The Death Penalty

AlternativeDavid
KhalifV

Rules: Round 1: Acceptance, no arguments yet. Round 2/3/4: Arguments and rebuttals Round 5: Closing statements, no new arguments or rebuttals -No semantics -No trolling Failure to adhere to these rules results in the points for conduct going to the other debater. Mutual violation results in a tie for conduct. Burden of proof is on me to show the death penalty should not be abolished....

Psychiatrist vs Psychologist [?]

BlurtItOUT

OK, Psychiatrist is the one who's specializing in diagnosis and treatment for mental illness. Meanwhile, Psychologist deals with diagnosing and treating diseases of the brain, emotional disturbance, and behavior problems. Which is, both of them deals with people who has mental illnesses. But, what is the BIG difference? And, which is better? For me, I guess I'll go for Psychologist. Pick any of the two, defend your answer. Gracias! xo...

Dinosaurs Lived With People

GarretKadeDupre
TruthHurts

I will be arguing that live dinosaurs existed at the same time humans did. I may use the term dinosaur interchangeably with mesosaur or pterosaur. I do not mean birds; that would be abusive use of the term. Voters should exercise their discretion when deciding if my use of the term dinosaur or human becomes abusive.

Oral transmission in the Bible is reliable

Truth_seeker
Sagey

Reliability will be measured by the ability to recall memory to the point where the essentially entire message is preserved. I will provide evidence for why oral transmission used to pass the Bible (particularly the New Testament) is reliable (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_gospel_traditions). first round acceptance...

Jesus is a myth, based on other pagan religions.

Dr_Obvious
PinValentine

Some people claim that Jesus is just a myth, and point out that He is similar to older pagan deities. They claim that He is, in fact, based on them. I disagree. Pro must accept the burden of proof. Note that this is not about whether or not Jesus actually existed. This debate is strictly about the Biblical Jesus. My contention is that He is unique, in all of history. Pro must show, conclusively, that Jesus is based on other religious writings, and beliefs. Four rounds. Round one: accepta...
