George Bush: Good Candidate...Bad Timing

JTSmith
Danielle

George Bush... Not a day goes by when someone does not refer to him as the worst president in American History. Seriously??? Some people need to learn their history. How about Ulysses S. Grant, whose administration was the author of the greatest government scandals in US History. Then theres John Adams, who stiffened our economy and passed laws that made it illegal to talk badly about government leaders. When John Quincy Adams left office our country was in a serious recession and EVERYBODY...

Christianity is a force for good in the world.

Freeman
InquireTruth

On balance, Christianity has done far more harm than good in the modern world. Its human rights record is disgraceful and the negative impacts of its dogmas have reverberated throughout history and even into the present day. As though this wasn't bad enough it also impoverishes the human condition by distracting people from their real happiness with illusory preachments of an afterlife. And despite the good intentions of many decent people it is still one of the prime sources of a considerable a...

The paradox of the stone successfully disproves the Christian God.

mongeese
KidateK

Full resolution: Because of the scenario introduced by the paradox of the stone, the God discussed in the Christian Bible (Yahweh) absolutely cannot exist in reality. The paradox of the stone is outlined here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omnipotence_paradox My opponent will explain why this paradox disproves the existence of the Christian God. Naturally, PRO will have the burden of proof. Good luck to my opponent....

The Democrats will win the presidency in 2008.

Sivispacem08
TheLibertarian

In the world currently around us, the GOP is looked on with a certain degree of discuss by the majority of America. even the most right-winged supporters agree that now is the time for reform. 2008 will be this time. The American public sent a message with the last Congressional elections by turning a Republican dominated Congress into a Democratic one. The same will occur in the 2008 election. Another reason the Republicans will never win the 2008 election is due to the fact that they have no...

Thanks to my opponent for requesting this debate. If anyone doesn't know how this works, it is quite simple. Each round, each debater posts one joke. Whoever has funnier jokes wins.

They usually run at the first sign of emotion. ..Bike helmets. They're good in emergencies but usually just look silly. ..Government bonds....

George Bush is a good president

policydebategod
Phil

George Bush has destroyed our nation. 1. He implimented No Child Left Behind, overcrowding our good schools and still leaving our bad schools to be bad. 2. He created the Iraq War for the purpose of finding weapons of mass destruction, stopping terrorism, and promoting democracy. They vote, they have no WMDs, and terrorism will NEVER be stopped, and Iraq has nothing to do with it. 3. He lowered out economy significantly, lower than most African nations. 4. He raised gas prices, making tr...

Gay Marriage

dbaytor
mrpresident

As far as controvercial topics go, Gay marriage is one of the biggest ones, but it doesnt have to be. Why is gay marriage such a controvercial topic? Closed minded self-richeous people who are too stuck in their ways, they are the reason its such a controvercial topic. I'm not saying that everyone has to think that being a homosexual is right, or that everyone should be, but for goodness sake, why stop two people from having the right to marry eachother? "You cant get married because youre gay"....

If a Single God Exists and Is Responsible For Creating Our World, This God Is a Jerk

schoolglutton
midgetjoe

~~~ My Main Argument ~~~ Claim: If a Single God Exists and Is Responsible For Creating Our World, This God Is a Jerk God is defined here as an infallible, all knowing, and all powerful being responsible for the creation of all that is. Somehow this God has managed to always exist and predate all that has ever been. Jerk is defined here as a being whose behavior is hurtful, self-centered, or particularly abrasive. My evidence is that God deposited some pretty nasty genetic diseases and...
