gay marriage

headphonegut
johngriswald

I would appreciate if you accepted this debate Resolution homosexuals should be able to marry contention 1- not only is not allowing gays a violation of the so proposed ideology of america being equal but it is also preposterous on the idea that if homosexuals want to be miserable in a marriage then let them "we the people of the united states are endowed with three unalienable rights the right to liberty, freedom, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS" does this not imply or state that men can pur...

Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.

Firstly I would like to thank my opponent for excepting this debate, and thank the genius that came up with this quote, Albert Einstein. "Your common sense is your natural ability to make good judgments and to behave in a practical and sensible way." Google dictionary (1) Prejudice-Having an opinion on some one or something before seeing it. Working with my definitions, which other than minor semantic corrections are to be used throughout the debate. Looking at the definition of common...

Abortion

Pat
swaqqasolves

As said in the title, this debate is about abortion. I am con, so will argue against. The challenge is open to whomever takes it. This is my point of view: Abortion is an act of murder, wherein a human being is removed from the uterus of the mother, resulting in the death of this baby. Abortion is a violation of human rights. It violates the unborn baby's basic right to live, and should be illegal, except in unusual circumstances. This would include, but not be limited to, rape, moth...

to be pupil better rather than student

Bexultan
ani_mess

Today all people know that after schools pupils should enrol on a course of university, there is a doubt that some of the children want to stay in schools. So there is a question what is better to be pupil or student? From my point of view, to be pupil better rather than student. You know that when we became student we have a lot of problems, but these problems we should solve by ourselves. And we have a big responsibility on everything. And it makes our life difficult. In contrast to be pupil m...

Casual sex is irresponsible because it has great potential to cause suffering

maibad
Deathbeforedishonour

These arguments are presented in ascending order of the instigator's belief in their philosophical importance. There is ALWAYS a risk that having sex will create life, which you will then have to either raise or terminate. To create a human life without being ready to provide for its happiness is irresponsible because it causes human suffering to that created child, and may even create suffering to the zygote if it is terminated (please note with respect the "may". We don't know whether or no...

Should we judge people before we get to know them?

Mister_Man
mubaracus

This is a simple case of "don't judge a book by it's cover," however, the cover says a lot about the contents and the premise of the book. I will be assuming the Pro position obviously. We will take into consideration anything we see about a person's physical appearance, including their clothing, car, etc. Anything they're wearing or own the first time you see them without engaging in a converastion. No rules - swear all you want, etc, but I'd like you to be serious - no trolls, please....

Cannabis should be legalised across the globe.

Tommy.leadbetter
meghapaulson

Cannabis should be legalised across the globe. I am not saying it is harmless, I am saying that a government who bans it's citizens from using it has become over controlling. This debate is about freedom and democracy, more than the health risks of cannabis. Also, this debate is set in the context of the current world affairs. One must accept that they think alcohol, coke, cigarettes e.t.c should all be illegal, if they think cannabis should be illegal as well, based on its health risks....

homosexual should not be allowed to adopt or raise any child!

janus777
Fagot

I am in the believe that it should be illegal for all gay couples to adopt or raising any child. I have known a gay couples who have adopted there "own" child, and I saw have it ruined there kid. When he started going to school people started bulling him because of his gay parents, and he"s been going though a hard time ever since. He does not have many friends and generally he is just having a hard time being social. But I can see why, one time one of the boys from his class where holding a bir...

In times of utter despair, the only thing a person can hold onto is the idea of hope.

JMac3.1415926

A person does not only have to hold onto hope to get out of their situation. Hope can be the key to survival, but just hoping won't do anything. Maybe a little more effort into getting out of despair will work, but clinging on hope will help less....
