Students should be engaged in extra curricular activities

The first round of this debate will be views on the topic, and the same pattern will continue throughout the debate, with the choice of rebuttals and counters from the second round onwards. The adage "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" has acquired a lot of significance today. This is because today"s kids are told to "Play less and study more!" Kids today are forced to get very high GPAs (Grade Point Averages) or secure very high percentages (read unrealistically high!). Thanks to the...

Astrology is pseudoscience.

SirMaximus

Astrology has been believed in since c. 1000 BCE, at the latest. Many people still believe in some form of astrology today- nearly every newspaper has a daily column devoted to it. However, I argue that the belief in astrology is pure superstition. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were not discovered until after the creation of astrology. The earliest astrologers only took the other planets in our solar system into account. This, I argue, destroys the very basis of astrology, because it debunks how as...

It takes just as much faith to believe in evolution as it does to believe in God.

djwood

It today's secular society, especially in schools, it is taught that evolution is "scientific", therefore correct, while believe in a superior being, such as God, is "religious", therefore incorrect and improper to teach in schools. In this debate, I will prove that there is just as much evidence for a superior being/God as there is for evolution....

Christian Theology Is Nothing More than Obfuscated and Exaggerated Lies

Sagey
CountCheechula

There is absolutely no evidence for anything reported in the New Testament.There is no evidence for the Legendary Jesus Christ that performed miracles and was supposedly Resurrected.Even Saul never met Jesus and made much of his letters up out of his own attempts to take control of Christianity and made laws to suit his own personal goals and exaggerated Jesus to win over Pagans.His writings started around 20 years aft...

Is a Capitalist government beneficial for the nation in the long run?

Politicallion
AniKnight

This issue is controversial and I am willing to debate on it, as I need answers. A Capitalist government envisages enormous amounts of economic growth but will eventually turn out to be a struggle for the middlemen and the poor to live due to the increase in the price of basic commodities. Capitalism is like providing the field with fertilizers, You might reap a bounty crop in a short period of time. But, continuous use would mean stripping the field of it's nutritive value. Handling a nation...

DDhananjay
