Plastic bags are the superior grocery bag compared to paper.

FaustianJustice
grotto77

I assert that plastic bags are the superior choice for carrying groceries when asked at any grocer or super market. For purposes of clarification, this is specific to the regular paper or plastic bags that is in regular supply, not self purchased "green" cloth bags, or recycled fiber plastic bags, or artificial paper ones. First round is for pleasantries and terms. Second round is for creation of arguments. Third round is refute only. Fourth round is reconstruction of the case, no new a...

Is there life outside Earth?

I believe it is quite unreasonable and foolish to assume that we (meaning all of Earth's life) are the only form of life in this vast system of planets and stars. What do you guys think?...

As you know, the resolution is as follows: the benefits of being a throw-away society outweighs the costs to society and the environment. We model this resolution as follows: the scope would be for the people using the devices and the companies. Our goal is to have further development in society and make sure there"s less pollution, and no chaos. We have three constructive arguments to show why this resolution is true and should pass.

The theory of evolution is fact

MykSkodar
SCOTSKNIGHT12

In this debate, I will argue that evolution by natural selection is a fact, while my opponent will argue that it is not. Things that will not be debated: -the meaning of the word theory. -abiogenesis (how life got started). The theory of evolution provides clues to the origin of life, but is not ultimetaly about the origin of life. Arguments on the origin of life from either side should therefore not be considered. Rounds: 1st round = Acceptance. 2nd round = Opening statements (no reb...

Super Tiny Debate (STD) #1: Are Nuclear Bombs Necessary For Warfare?

RevL8ion
Cermank

Yes, I am aware of the the acronym of Super Tiny Debate, and I decided to keep it in the title because it was partially amusing. Anyway, first round is acceptance only. Con must prove that nukes are necessary in war in a minimum of 500 characters over 5 rounds. In return, I must prove that nuclear bombs are unnecessary in a war. Sources are unnecessary for this STD (XD). Only 24 hours are given for each round. No trolling allowed.
