Death penalty, also called capital punishment, is when a government or state executes (kills) someone, usually because they have done something wrong. Executions in most countries have become rarer in recent centuries. The death penalty is a disputed and controversial topic. About one third of the countries in the world have laws that allow the death penalty.[1] The United States, The People's Republic of China, Japan and Iran are examples of countries that have a death penalty.

Feminism

Zarroette

What is the problem with feminism? Why do we have to keep this word alive, just so women can have same rights as men? Talking about the mans intelligence or strength, is that really an argument?

Skynet

I will endeavor to show that there is a weightier body of evidence that God exists above my opponent's. This will be based primarily on historical events. You should be familiar with history from secular and Biblical sources. It is my position that the question of the existence of the God of the Bible is 1. testable: Susceptible to being tested.

For reasons such as forfeiting in previous debates, I hope desperately that my contender will step up and present arguments! I thank you ahead of time if you do. Why I want to debate BDPershing is because of the issues he brings up here: http://www.debate.org/forums/society/topic/59567/ My contentions are simple: that abortion is a form of murder and is morally, spiritually,and physically wrong. I hope that the designated opponent will accept this instigation and debate to his full capacity o...

Here we gather to discuss the age old question. No, I am not talking about, "Why are we here" or "Does God exist?" I am speaking of the legendary debate of who would win in a fight, an astronaut, or a caveman? I will fight to my last dying breath that a cavemen would destroy an astronaut in a bare-fisted brawl to the bony below. Anyone who dares challenge me, I encourage you to try....
