Is gay marriage wrong?

MrSykoCat
The_Scapegoat_bleats

No, it isn't. I'm not gay myself (or even religious) but to deny the right to have a gay marriage is to deny the right to persue happiness, which is protected by the Constitution of the United States of America....

It is stupid to compare politicla correctness to the rules of a religion

RoyLatham
imabench

My opponent claims it is stupid to compare the rules of political correctness to the rules of religion. He quoted my claim in his list of the top ten most stupid things said on DDO. [1. http://www.debate.org/forums/miscellaneous/topic/35982/1/] This debate provides him with an opportunity to argue for his proposition that the comparison is "stupid." Pro gave no unusual context for his claim, so the primary definition of "stupid" applies: not intelligent : havin...

Corporal punishment in the families!!!

Spank yes, abuse no Proper discipline is in no way abuse, and can be essential in properly raising a child. How many times have you been in a store and seen the child of someone who believes in modern parenting (no spanking, timeouts, etc) talking back to their parent, ignoring everything they say, and in general just being a spoiled little brat?

Until the last century, lepers in China were burned alive to prevent the spread of leprosy which, at that time, was incurable. Similarly last century, when there was an outbreak of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or "mad cow disease" as it is more commonly known, beef cattle were burned in their millions, whether they were infected or not. Happily, vaccines for mad cow disease have now been developed and a cure for leprosy has also been found but, sadly, an even more virulent and...

Nonverbal clues as evidence in a case

GrannoHD
Speakerfrthedead

Do you think it should be possible to use nonverbal behavior as evidence in a case to convict a person guilty or innocent? Have you seen the tv-show lie to me? its kinda like that I'm talking about. If a person shows a lot of nonverbal clues which, if you put them all together would fit a guilty person, could that be used as evidence? Many investigators who use the polygraph also look at nonverbal signs, if you combine them it can turn out to be a really power full tool to detect who i...

Humanity is a pathetic species. We must reform our society.

WilliamsP
Mikal

The first round is only for accepting the debate and stating your opinion. My opinion is the following; "Humanity is a pathetic species. If aliens saw us, they would likely laugh at us, stare at us, or shed a tear due to the failures of the human race. We must reform our society and we must change our ways."...
