Liberals accusing Republicans of "fear-mongering" is getting annoying.

ReaganConservative
Danielle

Let me just begin this article with a disclaimer and a definition. First of all, in this piece, I will not spiral down into anti-woman rhetoric, I will not denounce abortion, I will not disparage gays and, regretfully, my subject matter will not lampoon the comical ineffectiveness of affirmative action. So do not call me a sexist, homophobic, fundamentalist bigot. In addition, let me define a term for you: neocon (short for neoconservative). This label refers to a hawkish philosophy with a pench...

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...

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...

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....

Funnier Jokes Wins.

Jamcke
LakevilleNorthJT

This debate is basically a continuation of a debate that my opponent started with another member. I liked it so much I though I'd challenge him to another. Please take into consideration that my opponent has already used several jokes, so he should be granted a handicap for voting purposes if he choses to except. Also, this debate is strictly for fun, and none of its content should be construed as being intentionally offensive to anyone. As for my first joke: Q: What does Snoop...

Atheism is a belief

PublicForumG-d
Spiral

I read your debate on "whether or not atheism exists". I thought it was a horrible blow out, in your favor. :) That said, I disagree with your position of atheism as not a faith. Atheism may not be an organized religion, but it is definately a faith. Atheism is "1) the doctrine or belief that there is no God 2) a lack of belief in the existence of God or gods " note: **Belief** that there is no God. My sole contention rests on the fact that it is impossible to prove a ne...
