Pope Francis Deserved to be TIME's Person of the Year in 2013

Atheist-Independent

This debate will be about Pope Francis I's selection of TIME magazine's "Person of the Year" in 2013. I will take the Con side of the premise that Pope Francis deserved the honor as Person of the Year. I have made this debate impossible to accept, and if you are interested in debating this subject, I ask you to either PM me or leave a comment. Also, it would be proffered if you could state your religion (or lack of one) beforehand. T...

All Matter is Sentient.

Envisage

All Matter is Sentient. Panpsychism holds this view as do I. However Atheism would seem to hold the view that the opposite is true. Correct me if I am wrong but the causation of the universe for atheists would appear to be the 'God of Random Chance, the last god off 'the rank' by default.

Should buffer zones for pro-life protesters exist around abortion clinics?

Stefy

The main argument against the existence of buffer zones is that they violate rights to freedom of speech and assembly for pro-life protesters, however, free speech and assembly rights do not extend to harassment. By being able to go directly up to a woman going to the clinic to argue with her and try to stop her violates her legal right to go to the clinic. One of the reasons that pro-life use in their argument is that the suicide rate for women after they have had abortions is extremely high....

Opponent will argue that homosexuality IS genetic in origin. First round is for acceptance....

Biological Evolution across family, order, class...kingdom, etc.

Skynet
ChristianPunk

This debate originally started as ID vs. Evolution. ChristianPunk has contended that Evolution does not really include the Origin of Life (in this case, Abiogenesis) but only the Origin of Species after life began. He wants to exclusively debate Evolution, because he believes his strength is biology rather than chemistry. I understand this, but it makes it difficult to directly engage the two stances of Creation and Evolution because in Creation, both the Origin of Life and Origin of Species occ...

Hitler has other attributes besides his racism than should be considered more often

AsianGenius
KatieKat99

Many people associate Hitler with being a 'racist bastard' but he has done many other things that should be regarded as noteworthy and many even praised for. For example during the few years before the WW2 he brought germans off the streets and into offices. Death rates declined. Literacy rates increased. Fewer babies died of disease. By 1939 Germany thanks to Hitler's leadership Germany had paid back 90% of its debt, removed france's poisonous tithes on germany's people industries, and def...
