There is good reason to believe in the, inherent, Intellectual superiority of the Mongoloid 'Race'

First of all let me state that the resolution was suggested by con in the forum and while i think it is a very apt resolution I have a slight problem with the quotation marks around the word: race. I suspect this issue of is race real or is it just a social construct will become a point of contention in the debate, however i might just be reading too much into it - i will let con enlighten the readers and I as to what he meant by the quotation marks. By saying inherent I mean to say that gene...

Is Homosexuality wrong?

nerdyandnotsoproud

This question has been raised in many different forms, on this site. Mostly in the form of "Should gay marriage be allowed?". But never to my knowledge has it been discussed directly. So the questions stands. "Is Homosexuality wrong?" Homosexuality is not wrong. 1)Many people, automatically bring up the bible, when faced with this question. And thats fine, for those that believe the bible. But, what about those that dont? Sure the bible has been used to set the foundations of countries an...

"Wealthy" is a relative term, rather than an absolute one.

Thanks in advance to Cody for accepting this challenge. It was on a forum thread that this issue first came up as a possible debate topic for Cody and myself. Ragnar_Rahl first made the claim that "wealth is absolute", but when I challenged this contention it was Cody who jumped in to defend the objectivist perspective. http://www.debate.org/forums/politics/topic/6124/18/ This is basically a semantics debate, being as it is concerned with what words mean. However I don't anticipate t...

Before i begin i would like to say that i am not a rascist,nor Nazi,etc...and this is based on what i see in my school and schools nationwide.

Gay Marrige

Our current religious systems and majority religions tend to be very much against same sex relationships. These as a general rule teach against it and call it many things, unnatural, sin, and sometimes try to break people of the habit so to speak. While all of this is accepted belief it is not necessarily correct. Marriage is a social institution that brings many privileges, not least of which is the financial aspect. The governments of most countries offer tax breaks to married couples, as...

The death penalty is archaic and should be abolished.

Toored
megan91509

The death penalty is archaic and immoral. We are no longer living in the dark ages and as such our society should be at a point where we don't punish death with more death. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Not only is the death penalty crude and barbaric but statistically speaking it does not even deter crime. States with no death penalty actually have lower murder rates than states with the death penalty. Some people are bad, there is no getting around that. However, it is...
