Is World Wide Web full of spiders?

Is World Wide Web full of spiders. It's called the World Wide Web because the pages are like a spider web: one strand will lead you to another, and then another, and then another, and they're all interconnected somehow....

Killing Prostitutes is not a "murder"; it is social cleansing activism.

Most people, and you highly likely too, dislike prostitutes. Prostitutes are viewed as some creatures on the utterly low level of society where they engage in a filthy, dirty activity every single night just to earn the money. Most people do not like to interact with them or admitting having interacted with them, for sex. You would much likely never even think of recommending to any female around you, no matter how terrible her financial struggle may be. At the same time, you would hardly likely...

Is Morality Relative?

TouchtheSky
Leaning

I have been busy this past couple of days with exams, but I still want to be doing some brief debates, so I'm putting a debate up with a shorter character limit (4000 words). The topic of this debate will be the question of, 'Is Morality Relative?'. This is the definition I'd like to propose for 'moral relativism': The philosophized notion that right and wrong are not absolute values, but are personalized according to the individual and his or her circumstances or cultural orientation. It...

There Should be a Birth Tax

I think there should be a birth tax (i.e. it costs money to give birth to a child). This way, overpopulation and global warming/climate change can be combated. Also, there will be less crime, and black people will be discouraged from having kids, considering how poor they often are. Furthermore, a couple will generally not have more than 2 kids due to the implementation of the birth tax. I propose a birth tax of $50,000 USD, or the equivalent in other currencies, for each child. Twins will in...

The Star Wars prequels are bad

Phenenas
JimShady

Hello Debate.org, it's time for a (hopefully) more lighthearted and nerdy topic. I recently watched the Star Wars prequels, meaning The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002), and Revenge of the Sith (2005). I'll admit that I kind of liked the last one, but it is still a deeply flawed movie, and I hated the other two. So my argument is that on the whole, this prequel trilogy was bad, and the negatives outweigh the positives.But I under...

Evidence for macro evolution

Thiest_1998
ogsavage

This is somewhat of a continuation of a previous debate because I missed a round. http://www.debate.org/debates/Evidence-for-macro-evolution/2/ In June of 1992, Dr. Steven Austin took a sample of dacite from the new lava dome inside Mount St. Helens, the volcano in Washington state. The dacite sample was known to have been formed from a 1986 magma flow, and so its actual age was an established fact. Dr. Austin submitted the sample for radiometric dating to an independent laboratory in Cambrid...
