Homeschooling

novilona
SlowDMO

Nowadays the percantage of homeschooled children is increasing. Parents choose this type of alternative education for a score of reasons. Among these reasons the main one is simply dissatisfaction with the current standing of public educational system.Personally, I do not consider homeschooling as a good alternative to traditional education. The main disadvantage of it is that parents, who choose this way, usually are not qualified specialists. In fact, they do not know HOW to teach. It´s...

Do you think it's healthy (mentally and physically) for animals to be kept in zoos?

YakovF

In my opinion I see no reason for animals to be kept in captivity, apart from to keep them from becoming endangered or extinct. I see it as cruel and unnatural, and the entertainment for us people is not worth the pain of them living in cages/ small spaces their entire lives rather than living in the wild and being free....

Violent games lead to violent actions

CameronWorthington
avenirblackoblique

I love video games, but does the high violence sometimes you violent ? No that"s a load of nonsense of course it doesn"t. But that"s what some people actually believe, and today I"ll tell you why some people believe it and why some don"t. By the age of seven, Yes SEVEN! You can tell the difference from fantasy violence and real world violence and when you play and watch more violent content that skill grows greater and seriously who on earth will just start thinking they"re hitman and start runn...

Does God exist?

nwarth
Champybeat

Hi all, my first debate back here in almost ten years! I look forward to returning and hope to get some excellent competition and and good discussion going. I'm looking for someone to debate the notion as to whether God exists! Obviously this is a bit difficult for me to go first, as what, exactly, "God" is has to be developed by the pro side. Additionally, as Bertrand Russell argued, the person making an affirmative claim is the one who bears the burden of proof. If I were to say, to use Rus...

Should each safe country accept more refugees?

Phoeni
emsiblook

Good luck to my opponent. I believe that each safe country should not accept more refugees as they have transformed the society in which tbey migrate to instead of settling and assimilating into their societies. An example is Germany, where Islam is starting to slowly become a growing religion due to the immense ridiculous amounts of refugees that had been taken in. Not only had societies been changed due to the results of acceping refugees, but there have been increases in crime from migrants a...

Donald trump is great

klmkmlk
whiteEagleDemocracy

Trump is a business man, not a politician. He should stick to running golf courses and casinos, not one of the most powerful countries in the world. He does not have the competence to run a country. It"s all "fake news" this and "Hillary"s emails" that, never anything that he"s actually supposed to be talking about or what he"s going to do next to "make America great again". He can"t follow up on the arguments he makes....

should the government raise minimum wage

mariagold
tenyearsoflight

id say that they shouldn't because though you would get more money minimum wage jobs are temporary jobs and meant to be treated as such raising minimum wage will raise taxes and big businesses will hide behind taking it away and instead businesses should just offer better jobs and working environments A higher minimum wage, would be too heavy a burden on employers, especially small business owners. And those employers, in turn, would be unable to hire as many people an undesirable result when un...
