A firearm is the most effective personal defense weapon.

ChickenBakuba

A firearm, specifically a handgun, is the best defense for the average adult against one or multiple aggressors. It is compact, lightweight, lethal, and the mere visual display is more than enough to end most emergency situations....

Should kids be allowed to watch mature shows

Kids should be allowed because they are their own being and they should decide what they want for themselves; sure there can be a little guiding from the parents but they will have an idea about stuff when other kids will be left in the dark....

Single Sex schools are better than Co-Ed

LaylaM

Hello my name is Layla, today I will be on the pro side of this debate of single sex schools are better than co-ed schools. So I for what the moot point states. To clarify what this means: A single sex school is a school with only boys or only girls. A co-ed school is a school with boys and girls. Today I will talk about 5 points. My first point is that having a single sex school will create equality in P.E as there will only be one gender competing against each other. This could mean t...

Can God create a rock so big he can't lift it, or not create the rock? either, not @ same time

dairygirl4u2c
Alpha3141

Can an Omnipotent God create a rock he cannot lift? it is said that If one answers yes to the question, then God is therefore not omnipotent because he cannot lift the rock, but if one answers no to the question, God is no longer omnipotent because he cannot create the rock. my position is that he can do one or the other, at different times, but he can't do both at the same time. and, that he can't do both at the same time doesn't disprove God as omnipotent. the solution is to say that God...

required threshhold of faith required for Christians to be saved is not clear

dairygirl4u2c
Jake33ss

the requirements are either too vague, or too listy/dogmatic. the bible says if you confess with your mouth jesus is lord, and beleive in your heart that he was raised from the dead you will be saved. it also say if you believe in the lord you will be saved. it also has all kinds of other statements. i'm sure if you do these, that is sufficient. but what about various other scenarios, like the content of 'sinner's prayers' that dont include those things? what or where exactly is the thres...

Should Asylum Seekers be Welcomed?

xoxtalking.cute
CannedBread

Yes. Asylum seekers should certainly be welcomed in countries. What are asylum seekers? They are poor, hopeful, and unfortunate though innocent, people. For example, during wars, many asylum seekers seek refugee in different countries, because they want to live a better life. Happily, with their family. They have done nothing wrong to start a war in their country, but it just happens to be that way. A war begins before they know it. Did they ask for a war? NO! Of course not. They just wanted...

kasmic
Blade-of-Truth

R: The XXII amendment of the U.S. Constitution should be repealed. Text of XXII Amendment https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twenty-second_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution#Text For clarity there is a difference between term limits, which limit the number of terms a person may serve as president and term lengths which are 4 years. This debate is about term limits... not term lengths. Rematch!!!! Blade of truth and I re-doing this debate. http://www.debate.org/debates/The-XXII-...
