People are too dependent on technology.

Technology is a great thing which has led mankind from hunter gatherers roaming from place to place into the dominant species of the planet. However as technology has advanced we as a society in general have lost the need for basic survival skills and knowledge. How often is that when people get lost or stranded for any considerable length of time that they perish? Granted today as a result of technology people aren't often lost or stranded for long but when they are they more often than not lac...

"Is it OK to be naked in front of your kids?"

Jesusman
Lovewhatmatters

There is an incessant debate whether it is ok for kids to see their parents naked. While parents who walk naked in front of their kids do that as a show of self-acceptance and a show of their rights to be naked, others see it as scaring the kids for life and inappropriate. I will use psychology, the Bible and logic to make my case. Anyone to bring a contrary view?...

Does God Exist?

Vishva
Katerina-Vinther

If God so desired, He could simply appear and prove to the whole world that He exists. But if He did that, there would be no need for faith. "Then Jesus told him, 'Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed'" (John 20:29). This quote from the Bible touches on the fact that faith is vital in believing that God exists. Scientific evidence also proves that there must be some higher power that controls everything. Take the example of the E...

should we use obama care?

kittyy
samanthafalk

we should When Obama was pitching Obamacare, he realized people would be concerned about losing their current insurance and paying higher prices. If the American public believed this, Obamacare would be dead on arrival. So, he repeatedly insisted that this would NOT be the case. Here are some quotes from President Obama: If you"re one of the more than 250 million Americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. This law will only make it more secure and mor...

Super Smash Brothers Melee is a better title than Super Smash Brothers Brawl

Lulzy
Shrek_sDrecKid

For this argument, I will be taking the side of the Pro, meaning that I agree with the fact that Melee is sufficiently better than Brawl. To prove this, I, as the Pro side debater, will use terms such as teching and l-cancelling, to say the least. Each one will be followed by a brief explanation of the term, number of characters permitting. Let's begin. I say that Melee is a significantly better game than it's predecessor, Brawl, due in part to the fact that Melee is a faster paced game, and...

Should women carry handguns?

In4it
Toxifrost

Women should stop the chances that they will become the victim of a violent crime, and start carrying handguns to protect themselves. Why should a woman have to endure a rape or worse die at the hands of the growing number of violent offenders, just waiting for her around nearly every corner. Another side to this is that one sane person could save countless lives, in the right situation....
