Evolution is tried and true and should be taught in the modern school system

TheMinorMiner99

Hi. I am an evolutionist and an atheist, and enjoy talking to people who disagree with me. The way in which we avoid the topic of creation science in school is ridiculous, and needs to be rebuilt, taught using a modern scientific method, which evolution by natural selection provides for us. As multiple lines of evidence shows, the evolution model of life can be tested and has been proven. There is a mosquito in Hawaii who lays its eggs in between the ridges of crickets wings, and when they h...

The Electoral College

Prestigiously-Poor
paintballvet18

In this debate, I will argue that the way the electoral college currently works is not a good way to elect the president. I would prefer to debate with someone genuinely supportive of the electoral college to better understand both points of view. Please keep the debate civilized and on topic, so don't be partisan on other topics. The burden of proof is shared, meaning that I have to prove that the electoral college is bad, and you have to prove that it is good. Round 1 is going to be accept...

should torture be used against terrorists

giantsbane
LucasClarvoe

Many people disagree about whether torture should be used on known terrorists. I believe that torture should be used for various reasons. One reason is torture could prevent lots of "collateral damage", by torturing a terrorist we could find a bomb that would have killed many people if we had not found it. " if we are willing to act in a way that guarantees the misery and death of some considerable number of innocent children, why spare the rod with known terrorists? This shows how if we torture...

Books or Movies?

k.hadija
themoderateamerican

I would pick movies over books, i think that books include the deeper meaning and emotion of some scenes, that can't be expressed in a movie. Books are also more descriptive and movies don't always include everything that happens in the book because they don't have enough screen-time. Reading books can also expand your vocabulary and intelligence....
