Who Would Make a Better Animorph?

LogicalLunatic
thett3

First of all, I would not normally challenge someone like Thett to a debate. These people have much more worthwhile things to do than to accept debate challenges from noobs. I will understand completely if Thett decides not to accept this debate. He's a busy guy. However, a few days back, Thett expressed some interest in the topic which I was preparing to debate. That topic was the "Animorphs" series by K.A. Applegate. So, I thought that perhaps Thett would like to debate this topic. I certainl...

Oppressive government is more desirable than no government.

jackh4mm3r

This is a "Lincoln-Douglas" debate; each opponent must have a value and criterion, followed by contentions. Round One is for acceptance and declaring which side you would like to debate: 'oppressive government' or 'no government.' Please excuse the side debate.org has declared I am; it would not let me proceed with the debate without picking a side. Round Two is for opening arguments only. Round Three is for rebuttals and strengthening your case. Next, Round 4 consists of more rebuttals. And fin...

Dinosaurs Lived With People

GarretKadeDupre
PotBelliedGeek

I will be arguing in support of the following resolution:People saw living dinosaurs at some point in history.I'll be using the colloquial definition of the term, which is basically anything that a layman would consider a dinosaur. Voters should judge whether or not I abuse the word. Using it to refer to an alligator, anole, or bird would be abusive; equivocating it with a pterodactyl, mesosaur, or plesiosaur would not.First r...

RESOLUTION: The police should be unarmed.

donald.keller

In response to Puggle999's comment on Tickld.com: "You know what's better than both? Having an unarmed police force who don't even have water cannons, let alone tear gas to fire at either type of protest." Which he then added: "You downvote because you know it is true." Resolution: The police should be unarmed to the point of not even having water cannons. If Puggle666 wishes to accept the debate, he should post in the Tickld Comment....

agennarelli

Hi debaters. This is my first time about to debate. I'm a future Lawyer, so I wanted to test my debating strength. I'm a university freshman by the way, starting the 25th of this month. As I do with all my debating, I like to give backgrounds in order for my opponents to have an understanding. Background: Anyways, I was on the public bus today on my way home from a long day at my university working out issues, and sadly, a woman was beating her child on the bus. He was a little boy, probab...

Does good and evil exist?/Examining scenarios to prove statement

Kai_Piranha
FMAlchemist

This is my first debate, and I decided to start with the topic of whether good and evil exist, using a certain scenario as a jumping point. I am arguing that good and evil do exist. The scenario that I would like to present is the following: If I was talking to someone about something trivial and then suddenly took a gun and shot the person in the head because I felt like it (and for no other reason; the conversation had nothing to do with it), this would be considered evil because I woul...
