Race is a Poor Indicator for Differences Between Humans

NDECD1441

I am starting this debate as another one I took part in with a similar subject didn't continue past my acceptance of the debate. I'm going to explain my position(s): -I am of the opinion that race is poorly defined in general, and does not hold any scientific weight. The slight variations in skin colour and any other physical properties does not warrant any reason to separate these so-called 'races' of humanity, and this goes two-fold for those that hold these races to be separate species of hu...

Should students be in smaller classes?

blueflames228
Natethemate

Students who were in a small class in grades 4 to 6 had better school achievement and higher wages as adults than those who were in large classes. This is shown in research done at IFAU, the Institute for Evaluation of Labor Market and Education Policy, in Sweden. Smaller classes are also found to be profitable to society. Whether a large or small class size plays any role in student learning is heatedly debated. Previous (primarily American) research has shown that small classes improve scho...

Whoever has the better gun will win this shootout. Rules: 1. This is not a role-play. Our respective guns will be graded in certain categories, which include but are not limited to: range, firepower (RoF), versatility, damage, maneuverability, reload time, recoil, accuracy, and any other categories you would like to add. 2. G...

Fire Is Alive

thegibson
SJM

I will be arguing that fire is alive. If you accept, your job is to argue that fire is not alive. There is no burden of proof- both sides have to prove their point equally. For the purposes of this debate, the characteristics something needs to be alive are movement, respiration, sensitivity, growth, reproduction, excretion, and nutrition. For further definitions of these terms, see here: https://www.sciencelearn.org.nz/resources/14-characteristics-of-living-things First round is acceptanc...

Driving a car slow is better than driving it fast in city because people wander in city and driving fast may lead to accident.there are lot of speed brakers in the city and when a car comes fast and stops at a speed braker the car will get damaged and the person driving it would get major injuries.Driving slow is safety and accidents won't happen.On March month a professional racer of Chennai met with an accident because of rash driving. http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/racer-ashwin-sund...

The proposition is that God exists. Pro will be defending the proposition that God exists, while Con will be arguing that Pro has not established that God exists.By accepting this debate, Pro accepts that they have the burden to do two things:1. Provide a coherent and reasonable definition of God2. Provide cogent arguments or evidence for the existence of GodI will explain what each of these mean.Requirement 1

Abortion

N_CBC
Forever23

According to http://www.numberofabortions.com/ There have been over 90,000 Abortions today across the entire world. The majority of people might choose the pro side to this, abortion should exist. And I have noticed the main argument for this is "The baby is not considered alive and/or human unit birth." An Abortion typically occurs between the 13th and the 20th weeks of fetal development. By the 13th week of fetal development, the baby has already developed its organs and body parts meaning t...

All zoos should be banned

Saquap
TheCanadaBreach_2

This house believes that we should ban zoos on global scale as it has been proved that animals in captivity live for less time than animals in the wild. Some zoos are also trying to conserve the animal and help it to regain its numbers however keeping animals in captivity is not the right way to increase animal population. Instead we should just create numerous, very large wildlife reserves, where the animals are allowed to roam freely and thus they will have a higher chance of breeding because...
