Race, genes, IQ

Chuck11

Last year my brother called me a "racist" for pointing out that genes could mediate some of the US racial achievement gap, so, being a neurotic, I spend a number of months digging through the data and outlining the idea. (http://abc102.wordpress.com/) "Race, genes, and disparity." I found the idea to be plausible, but the evidence, while trending to support a partial genetic hypothesis, equivocal -- anyways, I'm looking for someone to debate the issue. The stipulation is that they read through s...

Heavy medal music is not "emo"

SashaAlekzandr

As a teenage girl who listen to what most people would call "emo" and "suicidal" I do not think that it is fair that I have to be subject to that kind of torment. When I look at the top 100 list of songs all I see are pop/rap songs with lyrics talking about f**king women and how much swag and money they have. I think that is what is making teenagers today feel the pressure to fit in to society....

BrandonMS
Aerogant

This is a rather simple concept: If there is an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent deity, can absolute free will exist? I say no, and am therefore Pro. I have seen this definition of a god be used to define specifically the Abrahamic god several times and will thus be focusing largely on that in my opening statement, but it may describe any god the opponent wishes. Biblical, religious, and philosophical verses and references are allowed to be used as points. Because of the subject of...

Intelligent design is a more likely cause than Abiogenesis for the origin of life

Jellon
Aerogant

Abiogenesis is the natural process of life arising from non-living matter such as simple organic compounds. Pro must show that the most likely origin for the first life on earth to be an intelligent source. Con must show that the most likely origin for the first life on earth to be a non-intelligent source. Round 1 will be acceptance. Round 2 will be opening arguments. Round 3 will be rebuttals to opening arguments. Round 4 will be rebuttals to round 3 rebuttals. Round 5 will be for any c...

Israel has no choice

The full text of the resolution is "Although Israel's position in the West Bank is mutually undesirable for Israel and Palestinians, Israel has no choice in the matter, because there are no reasonable alternatives." Cons job will be to suggest an alternative solution that does not increase the risk of harm to Israel, Israeli citizens, or the Jewish People. This debates definition of unreasonable includes, but is not limited to, anything that results in that. My opening points assume three opt...
