Should depression be treated as seriously as physical ailments?

StormySkies
gabesnyds

I'm starting this debate again, since Aerogant's account was closed so he can no longer bother me. In many schools, depression and other mental illness are not treated as seriously as physical sickness and injury (such as the flu, or a broken leg). Despite the level of depression or anxiety a student is having, they are still obligated to go to school, which can be seriously detrimental to the mental health, and eventually even physically unhealthy. The same can go for adults as well, when...

Hello, My names Ethan Cannabis, its a drug we have all heard of even tried some of us. Yes it is a "illegal" drug in most places but should it ?

Jesus is a myth, based on other pagan religions.

Dr_Obvious
PinValentine

Some people claim that Jesus is just a myth, and point out that He is similar to older pagan deities. They claim that He is, in fact, based on them. I disagree. Pro must accept the burden of proof. Note that this is not about whether or not Jesus actually existed. This debate is strictly about the Biblical Jesus. My contention is that He is unique, in all of history. Pro must show, conclusively, that Jesus is based on other religious writings, and beliefs. Four rounds. Round one: accepta...

Oral transmission in the Bible is reliable

Truth_seeker
Sagey

Reliability will be measured by the ability to recall memory to the point where the essentially entire message is preserved. I will provide evidence for why oral transmission used to pass the Bible (particularly the New Testament) is reliable (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_gospel_traditions). first round acceptance...

Dinosaurs Lived With People

GarretKadeDupre
TruthHurts

I will be arguing that live dinosaurs existed at the same time humans did. I may use the term dinosaur interchangeably with mesosaur or pterosaur. I do not mean birds; that would be abusive use of the term. Voters should exercise their discretion when deciding if my use of the term dinosaur or human becomes abusive.
