Abortion should be illegal

tejretics
sengejuri

Pro can either start arguing in Round 1 and waive the final round, or use the first round for acceptance alone, and allow me to start the debate in Round 2. No new arguments in the final round. "Abortion" refers to "the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy." Pro has to argue that abortion, in all stages of pregnancy, should be illegal (outside of cases when the mother's life is in danger, or cases of rape). I have to argue that abortion has to be allowed in at least certain stages...

Obama was a good president

ANonRepublican
JonHouser

I have yet to find the words to describe the overwhelming sense of satisfaction I felt on Nov. 4, 2008 when Obama won the popular vote by 53 percent. With tears in my eyes, and joy in my heart, I stood alongside people of color across the nation as we celebrated America"s first inauguration of a black president. As a young black man, I felt a true sense of patriotism as I witnessed our country rally together to show, finally, that we are more concerned about who is the most qualified man for the...

Gay marriage should be illegal.

Nordung
Starfleet

1. It Is Not Marriage Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and well being of the spouses. The promoters of same-sex "marriage" propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and w...

The line "One nation, under God" should be kept in the pledge of allegiance.

PFJones
hello24942

I would like to argue against anyone who would like to argue that the line should be kept in the pledge. I would like to set up some guidelines, however. Whoever my opponent is, use the first round to just say you'll accept the challenge, and then Rounds 2-4 will be used as a three round debate. That will be all....

Evolution should be taught in public schools

EdgeOfTheInfinite
RonPaulConservative

First round is for acceptance and definitions though definitions can be placed and clarified in the second round as well but none else. Second round for arguments only. Third round for rebuttals only. Fourth round is for counter-rebuttals and concluding statements. Evolution-the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth. Theory-a coherent group of propositions formulated to explai...

White pride is a joke

Sidex
Forthelulz

I am arguing that "White Pride" is a joke or that it doesn't mean anything. In my opinion, people who have white pride are hypocrites to either Humanity or Christianity....

Philosophical Idealism (Pro) vs. Realism (Con)

Tree_of_Death
tahirimanov

This debate is for the DDO Beginner's Tournament. I shall be challenging tahirimanov to this debate. Philosophical idealism is defined as "the group of philosophies which assert that reality, or reality as we can know it, is fundamentally mental, mentally constructed, or otherwise immaterial." Realism is defined as "the belief that some aspects of reality are ontologically independent of our conceptual schemes, perceptions, linguistic practices, beliefs, etc." The first round is accepta...
