What came first, chicken (pro) or egg (con)?

Armadillosushi
MrJosh

First round is acceptance. I believe the egg came first, and that I can back up my claim with science. You can use any information from any source you like, although the legitimacy may be called into question (for example, basing your argument on a religious text that says the chicken came first)....

THBT denial of rights of an individual can be made only if it infringes upon the rights of another.

UNSTABLE
Mike_10-4

I think that a person's right should be denied only if it infringes upon the rights of another and not when it causes harm to those who exercise the rights themselves.Like smoking should only be banned if it affects others(like passive smokers). But a person should be allowed to smoke if they want in private without affecting others...

cwt002

Round 1 is for brief acceptance and laying down ground rules and definitions. The topic of this debate is to question whether or not Gay Marriage should be legal in all of the US. This is a debate about legality and civil rights, not a debate about how gays are gross therefore don't deserve rights. I don't want to limit the range of possible arguments my opponent may bring however arguments based on Religion, and "morals" that stem there from, must meet a rigorous criteria in order to be seen...

Slavery can be justified

ChosenWolff
KhalifV

First round is acceptance. I will attempt to prove that "slavery can be justified". Slavery will be defined as the "Act of owning slaves". A slave will be defined as a " a person who is excessively dependent upon or controlled by something". I am taking this unpopular position to test an unpopular argument. This debate doesn't reflect my views. It is done for the purpose of discussion and higher understanding. R4 will be a "no round" unless I decide to extend it.
