'fair trade' not 'free trade'

linate
Aerogant

i am an advocate of "fair trade" not free trade.... or at least "managed trade", not laissez faire trade. the primary flaw with free trade is the idea of the "race to the bottom". countries compete with each other so much that it's a detriment to everyone.... they have to start cutting regulations and wages etc just to compete. perhaps for a country that is just starting to develop, or in the process of developing, they being on the receiving end will reap benefits of something they wouldn't...

bible is not clear: faith = justification + works... OR faith + works = justification

linate
TittySprinkler69

to lay the best examples of the ambiguity, we have two apparently conflicting versions of the story of abraham and his justification. james 2 20You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is uselessd ? 21Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23And the scripture was fulfilled that says, "Abra...

Penguins are superior to all other birds

ThatChristianGuy
crushboy79

The Pro side of this debate argues that penguins are the most superior family of bird which currently inhabits the planet Earth. Penguins are able to swim, an ability not possessed by other aviary specimens. Penguins also do not sit on their eggs as other disrespectful feathered animals do, but the eggs sit on their feet covered in a layer of the fathers' feathers. The con side of this argument must select a kind of bird and convince the audience of said bird's superiority to penguins. Go....

"Yahweh" was an Extraterrestrial who came to Earth from Mars around 4000 B.C.

Since the guy who apparently claimed that his personal name was pronounced Yahwehwas EXTREMELY long-lived & had a POWERFUL psychic ability called telekinesis (tk) or psychokinesis (pk).& Ive never heard of any Terrestrial who's been that long-lived or had such a strong psychic ability, I postulate that he was an Extraterrestrial. Since there doesn't seem to be any record of "Yahweh" before the Genesis of the Bible & Adam & Eve,<...

Commercialization in education is Ethical or non Ethical

shreeji
ashwin.sharma921

Commercialization of education has been a fairly recent trend in China resulting from the educational reform in the last two decades. It mainly materializes itself in mushrooming private schools at different levels and public and private universities at high education level. In a sense, it has added a financial element to the qualifications of attending private schools and public and private universities. Undoubtedly, it affects millions of families. As a result, it also changes the traditional...

God does not Consider Homosexuality a Sin

ThoughtsandThoughts
Truth_seeker

This debate presupposes that God is real. For the purpose of voting, please treat God's existence as a hypothetical scenario if you question the validity of His existence. Truth_seeker and I have decided to debate this, and he will accept burden of proof (message me if you want me to adjust the debate in some way). Definitions: --God: The Christian God referred to in the Old Testament and the New Testament. --Homosexuality: Relating to sexual intercourse between same-sex people --Si...

Online relationships don't work

Truth_seeker
TheShadowCupcake

I know i would've posted this when i was younger, but guess it'll have to do lol I argue that online relationships don't work for the reasons that we as humans need physical interaction (face-to-face communication, hugging, etc.) While yes, they might work for an extent, eventually, you will need to see each other in person. Online relationships of any kind can never substitute for real life relationships. Online relationships can get superficial as you both cannot know who the real person is...

Stricter Gun Control? Or Fine the Way it is? Or Less Gun Control?

hsif
Vajrasattva-LeRoy

All topics on gun control have been won by the side for gun control, so I will try to reverse that. I wish for a proper and respectable discussion on gun control in United States and how strict/lenient it should be. My position on gun control is moderate; current legislation will work, but I do not agree with the Hughes Amendment or the Importation Ban portion of the Gun Control Act of 1968....
