Karma exists not as a physical reality, but as a psycho-spiritual reality for all self-aware beings.

Strycora
ATHOS

Last time, my opponent was so unprepared for my argument that the debate never got off of the ground on account of a double forfeiture. I will be arguing for the existence of Karma. Karma is defined here as the psycho-spiritual principle that the conscious intentions of any self aware individual are the only causes of mental anguish and personal fulfillment. The BOP is on me to prove the existence of this psycho-spiritual principle. If my opponent can prove that mental anguish or personal...

Kanye West is better than The Beatles

GodLevel
XionChan

Whether they are inspired, influenced or amazed by, Kanye's presence graces many new artists across all genres with an appreciation of the art form itself, Kanye is a true musician, where else do you have something like Chief Keef and Bon Iver on the same album? Artists will be using Kanye's innovative techniques with sampling and collaborating for decades to come. Kanye and Lars Ulrich worked together on production for this Pusha T song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAFVu_A4OwQ...

m93samman should rejoin debate.org as an active member

Greetings to all users of debate.org. In an extended hiatus, I was overcame to login to DDO for a reason that I can't quite place my tongue on. Upon logging in, I have found that the website has changed considerably. The active users I once new are for the most part gone, and a new set of users has taken their place. The website format is largely changed, and I find navigating it far more difficult than I care to admit. As I currently see it, I find no compelling reason to resume activity...

Social networking sites are beneficial

discsync
Connor98

First of all, social networking sites can help you gain confidence. Social Networking sites such as facebook, google +, and twitter lets you talk and argue or communicate with millions of people. The ones who cannot gain self confidence in real life could practice their self-confidence in the social networking sites. Since there are more people you can connect and communicate in the social networking sites, you can practice your self-confidence with different kinds of people you can't meet in y...

The Armenian Genocide Was By Definition a "Genocide"

Spedman
tahir.imanov

I have heard very mixed accounts of what happened during the event known as the Armenian Genocide. I myself am not an ethnic Armenian, but I love Armenian culture which has graciously been shared by one of my favorite rock bands, System of a Down. There seems to be a lot of controversy behind this event concerning what actually happened and whether or not it was Genocide. I believe that in definition it was indeed a Genocide. Genocide: the systematic and widespread extermination or attempted...
