America is the Land of the Free

Skeptic111
Raisor

With so many people getting punished publicly for speaking their true feelings- speaking their minds- we have become a culture where people only use "code words"-- and we really don't say things plainly or literally anymore. Because if we do- openly- it will be called racist, sexist, homophobic, or ignorant. The truth is that people are very afraid of the Tyranny of the Politically Correct. And this has led to a kind of "personal censorship" where people only can speak on certain subjects, and i...

A.I. of sufficient intelligence deserves Personhood

blackkid
happybook

First round is acceptance. Basis & Definitions: We will presume that the entity's nature itself does not matter. The question is essentially whether a being that functions as a human would fully entitled to emotions, mental capabilities, and intelligence should be considered a "Person". The standard of machinery still is present so the object still requires initial input unlike biological systems but beyond that input can assess within it's parameters which is assumed to be equivalent to a hu...

The Holocaust was a hoax

MasterDebatersUnion
ClitCommander

In many European countries Holocaust denial is punishable with jail time and as a result more skeptics have appeared. I will take the position that the Holocaust was a hoax fabricated to justify the creation of Israel and the Jewish deaths during WWII are severely over exaggerated....

9/11: All conspiracy theories about 9/11 are painfully false.

Zdawg
Ozzyhead

If anyone out there believes an alternate reality of the events of 9/11 and thinks they can prove it, I challenge you. If you believe the US government was behind it, it was a controlled demolition, there were no planes, it was a space beam, Larry Silverstein did it, or it was done so we could go to war in the middle east, or any other crazy theory, please prove it....

Is same sex marriage wrong? Who is it hurting?

This_One_Chick
DrZoidberg

So, I want to see how everyone else feels about same sex marriage. I'm fine with it. I mean who are we to decide if two human beings should or shouldn't be married? Who are we to judge? If god loves all his children why is he giving these people trouble? If god created everyone, why would he say homosexuality is wrong? Who does this hurt? Who are we to deny humans their basic rights to happiness?...

Alcohol

moeez_malik
zmikecuber

Alcohol should be banned because it effects our lives and it can cause people to die. It intoxicates our bodies, and also it has a negative effect on the human soul. Alcohol has not effected my family or loved ones but it effects many others threw the world. I believe congress must take part of this immediately, and ban alcohol....
