dairygirl4u2c
bp_1138

if we would allow partial birth abortion, by extension, we should also allow killing the baby during an accidental birth that occurs during an attempted abortion. i would like a rhetorical debate. i am actually against this. but, i want someone who is for partial birth abortion etc but say they are against this to debate me. i am aware that partial birth is banned by federal law now... but it's a hypothetical debate. (we could also consider pregnancies that are beginning to be delievered, a...

+++++++ "general consensus among scientists as published in the Wall Street Journal in 1994 titled "Mainstream Science on Intelligence" shows a consensus among scientists that average IQ are as followed in America. Blacks 85. Whites 100. East Asians 106. Further studies done and published in science journals show IQ to be overwhelmingly genetic. Minnesota Twins Study by Dr. Thomas Bouchard, the most famous twin study done, shows that identical twins separated at birth are significantly more sim...

High-speed rail should receive federal government subsidy in-place of current subsidies on highways

ConservativePolitico

My belief is that federal government subsidies on high-speed rail would benefit the United States greater than the continual subsidy of the current highway system. The first round is acceptance, the second is stating your argument, third round attempt to dispute claims made by the opponent in second round. I lowered the max number of characters to keep arguments concise. I look forward to a good debate, good luck....

Man Can't Know Theistic Truths

AnthraSight
Dubloon

My first debate will be a quick one since it's more of a question. My only argument is this, 1) If God is all knowing, then only he can know of himself 2) Mankind are not all knowing 3) Therefore, Man can't know theistic truths Support for 1: In order to know anything about a being which knows all, we must be within that very same epistemic position, but if no other being shares such a position with God, then ultimately God is unknowable. Support for 2: Humans stand in very l...

Black women in America don't try to look white. American white women try to look black.

aliasam1337
FieryPassion

Con has to prove that black women cosmetically do try to look white women. Con also has to prove that white women cosmetically DON'T try to look like black women. Cosmetically meaning physically. This isn't a debate on how anyone acts, only on how they look. Both Pro and Con are not implying that all black women or all white women act the same way. This should be an interesting and possibly humorous debate. Good luck to the Con. First round is acceptance, second is argument, third is rebuttal...

Rules: 1: The first round is for acceptance. 2: Pro has the BOP, and has to bring accusations and proof that con is a troll. 3: Con has to counter pro's arguments, but beyond that has no BOP. 4: If pro wins, accusations should be brought to the president that con is a troll, and all voters must tell the president con is a troll. 5: If pro does not prove con is a troll, pro should automatically lose. 6: Con is innocent until proven guilty....
