Fox News's detrimental impact on America

emj32
RoyLatham

I've now challenged RoyLatham to the debate. I wanted to challenge him to this resolution a couple weeks ago, but my finals schedule prevented me from doing such. We've agreed to all the specifics of the debate. Resolution: Fox News has had a negative impact on the American electorate, and the way news i...

Resolved: The average intelligence of a Fox News Anchor is = or < the average intelligence of a rock

imabench
Wallstreetatheist

The resolution is pretty straightforward, Pro must argue why the average Fox News anchorman is about as smart as a rock or less than that of a rock, while the con must argue that Fox News anchormen are capable of intellectual thought, reasoning, and logical conclusions based on evidence. First round is acceptance only :D...

Man rapes 14 month old daughter. He should be put to death

JJ.Birkey
Rational_Thinker9119

In Missouri, a man rapes his 14 month old daughter, while the girlfriend watches. He killed the little girl by strangulation, the force of the impact would have killed her. The man is charged with first degree murder, the woman charged with second degree, sentence is undermined. Death Penalty should be used for this because the man took away the innocence of the this little girl, let alone for the murder. Yes, it is immoral, but so is the actions of this man and woman, they together, murdered th...

9/11: All conspiracy theories about 9/11 are painfully false.

Zdawg
Ozzyhead

If anyone out there believes an alternate reality of the events of 9/11 and thinks they can prove it, I challenge you. If you believe the US government was behind it, it was a controlled demolition, there were no planes, it was a space beam, Larry Silverstein did it, or it was done so we could go to war in the middle east, or any other crazy theory, please prove it....

I believe that If North Korea were to Invade South Korea, then they would eventually lose the war against South Korea with US support. Con must argue how the North Koreans would guarantee to win the war WITHOUT any foreign help (like from China or Russia) 5 rounds, 6000 character limit Con may use the first round for acceptance or they can post their arguments....

Canada should help Libya before helping their own country first?!

Magelina
mb852

In my opinion, Canada should help their own country first. They should help their country as quick as they can so then after that they could help Libya. I'm not saying that Canada should not help other countries although, if Canada has millions of dollars to send planes to Libya, can't they use some of that money to feed the hungry people that we have in Canada? Many people go home and not having anything to eat that night, the next night and/or the whole week! Although Libya is in danger as we...

Iran presents a real threat to the welfare of the United states and the world

Chuckles
clsmooth

I believe Iran presents a true threat to the welfare of the united states and in fact the world. The reasons i present to support this statement are: 1. Nuclear Capability 2. Terrorist Funds 3. Religion 1. While there was a report that said Iran stopped pursuing nuclear weapons in 2003, there are other reports (notice it's plural) from both the US and Israel and more, that estimate Iran will have the capability to produce Nuclear Weapons (NWs) ranging from as early as 2009 to almost 2020....

There should be a debate section for philosophy and "other" topics.

longjonsilver
cjet79

Philosophy: Debate is an integral portion of philosophy and I would love to have debates on ethics, political philosophy, free will, etc. but there is not a section. "Other": Because it would be conceded and closed-minded to think that you can create a list of all possible debate categories. After all. I couldn't even find a legitimate category to put this topic....
