Voting age limit should be reduced to 15-16

BoggleBros37

Yes it should be reduced as most adults are ill-informed and teenagers are still in school so they at least get bits and pieces of politics in history and other subjects. I don't see why I need to be 18 to cast a foolish vote....

Should sugary drinks cartons be reduced in size?

E.MacLeod
Sashil

In today's society many people are obese and unfit because of too many sugary drinks, such as energy drinks and fizzy (soft) drinks. Many drinks come in massive cartons, such as monster energy, and you feel like you have to drink the whole thing so it doesn't go to waste.

A 12 year old girl came home from school with a bad conduct mark on her report card. She received a switching which resulted in welts on her thighs and buttocks. After the spanking the girl came crying to out door. We let her in and my wife saw the switch marks on her. We decided to call the local child abuse hotline and report it. The neighbors tell me I should have minded my own business and the girl deserved the switching as she had been warned about her bad conduct in school. I believe...

Does God exist?

Bridget.Ann
bearski

The question still remains: Does God exist? If you talk to a scientist, he will say no..but if you ask a god~centered religious person, of course he will say yes. The question is, who's information is more reliable? Scientists have researched dinosaurs, the universe and many other things that say God doesn't exist. Religious fanatics though, just say that you have to believe in God. They say that only God can answer your questions, but you just have to trust Him. Now I ask you, who do you think...

I will argue that there should be no restrictions on what words we can use on DDO. First round is acceptance.Resolution: "The swearing filter on DDO should be removed."I am Pro, airmax1227 is Con. I accept the burden of proof. I don't need to set a ton of rules, because having a list of rules longer than anyone cares to read is silly, and I want this debate to be straightforward.This is my first step towards helping DDO. I think there are lots of problems...

Punishing 17 Year Old Children

bearski
Bridget.Ann

According to a pastor of a Christian Church, a real one, 17 year old children should be whipped with a switch to correct willful disobedience. I will be pro and take the position supporting the pastor on his views on the corporal punishment of teenagers. My opening argument is this is a matter of religious freedom and the pastor is merely advocating what is preached in the Bible.....
