Voluntary Euthanasia

Varrack

PrefaceVarrack approached me about doing this debate, and I think it will be an interesting discussion. Euthanasia is an important question now more than ever, as more and more places begin considering the merits of some form of euthanasia. I look forward to an engaging and insightful discourse.There is a minimum of 2,500 ELO needed to vote on this debate. Debaters have 72 hours and 10,000 characters per round to make their cases....

Should The Definition of Bullying Be Changed

DropoffStudios
epic7373

The definition of bully "a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker."(Source Oxford Dictionary and Google Definitions). How is it possible that one would have the audacity to call a victim "weaker" than the persecutor. Just because one is perceived to be weaker by the bully doesn't mean that they are. It is unethical to demean a victim of bullying, yet we are allowing Oxford dictionary and Google to do so. How could we do such a thing. We need to take a stan...

The burden of proof is shared.DefinitionsAbortion: 'a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus'

I will be arguing in favor of the existence of two distinct gospels, offering two distinct salvation messages. While there is certainly some overlap, such as the fact that both are concerned with the New Testament promised to Israel, both are distinct from each other in key doctrinal areas such as salvation and prophecy.Round 1 -...

Fall: To drop or descend due to the force of gravity. Round structure: Round 1: Con defines words and establishes round structure. Pro make...

It is actually absurd bombing a country, while violating millions of laws domestically and internationally. How would you feel living under the threat from the sky 24/7/365? U.S government claims the civilian casualties like this "if any males that are of the same height in the vicinity of the attack are not counted as casualties". So if I'm the same height and in that particular area where the drone is going to attack and I die, I'm a terrorist? The government also claims that the drones are se...

lord_megatron
rayhaan779

I think tower defense games are the best category of action games as they require a lot of thinking skills, quick co-ordination and less blood and gore. Some action games have too much blood and gore and difficult controls. I prefer tower-defense games like Kingdom Rush, Bashing grounds etc....
