I don't expect there to be anything wrong so I won't bother to lay out rules.I affirm that the Stablity and Security are more important than Presonal Freedom.My first and only observation is that the pursuit for stablity and security may have imperfections, but it is not my burden to defend the system, only the intent of that system.The first contention on...

Does Islam worship the same God that Jews and Christians do, as they claim to?

rolaaus

One of the underlying doctrines of Islam (not one of their "pillars") states that Muhammad was a prophet of the same God (called Yahweh) as all previous Jewish prophets. The canonized Scripture of Islam claims that it (the Quran\Koran) "confirms what came before", meaning, what you find in the older books (the Jewish Torah and Christian "Gospels") you should find "confirmed" in it. (Muslim scholars will try to tell other people that this "confirmation" only means that where the two agree, it con...

Overwatch VS TF2

Vict0rian

PRO is for Overwatch, CON is for TF2. If you accept you will defend TF2 No trolling You have to have played both games for at least enough time to comfortably play every class in the game. My position: Personally I just think Overwatch is much more polished then TF2 and that the devs of Overwatch are constantly supporting the game with updates and improvements way more then TF2. They are also testing the updates a lot better to make sure they work. The only downside with Overwat...

Round one is acceptance. Rounds two and three will be used for main arguments and refutation. In round 4 no new points can be made, but refutations can be made and you can give more support to points already made. I will argue that the recent mobile game Pok"mon Go is causing harm to our society. My opponent will argue the opposite. Thanks to my opponent and to the judges....

In this debate I'm going to argue that Christianity, as describe in the synoptic Gospels is more of a therapy for learned helplessness than a religion. Or at least that's the point of be religion....

I look fo...

Rap Battle: Trump (pro) v. Clinton (con)

RonaldTrumpkin
DebaterGood

This is self-explanatory. I, pro, will be rapping as Republican candidate Donald Trump. My opponent, con, will be rapping as Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. My opponent will start out his/her round with the first verse. Failure to do so shall result in automatic forfeiture as this is a condition of accepting this challenge. This is supposed to be fun, so please don't take it too seriously, and swearing is allowed in this battle if censored and kept to a minimum. Again, failure to do...

Are Diverse Ranges Of Students Helpful In School?

Joey888
TheBenC

Hello. Today I will be talking about whether student diversity in the classroom is important or not. I believe it to be so, mostly because I have the idea that we will eventually work with people of different races some time in our lives, sooner or later. Having diverse classrooms will help students because during school hours, they will have to work together, and they may even play together during their recess. Preparing students for the future is the motto of many schools, so prepare them by i...
