Abortion

a_janis1

consider abortion to be one of the most important issues facing our world today. The reason being is because abortion either is the legalized killing of innocent human beings or abortion is not the killing of a human being. There is no in-between. I will stand against abortion in every case with one exception. That one exception is when the mother is guaranteed to die during child birth or if both the fetus and the mother will die during child birth. I argue that abortion is the killing of an...

Enact A Racist Ban On Burger King

DeuceKaboose

Hello to all, I am known as provideoman123, Master Debater.During my few visits to the American restaurant chain and franchise known as Burger King, I have had mostly positive encounters. However there were some groups of people who always made the experience there unpleasant and uncomfortable. I am proposing adding a security guard to the door of such establishments, to prevent certain groups of people from entering. This is not done to offend the person, but rather to enhance...

Evolution.

darthebearnc

Evolution was introduced in 1859 in the book called, "Origin of Species," by Charles Darwin. This is a known fact (1). My Question is when did Evolution start? Did Evolution start prior to 1859? Please show proof? Note: This would be in direct opposition to Darwin. Evolution does not have any dates, because the theory of evolution states the earth is billions and billions of years old. Which is in direct contradiction with time as a whole. With the record of time kept by the Authors of the...

Voters: This debate must end in tie. Before anyone says it, I will state this clearly: I AM NOT BEING PRETENTIOUS OR BRAGGING. This is a legitimate question that I truly believe is correct. However, I have started this debate due to others not agreeing with my statements. When I Say Everyone, I Mean Most People. Voters, you know who is the strongest(me). Voters: This debate must end in tie....

Religion has no place in a Modern Society

Kodiax
CaptainAhab

I would consider myself a respecting anti-theist, which means I believe religion should not exist, HOWEVER I fully respect the right of others to worship at their leisure. I believe religion has its merits, however, the negatives seem far more numerous. In this debate, I will be trying to argue that religion does not -overall- positively effect a developed society and only hinders its progression forward. Religion can cause friction among members of society that, otherwise, would be just fin...

Animal rights

Samaseemo
Conservative12

Animals are the ones who save our lives not the other way around. If you EVER learned something new, it will be about how animals can also have emotional attachments. A man raised a lion cub and when the lion grew too old, it had to be kept in a reserve. Later on, the man visited the reserve, saying he wanted to see his old friend. The workers their said that the lion probably won't remember him. But what happened? Oh, yes! The lion, now the alpha of his pack, ran toward the man to nuzzle him! S...

Hunting for food should be kept legal

MikeySweet
usi_debsoc

In this debate I will defend the age-long tradition and necessity of hunting for food (This does not include trophy hunting, which is a completely different topic) For round 1, you may choose to make an opening argument or just say "accept." The Con will have to prove that hunting for food and sustenance is wrong....
