Background:This debate originated from this thread on Edward Snowden:http://www.debate.org/forums/politics/topic/32280/My esteemed opponent saw little to no reason to be agitated by the NSA surveillance program PRISM.

Same-Sex marriage.

Hi my name is Sahaam. On the 19th of August same-sex marriage will be legalised officially in New Zealand. I don't agree on this. Being a Seventh Day Adventist Christian, I know that same-sex marriage is NOT right. My 1st point is that if we legalise same-sex marriage then we might as well legalise other laws. For example if I wanted to marry an animal, would you think im crazy? Its equal rights.If you can marry your own sex then why not marry a cat or a dog or a monkey, and so on. Marrying a...

Is School Mandatory?

Victori

Some child development experts are concerned that schools today aren't teaching kids the skills they need to succeed. A culture of testing, they say, is inhibiting the development of "life skills". Curricular content aside, what do you think you are really learning in school? Are you developing skills that will carry you through life? You don't need to go to school to be successful. As a matter of fact, the majority of the world's millionaires didn't attend college. How many Lady Gaga's and Li...

SPENCERJOYAGE14

if you look at my percentile ranking, im 99+% ranked. it's so high, that you can count numberically, that i'm just under 100th place in the ranking. in a realm of thousands upon thousands, that is not bad at all. if you look at my ELO and win ratio, you might conclude that perhaps i aint so great. i could get into reasons why those are so low, given my laid back nature, but i'm mainly interested in focusing on the stats. also, to be honest, i'm looking for someone with knowledge of h...

Without mathematical formulas, 0.999.... Does NOT Equal 1

9spaceking
GaryBacon

I believe without mathematical arguments, you cannot prove 0.9999.... equals one. In fact I will disprove this famous mathematical fact using arguments that aren't mathematical. RULES: round one acceptance only you can use any kind of argument (even troll!) but you cannot use any mathematical arguments breakage of any rules results in full 7-point forfeit. This debate is impossible to accept because I have school work to do. I will make this available in summer....

God's wrath appears in response to defiance against Him.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
JohnMaynardKeynes

Atheism and agnosticism is defiance against God. God's wrath remains on those who are defiant against God.In this debate I will preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and God's warnings of fiery destruction in eternal hell fire for all who insist of defying God. God loves you and He wants you to know His love and not experiecne His wrath....
