Can photography be art?

Salutations!I would like to debate weather or not photography can be an art. Photography can definitely be art, I will not how ever claim that all photography is art or that every photo taken is a peace of art. A creative photographer can create photos that show the world just as the way it is, or can distort reality. There is room for creativity in the framing, lighting, and in some cases the photographers editing of the shot. Art also often conveys beauty...

Is it truly theft?

Drtraumaty
wolf24

This topic circulates around the ongoing question of "Art Theft," and more specifically if it is justified to target people whom utilize other people's artworks for visual-demonstrative purposes only, without modifying the artwork or claiming it to be their own. Especially, when there isn't a specific creative commons license in which dictates usage rights. Most artists on the Deviantart and Tumblr networks do not openly provide their copyright terms, thus there is no way for people to know i...

Is art more important than science in the world?

Silver556

To me as far as I am concerned, art is not that important or needed in this world compared to science. Art is something that is needed for human entertainment. while science is needed to make the world a better place for others. We need people in the world that can help mankind, not people who can entertain others cause in the end it does not help the world in any way. Why do you think that there are fewer opportunities for people who are good at art compared to science? There are many jobs such...

Pro will accept and argue that the square is indeed yellow.To make it clear for my opponent, this image was taken from Wikipedia:https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Yellow_Square.JPGThis is not a semantic argument where I will argue that the square is some hue in the...

We Should Beat Donald Trump Supporters

MadCatTB
SJM

Donald Trump supporters should be viciously beaten, because they are obnoxious and despicable people. I put this under the category of "Arts," because I hope that beating Trump supporters will one day develop into a performance art. There will be five rounds to this debate and if you accept you will be arguing against the proposition that Donald Trump supporters should be viciously beaten on sight....

Animals should not be killed for sport.

If animals are hunted for sport, they will go extinct. The same thing happened to the passenger pigeon. They once thrived and now they are extinct. If you want to practice hunting for sport, you could simply use targets....

Beloved classic children's books being made into hollywood movies

Disclaimer: This is my first debate (on this website). I did a formal debate once at school, so I am aware that there are certain rules/etiquette, but otherwise I'm pretty clueless about how to go about this or how best to use this website. Anyway here goes... It saddens me when I hear that yet another famous classic children's book is being made into yet another hollywood blockbuster movie. It is a well-known and very evident fact that movies fall short (sometimes hard on their faces) wh...
