I will argue that it was a net positive and my opponent will argue the opposite.First round is acceptance. BoP is shared.Looking forward to a good debate!...

Clean/Renewable Energy is the ideal source of energy (Over fossil fuels)

JasonBran
BBKelKel

Okay, first, I will start off by stating my arguments, and introduce my topic. I believe renewable energy is the ideal source of energy for the future for many reasons 1. Renewable energy will never run out As fossil fuels do run out, as they are non-renewable, renewable energy will not. They come in natural forms such as sun and wind which are things that will never run out. 2. Fossil fuels pollute earth and melt polar ice caps As shown in numerous studies, the use of fossil fuels h...

School Uniforms

School uniforms have been around for many years. I believe it's time to drop the uniforms, and allow students to wear as they wish. Many supporters of this highly-debated topic say that school uniforms keep students, especially the ladies, modest. I don't see how a short skirt is keeping the girls modest, and isn't that what the regular public school dress code is for? Keeping their students dressing appropriately? School uniforms are doing nothing to benefit the education system. Making...

Should VCE Exams be compulsory?

ConservativeDialectic

What is everyone's opinions about end of year exams? It can cause some mental health problems in youth, which could develop later in life. It is also not a real representation of the attainment of knowledge, as it is really a test of who has the best photographic memory. The stakes are too high, if you don't get the score, it can be a complete change for those who want to study something, they could take years to get back on the right path they would have if they originally got the score. It can...

Abortion

akaRay

The embryo is more than just cells, it's the foundations of a living human! If you didn't harm the embryo it goes without saying that it will form into a living being, and your taking the life away from the baby. When the embryo is created that's when the soul enters the body, your taking away the person's one chance to live on this earth because you MADE THE MISTAKE(not including rape). But even with rape, the spouse will ever be so great full that you gave them a chance to live! Instead of peo...

What is more valuable: Making your own clothes? Or paying over-priced fashions?

Pyrophobia
mschechtel17

I think it is more valuable for everyone to find a sense of achievement in learning to create something original that they can make themselves as opposed to spending outrageous amounts of money from the fashion industry who seems to get greedier as time goes on. I realize that people are judged by their clothing style but who really has the right to try to change another person style choice?...
