Religion has had a positive effect on society on balance.

Tommy.leadbetter
Commondebator

This is not a theological debate. No resolve can be absolute because the subject matter is to large, and the influences to hard to determine. Therefore please understand there will be more commentary than statistical arguments. Only serious debaters please, not just atheists wanting an argument....

On balance, it would be beneficial to outlaw giving people the finger in public areas.

The finger. Flipping someone off. Shooting the bird. Whatever you call it. I believe it should be outlawed in public areas. First round is acceptance onlyDefinitions: The finger- A gesture made by showing a person the back of a closed fist and extending the middle finger. This is considered to be a symbol of contempt. The majority of this gesture's meanings contain the "f" word.in public areas- around other people; in an ar...

Pre-emption vs. Deterrence (Modern Warfare)

Jingle_Bombs
DarthVitiosus

Military debate. I argue to my opponent that as a general rule for diplomacy, foreign relations, and national security policies that the use of Force should NOT be used only as a last resort. I argue exclusively that a doctrine of Pre-emption (including preemptive and preventative war) is far more effective at dismantling information age threats and safeguarding the interests of a nation as a whole than a policy of deterrence. CON must prove that deterrence theory is still...

Ultimate Team War:Corrida Colosseum

Mr.Majestic
PeacefulChaos

This seemed pretty fun. I have no idea if this is still a thing or not. I'm most likely going to be owned in this. This is Ultimate Team War. Each debater must assemble a team of five characters, and the teams will then fight to the death(ish). Since we cannot have an actual real-life battle, each debater will explain why their team is superior during this debate. DEFINITIONS Team leader: One of the debaters here, i.e. me or my opponent Team member: One of the five chosen warriors. Team...

Maat
Kaynex

I do not actually think that there should be little gun control, or at least yet. And that is why I want to hear people's opinions, such as Kaynex, and forcefully put myself against it.Guidelines1) All common guideli...

Gun Right, Again I Know, Extreme vs Withdrawn

dbushwacker
Voiceless

Hey ladies and gents :). Now I know what you're thinking," Man, not another gun debate," but today myself and my friend Voiceless will be arguing from an Extreme ( argued on behalf of myself) and an Anti ( argued on behalf of Voiceless ) firearm point of view. We hope not only to argue on the behalf of our fellow debaters, but also to come to a fair and equally recognizable compromise between the two parties. Comments are greatly encouraged along with circumstantial evidence for both sides to us...
