"How can we not routinely screen young people for mental illness when it is such an important cause of suffering and death?" In the following viewpoint, Richard Friedman says that many teenagers suffer with depression and other mental illnesses and don't get the help they need. Tragically, some of these teens end up taking their own lives. Friedman thinks school-based screening programs like Teen Screen are an effective way to identify kids at risk for depression and prevent suicide. Friedman b...

KrispyKreme is Superior to Dunkin' Donuts.

Duke-Of-Democracy
bobaganooshplatter

There is a great divide between American citizens that is not often addressed, or for that matter heard of, or even argued over: it is the schism of donut choices. I intend to prove in this debate that KrispyKreme is a superior donut establishment to Dunkin Donuts. Considering that a restaurant such as this should be judged on its most prominent product, an attempt to debate coffee or cinnamon rolls (or other irrelevant consumables) will result in forfeit. Anybody can argue this debate, just sta...

LeonPikinito
connorjfield

Religion should be taught in public schools, however the material taught should not be bias and should be reviewed by someone who actually knows about the religion. There is nothing worse than ignorance. In order for our country to grow religion should be taught in public schools so that people can learn about others beliefs and points of views. This is fundamental so that future generations be open minded as well as tolerant of other people and their views. This is the simple opinion of a s...

Buddhism (Pro) or Christianity (Con)

Pase66
CultLeader34

The debate is simple enough. Which religion, of the two, is more relevant in our present day 21st century, first world society. Which one offers more truth, and which one is "better" (I left the word open to interpretation, as it will be up to the voters, based on the arguments that both sides give, to decide which one is better in their own terms). Definition of Truth: the quality or state of being true http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/truth Definition of True: agreeing with the fac...

My opponent should be arguing the contrary. I am not choosy about how my debates are conducted....all I ask for is.... a) Please allow round one to be for acc...
