Con is to say that Religion is a force of good in the world. Pro is to say that religion isn't a force of good in the world. I will focus on the Christain religion, because I have the most knowledge in that specific sector. I believe that religion was invented by man, in order to give themselves a divine right to enslave, murder, and oppress people. It was mans first attempt at philosophy, and it shows. There are no commandments against genocide, slavery, rape, and murder, because God calls...

talks about wanting Public nudity

Okay, here is my opinion on all of this talk about public nudity. For one thing, I believe that it will only create a bunch of sexual perverts. We are already fighting a huge battle against sexual perverts; with child pornography. Plus, the internet is so full of unsolicited pictures. Do you really want nude pictures of your children all over the internet? I do believe that the more people see of people in the nude the more desensitized people will become. Nurses see naked bodies all day and it...

Do you agree with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's Death Sentence

Gibby97
DillonStapes

In all fairness this in no way my personal opinion on the death penalty. I believe the death penalty should be and remain legal. However in this case I believe Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should serve life in prison. Being from Massachusetts I am very angry with the act he committed on that fateful day. But he should live and he should've suffered in prison the rest of his life. According to the CNN article below, he would suffer in confinement for 23 hours daily with no communication or interaction. In m...

The United States should replace the Electoral College with direct elections

Luharis
ColeTrain

Personally, I've felt that the electoral college has denied democracy by forcing politicians to focus on electoral college votes, rather than the votes of the people. I would like to have a friendly debate on the issue. The structure is as follows: R1 - Acceptance R2 - Arguments R3 - Arguments R4 - Closing Statements, no new arguments This is currently open to anyone with six (6) completed debates....

Say a family has two kids already and they decide that they want a kid that looks a specific way so they spend thousands of dollars to make this child the perfect child in their image how do you think that the other children of that family will feel if their parents slip and say why cant you be more like johnny. and how will those kids feel when the parents like the perfect child more then them how is this fair....

Objective Morality Does Not Exist, Regardless of the Biblical God's Existence

Chaosism
Henlopen

If anyone is willing to accept this debate, I will argue that morality is purely subjective, whether the Christian God of the Bible exists or not. (I am only specifying the Christian God because I am not familiar with other religions.)Definitions [1]Objective : (of a person or their judgment) not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts.Subjective :...

Are computerized tests beneficial to teens?

icecream617
Interval

I honestly think that computerized tests are beneficial to teens because honestly, I think that wasting trees is enough at this point and people often use computers more than paper to do their homework. Also, computerized tests gives them the opportunity to interact with technology. Technology has evolved throughout the centuries and we should acknowledge it by using it. Paper is now veyr old from China in 105 AD. ...
