The Smoking ban.

ClashnBoom
Arcanas

I think that the smoking ban is good. Three important things to know 1.We'll mainly be debating tobacco. 2.I suck at grammar and spelling. 3. I don't like arguments like they should choose there shouldn't be a ban. Rules: 1. No arguments without source. 2. No biases 3. No foul words R1 Acceptance and definitions R2 Arguments R2 More arguments and rebuttals R3 More rebuttals R4 Constructive criticism rebuttals and closing statements. Keep your arguments simple and organiz...

Cats an immoral choice of pet

LoveAndDebate
Kevin_Cardinale

Noob debate, more for practice but I'd appreciate a challenge with feedback. Cats eat the local wildlife which was there first, also they just don't care about you, sorry, but they're just evil. Ever heard of guide cat? (this is just a practice debate, I'm not truly a cat hater though I think there are too many and they do have a bad effect on nature)...

On balance, economic globalization benefits worldwide poverty reduction

evanallred123

i stand in strong negation of the statement, resolved: "On balance, economic globalization benefits worldwide poverty reduction". In order to better understand the information that the Con side wishes to present today, it is necessary to understand some terms. Blacks Law ( the dictionary that the United States Supreme Court uses) defines poverty as A term used to denote a condition in which people are unable to meet their basic necessities, due to lack of money or skill. The United Nations defin...

Selective breeding of dogs (pedigrees) is eugenics by another name

Eugenics is a dirty word which most sane, morally upright people have long dispensed with. No one is better or worse than anyone else and thankfully, ideas of 'blood purity' and superficial distinctions that once rendered one race superior to another have long been void of support. Yet, we still continue to breed pedigree dogs and will very often shun crossbreeds for being 'lesser' dogs. We breed for function over form, simply to maintain breed purity, and ignore all the problems (health and oth...

In order to better understand the information that the Con side wishes to present today, it is necessary to understand some terms. The United Nations defines "economic globalization" as: " the increasing interdependence of world economies as a result of the growing scale of cross-border trade of commodities and services, flow of international capital and wide and rapi...

The Almighty God exists

letyoureyesbeopened
Behold

Contrary to what atheists, agnostics, and even many Christians believe, God does indeed use science to accomplish His will. Abiogenesis is very likely to have inititated life, but it does not disprove God, and neither does evolution. Why would a God create a universe, with all its spot-on and orderly laws of science/physics, just to break those laws? He doesn't. He uses those laws to execute His will on earth, whether that be to create life, make a grand, beautiful and perfect environment suitab...

The USSR was the most valuable Ally in WWII

bartset

Hello, I'm Billy. If you're a British or French person, you may have heard this from an American: "We saved your butt in WWII." As an American, it may sound irony, but I disagree. Many Americans don't realize how powerful the Soviet military was. Before I get into that, I'll list the Allies and the Axis states. Allies (combatants): Soviet Union, United States, United Kingdom, China, Poland, France, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Norway, Denmark, Yugoslavia, Greece, Luxembourg, Netherla...

It Should be Illegal to Smoke on Public Property in the United States

Death23

For the purpose of the debate laws exist to: "protect our general safety, and ensure our rights as citizens against abuses by other people, by organizations, and by the government itself." (1) First round is acceptance only. Con cannot make any new arguments in the final round, as Pro has no chance to rebut them. 1-http://judiciallearningcenter.org/law-and-the-rule-of-law/...

Con Chooses

Shadow_Drew13
WillYouMarryMe

Just going to note, this is my first argument over the web. I will stand as pro. Con can choose the topic. Rules: It cannot be a topic that is impossible to argue. No trolls. That's not gonna fly here. Cannot be anything that is gender biased, since arguments like that never seem to end. You have 8000 characters to make your argument. There are 4 rounds. (Please don't take offense to this, it's my catchphrase...) May the best douchebag win....
