The Bible is an immoral bit of utter crap.

Tatarize
mongeese

In the comments of the debate http://www.debate.org/debate/8102/ : DATCMOTO's offered a counterargument to my claim that thought-crimes were immoral by citing some thought crimes in the Bible. I contended that the that was not an argument against my position but a splendid argument that "the Bible is an immoral bit of utter crap." You claimed that this was offensive: As proper conduct dictates I now offer this debate on two points to be proved: 1) The Bible is an immoral bit of utte...

Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal in the United States

Freeman
Contradiction

I want to begin by saying how delighted I am to be debating Contradiction on this very important social issue. It's good to be able to argue with someone who is so philosophically inclined. For my part of the debate, I'll be arguing that same-sex marriage should be legal in the United States. Accordingly, in this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no legally tenable reasons to ban same-sex marriage. And secondly, there are good reasons to think th...

Sex Education should be taught in public schools.

I think that the title basically speaks for itself as well as the definitions. So on with my opening. Contentions: I. A bias free education is the right of every child, including sex education especially since virtually 100% of them will use it, even in marriage. II. To not teach sex education would be harmful to students III. The facts should be taught in school, morals should be taught at home because morals differ from family to family....

Flag burning needs to be illegal. Burning the flag is simply unpatriotic. A loyal american would protect the flag, not destroy it. The flag is the national symbol of our country....

The Big Bang Theory rationally disproves God

Evan_MacIan
Korezaan

I was reading a debate in which my opponent stated that the Big Bang theory rationally disproves God, and I wanted to get a little explanation for that. So, I think Korezaan should prove the point that the Big Bang Theory rationally disproves God, which I just don't get. Before I let him get started, I'd just like to say a few things. I believe the Big Bang Theory is basically correct. I believe Creationism is basically incorrect. I read Genesis at the allegorical level, as do most of t...

Affirmative Action is Right and Necessary

early american settlers were racist. they captured people in africa, forced them to work in america under ridiculous conditions, then freed them and left them homeless; many families were broken up to begin with, so a lot of households had no nuclear fmaily at its core. once freed, black people had a hard time finding work due to discrimination. many found blue collar jobs as time went on and endured harsh work conditions because they had no other choice. they worked for low wages; this caus...

George Bush is a good president.

mrpresident

George Bush has destroyed our nation. 1. He implimented No Child Left Behind, overcrowding our good schools and still leaving our bad schools to be bad. 2. He created the Iraq War for the purpose of finding weapons of mass destruction, stopping terrorism, and promoting democracy. They vote, they have no WMDs, and terrorism will NEVER be stopped, and Iraq has nothing to do with it. 3. He lowered out economy significantly, lower than most African nations. 4. He raised gas prices, making tr...
