My presidential candidate of choice MUST believe in evolution.

artC
advidiun

When choosing a candidate to support, I first discard the ones who don't believe in evolution. If you believe the universe was created six thousand years ago, I can not possibly take you seriously. I think it's important to vote for someone who believes AT LEAST in evolution. How can we have someone lead our country in a fair, logical and reasonable mannor when they don't use logic to come to a reasonable conclusion on the origin of our world? I am not debating about a belief in god or th...

300 millions are without water in Sub-Saharan Africa, and the problem is only growing worse. We need to fully fund the Water For The Poor Act in order to solve. It was enacted in 05, but has only been funded 10 million for regions in Africa. It needs 200 milion. Many credible literature authors beleive it can solve, and it solves for: -Water conflicts -Disease -And America's lack of Soft Power....

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...

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...
