This debate won't be started for at least another 2 weeks. Between then and now, I'll work on the resolution. Any advice on that part is welcome. The debate should be impossible to accept and I will be nominating judges and doing a choose winner option. Judges are yet to be determined and any suggestions by potential opponents will be considered. I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...

same sex marriage should be legalised in the countries where it is not

I fully believe that same sex marriage should be legalised my reasoning for this is that everyone is equal and if you want to marry someone of the same gender then you can that is totally fine. The only downside is you cant have babies and you have to adopt. so the pros outway the cons. That is the end of my first argument...

ALS Bucket Challenge is a Waste of Water & Time!

philosurfer

ALS Bucket Challenge is a Waste of Water & Time! MOST folks have opted to dump water instead of donating money. That's how it works. I'm sure the statistics wouldn't even be close regarding ice water dumping vs. donations. The ratios would be sad. Further, why not use dirty sewer water? Why use fresh water? There is a fresh water shortage in the world! I have water restrictions where I live! If you want to help, post a video of yourself donating the money rather than dumping...

[Before I go on two things need to be cleared up right away; 1- Things like, "God's will" will not be brought into this debate. 2- Every living organism on Earth in simplicity is either a cell or a mass of cells.] This is how the debate will go; Round 1: Acceptance and initial argument (Usually one sentence long, maybe two) Round 2: Extending argument in more detail Round 3: Rebuttals Round 4: Rebutting Rebuttals (You can only rebut things that were stated in Round 3 by your opponent) And...

gsairam
Atheist-Independent

Why? if you say that's because most states of India speak Hindi then I believe there are 10 times more people in India who speak English. now the world calls for...

LogicalLunatic
LifeMeansGodIsGood

First Round is for acceptance. Burden of Proof is shared. Definition of Race of the Future: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_of_the_Future Definition of White Race: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_people This debate has been set up in a manner which doesn't allow "noob" debaters to accept. And as Aerogant's account has been closed, I don't have to worry about him accepting this debate. I await a worthy challenger. To the person who accepts, I wish you good luck, because victory w...
