Should gay & lesbian marriages be legalized in India?

BiggBoss
Kc1999

Today India is a powerful country in various fields, but still there are various issues related to same sex marriages. Recently, the Supreme Court of India ruled homosexuality to be a criminal offence . MY CASE :- Gay or a lesbian does not change the fact that they are human and they have equal rights too. though, sometimes it may be shocking for one to meet such a personality at first, but later it will subside and we will get used to it. we must not look down upon people such because they...

Devyani Khobragade: US was wrong, but India is being immature !!

BiggBoss
NiqashMotawadi3

Devyani Khobragade treated her houseworker as a wage slave and expected to get away with it. That is ridiculous, as is her lawyer's excuse that she can't afford to pay the minimum wage ($1600/month). if you can't pay for the child, don't have one. The US treatment of her is ridiculous as well. She is a diplomat and deserves a few extra perks, being detained diplomatically and not having strip searches for a crime that wouldn't require it. If she were caught smuggling something, a cavity searc...

9/11 was not an inside job.

darryshan
Free_Th1nker

The evidence for 9/11 being an inside job is factually deceiving, and requires many assumptions. For example, claims that the buildings fell at freefall speeds ignore the obvious debris that fell faster than the collapse, seen in this image: http://i.imgur.com/ny6BLbn.png Also, claims that WTC 7 was destroyed in a controlled demolition do not take into account any of the information from the NIST report which explored WHY the buildings fell. The investigation showed that the load bearing s...

George Zimmerman Acted In Self-Defense Against Trayvon Martin

Spedman
psyduck

I will not be making my opening argument this round which is something I don't normally do when I debate. I will merely say that I watched the majority of the George Zimmerman trial (I'm a Florida resident, it was on local news), and I think the evidence was overwhelming that Zimmerman acted in self-defense. I would personally like to debate with someone who actually watched the majority of the trial (a few clips does not count). I would also ask that any racial prejudices be cast aside in this...

Resolved: The average intelligence of a Fox News Anchor is = or < the average intelligence of a rock

imabench
Wallstreetatheist

The resolution is pretty straightforward, Pro must argue why the average Fox News anchorman is about as smart as a rock or less than that of a rock, while the con must argue that Fox News anchormen are capable of intellectual thought, reasoning, and logical conclusions based on evidence. First round is acceptance only :D...

Masonic(7,74) Code(4): GOD=7_4, 7/4=July 4th. Freemasons laid dow the BIGGEST code in history!

farm3r

GOD=7_4 whereas G is the 7th letter, a circle, D is 4. The ancients observed the 7 Classical Planets: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and 4 of thee don't cast shadows on Earth (Venus does)/4 can't be easily seen during the day (Venus can be). There are 4 lunar phases roughly 7 days (~7.4 days) each varying due to apogee and perigee. Lunar year + 7 day week +4 days = 365 day solar year. Mars has a 47 year cycle where it retu...

Ariel Castro VS Jodi Arias (who is worse?)

RocketEngineer
ConservativePolitico

Hello everyone! Based on the two biggest issues on the news during the last week, I think this would be a fun debate. How this will work, is that my opponent will pick one person in round one. This debate will be about determining who is more sick and twisted out of Jodi Arias, and Ariel Castro. I will take either one. Debate will take place in rounds 2 and 3. Thanks in advance to whoever accepts this. :)...

kimmi
Diirez

I say yes that students should to get paddled in school because it is the best thing to do when a child does something bad so they should get punished for what they did wrong and 35% of people say that is the right thing to do and only 19 states still paddle their students...
