Gay marriage should be legal.

Gay marriage should be legal. There is no valid reason homosexuals shouldn't have the same rights as as any other citizen of the United States....

Progress Supersedes Human Preservation

aburk903
Mike_10-4

This is a theoretical debate. The voting style only allows for a winner to be selected as I wanted this debate to remain philosophical and rely solely on the participant's reasoning abilities and ideals, rather than sources or simply grammatical correctness. I advocate that should a system become available that allows for progress at the cost of human emotion/free will (perhaps a computer resembling that in the movie Transcendence) that it would be desirable over preserving the species as it is...

Abortion is okay.

AnnaBelle1798
TruthHurts

There are several arguments throughout the world pertaining to thoughts about abortion. Many people say it's okay and many people say it isn't. Abortion is killing. No matter at which point in the pregnancy abortion takes place you are still taking away someone's life. People try to argue the fact that if the woman decides on abortion soon enough then it is okay due to the fact that the "baby" is not even a fetus yet. However, it is still a ball of cells which grows into a fetus or baby. Sucking...

Life is Intelligently Designed

Envisage
v3nesl

This debate challenge has been forwarded to v3nesl. Leave a message if you need debate settings/parameters changed. Intelligent Design is an umbrella term, as it encompasses several methods, or attempts to demonstrate the intelligent design of life. Pro needs to present one or more of these arguments to fulfill their BoP to demonstrate the notion of intelligent design. The format is reversed, since the accepting party has the burden of proof, therefore: 10,000 Words, 72 hours. Rou...

Evolution is a Bad Joke

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Sfaulkner

My opponent must argue that evolution is not a bad joke. To do this, my opponent is free to ignore the humor I will display in pointing out how ridiculous it is to believe in evolution, and my opponent is free to ignore the evil that has been forced on the world through wars instigated by people who believe in the basic hypothesis of evolutionary theory which are 1) Survival of the Fittest and 2) Natural selection. My opponent is also free to igno...

Pro may use their first round, but not round 5. Pro has BoP. Pro has to prove the topic right. I will argue (as con) that global warming does not exist....

man loves woman out of compulsion, not out of necessity

juras
Truth_seeker

hello! the statement is man loves woman out of compulsion and not out of necessity. i stand firmly for the motion. love developed among man and woman for the sake of their offspring. man and woman needed to come together and well have sex. but just because a man and a woman reproduces doesn't mean that they love each other. it is a social and biological compulsion borne out of concern of offspring....

Suicide should be a crime

Cermank
Romanii

(We're doing this debate again because I really wanted to debate this and couldn't complete the previous debate.) I thank Romanii for the agreeing to debate this resolution. I'm pretty sure this will be an interesting debate, especially because I don't really have any strong opinion on the topic- although I do believe this is one of the fundamental topics- views on which have an impact on individual opinions on a lot of topics involving the interactions of state and rights. First round for...
