MikeySweet

In this debate I will defend the age-long tradition and necessity of hunting for food (This does not include trophy hunting, which is a completely different topic) For round 1, you may choose to make an opening argument or just say "accept." The Con will have to prove that hunting for food and sustenance is wrong....

Should drugs be legalized

Quan-Douglas
Jimbus

Apart from it simply being one's moral right to do drugs as it tangibly effects them and only them, the practical reasons are numerous. A significant portion of the incarcerated population were imprisoned because of drug related crimes. Each inmate costs the government hence the people money. If drugs were to be legalized and such inmates acquitted, it would lower expenditures dramatically. Furthermore, the main source of income for many crime organizations is drugs. Legalizing drugs would r...

Drugs are not victimless crimes

Hero_Liberator
ErenBalkir

First round is for acceptance and pleasantries. Second round is opening statements and arguments(no rebuttal of other's arguments) Third round is rebuttal and so on. The burden of proof lies on both individuals to back up their claims. I'd have to prove how they are without a victim, and my fellow debater will need to prove how it causes victims. This is also the same with any other claim made. I'd like to limit the false dichotomy, slippery slope, appeal to authority, and straw man log...

PericIes

Science clearly proves that Creationism is, in fact, very real. To prove my argument, I will make four points (out of many possibilities, for the sake of expidency): 1. The argument that "nature" has the power to create life is ludicrous. My evidence for this argument is derived from logic (the science of reason): If pure chance can create life, than why can't humans? We are an intelligent race which can synthesise chemicals and clone animals, so why can't we produce the protien...

This debate will focus on this question of constitutional legality: Whether any adverse action taken by Old Dominion University against the students responsible for the creation and display of sexually suggestive signs on or about August 26, 2015 can be constitutionally justified. For reference: http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/25/us/virginia-old-dominion-university-sigma-nu-offensive-banners/ For reference, here are transcriptions of three of the banners in question: "Rowdy and Fun.
