Young Americans should be required to spend at least one year in public service.

ShannonM

It is completely unreasonable to have young Americans complete such a task because if America is built of a single word: FREEDOM, then why are we not allowing the future of America choose whether or not to go into the field of public service for a year. It would not be freedom if we, the government, MAKE the young do this responsibility. According to Google, freedom means the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Although, young Americans are not leg...

Gender equality should never exist

Raypolo

There has been lots of campaigns for gender equality, specifically to make women as equal as men. In every part of the country, whether Africa or Europe or America, whichever continent you come from you must have heard or read about woman empowerment.

gsairam
Atheist-Independent

The Bible morally contradicts itself

speechlessspeaker
daley

There are many practical flaws in our present day Christian bible. I believe that denying that there is no higher power is a hard idea to explain, and this is not my personal beliefs. However I find the belief of the actual historical accuracy of the bible as well as its many moral contradictions an even more far-fetched idea to find truth in. This debate will focus on the contradiction of free will. I'm not going to sit here and just post scripture the entire debate. if the need arises then I w...
