Abortion should be outlawed

righty10294
Retrospace18

Abortion should be outlawed. It is just disgusting how a women can kill their offspring just because she had "sexy time" wrong. I don't want to hear the argument, "what if she got raped." If she did get raped she should have the baby and the raped pay all losses to the women. Now when she has the baby, alls you have to do is to bring it to a orphanage or a firehouse. How much can that cost you, if you bring it there on the way home from the hospital. Also, 1.2% of abortions are with girls who...

Evolution is incorrect

Renzzy
Descartes

I am against evolution, and I would like to know why whoever accepts this believes it is correct. I would like to concentrate more on the the issue of the age of the earth (I don't even know exactly how old you say it is, but I don't agree.:-P), but if you would like to bring other topics in, that's fine by me....

My opponent will win receive the most votes.

Logical-Master
solo

My opponent will win since, tehrefore he will. Here, I have committed the fallacy of begging the question. Surely you would not vote for me because of this. I have also presented no evidence to prove that my opponent will win, so you have to vote for him/her. I havee also not bothered to spell check or check for grammatical errors in this post. In short, I am being nonsensical....

Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized.

TheSkeptic
InquireTruth

ON GUARD! I affirm the resolution: Gary Marriage should be legalized. For the sake of clarity and being terse, the term "gay" will be an umbrella term for the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community. I am not arguing in what way gay marriage should be legalized (federal or states), but I'm arguing that it SHOULD be legalized because there is no valid legal argument against gay marriage. Do note that since this is in context of being legalized, saying that God is against ga...

George Bush Was a Good President

youngpolitic
wpfairbanks

I would like to open up my argument by saying that I believe that President George W. Bush did a great job as president and does not deserve all of the criticism he received when he left office. I will support this statement by using these arguments: a) Bush reacted to the best of his ability in the 9/11 situation. He worked fast and efficiently under enormous amounts of pressure. b) He always did what he thought was right. Bush did not cave into the demands of Congress and the people, he...

On balance, Anarchism is More Humanitarian than State Planning

Sieben
Danielle

Every broad argument will be tagged with a letter/number. Elucidation: D1) On balance: Keep the framework reasonable. Ignore the possibility that aliens could invade and destroy every society beginning with consonants. Employ ceteris parabis assumptions. D2) Anarchism: The lack of aggressive monopoly. In this conversation, aggression is distinct from coercion according to the Libertarian ethic. The forceful defense of self ownership and peaceful homesteading is "coercion", not "aggre...

Christianity is a force for good in the world.

Freeman
RoyLatham

On balance, Christianity has done far more harm than good in the modern world. Its human rights record is disgraceful and the negative impacts of its dogmas have reverberated throughout history and even into the present day. As though this wasn't bad enough it also impoverishes the human condition by distracting people from their real happiness with illusory preachments of an afterlife. And despite the good intentions of many decent people it is still one of the prime sources of a considerable a...

Model Debate : Hot Girls

Mikal
dtaylor971

Note : This was an idea that either bsh or annie came up with, but I liked the concept. Each round each user will post 5 pictures of a model. All the pictures that are posted in one round must be of the same model. Meaning there will be 4 different models used throughout the course of this debate, with 20 pictures total. The name of the model should be included with their age, height, and weight. Con Will start the debate in round 1, and pass in round 5 to even out the rounds. Ju...

Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized.

TheSkeptic
Phil

Gay Marriage should be a legal form of marriage for the simple fact that disallowing LGBT groups to marrying is taking a right that should be theirs. I'll let you go first, as I am contending that there are no substantial legal reasons to disallow same-sex marriage, and thus it should be a right for any LGBT couple to marry....

Okay, here's one I think I can win. First of all, I'm completely against the deplorable activites that Michael Jackson and Catholic priests are engaging in. It's wrong!...
