Bwacit
Blade-of-Truth

Prospective Job Applicants Should Not be Asked to Reveal Prior Criminal Convictions Criminal Conviction = the judgement of a jury or judge that a person is guilty of crime as charged. Prospective Job Applicants = people applying for a job Prior = Before an event Proposition Hello judge. Imagine this. A poor man is starving.

Tarrif penalty on imports not manufactured to U.S regulations for polution, safety, child labor, etc

pvwebb
casebash

Here are two things that hinder the competitiveness of U.S. labor, and what the U.S. can do about it. First, we regulate the environmental impact, safety, and employment practices of our own manufacturing, but put no restrictions on imports from manufacturers outside the U.S. Regulating one business when its competition is unregulated regulates that business out of business. Second, we tax the income of U.S workers, making U.S. labor more expensive. The U.S. could put a tariff as a penalty on...

Global Warming is Man-Made

RoyLatham

==Clarification== I will be arguing that mankind IS the cause of global warming, my opponent will be arguing that mankind is NOT the main driver of modern climate change. My opponent, therefore, is arguing that the theory of anthropogenic climate change is incorrect. This is pretty straightforward. Abbreviations which might be used: AGW -- Anthropogenic global warming CR -- cosmic ray[s] TSI -- Total solar irradiation MWP -- Medieval Warm Period SSN -- Sun spot number PDO --...

Men should work and women should stay home and look after the children

jess8888
Sciencegeek

Women and men should work and get paid and women shouldn't have to stay at home to look after the children. Both genders offer different skills which are valuable to society. Just as those skills can be utilised in a home setting, they can also be used in a boardroom. Over the years, women have fought for equality and the right to work. It isn't fair that a man should have to work and make the money while the woman stays at home. If men and women work, it also increases the income in that hou...

DC Comics is better than Marvel

Jefferyi_Magtubo
Twistedlicorice

DC Comics universe is far better than the Marvel universe. Almost (emphasis on almost) every single hero and some villains are based off the DC universe. Iron Man=Batman(or Cyborg). Hawkeye=Green Arrow. Deadpool= Deathstroke. Sandman=Clayface. Namor=Aquaman. Dr.Strange=Dr. Fate. Angel=Hawkman. Vision=Martian Manhunter. The list can go on and on. Another thing that DC dominates in is T.V, comics, and everything else besides movies (I have to give credit when it's due, Marvel has better movies)....

Should the holocaust be a mandatory topic in school?

iramski
SonicGhost

There are so many lessons to be learnt from the Holocaust - good, bad, and way beyond ugly. How did it get to that stage? What drove the offenders, and what drove the rescuers? How do we ensure that, if something similar should arise, that we will never, ever remain bystanders? Bystanders were, in many cases, essentially passive offenders, because without their silent consent, the Nazis would have had a much harder time in doing as much damage as they did. The amount of good that rescuers did is...

Homeopathy is a valid form of medicine

SarcasticMethod

In this debate I and my opponent will debate the claim that homeopathy is a valid form of medicine. I would like that all non-trivial claims are backed up either by empirical evidence or logical reasoning. Stick to standard English grammar and spelling, but don't call anyone out on their spelling, as it would slow down the debate. Also, try to write responses like you might design a skirt: long enough to cover all the details, but short enough to keep you excited. 1st round: Definitions 2nd ro...

Do humans know everything?

Almog
Commondebator

Think about it...and when I say think about it, I mean throw away everything you think you know about what you don't, and think deeply about the argument. It is possible to know everything. By possible to know everything, I mean not in a carnal state, but rather in a general state. When one knows everything in a general state, only thing can someone learn everything in specificity. There are may questions people think are unanswered, but they are in our face. In order to know everything, you hav...
