Tier Tournament 2 [Top], R2: Let Anyone Work Anywhere

whiteflame
phantom

Thank you to phantom for accepting this debate! It's an honor to get this opportunity, as phantom is one of the first debaters on this site whose arguments really stood out to me, specifically in the previous Tier Tournament. I hope and believe that this debate should provide a solid challenge to us both. The topic as it stands, "Let anyone work anywhere," is something I feel the need to clarify. First, I'd like to expand the topic to its full length. Full topic: There should be no law in...

OverviewA battle of...Animals. This debate has a very simply premise. We will each choose an animal in round one (a species, not a subspecies). This animal species must be mammalian, nonhuman, and must not be functionally or actually extinct. You may not claim the same animal as me.Once we have selected our animals (R1) we will use the succeeding rounds to debate which one is "better" where the criteria for what is "better" are: (a) appeal a...

My opponent will contradict him/herself

9spaceking
AlexanderOc

The resolution is simple. All I have to do is to get my opponent to contradict himself.I get to ask 5 questions per round. (I can of course choose not to ask any questions within any round, but that would be stupid) My opponent can either answer "yes" or "no", but must choose an answer--he or she may not put a blank next to the question. He can lie of course, but I can ask a question twice, so I suggest telling the truth so that the second time I can't catch you off guard. Capitalizat...

9spaceking
Aerogant

The resolution is simple. "9spaceking is CON in This Particular Debate". "This particular debate" refers to this exact debate which you are currently reading. The link can be found here: http://www.debate.org/debates/9spaceking-is-CON-in-This-Particular-Debate/1/. And CON means "the opposing side of the resolution", while PRO means the side going for the resolution. So PRO has to prove 9spaceking is in fact CON in this...

Dan Brown's portrayal of Christian history in "The Da Vinci Code" is inaccurate.

Zwickar
Swedishperspective

My argument is that the various historical claims that Dan Brown makes in his fictional novel, "The Da Vinci Code," are inaccurate. The claims include: "Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene, and they had children." "The Vatican suppressed science and truth in order to gain power." "Da Vinci was a closet atheist and intentionally tried to undermine the Church." ...and other such claims. In the first round, my opponent should choose one or two claims above or another claim that he or s...

This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts Are Immoral!

Ajabi
kbub

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This debate entitled: This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts are Immoral is a re-do of one of the first debates I had from my old account. I lost miserably to kbub and I would like to see if my refined argument can now hold any ground. Now I believe that I should clarify the rules, the order, and some principle definitions which will be referred to throughout the debate. 1. The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no...
