Jonah was devoured, digested, and died in the belly of a great fish.

I'm arguing that Jonah was devoured, digested, and died in the belly of a great fish. Nobody could survive inside a great fish for 3 days and 3 nights. [0] The jaw produces the most pressure of all muscles in humans. [1]"Pressure is different from force — pressure takes into account the area over which a force is exerted. The muscle that takes the prize for delivering the greatest amount of pressure is the masseter, or the jaw muscle, according to the book "Clini...

Veganism is a religion.

AjNicholas

I don't understand how veganism can possibly be seen as a religion. I get veganism is a religion argument a lot when talking about vegan issues. In fact, whenever I mention vegan concepts Christians around me shift uncomfortably. Communicating to me non-verbally they tolerate it but warning me not to idolize it. This makes no sense to me. How can you idolize veganism? It is not even physical. Its not like its a different God or anything. There is no chanting nor worshiping. Neverthele...

Jesus Christ loves gays equally as much as straights.

Stupidape
Demonoid

This is strictly from a Christian point of view. I hear slogans otherwise. I want to clarify what I think is correct. Jesus Christ loves gays as much as straight people. Here's why, there is a vast difference between sexual orientation and sinful deeds. Sexual orientation is a static state, like being male, Caucasian, and naturally red hair. You don't really have much control if any over these characteristics. Actions on the other hand you do. Sin, is a breach of God's divine law. Simpl...

I will contend that none of the three most practiced religions Gods exist. The three are Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism. My opponent will contend that one or more of these religions' Gods exist. Victory for Pro if can Pro can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that none of these Gods exist. Automatic victory for Con if Pro doesn't win. Can be no stalemate.

Are video games overpriced?

HungryBoot
DebatyDebateMaster

Video games are fun, and I do play them myself, but when I see my cash going away, most of the time 59.99 USD, for a disk with software on it, I realize that, dang, I am paying a lot for this. I know not all video games have that 59.99 price tag, but the majority of them do. Gear nuke says,"The average gamer in the US spends around $80 on video games per year, this can include packaged content in the form of console or PC games and Digital content in the form of full game purchases, DLC and...

Legalize dog fighting in USA.

Stupidape
stschiffman

We should legalize dog fighting in the USA. I think we should legalize dog fighting to discourage the black market. Despite being illegal, dog fighting is a booming business. [0] Just as we have lost the war on drugs and prohibition we have lost the war on dog fighting. I care for animals and I think this is the best way to increase their quality of life. By legalizing dog fighting we can have guidelines on what is going too far and what is tolerable. We could use the proceeds t...

Black Lives Matter Movement

Spacebarman97

Black Lives Matter!!! Really? That's your movement's name? I would rename your slogan to Black Lives ALSO Matter. Did you see that word, ALSO? Yes, I know, you might laugh at my argument that ALL LIVES MATTER . Don't get me wrong, you're movement as a whole is perfectly fine and respectable, but the people who protest it are a WHOLE OTHER STORY. Yes, of course, racism totally exists, but it doesn't only effect the lives of black people, it effect's ALL of us. One of you're biggest argument's is...

NYC is better then Westchester county

StevenCarmonaRacing
lannan13

New York city is obviously better then Westchester. New York has a diverse population, a well known city and is exclusive to rich and poor. Westchester is more private because only rich people live there. There's no popular attraction. They won't even let you park on any streets, even in "major" sites unless you are living in Westchester. New York city has worldwide attractions, while Westchester isn't even known in Stanford, Connecticut! (Stanford borders Westchester)...
