Simple debate. Definitions: *Animal testing: Animal testing, also known as animal experimentation, animal research, and in vivo testing, is the use of non-human animals in experiments (although some research about animals involves only natural behaviors or pure observation, such as a mouse running a maze or field studies of chimp troops).

imabench

This is my 300th debate and I wanted to debate something ive always wanted to debate, whether or not cats are indeed liquids.

Definitions: Liquid: An object with a fixed mass and fixed volume, but does not have a fixed shape and instead match the shape of the container they are poured into. Cats: Demons sent to Earth fro...

The earth is probably less than 10,000 years old.

GarretKadeDupre
bluesteel

In this debate, Pro will argue the evidence that the earth is younger than 10,000 years, and Con will argue the evidence that the earth is older than 10,000 years. The debate is to be determined by the preponderance of evidence. Years are taken as units of time in the conventional sense as presently measured, not in an allegorical or poetic sense.The claim that the earth is less than 10,000 years old is part of Young Earth Creationism (YEC). In this debat...

People do not consider Embryos to be living because of the fact that they are not fully developed, and only consist of a few cells. But for those who are pro-life, they have the oppurtuni...

Over half of all reported rapes are likely false

I_am_Spartacus
Death23

Round 1. Acceptance Round 2-4. Arguments and rebuttals. Round 5. Closing argument with no rebuttals. I believe that there is now mounting evidence which suggest that false reporting of rape is indeed very high. The lack of thorough studies and societal will to explore the real extent of false rape reports notwithstanding, there are already many in-depth studies by independent judges and prosecutors which conclusively show that reported rapes to the police are fraught with false claims, very...
