Euthanasia should be legalized but with requirements

Letsdebate24
countzander

What I mean by requirements is the person seeking out euthanasia should not granted the request just because they are having the worst day of the life or because their spouse divorced or any reason of the sort. In other words the person would have to be suffering from a terminal disease or just have not intrinsic value. Religion is bound to be brought into the debate as a foundation for why it should not be legalized but I welcome it....

U2 is superior to every other band in the world.

Kokirian
Gaurdian_Rock

Now, I know what you may be thinking. "Is this even debatable?" Well, no. The fact that U2 is the best band in the world is not an opinion, but pure and unadulterated truth. Surely there is no other band in the world that even comes close to U2's musical prowess, songwriting skill, live performances, religious ambiguity, and general awesomeness. The con must accept the burden of proof and provide one band that dares to contend with U2. It's hard to condense U2's awesomeness into 8,000 charact...

Federal funding of abstinence-only sex education should cease

Maya9
joshuaXlawyer

Before I begin, I would to clarify the purpose of this debate. This is not a debate about whether or not schools should be teaching sex education. This debate deals with the fact that schools DO teach sex education. My position in this debate is as stated above: federal funding for abstinence-only sex education should cease. My reasons for this position are as follows: 1. Most abstinence-only curricula contain errors and distortions of fact, and therefore contradict the purpose of educatio...

Logic Game

Chrysippus
Charlie_Danger

Random logic game Overview: Each player posts four arguments, on any (clean) topic he chooses, and on as many (clean) topics as he chooses; they can be syllogisms, paragraphs, sentences, or symbols; they can be written, in a video linked (with the intended argument pointed out in the post), in a picture or graph linked, or in a news article linked, as long as it does not require a subscription to read the article. At least one of the arguments each round needs to be subtly fallacious. This...
