before, just doesn't allow for proper treatment. And you are very off topic. I have been in the mental health system for years as a client, and can tell you that though some people...

Is nationalism positive or negative for the state and people who have such ideology in power?

Alek_aa2002
Lecromi

Nationalism by definition is loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially : a sense of national consciousness exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups. Of course there are different types of nationalism but for argument's sake let's say that we argue about nationalism based on country,culture and ethnicity. We are not arguing about the state of government as I believe t...

Competition to Create the Most Useless Superpower

farmerjump1
Swiz

Please clearly state the superpower you have created and be sure to explain why it is the most useless superpower. You can make a cool superpower but put extreme limitations on it that make it useless. (Examples: levitation but only a centimeter off the ground, etc.) Each argument limited to 3 superpowers with explanations each. Judging is based on whoever can come up with the wittiest, funniest and most useless superpower. I will start my argument here. (No rebuttals) 1. The ability to...

Is the World headed toward another World War?

Nd2400
SageistSage

There are many areas in the world that war could break out. Such as in Asian, in the South China Sea, the northern part of Europe, or even in Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia or other parts of the middle east, plus we have the North Korea crisis, if the US and China don't handle this correctly it could trigger a war with each other. I know what happened in world war 1 was a build up before there was an actual war like in 1908 there were signs the world was headed toward a world war. Then after a few ye...

Is hacking a good thing?

ptolemy2002
FanboyMctroll

When you hack, you are stealing information from somebody. Even if you are hacking into a hacker's computer, that does not make it right. Stealing is wrong no matter what. Taking something that is not yours is completely unacceptable. This applies to governments and developers too. The data stored in public databases should be limited and only used by the users to prevent hackers from getting the information. Therefore, hacking is a bad thing no matter what situation you are in....

is God real?

God is real. If God did not create the earth then who did? Life is too complex to create itself. Something can't come from nothing. That's how we know that God exists, and he is how something came from nothing....
