Debate.org is too American oriented

Farooq
SperoAmicus

When I first signed up for debate.org, I was given the choice of country for which I was from, not just which US State (I am not American). It is also on the world-wide web and by no means has it ever stated on the website that this is "Americandebates.com" or "arguments relating the US issues". Yet when one goes to make a public profile and checks at the issues there are several that are just regional things relating the America like the proposed Border Fence, Dubya, the missle shield, etc. The...

Choose one of them Kleptin!

TheSkeptic
Kleptin

If my memory serves me correct, I've only debated Kleptin once before. For some strange reason, after reading several of his debates on evolution I felt an urge to challenge him to a debate. Who knows, maybe it's just a habit of mine to want to debate people, or perhaps it's a divine altruistic behavior I'm exhibiting to give him a break from the intellectual...challenge... of debating creationists over and over :P. I will present three debate topics and allow my opponent to have the opportun...

SOMEONE SHOULD SELL CARBONATED GRAVY

sweatycreases2
Yraelz

I THINK SOMEONE SHOULD SELL CARBONATED GRAVY. THEY COULD PROBABLY SELL ALOT OF IT IN THE SOUTH OR AT NASCAR EVENTS. HELL, I WAS SIXTEEN YEARS OLD BEFORE I KNEW THAT GRAVY WASNT A SOFT DRINK. IT COULD COME IN MANY FLAVORS LIKE BROWN OR WHITE, CHICKEN, PORK, BEEF, FISH, TURKEY, OR WHATEVER. THEY COULD EVEN MIX IT WITH WHISKEY AND SELL IT AS A MIXED DRINK....

I am a bad debater.

Viper-King
thett3

I think I'm a bad debater because I have only won 1 out of my 7 debates and that my win percentage is not even 15% yet. I think that I am also bad at debating because many people believe me to make no sense and to have nonsense arguments. I will therefore finally say that I am a bad debater....

Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed

dvhoose
mongeese

As I was browsing through my list of previous debates, I found this one. I had quite a bit of fun debating it, and decided I'd revive it and see if anyone else thought it would be fun. As my opponent, you would be arguing FOR the resolution; that Humpty Dumpty WAS pushed, and didn't simply fall. I will leave the first round decision up to my opponent. They can simply accept, or they can create a case. I have no problem with either. To avoid semantics, Humpty Dumpty is the nursery rhyme...

"God" did not create the universe.

bobsatthepub
Agent_D

God has been around forever. To represent forever we draw a circle, it has no beginning it has no end. Take note of the circle, it never changes. No matter how many laps you do the circle is going to stay the same. As god is the circle, and god is all that was, god would never have changed, god would never have move forward, god would never have made a decision and thus would not have created the universe. He would have been caught in a continuous loop of pointless existence. Any question...

Better to rent a house than to buy a house

NSG
WaximusMaximus

I believe it is better to rent a house than to buy a house. At first I disagree with the statement, I have always thought it is always better to own a house than to rent one, especially the market is going down now. However, after weighing the opportunity cost ,analyzing on the current market, and calculating on the possible save/loss, I realize there is a tightrope that must be walked before picking a side to fall in. The debate will be beneficial to both sides, it will also help everyone...
