Schools With Their Unnecessary Rules

Scotty553
ClashnBoom

Schools have started to get on my nerves with their stupid and unnecessary rules (Especially my school). MY SCHOOL: ALL BOY SCHOOL I go to school to be educated, not told to get a bloody hair cut! (For the record it's not like down to my shoulders). I don't even get that rule! They say it looks better and looks better on the school, but they should know that short hair doesn't look good on everybody and also some people who can't have long hair it honestly destroys their confidence. For...

If you have any questions or concerns, please voice them in the comment section before accepting the debate. Structure: Round 1 = Acceptance Round 2 = Initial Argument(s) Round 3 = Reb...

Should drugs be legalized

Quan-Douglas
Jimbus

Apart from it simply being one's moral right to do drugs as it tangibly effects them and only them, the practical reasons are numerous. A significant portion of the incarcerated population were imprisoned because of drug related crimes. Each inmate costs the government hence the people money. If drugs were to be legalized and such inmates acquitted, it would lower expenditures dramatically. Furthermore, the main source of income for many crime organizations is drugs. Legalizing drugs would r...

Science definitively proves Creationism to be factual

FrozenLichBox
PericIes

Science clearly proves that Creationism is, in fact, very real. To prove my argument, I will make four points (out of many possibilities, for the sake of expidency): 1. The argument that "nature" has the power to create life is ludicrous. My evidence for this argument is derived from logic (the science of reason): If pure chance can create life, than why can't humans? We are an intelligent race which can synthesise chemicals and clone animals, so why can't we produce the protien...
