Multiculturism causes racism

PrinceOfTheFire
brian_eggleston

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzLECtFT4aU I got a comment in a previosu debate stating that multi-culturism was the only form to stop racial hatred I say that it is false, because only when two or more ethnic groups are forced to share the same living space and resources, racial hatred can occur. Thus liberals have it backwards: It is MULTICULTURISM that causes racial hatred I put forward the following proofs 1) Sweden before and after the open-borders police started in 1996. Before 199...

Convert me to Christianity

Cerebral_Narcissist
Charles0103

In this debate PRO shall take the side of Christianity and, using evidence and/or logic, shall attempt to construct a convincing case to convert CON to the doctrine of Christianity. CON shall attempt to point out flaws in PRO's arguments. Note that it is not required that PRO actually converts CON, rather that after all things are considered that PRO has made a case for conversion that has survived CON's attacks. As PRO is making the case in the affirmative the burden of proof falls upon h...

Abortions are morally wrong.

Freeman
mongeese

I will be negating the resolution that abortions are morally wrong, and since most abortions occur in the first trimester this debate will only focus on abortions that take place during that time period. Moral philosophers, theologians, and medical practitioners have argued about the ethics behind abortion for quite some time. And many deeply ethical people have come to view abortion as being morally reprehensible. However, most of the arguments against abortion can be shown to be fallacious...

Personal pictures as avatars should be disallowed on debate.org.

If this site is about ideas, then there is no need for faces. What a person looks like has absolutely no bearing on the validity of a point so why introduce that data? Personal photos could easily be faked. They pose a distraction. They encourage prejudice and stereotyping. They reduce personal security. They serve no relevant purpose. They encourage classism. They encourage sexism....

Evolution, the theory that all life is the result of purely undirected processes, is probably false.

Science is a methodological approach to understanding the properties and behaviors of the physical world. The scientific method relies on hypothesizing based on already known facts, making predictions based on this hypothesis, and testing the hypothesis via experimentation. The scientific "truth" is that scientific theory which best explains the phenomenon in question, where "best" is defined as "most adequate." Unfortunately, this can often be subjective. Nevertheless, when applicable cases ari...

Really what is the truth about the earth and how we got here?

GodSands

20 billion years ago. Nothingness. Then suddenly some unknown atom massed outwards into space, if only we could get our hands on this "atom", as there was space for this explosion to expand into there had to be time and existing matter there before. According to science outside the universe, it's a void where nothing can exist. So how did anything come together to begin with? So far I would say im being logical. Then the next part is chemical evolution, how and where did all these chemicals get...

Everyone knows about vote bombing, which is the practice of a small group pouring all their votes with no justification onto one person. Purposes for doing so may range from just wanting to raise each others' percentages to purposely trashing another person's win rate. Whether or not CWO, as made infamous by the other debate, exists to vote bomb or not, one fact is clear: vote bombing exists. I myself have been victim to it several times. The first few by a single person who made several a...

The new testament is without contradiction.

izbo10
BennyW

The way this debate will go is I will show that there are contradictions, the person I am debating will attempt to show that there are no contradictions in the bible. Round 1 will merely be accepting the challenge. In round 2 I will begin my arguments for a contradiction. I define contradictions in the bible a the bible taking both sides of a mutually exclusive dichotomy. Mutually exclusive meaning that if one is true the other is by default false. Good luck to my opponent....

Who is the worst U.S. president ever?

imabench
1Historygenius

You pick a US president who you think was the worst president in U.S. history, I will argue why he is NOT the worst president... 5 rounds, 8000 characters a round, go nuts :) He/She who accepts the debate can state their pick and then proceed on saying why they think that __________ was the worst president ever P.S. In case your were wondering, I did create one of these before but the person who accepted the challenge never responded after the second round, but that was just for those...
