Birth is an arbitrary dividing line between personhood and non-personhood.

Weave77
ArcTImes

It is my contention that birth is an arbitrary dividing line between personhood and non-personhood, and thus, there is no moral difference between abortion and infanticide.This is my first DDO debate, and I would like to thank my opponent in advance for accepting this debate. I will be arguing as Pro. The first round is for acceptance, and we shall begin the discussion in round two.Personhood: The quality or condition of being an individual huma...

Resolved: the Zombie Apocalypse Will Happen

AngelofDeath
Sswdwm

Be it resolved that: the zombie apocalypse will happen. I would like this to be a serious debate, so no trolling please. My only rule is that my opponent cannot use Max Brooks as a legitimate source, since he doesn't have a PhD on zombies. If this does happen, however, I request that voters please take note and vote for me. Format: Round 1, acceptance Round 2, claims Round 3, rebuttals Round 4, rebuild and voting issues Although this is a serious debate, i want all involved t...

Does God Exist?

Gonzosvita
Huskysleddogslover

Does God Exist? I will make an assumption at the start; my opponent will prove his/her god via the Kalam Cosmological argument and the teleological argument. In order for me to succeed at refuting the pro position I must accept their logical arguments as plausible. This does not mean I concede the debate, only that I am willing to accept the logical arguments that will be used as evidence for the existence of a god. While this does put me in a vulnerable position I am comfortable with this arran...

"There is Only One Race, The Human Race" Is an Incorrect Statement

Hetaera
RyuuKyuzo

There is only one living RACE: Homo Sapien Sapien AND NO, I am not just repeating myself for giggles. The specific type of human YOU are today falls within that category, ALL OTHER RACES of humans are EXTINCT. Any reference to hair colour, eye colour, SKIN colour, is merely a reference to PHENOTYPE (http://dictionary.reference.com...) which is in reference to observable traits not to be confused entirely with GENOTYPE; however there is in fact a relationship between the two. To understand...

Cascadia, should we be our own nation?

Figure-it-out
AirplanesAndBaseball

Cascadia was the nation we would call Washington, Oregon, British Colombia, southern Alaska, northern California, and parts of Idaho (may include parts of Alberta, Montana, and Wyoming). Scottish naturalist named David Douglas, during the 1820's, the root of the term Cascadia was first brought up. We would have our own independence. Being our own nation is due to our different geographical, cultural, economical, and environmental of the other parts of North America. Cascadia is slowly develop...

Puppy Mills

AnimalsDeserveBetter
Sukati

Puppy Mills are just crude... They keep the dogs in small cages their whole life. Many are starved and they get terribly sick. If this isn't enough for you people to realize how cruel Puppy Mills are then... Maybe you just have a cold heart. I'm sorry for any hurt feelings this may cause....
