This is a picture of a tree.

I will be arguing that the following is a picture of a tree:https://vienna-wv.com/images/tree.jpgThe picture is clearly a picture of a tree, because the pictured object has a brown trunk which terminates in green leaves. This is what trees look like, therefore the picture is of a tree.I look forward to my opponent's response....

If a claim is true, then it is not false.

Ockham
vi_spex

I will begin with definitions. A claim is a proposition, something that can be true or false. For example, "the sky is blue" is a claim, and it is true. By contrast, "Lord Voldemort exists" is a claim that is false. True means corresponding to reality, like my belief that I am sitting in a chair. False means failing to correspond to reality, like a crazy person's belief that he is Napoleon. Now, given these definitions, we can clearly see that if a claim is true, then it is not false. I...

How is suicide a crime? The government said that if a person commits suicide, and had insurance, their family shouldn't(heirs) inherit the money.

Destroy Yourself

PowerPikachu21

In round one, my opponent will accept the debate and then pose a topic, which he or she must post which side he/she is on. In each of the following rounds, both pro and con must post (at least) 3 sources that are clearly against his/her side. For example, if my opponent is gun-control, she/he must post 3 sources, or arguments, that are anti-gun control. (And consequently, I will have to post 3 sources that are pro-gun control and point out why they are wrong) The debaters w...

PETA is full of idiots and should go away. Anyone who disagrees will soon see my side is right. I am not anti-vegan, in fact I think vegans are sensible for caring about animals but PETA is just insane....
