Earth would not have become the planet of the apes without the Simian Flu.

emporer1
Balacafa

This debate will be about the Planet of the apes movie series (both old and new). I will be arguing that if the Simian Flu virus had never occurred the Apes never would have become the dominant species on the planet. Everything that occurred in Rise of the Planet of the Apes will remain the same with the exception of the ALZ-113 triggering a simian flu virus. In this alternate time line ALZ-113 has no effect on humans what so ever and Gen Sys abandons the ALZ project. However ALZ still causes Ap...

Is the confedrate flag on goverment property ok?

pwardpa
IllinoisanLibertarian

Is it ok to have the confederate flag fly on government property? Would it be ok to have the Nazi flag fly on these properties? It wouldn't! And the fact that its allowed by the majority of the white america says they have racism in their hearts towards black people. The confederate flag origins take place upon cessation from the US of America, because they refuse to abolish slavery. When I see a confederate flag it reminds me of how my ancestors where imprisoned, tortured, raped and killed. The...

God Probably Exists

God will be defined as the fundamental Mind that grounds everything else.... I will be arguing that God exists using some unconventional arguments, but I will not be arguing that this God is the God of any particular religion. For Con the first round will just be for acceptance....

Should Gay Marriage Be Legal In America

KCole
MagicAintReal

I am a Christian, and I strongly believe and know that gay marriages are wrong. The Bible talks in several different places that it is wrong. Christianity is what America was built on, so why abandon it now and listen to pop culture that's telling us that gay marriages is okay? forbid gay marriages...

Evolution (Con) vs. Creationism (Pro)

NothingSpecial99
Demonoid

Full Resolution: Which model creation or evolution can better account for the variety in species we see today. Now that I have the time to do this debate I'll reinstate it. Notice that this debate is impossible to accept and if you find a way to accept then you forfeit. Comment below if you are interested. Arguments must be kept biological. If not, then the side must justify using the argument by explaining why it is relevant to the resolution. Creationism - the doctrine that matter and...

Government Meddling in the U.S. Food System Only Makes Things Worse Off for Everyone

Jblock
RhinoOz

The U.S. government has banned trans-fats. Great news?, right? This must mean that Americans will be healthier, more fit and less obese in up and coming years? Unfortunately this is not the case. The government has a long history of meddling in the food system; most of which has resulted in a worsening of the American health system in general. While some of the intervention might be paved with good intentions, government meddling in the food system has contributed -- and in some cases caused --...

Debatasaurus

There are certain things that we study in great detail when we are studying physics chemistry biology separately. Gaining knowledge should be the motto of life not gaining marks. Studying science as combined subject reduces workload but at the same time it reduces knowledge gained....

Protection of civil liberties is more important than the protection against international terroism

Bethany-Francis
TheHappyReaper

They are just trying to do their job by keeping us safe According to Thomas Hobbes the unwritten social contract was based on the exchange of individual liberty for group safety and social order. People still have the ability to enjoy the basic freedoms of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, but the government still has to do its job as protecting its citizens....

On the legislation of marriage

Tucktovich
HermanGomez95

As we'd talked about in the comments of your debate. I would like to argue that "marriage" should cease to be recognized/sanctioned/etc. as an independent legal entity outside of contract law. While typically, the "Pro" side has BoP, as I am arguing in favour of a change to the status quo, I accept the BoP for this debate. I propose the following format: First round for acceptance/definitions/clarification of the debate question Second round for introductory arguments Third round r...
