Please post in the comments if you would like to accept this debate.Debate Resolution ClarificationThe use of "In Christianity" in the resolution is not to reflect on Christian teaching, rather it is used to as "assuming Christianity is true." This being said, scripture from both the New and Old Testament may be used in this debate. All 73 books of the B...

All drugs should be legalized for both medical and recreational use.

Yehonathan
Preston

This is my first debate, so I apologize in advance if I accidentally break any rules. :) I am NOT arguing that people should not be discouraged from using drugs. 1.Drug use is a victimless crime; people should be allowed to put what they want in their bodies. 2.Legalizing drugs would save people from going to prison. 3.Legalizing drugs would make it so that people can buy high quality drugs, and have the proper dosages so they don't hurt themselves as much. 4.The money from legalizi...

Strycora
ATHOS

Last time, my opponent was so unprepared for my argument that the debate never got off of the ground on account of a double forfeiture. I will be arguing for the existence of Karma. Karma is defined here as the psycho-spiritual principle that the conscious intentions of any self aware individual are the only causes of mental anguish and personal fulfillment. The BOP is on me to prove the existence of this psycho-spiritual principle. If my opponent can prove that mental anguish or personal...

The Pope is the Antichrist.

lannan13

As much as I'd hate to be blatant and even considerably rude to some, I will be arguing that the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church is the Antichrist that the Bible speaks of. I've made this debate impossible to accept, so if you are interested in arguing that the Pope is NOT the anti-Christ, then the following must apply: 1) The Con is a Christian, (preferably Catholic, but not required) 2) The Con believes the Bible cover to cover, Sola Scriptura There are four rounds, first is acceptan...

kasmic
TrueScotsman

The following is quote from the Book of Mormon 2 Nephi:25 verse 26 "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our ch...
