C-14 in diamonds proves the earth is young

pr.Daniel_Jordan
roguetech

C-14 is an isotope of carbon. It's radioactive and the decay rate is approximately 5700 years which means that it can't last for more than 100,000 years. It's been reported in coal deposits which are supposedly millions of years old -- however, I will not use this as an argument, since contamination will be the common response. I will use C-14 in diamond, one of the hardest materials known to mankind. The existence of C-14 in this material is known in the conventional liter...

The media Promotes a Selfish Society

Kaibigan

THE PRESS PROMOTES A SELFISH SOCIETY FREEDOM OF THE PRESS OR FREEDOM FOR THE PRESS ? This is the catch cry of the FOURTH ESTATE...is it a declaration of the need for independence to promote a freedom from persecution and prosecution to allow the news to be reported in an unbiased form thus enabling it to expose wrongdoing or is it a protection mechanism for the media magnates to strengthen their positions, to enhance their wealth and secure and grow their power and influence ?...

"Anchor baby" term too misleading and insulting to use

roguetech
forexhowser

The term "anchor baby" is misleading, insulting, and should not be used. Politicians and political commentators routinely use this word without defining it. In context, it can mean various things, including "first generation citizen", "any child of an immigrant", "any child of an undocumented immigrant", "citizen child of an undocumented immigrant". Therefore, it's misleading. It is insulting, because it is referring to a "baby" - an infant or young child - which did not choose the conditions...

This debate will focus on this question of constitutional legality: Whether any adverse action taken by Old Dominion University against the students responsible for the creation and display of sexually suggestive signs on or about August 26, 2015 can be constitutionally justified. For reference: http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/25/us/virginia-old-dominion-university-sigma-nu-offensive-banners/ For reference, here are transcriptions of three of the banners in question: "Rowdy and Fun.

Drugs are not victimless crimes

Hero_Liberator
ErenBalkir

First round is for acceptance and pleasantries. Second round is opening statements and arguments(no rebuttal of other's arguments) Third round is rebuttal and so on. The burden of proof lies on both individuals to back up their claims. I'd have to prove how they are without a victim, and my fellow debater will need to prove how it causes victims. This is also the same with any other claim made. I'd like to limit the false dichotomy, slippery slope, appeal to authority, and straw man log...

The US should abolish the death penalty

tejretics

This debate is impossible to accept. If you accept without my permission, you automatically forfeit the debate. To accept, please apply in the comments. Pro should present his or her arguments in Round 1 and cannot argue in the final round so we each have an even # of rounds [since I'm not arguing in this round]. No new arguments in the final round....
