tejretics
lannan13

This is for the final round of Famous's Tournament, and the first round of Bsh1's Tournament. "Carbon tax" refers to "a tax levied on the carbon content of fuels." Lannan should start arguing in Round 1 and waive the final round (posting merely "no round as agreed")....

The Big Bang is very possible - With a few things taken into consideration

LordDeathera
creationtruth

I have come up with a couple of theories that may just prove that the Big Bang could have happened. Note that these are very new and may be slightly incomplete, so some things may not make a lot of sense but I'll do my best. Note that I will also be disagreeing with the likes of Stephen Hawking in certain areas. First round will be for formal introductions and greetings, acceptance of the debate and general introduction to what you will be arguing. Other rounds are up to the person on how the...

Debate.org should sponsor a Presidential Debate with the candidates on various issues.

rezleader
Udel

As part of the race for President of the United States, major candidates should be forced to participate in a Debate.org on a series of issues. This would allow the public to see how the candidates express themselves through written communication, how they reason and what opinions they take. If it were opened up to the public as a whole for comments, it might do a great deal of good to inform the electorate. (Please comment if you agree and want to actually make this happen)...

Should strict constructionists be forced to change the Constitution BEFORE the presidential election

rezleader
NateLooney

The Constitution of the United States has been interpreted strictly by countless Supreme Court Justices and Republican ideologues. If you stand for Citizens United and a hardcore interpretation of the 2nd Amendment that says that guns control should be off the table, shouldn't you then argue that Hillary Clinton or any women in the nation should NOT be allowed to run for President since the Constitution, in every area where it refers to the President, refers to his gender as male. If you stan...
