Resolved: Marijuana should be legalized in the United States.

I thought this would be an interesting debate because I'll probably be up against one of my fellow conservatives and I haven't debated this topic before. Here is the round format: Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Opening arguments Round 3: Rubuttals Round 4: Further rebuttals and conclusion The rules are fairly standard. Forfeiture is an immediate loss of conduct points. Proper spelling and grammar will be used but occasional lapses are fine. Sources are not required but are strongly suggeste...

The same-sex marriage debate is unethically rooted in Christianity

Grayneer
TruthWillOut

If you have ever glanced at the news in the past year you have probably heard something about same-sex marriages being legalized on a federal level. As a matter of fact, this may be one of the most important debates of today and if you ask me I'm clearly for it and wondering why it already hasn't happened. However it didn't take me long to figure this out. When researching, I came across a few refutations and videos against same-sex marriage and conclusively regarded them as rubbish. But I not...

vi_spex has claimed in comments before that he literally can't lose a debate. I negate that claim by making two points. 1. I myself have beaten vi_spex at debating twice.

Challenge debate, Please read carefully! Everything good has an evil side and every evil has a good

o0jeannie0o

I would like to test a theory I have found in a text on Wicca. Wiccans believe that nothing is inherently evil or inherently good. That all "good" brings a bit of "evil" and that all "evil" brings a little "good". An example in the book is that a devastating flood will bring nutrient rich soil for plants to grow. I would like my opponent to come up with the most evil things and/or the most good things that can happen (on earth). Multiple statements or "events" in each argument preferred....
