Education in America

grace741
Harold_Lloyd

I am concerned about recent changes to education. I fear that certain programs such as Common Core, Middle Years Program, International Baccalaureate, and No Child Left Behind are ruining education. Children are not in school to take tests and give reports. They are in school to learn and ready themselves for the world. Also, I would like to suggest a change to the starting time and length of the average school day. Children are spending too much time in school. They are sitting in school for 9...

Would you rather have Pepsi or Coke

RedEyesUDragon
comradfish

i believe that Coke is better than Pepsi. It has better variants and a easier taste. While Pepsi is sweeter, Coke is much more appealing in terms of drinking a full glass compared to a full glass of Pepsi. This is because the more bitter taste is easier to consume taste-wise over time. In short, it taste better and has far better variants than its counterpart, Pepsi....

Does America need a National Museum of African-American History and Culture?

SnoopyCafe
sidewinder

My family recently vacationed in our nation’s capital. It was my daughter’s first D.C. trip and I was filled with anticipation that she would see one of the places that makes me beam with pride as an American. The parks, monuments, and museums are second to none and in my humble opinion, they show the best of American culture. All was going as planned right up until we visited the Natio...

Christians, is Jesus the son of God?

Alice-The-Preacher
Raistlin

Christians claim that Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) is the son of God. They say that the Scriptures have told so. And they have accepted it blindly. But is there any proof that Jesus is the son of God? Atheists do not believe in God, unless the existence of God is proved to them. They do not believe the Scriptures, because they think they has been written by humans. I believe the Bible has been corrupted. And I do not believe in Trinity unless someone proves it to me. Can you provide any pro...

Why do some people deny the existence of God? (Only Atheists)

Alice-The-Preacher
ConservativeLiberal

There are many people who believe there's no God. Why? When I tell them:" No-one has made your cars. No-one has built your houses. No-one has invented electrical equipment." They will ridicule me. They believe some people have made them. So why don't they believe Someone has created the universe which is greater than these material stuff? Don't they look at the universe? Was it created accidentally? They may say:" We can see the people who made our cars. But we can't see God." How do they exce...

Conservative side

ancientshadowman125
Harold_Lloyd

What do you think about politics, are you conservative or liberal? Do you think Obama is the worst president in U.S. history like I do? Please debate and leave ideas. I like my guns, my jobs, my country but right now I'm not so proud of it for the way it is. Letting jobs get lost, worthless and needless wars, having presidents that only intend to ruin our economy, please post...

This House Would Impose Democracy!

9spaceking
18Karl

Let's see now....the score's 1:1 (well, technically 1:0, but only because Krit agreed to a tie before I conceded). Krit defeated me in a greatly passionate topic, yet he played devil's and still lost to me in a communism debate. Today, we stand to defeat each other, in a topic that's exactly the middle--I'm not passionate about it, and he's not devil's advocate! Who will win? Will I finally beat the unbeatable 18Karl? Will Krit/karl finally set the score right and prove that he i...

Is The Trinity Biblical?

ChrisL
kasmic

(See comments for format) As always, I would like to thank my opponent kasmic for accepting this challenge. This is a topic that is very near and dear to me and I am excited to have the opportunity to defend it's truthfulness in this debate. My aim is to be as clear and as straightforward as possible with the hopes that the truth prevails and God is glorified. The thesis of this debate: Is the Trinity Biblical? I would like to take just a small space to tell you what this debate is not a...
