boomeranghugs

talent (n) a special natural ability or aptitude If you've never seen Ke$ha sing live don't bother. We have singing greats out there like Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Carrie Underwood, Prince, Kelly Clarkson, etc. and then we have the people that teenagers listen to and end up on the top 40 stations. Which category does Ke$ha fall under? The second one. We have people with true talent in whatever they do like the contestants on SYTYCD and American Idol, albeit some of them weren't all tha...

Voters should be required to post their reasoning behind each vote they make.

Yraelz
Logical-Master

I like debate. I like debate.org. I think it is a really cool idea. However I find myself often dissatisfied with the voters. In debates where I feel I have clearly won its not so bad because to some extent I can justify my loss in my head with the thought, "Wow... those people are idiots!"

Writers debate

philosphical
Vi_Veri

In every round the Pro will present a problem in their story. The Con will then continue this same story with the same characters and settings (where rules apply), and fix the pro...

Man is born pure and through society he becomes corrupt.

Cherymenthol
Puck

Man is by nature good; society is the cause of corruption and vice. However, In society, natural self-love becomes corrupted into a venal pride, which seeks only the good opinion of others and, in so doing, causes the individual to lose touch with his or her true nature; the loss of one's true nature ends in a loss of freedom. In the words of Rosseau, "Man is by nature good. Men are depraved and perverted by society." When out into perspective we realize that what could a newborn child have...
