Homosexuality in Humans is a Choice

Ajabi

PrefaceAjab and I have discussed this several times before, and I feel, at this point, it is important to debate this directly. This debate was sparked by this thread: [http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/63148/1/] I sincerely hope Ajab accepts, as he was the one who suggested this debate was necessary.As this issue is one that is particularly controversial, I have made this a judge only debate. The judges are phantom, Raisor, Wylted, Cerma...

There should only be school from Tuesday to Friday

I believe there should only be school from Tuesday to Friday because with 5 days of school there is just too much stress. It really isn't that much if it is only 4 days. One day makes a big difference...

The Doctrine of the Sin Nature

creationtruth
Raisor

I am a Bible-believing Christian and I am arguing against the doctrine of the sin nature. The text of the King James Bible will be my final authority. You may use any version you like, but I will be defending my case using the KJB and not other versions. Greek and Hebrew may be referenced by both Pro and Con. Rules for the debate:<...

Science cannot disprove God, nor does it even come close to offering anything on the matter.

Tommy.leadbetter
NathanDuclos

Science is allowed one miracle: the creation on the universe and everything in it, and the creation and function of all the laws that govern it. After that they got it pretty good. Just remember to not get ahead of yourselves. People, particularly scientists, have a habit of 'uber-theorising', meaning that they try and explain the full picture with just the knowledge they have. Every single culture since the dawn of agriculture 'knew' the beginning and origins of the world, at least they tho...

Should homosexuality be accepted into our society(please give reasoning that is non-religious)

SkepticalDefender
Foolylekooly

I am pro-gay marriage because I don't mind if 2 loving couples get married, I'd like to hear some reasoning as to why it's bad, but all I've heard is religious reasoning, that's not what I'm looking for, why do you agree with me? I'd like to see debating from a homonegativist or homophobic perspective. My arguements 1) they didn't hurt you or society, what they do in bed is not your buissness 2) love is love, it's not fake 3) it's scientifically proven to not be a choice, not all people can...

The U.S. Penny Should Be Abolished

Conspiracyrisk
Miss_Persistent

This debate is a redo of one of my previous debates. If you wish, you may view that one first to get the gist of my opinion. However, I am adding the rule that you may not quote anything I said in that debate for the duration of this one. This debate will follow this pattern: Round 1: Opening Statements Only (No Arguments) Round 2: Opening Arguments Only (No Rebuttals) Round 3: Rebuttals Round 4: Closing Arguments (No Rebuttals) Round 5: Rebuttals and Closing Statements I am for abol...

The medical model of mental illness is flawed

TommyB12
thenewkid

This debate will be four rounds. Round one will be acceptance and a statement of my claim only. Round two will be argument and definitions(if needed). Round three rebuttal and round four conclusion statements with no new argument. My claim is that while emotional and/or mental troubles are very real the medical model of mental illness is flawed as there is not sufficient research or data to prove that mental illnesses are mainly or exclusively biological in nature. Good Luck!! I look for...
