Genetic differences explain racial IQ gaps

someloser

Comment if interested. The debate should be impossible to accept. If someone manages to accept, it will be counted as a loss.Rules:- Pro and Con should avoid debating the merits of IQ as a metric, or race as a classification system.

Anyone interested in that should feel free to start or challenge a debate on those.<...

Abortion

Alexforpresident

Round 1-Acceptance, Round 2-Cases, Round 3-Rebuttals, Round 4-Defense In this debate, we will strictly be talking about the benefits, harms, and morality of abortion. I will be arguing that abortion has more benefits than harms, while my opponent disagrees on moral reasons. It will be pro's job to argue that the benefits outweigh the harms, and that it is indeed moral for one to acquire an abortion. Con will argue that abortion is immoral, and that it is indeed the killing of the child....
