Should the death penalty be legal?

Scmiedforge
FollowerofChrist1955

Rules: I'll be taking the position of the Con, you will take the position of the Pro. We are both Christians so quoting of the Bible is a legitimate defense of our beliefs, but also please include non-religious reasons for your beliefs as well. Round 1 is for acceptance, Round 2 is for arguments, Round 3 is for rebuttals. Thank you for considering participating in this debate....

Music Challenge #2

Opsianos
Beginner

Right...so, the last one that was 7 months ago (wow, time flies) pretty much flopped due to me being unable to submit recordings. So, here goes another one! Rules and Conditions 1. Each person must provide ONE original performance of any music per round IN ROUNDS 2 AND 3; round 1 being simply for acceptance, and round 4 being a backup round in case if anything goes wrong (taking a page out of Smithereens' book). Only you (yes, you) are to be pla...

Should we be allowed to clone

21frykahla
SavvyShafe

No, we shouldn't be able to clone because it devalues human lives. If you clone yourself then you are just a copy there is nothing special about you. The success rate of cloning is very low and it is very expensive. If I was to have a pet that died then why would I spend $100,000 to get an exact clone of the dog when I can buy like 4 dogs for that price? We might even develop a new disease from forming new genes. People who are cloned maybe viewed differently or viewed as a lesser citizen then a...

Yes, I think he will be a good president for many reasons like he knows how to run things! Donald Trump is a successful business man and he will make us successful as well. He isn't in office and he has done so much already like saving jobs from going to Mexico and creating jobs in United States. He has talked to many foreign country which will make our alliances stronger so countries have our backs. He has a great plan to lower taxes which will decrease the price of everything and also raise mi...

Should we stop protecting Taiwan in return for Chinas peaceful resolution of the South China Sea

MehItsaName
RonPaulConservative

I support the following plan: the United States should stop supplying Taiwan with weapons in return for peaceful resolution of the South China Sea. 1: Relations A. The US/China relationship has reached a dangerous tipping point-overcoming hostility is vital: David Lampton, who is chairman of the board of the Asia foundation B. The plan is the only way to reverse this trend, resolving Taiwan overcomes any other impediment to strong relations: Charles Glaser, who is a professor of political a...

The Bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ Historically Occurred

divergent_ambon
Lupricona

First Round is acceptance, treating first round as anything but acceptance is a forfeit. Read all instructions for pre-acceptance requirements. Last opponent did not and garnered an automatic forfeit. I've made this debate impossible to accept to begin with, but this is a reiteration.This debate is over whether Jesus, a Judean individual in the first century, rose from the de...

Thesis. Progressives are a danger to the United States of America, freedom itself, and individual liberty. I believe progressive ideology is terrible for our society. Your argument is not against capitalism or other systems, but to defend progressive ideology. Round 1. Acceptance....

God, as depicted in the Holy Bible, is not benevolent

Black-Jesus
xxmanguyxx

I just want a simple, easy and polite debate about religion, which I'm aware is akin to trying to get clean hands washing your hands in a mud pit, but I'm gonna try anyway. And yes, I am aware that this debate has been done hundreds of times.I am going to argue that God, the almighty creator depicted in the Holy Bible, is not benevolent, or...
