Evolution and Creationism should both be taught in public schools

SolaGratia
KevinL75

According to a recent Gallup poll, 66 percent of Americans believe in Creationism, while 53 percent believe in Evolution. Obviously there is some overlap here. A full quarter of Americans believe that both Evolution and Creationism are definitely or probably true, suggesting to me that they believe God created the universe THROUGH evolution; a reasonable belief. It's obvious that America is divided on this issue. We have public institutions for educating our young people. They are run by...

The Character Limit at Debate.org is a Nuisance and Should Be Removed.

Rousseau
revleader5

I beleive the character limit is a nuisance to seriosu debaters, and in some cases (see my debate on Africa, in which I have had to delete several things on almost every post due to the character limit) actually limits the debate. I beleive that there should be no character length, but rather a trust that no one will go ridiculously in depth with superfluous information. Added to this I can see no reason for it to be around. At the very least, I support lengthening it. I beleive it was added...

Randomness is a lack of Knowledge in both Spiritual and Physical world.

GodSands
JustCallMeTarzan

By not being able to have the knowledge of a great or a small deal of information is random. As information is knowledgeable, therefore by definition it would appear random, as you have no knowledge of the matter at hand. If being scared is a fright of sudden randomness, not being able to understand something. Like in my very personal case not understanding the spiritual world is frightening as well as random. Example: Water into wine by Jesus Christ. This will seem random because of your la...

A Proposal of Protocols (for those who care)

brittwaller
Sweatingjojo

This debate is a means to an end. It is also probably in vain. I would like to include as many debaters as possible, so please, leave feedback. If you don't really care, or don't care at all, then do just that, please - don't participate in the debate in any way, shape, or form. Don't leave comments, don't vote, and above all - DO NOT TAKE THE TOPIC. This is really not so much a debate as an announcement of ideas for the benefit of the debating community. Thus, I request a co-debater of some ser...

Is Home Schooling The Answer

happy2b
shreya

Perhaps home schooling is the answer for many families, considering how high the drop out rates are, the schools are trying to teach morals, discipline, or fashion. The schools are blaming parents, the Government and the children on the drop out rate, refusing to improve the system that is failing many children. It is the teacher's job to give a basic education so that children will be prepared for college. It is not their job to raise our children, to teach morals, how to dress, or to disc...

Should we bring back the Bible in our school system?

impactyourworld89
Harlan

My question to you is, should the Bible be brought back into our school system? Before the early 1960's, the Bible was a primary textbook in the classroom, but now the Supreme Court has ruled this unconstitutional. What do you think of this opinion, and do you think this aligns with the founding father's view of religion in schools? Why?...

Single sex schools

NSG
kels1123

I am against single sex schools. I have always been studying in the co-education schools, and have realized that with the daily company of males, as they are totally different humans both in the was they work and how they view life in general, half of my discovering around life has evolved through the connection with the opposite sex in school. Like half of your own being develops from both your mother and father, half and half, I believe living daily lives with the opposite sex make half of...

Art and/or music are important in grade school.

sdquinn
Danielle

Art and music programs are important to children in grade school as young minds are the most able to be cultivated and the benefits of both art and music on developing minds have been shown in various research publications. Art programs are able to cultivate developing artists to help gain jobs as artists -- as when competition arises for artistic competitions in later forms of education, those educated with art programs in grade school are more likely to succeed due to having more experience...

The Nazis were evil

kvaughan
zakkuchan

Nazi's suck. They killed all the Jews and made them dead and that's not alright with me. The Jews loved God and didn't afraid of anything so they didn't need to become an hero. Indeed dialectical critical realism may be seen under the aspect of Foucauldian strategic reversal-of the unholy trinity of Parmenidean/Platonic/Aristotelean provenance; of the Cartesian-Lockean-Humean-Kantian paradigm; of foundationalisms (in practice, fideistic foundationalisms) and irrationalisms (in practice, capri...
