Should fossil hunting remain legal?

MeargleSchmeargle
Tehkid

This debate is going to be based around whether or not fossil hunting should remain legal. Whoever accepts this debate will be arguing in favor of making fossil hunting illegal. First, I shall clarify some key terms: Fossil: the remains or impression of a prehistoric organism preserved in petrified form or as a mold or cast in rock. Fossil hunting: the collection of fossils for hobby or profit (for debate purposes, scientific collecting is not included). And now, I shall clarify some rule...

Is Gay Marriage Okay?

TheLogic
SJM

Living in the Bible Belt, it seems as if the topic of homosexuality comes up often. I myself am an agnostic pagan, but I was raised in a Christian home and have gone to church many times so I can argue from a Christian standpoint as well. In my opinion, love is not spething to be discouraged or oppressed. Anybody care to explain otherwise?...

There is racial bias in the US Law Enforcement System.

FrankyG170
Murdoc

In the past decade the US Justice System has come under much scrutiny for bias against minority groups within the nation. Much of the rhetoric established in this discussion has been politically charged and is therefore heavily biased to one point of view. This debate is an attempt to debate without any influence of bias from said sources in order to arrive at a closer understanding to what is causing the current events in the Justice System. That is to say, we are hoping to find if there truly...

Should Prisoners be allowed to vote?

Oreo1088
Joey888

I believe that prisoners should get the chance to vote if they please. People think they should not get the right to vote because they broke the law or did something terrible. Some of them may have been committed for a crime that they didn't do or just a minor crime. A certain person if they get into office may or may not help improve prisons. That's a lot of votes that could possibly be casted if they allowed them. It would count towards what ever state that they were imprisoned in. They are pe...

America must repent

MJC4KIDS

The bible and history show that God will destroy the sinful nations that forget him. Psalm 9:17 says, "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." Every nation will be judged in its proper time and America"s time has come. And since God has promised to warn you before it happens-- this is your warning! There is a time for everything and the time to repent is now before it is too late. The bible has many examples of people trying to repent after judgment and troubl...

The Earth can be both spherical in shape and disc in shape.

Stupidape
Husername

As I see it if you belief in an all powerful God, God can do anything God wants. The rules of nature, physics, and geometry don't apply to God. Just as via religion young earth creationism and evolution are compatible, so is the Earth being flat and round simultaneously. Think about it God doesn't make any sense to us, because God is so much more complex than us. Religion is not supposed to make sense. Religion is irrational. We are force fed a bunch of ideas, until we just give up and acce...

Extraterrestials have visited Earth

McMount
CharlesGrey

The debate which has haunted the halls of debate.org as well as countless other forums. I will argue for the fact that extraterrestials have visited Earth. Con's goal is to prove me wrong. For the sake of the debate I need to clarify some things: - This argument is about extraterrestials visiting Earth in the past and/or present. It's not about the existence of extraterrestials. - I, as Pro, carry Burden of Proof. Round 1 is for acceptance. Good luck to anyone who might take up the chall...
