Should we lower the drinking age to 18?

RepublitariansUnite

As young adults in the United States we are allowed to fight/die in wars, purchase guns, vote, pay taxes, work, go to college, and have many more rights that equal older adults. Yet we are not allowed to drink alcohol. Many people who appose alcohol quickly point at the DUI stats from current college/young adults age groups. But what these people don't know is that other countries like Germany have successfully bypassed these tragedies by teaching their kids what alcohol can do. They're training...

Should the Bible be used in arguments involving political issues such as gay marriage?

I believe that the Bible should not be used in arguments involving political issues such as gay marriage or the transgender rights movement. The book is a religious icon; politics should be kept separate from religious arguments, as stated by Thomas Jefferson himself when he proposed the "separation of church and state".

Evolution is more credible than Creationism

Midnight1131
DDDDaniel

Evolution is fact. Fact in science, as described by paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould, is data, not absolute certainty but "confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent," One means of evolution is *natural selection*. Organisms with favourable traits are more likely to reproduce. An example of this are day flying moths, which at first were had light coloured skin, and there were a few dark skinned moths. At first the light skinned moths had a better chanc...

Dogs are better pets than cats.

LordKavstar
Shrek_sDrecKid

As a person who has both a cat and a dog, I believe that dogs make better pets than cats. I am open to all arguments, be them for vastly different situations, e.g Cats are better for old people than dogs. No rules apart from the usual, no racism or homophobia or anything like that (not sure how you could be racist when talking about dogs or cats!). I expect that this debate has been used a lot on Debate.org but I thought I might give it a try! This is just for fun, please don't take this too...

People don't have to go to church to have a strong relationship with god

I'm truly convinced that you do not have to go to church in order to have a strong relationship with God and Jesus Christ. A lot of people actually have really busy lives and almost never get a break, not everyone can make it to church. Is God really going to punish someone for not going to church? Probably not. God is very loving and understanding and always has open arms to anyone no matter how bad the person might be. Jesus died on the cross for our sins so we could be forgiven. It actually b...

Gay marriage is sinful.

lannan13

I would like to thank my friend lannan13 for accepting this debate, and for suggesting the topic of this debate. He is a skilled debater, so I look forward to the challenge. We will be debating the resolution, "Gay marriage is sinful." For the sake of this debate, we have agreed on the definition of "sinful". Sinful: Anything that goes against God's will. We've also have agreed that for the purposes of this debate, we shall consider the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant word of God....
