Nuclear Energy

Ore_Ele
twsurber

This is going to be a simple Pro Nuclear Energy vs Con Nuclear Energy. No specific resolution, just the broad subject of using nuclear energy. Burden of Proof - The BoP falls equally on both debaters to support and defend their arguments while refuting their opponent's. For example, Con can focus on negative effects to the environment, safety issues, or better alternatives rendering Nuclear obsolete, but Con cannot just disagree with everything Pro puts up (and vise versa). I will go ahead...

"sirf hangama khada karna mera maksad nahi hai, sari koshish hai ki yeih tasveer badlani chaiyae. Mere sine mein nahi to tere sine me hi sahi , ho khai bi aag lekin aag jalni chaiye,"(This is a famous hindi quote.) Social media is just like a virus which is continuously replicating itself. So Iam totally against it. This is my first debate too. Waiting for the person who accept my challenge. I shall first log you in then directly hit the notification ....

Are video game restrictions in need of changing/updating (violence)

THEVIRUS
corey561

After all of the school shootings and gun tragedies, everyone is pointing fingers. Video games are taking a lot of heat, and I believe they are singled out (it's more than one thing that got us in this mess). Still I believe there should be a change in the rules and restrictions, age related mostly, to better this issue....

NSA Domestic Surveillance

Jessie_Debate14

Resolved: The benefits of domestic surveillance by the NSA outweigh the harms. I negate this resolution for two main contentions. First, the NSA harms through an economic cost or social costs. Second, the US government doesn't play by its own rules. To start, the NSA harms the American people both economically and socially. Economically, the cost of data collection centers, such as the one in Nevada, comes out of the average man's taxes, raising them. With the taxes rising fewer people will tr...

Instagram is a useless tool of narcissism and self-promotion

af8
NikkiChak

Instagram is a useless tool which promotes a low sense of emotional intelligence, an unhealthy amount of narcissism, and societal vulnerability. It is the poison that will leak into our children's minds and leave them exposed on the Internet by disguising itself as a discrete and consequence-free app. Instagram started as a well-intentioned app, where posts of food, art, travel, and other interesting things in the world were displayed. It has turned into selfie-central, where millions of insecur...

Should cyberbullying be criminalized?

Steelerman6794

I would like to thank the person that accepts this debate, and good luck. "Sticks and stones may break my bones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." This old saying may have been true in the past, but however, in this new age of technology, words are more powerful than ever. Cyber bullying is defined as the act of tormenting, threatening, harassing, humiliating, embarrassing, or otherwise targeting someone by using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies, or cell phon...

Cell phone use while driving should stay legal activity

kpeterson53
Mirza

I want to first take this opportunity to say thank you to this forum and its participants. I look forward to this debate. Currently there are 7 states (Calif., Conn., Md., N.J., N.Y., Ore. and Wash.), D.C. and the Virgin Islands that prohibit all drivers from using hand held cell phones while driving. I wish to debate this type of legislation. I believe that cell phone use while driving should be not become illegal in any form. I oppose actually doing the action, but do not see where mak...

Should Programming be mandatory in Elementary School?

PonticComet

Rules: Wikipedia cannot be used as a source. Structure: Round 1 Define argument, Round 2: Anything, Round 3: Conclusions/Sources. Technology has become a corner stone of modern society and yet American students are not taught how the technology works. During the years 2005-2009 information technology classes were electives in high school for any individual that wanted to learn about it. It is becoming the largest growing field in America to get jobs yet only a small portion of students even...
