SampleDebater

Hello! This will be my first debate in a while due to school. I will argue for Mr. Donald J. Trump and against Hillary because I solemnly believe that she will be a disaster for the United States. This debate is for Pro's and Con's of both candidates, so I expect Con to argue why Hillary is good, not just why Trump is bad. The format of this debate is as follows: Round 1: Acceptance Only Round 2: Arguments....NO REBUTTALS Round 3: Rebuttals Round 4: Conclusion Good Luck to my opponen...

Beloved classic children's books being made into hollywood movies

Disclaimer: This is my first debate (on this website). I did a formal debate once at school, so I am aware that there are certain rules/etiquette, but otherwise I'm pretty clueless about how to go about this or how best to use this website. Anyway here goes... It saddens me when I hear that yet another famous classic children's book is being made into yet another hollywood blockbuster movie. It is a well-known and very evident fact that movies fall short (sometimes hard on their faces) wh...

I believe that god does not exist for many reasons. I will just be saying for now the simple reason of logic. Its not very hard to use your brain and when i use mine, i dont really see a spirit outside of the universe. The universe is everything in the world and it doesnt make sense if something is outside of it. Im not going to belive in something that i cant see or something that there is absolutely no evidence for. Also why did God only perform miracles back when nobody needed them, i mean he...
