Ninja are better than pirates

OlinB
Chrion

First of all, please do not use specific stories as part of your argument, we are looking at the cultural impact, as well how well they would fair in combat situations against each other. Let's keep it classy. First off, weapons. A katana, the main weapon of ninjas, have the range and slicing capacity to easily win against a sabre-wielding pirate. It also has the technical advantage over a broadsword or rapier; the broadsword is quite heavy and the hilt of a rapier can make it difficult to swi...

Schools Shouldn't Give Homework

Debatequeen1
Pfalcon1318

Kids all ready go to school for a fairly long amount of hours each day. They are constantly doing work and learning. A kids life should not be just school. Homework doesn't make you learn more, so why is it necessary? There is plenty of time in a school day to complete assignments....

Legalizing Gay marriage

J118
YLO-M

I would first like to say I do not hate Homosexuality, but neither do I approve of it. I respect their choices, but can never approve of the relationship. With that out of the way, I would say that gay marriage, although understandable, should not be legalize and can lead to a bad precedent on society. If we allow gay marriage what's to say that incest shouldn't be illegal, or pedophilia, or in extreme settings bestiality and necrophilia. To me gay marriage can be the first step on rewriting...

Can a person prove their existence?

RomanCatholic
Badman

I am arguing that a person cannot prove that they exist in the physical world. By physical world I mean that they must exist in physical form and NOT in the imagination or mind of a being. If my opponent is unable to prove his existence than he will be defeated. Rules: My opponent will use each round in order to give as many "proofs" for his existence as he/she wishes. I will use the beginning of each round to rebuke the his/her proofs. In the 2nd post of the 5th round my opponent is not...

Bipolar vs Unipolar. A unique argument of unfactoids.

Max.Wallace
Domr

Science tells us if you are Bipolar, you have a problem, a medical one that only those with the big brains of Unipolarism can diagnose. I would suggest that if you do not get mad or sad at anything then you are unipolar. I have not been diagnosed, by capitalist or communists. I know myself. What is your self diagnosis? A) Not bipolar? B) Unipolar? C) Undecided? D) none of the above? Lets have a verbal skirmish. The truth in my mind is that Unipolar people, those with all...
