Can Middle school students get out of school to have lunch?

My opinion about getting out of campus for lunch is that it should be allowed because it should be allowed because the school prepare us for the adult world, so we should be able to deal with the fact that they are becoming responsible of getting out and choosing what to eat. The school should also have a place to have lunch. In other places in the world, like Brazil, kids can stay in school for lunch or get out to buy something to eat, and they don't get hurt or don't come back to school. Some...

A hypothetical and interesting compromise on gun control and gun rights

Thechuck16

This will be my first debate on this website. I am eager to learn how this site works as well as seeing others opinions on things that I feel strongly about. I have 3 pieces of gun control legislature that have either been advanced or considered by gun control advocates that I disagree with. But in the spirit of compromise I grant them legitimacy of their laws so long as they grant the compromise. 1). Many gun control advocates say that Universal background checks (UBC's) will close the looph...

More than half of all rape accusations are likely false

I_am_Spartacus

Round 1. Acceptance Round 2-4. Arguments and rebuttals. Round 5. Closing argument with no rebuttals. I believe that there is now mounting evidence which suggest that false reporting of rape is indeed very high. The lack of thorough studies and societal will to explore the real extent of false rape reports notwithstanding, there are already many in-depth studies by independent judges and prosecutors which conclusively show that reported rapes to the police are fraught with false claims, very...

"Hate Crime" Legislation

Stopthepc
Luma

The State of Indiana is voting on implementing hate crime laws today. I think this is completely wrong. Why should your skin color or sexual preferences make crimes against you any worse than a crime against a straight white person? I am so sick of our society trying to divide people based on race, religion, and sexual orientation. And all of these laws have 1 thing in common: They are designed to belittle and demean straight white people and Christians. I personally have been attacked and b...

ViceRegent
Sarasaz

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheist know truth from fiction?...
