Maturity and physical and online presence of youth in relation to an adult or young adult.

jedijwk
Comeatmebruh666

I believe that youth should be taken more seriously, even when presented with logic and proof of intelligence some adults still claim to be more intelligent and mature than youth. I argue that in some cases(nowadays probably half or more) of the times when children are belittled and told they are not on the same level as adults mentally is absurd, just because they are youth doesn't mean they should be told they can't have the same mental capacity as an adult....

Your opinion, while amusing, is irrelevant.

CraftyMiscreant
CuriousFear

As the pro in this debate, I will prove that your opinions, even though they are amusing and fun to entertain, is completely and utterly irrelevant. Definition to opinion: "A view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge." Unless you are a professional practitioner of some sort that is on the job and exercising your profession, your views about the world are completely irrelevant. I'm not denying that it is wrong to have an opinion, but expressing yo...

The Earth is spherical and the Flat Earth hypothesis is false

Zaephou
Dereklewis

It is a widely accepted fact that the Earth, and all planetary objects are spherical (even though they may not be perfect spheres), and yet Flat Earth believers insist that the Earth is a flat cuboid travelling through space with a Sun and moon with a diameter of 32 km above it and provides absolutely no evidence for their ridiculous claims while disregarding the countless amounts of evidence we have for a spherical Earth as government lies. Flat Earth believers simply reject evidence such as...

Mid-century cooling was primarily anthropogenic

Stupidape
epidexipteryx

One of my first global climate change debates my opponent brought up the mid-century cooling trend. Stating that a lot of oil was burned during that time period and that since there was cooling in that time period fossil fuels don't generate Co2. The time period was 1945-1975.I knew there was something wrong with the logic, but I couldn't tell what. Anyways, here's the answer. Sulfur emissions

Is this site failing?

bearski
Comeatmebruh666

I say it is for the following reasons 1. Fewer and fewer debates are being started. Don't know about other parts of the site as getting to them is rather confusing 2. Going back to debates people can shut down a debate by pretending to accept a challenge but never posting an argument. That sort of behavior should not be tolerated. If you think it is a bad topic ignore it. Don't deny others the chance to participate just because you don't like the topic. 3. A glitch which can't have gone...
