Zarroette

PrefaceI thank Zarroette for this debate. I hope she agrees to accept, and I look forward to a cordial, engaging exchange of views. If she would like to alter any rules or formatting, she should PM me prior to acceptance. This is, of course, an issue that is important to me personally, and so I hope to defend my position well. Due to the tendency for some users to cast ideological ballots on sensitive current-issue topics like this one, there is a mi...

should homework be banned/reduced

lord_megatron
Skuldugger

I think homework should be banned or reduced to certain parameters in schools. While homework does increase knowledge, school takes about 8 hours of the day's time away, plus the time our transport takes. Homework has always won in the war against sleep, lowering productivity of children and lesser chances of understanding what is being taught. Homework is often given as small assignments from all subjects, adding up to a gigantic pile. Deep sleepers may even miss school due to sleeping late. Th...

The Ethics of Star Trek: Holograms' Rights

bsh1
WillYouMarryMe

PrefaceThis is my fifth installment in 12-part series on the "Ethics of Star Trek." I think Star Trek holds a wealth of moral and philosophical quandaries that are fertile ground for debate and controversy. While some may see these kinds of TV show-related debates as "fluff" topics, I think that the serious ethical implications that underpin the topics I have selected belie that idea.My hope for this debate and for this series is that I will be able...

Christianity is Dumb

Mr0strich8020
Afterdark

I will be arguing, not that religion is bad but, that it is not based on reason and not a good system for seeking truth. Con will be arguing in opposition to what I just said. Round one is acceptance only, so con will present his rebuttal in round two. In this debate, my arguments will be fairly short, since this isn't a very difficult point to argue, but never the less. It's always fun debating Christians........So, best of luck to my opponent....
