Is School Mandatory?

Victori
MolecularBird06

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...

Logic Game

Chrysippus
Charlie_Danger

Random logic game Overview: Each player posts four arguments, on any (clean) topic he chooses, and on as many (clean) topics as he chooses; they can be syllogisms, paragraphs, sentences, or symbols; they can be written, in a video linked (with the intended argument pointed out in the post), in a picture or graph linked, or in a news article linked, as long as it does not require a subscription to read the article. At least one of the arguments each round needs to be subtly fallacious. This...

Whoever accepts to take this argument will be talking about how we are getting gas from the middle instead of Canada. Which to me makes absolutely no sense. Thank you, -Tyler...

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

nyyfan
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...

I will be attempting to show that the statement, "Found in the cirriculum of the first US Public Schools, 1647... "...one chief project of that old deluder, Satan, to keep men from the knowledge of the Scriptures."", contained in medic0506's forum signature is factually incorrect. As he has refused to admit to this in the forums. Well either he can refuse this debate, admiting that he keeps that there knowing it is not the truth, or he can debate me on it. Well medic? I'v been on this site f...

Same-Sex marriage.

sahaam
Duncan

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...
