Same Sex Marriage

theisticscuffles

This is a debate on the legal institute of marriage, and the application to same-sex couples. First round is acceptance. Rules: (1.) DO NOT involve religion. Doing so will result in immediate forfeit of the debate. (2.) Keep it friendly. Coexistence is the key to these debates, keep it civilized. (3.) Do not include personal morals. Keep this debate purely intellectual and political. Comment below to apply, I will choose an opponent. This debate should be impossible to accept, doing so...

Does the way a person dress affect the way the world sees them?

jkeith

All in all, should the way a person dresses be taken in account on that person's respect level, the way society should treat that person, and how that person treats them-self. Does that way/style of dress the person uses affect the way the world sees them? I think yes. Think about it, a prostitute dresses one way and a female in corporate America dresses another way. Two totally different walks of life. I believe that the clothes on a person indicates the respect they have for themselves and for...

Police in Baltimore should not wear riot gear.

Wylted
Arter

The rounds are 3 hours long and have a 2,000 character limit. So before accepting, keep that in mind. I'm willing to negotiate down to 60 minutes if the timing of acceptance is right. Full Resolution: The police in Baltimore should not wear riot gear, unless there is a high likelihood of a riot actually breaking out in the particular area they occupy. We will not be defining high likelihood at all. Just use common sense to determine what that means. So no semantics and let's just debate wh...

Global warming is an issue.

I feel that global warming is a huge issue, it is destroying our earth! It is harming animals and our environment. Without putting a stop to this, there could be many more problems in later time. We are already using so much of the Earth and destroying it by using too many natural resources, but by causing more global warming, we are making it harder for the Earth to catch up with us using all its sources. Its hard for the Earth to support us so we need to keep that in mind and make sure we are...

Atheism Contains Those With the Same Hatred as Many Theist Beliefs

First round acceptance. I will argue that atheists are just as guilty of being judgmental and closed-minded as theistic beliefs, such as Catholicism, are accused of. Definitions: Hatred: A feeling of anger resulting in biased behavior towards the other party Theistic: A belief system based off spiritual beings i.e. Catholicism, Satanism, and Islam....

corporal punishment

audryflaten
mishtitheindianpugilist

Should corporal punishment be be banned or kept in schools, daycares, etc? I am a student and I think that with the way children/teens act in today's society they need to be disciplined in some way shape or form. Give me your opinions, should we bring it back or not? If we have more punishment in schools and daycares just think how much more respect kids would give their parents. I think it should be brought back, and kept ....
