The Earth being flat, which can go beyond our limited pretense of it.

ChokingChlorine
Zarroette

Okay, I know that in the common sense that the Earth as we know it is to be called round, but did you know that aliens who inhabit worlds may use the term flat as to say that when they view the world from the outside that they can size themselves up to a planet and come up with the term flat as the world is big enough to provide flat land for them? Or there could be the thought that the Earth is not perfectly rounded, and thus is cast down to be in the category of the flat worlds, if you are a p...

Infinity Is Not a Real Number

Subutai
thespiveyman

This debate will probably mark the end of my use of math debates. It's an old one I challenged someone to a while back, but they never accepted it. This debate is open to anyone, and lacks a formal structure. The first round will be for acceptance, and there'll be two rounds of debate. I will not define infinity itself, as any definition will confer an unfair advantage to one debater, but I will define what a real number is. A real number is a value that represents a quantity alo...

I was barely alive in the 20th century (my profile age is fake) but it seems like it was pretty cool. I guess it was probably about the same as the 21st century but I kind of wish I could have experienced it....

Limits of a right to procreate

DanielleNicole3238
MortalWombat

There should be a law in place with mandatory criteria individuals should have to meet in order to procreate. I feel that many parents are not qualified to care for another life. We already regulate who may and may not adopt children. . . I just feel the criteria should be more strict and apply to reproduction in general as well. I think this shouldve taken place when resources were developed to rescue children due to bad parenting Parents are solely responsible for a childs well-being, healt...

The Titanic Conspiracy Theory

1Historygenius
FaustianJustice

This debate regards the infamous Titanic conspiracy theory promoted by some conspiracy theorists. The theory explains that the ocean liner RMS Titanic was actualy switched with her sister ship RMS Olympic. The Olympic, considered an unprofitable vessel, was then sunk to collect insurance money. I argue that this conspiracy theory is not credible and did not happen. My opponent must argue that the switch did happen.

Should Dad's be allowed paternity leave from work.

AveyC
SnaxAttack

Hello. I believe Dad's should get paternity leave from work not only because it will form a stronger bond with the child but because Dad's are ordinary people turned into hero's by love. Although the Mother's do the child birth and bearing I believe both parents should get an amount of time off to bond with the child, but maybe the Mother should get about 1 month more due to the pain and hard work of childbirth....
