Children should be lied to

brittwaller
polka-dots323

I believe that lying to children, whether in the form of perpetuating silly myths like the existence of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy, or by withholding factual answers to their questions about subjects such as sex and death, is bad, primarily for the children themselves but also for society as a whole. Lying either directly or by omission is harmful because children eventually find out the truth, and an air of distrust is created. Children hear their parents say "It's w...

If you're "pro-life" then you necessarily must be against sexual reproduction

I remembered hearing in a class I took a while back that a large percentage of fertilized eggs (conceptions) do not make it to full-term birth. To back this fact up, I did a quick search on the internet and found a New England Journal of Medicine article which confirms this fact, by claiming that "Only 50 to 60 percent of all conceptions advance beyond 20 weeks of gestation. Of the pregnancies that are lost, 75 percent represent a failure of implantation and are therefore not clinically recogniz...

(Tourney #22) Cats are the greatest animal known to man.

Logical-Master

I'd like to thank Logical-Master for accepting this debate and our judge… for judging. Anyway, I affirm the resolution, "Cats are the greatest animal known to man." First, I'd like to define some key terms that will be important in this round. •A ‘cat' does not simply mean a domestic cat, but any animal in the felidae (feline) family. •I'd like to define animal as any organism in the kingdom animala besides homo sapiens. With that out of the way, I will move onto my points as to why...

Resolved: A fetus' life may be legally sacrificed to protect the life of the mother.

Trying out a new argument I've developed, help me check for holes... The fourteenth amendment to the U.S. constitution states that "Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside." This presents the citizenship criterion known as JURIS SOLI, the right of the soil. If a fetus has not yet been born on American soil, it is not yet an American citizen, and has simil...

The United States is in fact, the greatest nation in the world.

The United States of America, rich in natural beauty, history of incredible overcomings, and freedoms given to individual citizens of this great nation are just the tip of the scale as to what makes up the bulk of truths proving the United States is the greatest nation. I hope to touch on several facts, facts the prove my point that the United States is the greatest nation in the world. -Industry -Technology -Military -Agriculture -Entertainment -Culture -Sports -Education These...

Is dbaldwin1215 better than draxxt?

draxxt

I have to say that I read a debate between dbaldwin1215 and draxxt and I was totally shocked that draxxt even decided to continue with the debate after dbaldwin totally OWNED him. Now, if draxxt has any ego and pride, he should step up to this debate and see who really had more logic....

Gay marriage

Ross
dulinl

Gay marriages ought to be allowed because we need to respect them at rational and consenting human beings with the right to life liberty and property. Moreover, the right to marry does not impede our rights in any way and therefore it is not the governments place to prevent equal treatment. Furthermore, the tradition of marriage has been a fluent and evolving beast that will not be deteriorated by the allowance of free individuals to commit to each other in the name of love and commitment....

Gay marriage should be legal.

adaffodil

Simply put, it should be legal. I can find no compelling argument as to why it shouldn't be legal. So, I will ramble a bit. This must get to 100 words. I like words. Words are wordsy. Words, words, words. Sentences too. Also, two. Sentences are collections of words put together, often beginning with a capital letter and ending with a punctuation mark....
