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...

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...

The Big Bang did not occur

GaryBacon
JustCallMeTarzan

The Big Bang theory is not credible in my view. I do not believe that it occurred and I will challenge others to show me otherwise. Since that is the essence of my opening statement, my opponent will have 3 full rounds to give evidence in favour of the Big Bang. I, on the other hand, will have only 2 (plus these few sentences). But I believe it will be sufficient to prove my point....

My presidential candidate of choice MUST believe in evolution.

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...

The US should make new funds for the Water For The Poor Act to solve for the African water crisis.

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....

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....

Should we be involved in the war in Irag!

Danielle

I feel that we should be involved in the War. Now by looking at my name i am a part of the armed forces. I leave June 9th for Paris Island, so that has an influence on my opinon. I look back and my first question for anyone who is against the war is do you remember sept. 11 and watching people holding hands and jumping out of the 83 floor to escape the flames. because terrorist thought it necessary to attack us. Now i know alot of people make the arguement that we shouldnt have gone to Iraq b...

Facebook is better than myspace

RuthBaderLover
Danielle

I have a few simple points as too why facebook is better: 1. The adds are smaller and less obvious 2. You don't get friend requests from random porn stars 3. Pop-ups for porn don't come up 4. There are limitless numbers of applications 5. You can easily see people at your schools or city 6. There is more customization 7. It is not as slow to load...

When I went to highschool, the debaters sat at the loser table, while the cool kids like myself pointed at them at laughed. Face facts. Only losers debate. Cool people have better things to do!...
