Contender's Pick

RevNge
Wylted

I'm starting to get pissed because everyone's assuming I'm a dumbass (partly true), and I've decided that maybe I should focus more on the debating aspect of the site, as I think most people only think of me as a social butterfly, and am pretty sure lots of people would want to ban me if they could. Whoever accepts; make sure you have a topic ready. If you're arguing for Pro, post your constructive case first. If you're Con, simply state your topic and only acceptance. Depending on the top...

The War on Christmas Exists

Saska
Raisor

I am arguing the Con side for this debate. It is up to Pro to prove that a war on Christmas actually exists. Round 1: Pro will begin opening arguments in Round 1. Since I am placing the BOP on my opponent here, I am giving Pro both the first and last words. Round 2: Con's opening argument and Pro's rebuttal. Round 3: Rebuttals. Round 4: Closing statements/conclusion. No new arguments from Pro in their final round. Definitions: War - an organized effort by a large organization...

Was Noahs flood real?

tyler_huebert
Wylted

Some people, such as Athiest or Evolutionist, will say that Noah's flood never existed. They say it could never happen because there is not enough water to make a global flood or the Earth would have changed. I am going to show you why I believe it did happen and that there is a God that you will stand before when you die and you will either go to Heaven or Hell....

Ultimate Team War:Corrida Colosseum

Mr.Majestic
PeacefulChaos

This seemed pretty fun. I have no idea if this is still a thing or not. I'm most likely going to be owned in this. This is Ultimate Team War. Each debater must assemble a team of five characters, and the teams will then fight to the death(ish). Since we cannot have an actual real-life battle, each debater will explain why their team is superior during this debate. DEFINITIONS Team leader: One of the debaters here, i.e. me or my opponent Team member: One of the five chosen warriors. Team...

The belief that the sacraments convey grace is reasonable based on the Bible and historical evidence

dsjpk5
james14

I would like to thank James14 for suggesting this debate topic. I look forward to a fruitful discussion. I will be taking the position that the sacraments are one of the ways God conveys grace to us. To support my claim, I will be appealing to both scripture and the testimony of the early Church. Grace: the free and unearned favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings. Grace is also the "stuff" God gives you in order for you to do supernatural a...

phiLockeraptor
Sssomeone

Philosophical rap battle. Con is rapping for deontology, while Pro is rapping for Utilitarianism. Personal slights against philosophers themselves are allowed but not preferred over ideological rap. 20 lines are allowed. First round is acceptance only. Everything else is fair game....

Is God better for humanity?

Jnaejnae
Beginner

This will not be a debate on whether god exists or not. It is whether it effects us and our future for the better or worse. To clarify I am talking about Christianity, Islam, and, Judaism as the main "god". I would like a nice and mature discussion. I personally am kinda on both sides but I went with con, so I am defiantly not completely one sided. I am an atheist and I think it isn't right for someone to lie to themselves to make themselves happy and to go against modern science and progres...

Should Same-Sex Marriage be Legal in the US? II

Bennett91
EndlessVoid

Round 1 is for acceptance and it would be nice if my opponent wrote a brief (3 or 4 sentences) summary of their position. The topic of this debate is to question whether or not Gay Marriage should be legal in all of the US. This is a debate about legality and civil rights, not a debate about how gays are gross therefore don't deserve rights. I don't want to limit the range of possible arguments my opponent may bring however arguments based on Religion, and "morals" that stem there from, must...
