Resolved: That the United States should recognize the Armenian Genocide

ThinkBig
Stupidape

Preface The Armenian Genocide is sadly one of the least recognized genocides in recent history. The genocide began on 24 April 1915 when Armenian intellectuals and public figures were detained and executed in Constantinople, the capitol city of the Ottoman empire. By 1917, more than 1 million Armenians were murdered by the Ottomans. [1]

Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy is so much better than The Amazing Spiderman

I've always loved the Spider-Man trilogy, and you better believe I was excited about the then upcoming Amazing Spiderman reboot. To put it mildly, I wasn't to impressed, and I think The Amazing Spiderman doesn't do Spider-Man justice. First, I don't want to hear, "it's just a matter of opinion, so you can't say either one is better than the other." That's called killing a debate. Second, I'd appreciate it if you post your arguments first. I'm genuinely interested in your arguments for...

Should humans cure Zika at the cost of mosquito's extinction?

IcyCream

As of right now, humans are treated as the priority. No matter how you might think of animals as an equal - You put yourself first. As of today, Zika is killing, and ruining lives of children, and it's only getting worse. The extinction of mosquito can quite cause turmoil in the ecosystem, but it's nothing a creature can't adapt to over time. I believe if Zika can be eliminated along with the mosquitos, then it's worth it....

The topic at hand is one of interest. Is the Torah the same collection of books and content (minus spelling errors) the Jews have always had? Is it historically reliable? Are all the books therein still the same? I affirm they are. This is a 5 round debate. 10,000 characters. Round 1 acceptance Round 2 opening arguments (no rebuttals) Round 3-4 anything goes Round 5 rebuttals/closing statements (no new arguments)...
