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....

The United Nations should intervene militarily in Syria

Invictus144

Thank you to whoever accepts this debate, as it is my first, and I wish you good luck. I believe that the United Nations (UN) should intervene militarily in Syria for various reasons. Primarily in that regardless of the knowledge that Assad has agreed to and I believe completed the handover of chemical weapons. Assad has used these chemical weapons, which is a breach of "Chemical Weapons Convention" (CWC) which came into force in 1997. Worse than this, Assad used these chemical weapons on civ...

Resolved: The Middle East should not be allowed access to the internet

imabench
bossyburrito

This debate is that the Middle East should not be allowed to have access to the internet because every time the people in the Middle East find something offensive on the internet, they lose their mother f*cking minds and start blowing sh*t up. In the past week alone dozens of Americans have been killed and at least a half dozen embassies across the Middle East have been attacked. And what caused all of this outrage? A MOVIE ON THE INTERNET THAT THEY FIND OFFENSIVE. How the bloody f*ck can we...

9/11 was not an inside job.

darryshan
Free_Th1nker

The evidence for 9/11 being an inside job is factually deceiving, and requires many assumptions. For example, claims that the buildings fell at freefall speeds ignore the obvious debris that fell faster than the collapse, seen in this image: http://i.imgur.com/ny6BLbn.png Also, claims that WTC 7 was destroyed in a controlled demolition do not take into account any of the information from the NIST report which explored WHY the buildings fell. The investigation showed that the load bearing s...

Newspapers are Outdated

deepak7g
David.McIntosh

It is always said that what is old is gold. So I would like to start my debate by saying that No Newspapers are not outdated as there are many advantages of using newspapers. And if a person is not using a newspapers to update himself then he/she will be using any device to do so, such as television, internet, smartphone, etc.But I believe that newspapers are the best option to get yourself updated and the reasons are:-1)IN TERMS OF COST <...
