Is Homosexuality wrong?

Retrospace18
nerdyandnotsoproud

This question has been raised in many different forms, on this site. Mostly in the form of "Should gay marriage be allowed?". But never to my knowledge has it been discussed directly. So the questions stands. "Is Homosexuality wrong?" Homosexuality is not wrong. 1)Many people, automatically bring up the bible, when faced with this question. And thats fine, for those that believe the bible. But, what about those that dont? Sure the bible has been used to set the foundations of countries an...

Backpacks are better than purses.

I am a woman who doesn't carry a purse. I think they are frivolous and a waste of money. Many women carry purses as a fashion statement and spend more on a new purse than their car payment (ex. Coach brand). I say just use a backpack. They are more practical and you can carry books around which will give you something to pass time if you get stuck somewhere. Plus you don't need a closet full to match your outfits. One for all works just fine!...

Black Rednecks and White Liberals

Paradigm_Lost
Danielle

I recently read a book entitled "Black Rednecks and White Liberals," written by a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute, a conservative think-tank on the Stanford University campus. http://www.tsowell.com/Rednecks.htm Needless to say, the book is compelling and chock-full of well-sourced material lending credence to his suppositions. There are a myriad of topics contained within the book, however, as the title of the book suggests, I would like to discuss, well, black rednecks and white li...

Abortion is Prima Facie Morally Wrong

Apologician
TheSkeptic

I'm going to offer a brief outline of the pro-life position that I defend, and I will engage in further argumentation in the subsequent rounds. The fundamental issue regarding the abortion debate is not women's rights or other factors which concern personal autonomy, but over the status of the unborn child. Variants of the personal choice argument presuppose that the unborn child is not a human person, for if the unborn child is indeed a human person, then no amount of freedom justifies its e...

There should be an age restriction to the people who can participate in debates.

Rob

First of all, I have wanted to start this debate for a while, but my problem was wondering which side I fell on. There are many young adults on here, <18, that are very capable of forming logical, rational arguments. With that said, there are also some who can/choose/do not do this. However, since I believe this site's main endeavor is the creation of knowledge, in order to not chance missing out on knowledge, we should not restrict anyone from debating, and that is why I'm against creatin...

Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs

frank_gore_is_da_best

Claim: Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs Argument: Over 98% of abortion cases happen prior to the 21st week of pregnancy(1). Over 59% of abortion cases happen prior to the 9th week of pregnancy(1). My argument will rest on maintaining that abortion is morally permissible at least up to nine weeks into the pregnancy. 1. http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abortion.html...

Let me start this debate with a definition. Cat: Any of several carnivores of the family Felidae, as the lion, tiger, leopard or jaguar, etc. This of course also includes your common domestic cat. Animal: any member of the kingdom Animalia, comprising multicellular organisms that have a well-defined shape and usually limited growth, can move voluntarily, actively acquire food and digest it internally, and have sensory and nervous systems that allow them to respond rapidly to stimuli:...
