The War on Christmas Exists

Saska
Raisor

I am arguing the Con side for this debate. It is up to Pro to prove that a war on Christmas actually exists. Round 1: Pro will begin opening arguments in Round 1. Since I am placing the BOP on my opponent here, I am giving Pro both the first and last words. Round 2: Con's opening argument and Pro's rebuttal. Round 3: Rebuttals. Round 4: Closing statements/conclusion. No new arguments from Pro in their final round. Definitions: War - an organized effort by a large organization...

The Theory of Evolution (By Charles Darwin) is more believable than The Creation Story (Genesis)

Kazoku
Envisage

Before I start. I made this argument based off my own beliefs. I do not deem to insult any creationists, but I do commend myself if I do. First off. We all know that the belief in God is rather...

The Creation story states that Adam and Eve were the first two humans on Earth....

16kadams
Wylted

==Definitions== Minimum wage: The minimum wage will be defined as the minimum compensation a worker will receive (from his employer) for preforming different forms of labor. The minimum wage is enforced by government laws. The current minimum wage, in the USA, is $7.25 an hour. Increase: In order to avoid semantics (for example, someone arguing it should be increased by 0.001 cents an hour), I will specify: the person who accepts must support *at least* an increase to $10 an hour. Though,...
