internet is better than books

Cheese_brain
HelloHolden

In today"s modern world, technology has a great influence on our life and time. Back in the early 19th century, when electronic devices had not been invented, the population could only use printed word such as books, posters, newspapers or magazines, to gather information. Later, in the mid 20th century, the use of computers, televisions and radios helped people to know about the incidents happening all around the world, more easily. Now, in the 21st century, the creation of internet and other d...

Social Networks are basically things like: FACEBOOK, MYSPACE, TAG, ZANGA... - They are good because they increase communication opportunities Nowadays, just calling and text messaging is not enough.

Teens should have cell phones

mavixx

Teens should have cell phones because what if something happens to them and they have no way of reaching help? What if their mom or dad falls asleep and forgets to pick them up from somewhere? What would they do if they don't have access to a phone? I don't have my own phone and I never have. I need one because my school never lets students back into the building after they leave and my dad is prone to falling asleep before picking me up and I'm not allowed to walk home. And I would ask som...

Debate.org should not demand your cell phone number to access certain features.

Metaright
BangBang-Coconut

In this debate, I will argue that needing to provide your cell phone number to access certain features is inappropriate for a website such as Debate.org. 1. Some people may not have a cell phone Not everyone has a cell phone, contrary to what most Americans (who are all close-minded in this respect) think. There is not a need for some people to have one. 2. Having to borrow the cell phone of a friend/family member is an outrageous solution This is just an unnecessary and outrageous s...

Debate.org version 3 will more likely than not be up and running by the time this debate concludes.

Logical-Master

It is within my belief that debate.org version 3 will be up and running by the time this debate concludes. To define what I mean by this, I'm saying that the chances of debate.org version 3 being accessible before or at the time this debate concludes are at least 51%. Just to insure that this won't be a wait fest, I'll go ahead and provide a contention. For now, my one and only contention shall be that the webmaster stated that version 3 would be up by the end of July. Given that it is lon...

PC is better than console for gaming

Shadowguynick
Mikal

PC is better at gaming than consoles. BoP is mine. Round 1 is acceptance only. Remember that we are arguing on whether or not PC is better than consoles. This should be nearly impossible to accept. Post a comment if you wish to debate. If you manage to accept without my consent, you lose automatically....
