1. When you accept the debate, state your country, and state the numbers of your armed forces (aircraft, men, ships, etc.). Use this source for military numbers ONLY, as it is the most reliable:http://www.globalfirepower.com......; 2. Each country's turn can range from about 3 days to 60 days long, so all actions must be in accordance with this time period. (DO NOT try to win in one turn! Take into account that your opponent is also a living, thinking being that can adapt to a situation.) 3....

My first contention is that it will be very hard to determine who will receive these reparations. a. according to theatlantic.com, "there are no living former slaves and their descendants are so mixed with others that it is...

I recently debate this topic with N7. (1) As is was my first debate and I am working to impove I would like to try my hand at this topic again. I did make a subtle change. The resolution is now a question. This is important to notice as I want the burden of proof to be shared in this debate. It will be my burden to argue that it is morally permissable, while my opponnet will need to argue that it is not. I have set the character limit to 6,000 and the time between rounds to 3 da...

Debate is pretty self explanatory. Rules: 1.) No semantics 2.) No trolling 3.) Forfieting is an automatic 7 point loss 4.) Cite your sources 5.) The Bible is not a valid source. You can use religious views, but you need real sources 6.) BoP is shared 7.) Start your arguement in round 1 Good luck!...
