ceci.paranjothi
proanimator

i am a teenager and I have a phone. my parents make me turn in my phone at 10 every night EVEN IN THE SUMMER! they think that I will be up all night destracted by it, but in reality I like to read before I go to bed. my body knows when im tired so that's when I turn off my lamp and shut my eyes. do they not trust me? I get anxiety at night and I feel a lot safer when im alone at night when I know my phone is in the room ( I know I can call someone if I feel endanger ) but I feel my parents think...

is the Confederate flag racist?

hwillsr
Boesball

I believe the Confederate flag is not racist, not only because of its history, but because of ours. Tn the history of the United States, we have condoned the actions of forcing Native Americans off their lands, mass genocide of native americans, slavery, and concentration camps of Japanese people and it is seen as a sign of freedom. Also, the "Confederate" flag as we call it, or the battle flag of the northern Virginia army, was seen as a sign of pride, courage, and bravery....

Creation and Evolution are both Religions

CreationGuy

Creation and Evolution are both Religions I am a Young Earth Creationist who believes that God created everything in six literal 24hrs days. The earth can be proved to be 6000 years old and it is not billions of years. Evolution is not a theory it is a religion.We can agreed we have the same evidence but different conclusions. Now Evolution is not scientific but it it used in the textbooks like it is. I am not against science . I love science . I am only against the lies in the textbooks! Pl...

Scott Walker

Hello, hello. I decided to create this debate after the "lovely" Wisconsin governor Scott Walker has announced his run for president of the United States in 2016. This debate, however, has nothing do with his presidential bid.As a Wisconsinite myself, I have gotten a taste of what happens under Walker's "leadership", and I am very excited to begin this debate.

Rules1. BoP (Burden of Proof) is shared.2. Religion can NOT be a factor in either one of our arguments. That will quickly twist the topic at hand.3. Minor trolling IS allowed. However, if it goes on consistently, it will result in a loss of conduct and convincing arguments.4. First round is ONL...

Theists have no good reason for why evolution should not be mandatory teaching in all schools.

brands
qtpi314

Evolution is a controversial topic, and I believe it should not be. Many religious people feel that it should not be taught to children, mostly on the basis that it is only a theory. I ask for a theist to argue their either their reason to believe that evolution is false, and therefore should not be taught, or whatever other reason they have for their anti-evolution stance, if it is a stance they take....

Scientific evidence does not support Evolution

Cook123
NumingDisasterAnon

I will be arguing that that evolution has not been proven scientifically and any evidence used to support it could be reasonably explained from a creation viewpoint. Since the theory of evolution is taught in schools as science, and creation is presented as religious, the burden of proof is on con to show that evolution can and did happen. Science - Knowledge gained from observation, experimentation, and demonstration (Can be proven). Evidence - The available body of facts or information ind...
