Commercialization in education is Ethical or non Ethical

shreeji
ashwin.sharma921

Commercialization of education has been a fairly recent trend in China resulting from the educational reform in the last two decades. It mainly materializes itself in mushrooming private schools at different levels and public and private universities at high education level. In a sense, it has added a financial element to the qualifications of attending private schools and public and private universities. Undoubtedly, it affects millions of families. As a result, it also changes the traditional...

Online relationships don't work

Truth_seeker
TheShadowCupcake

I know i would've posted this when i was younger, but guess it'll have to do lol I argue that online relationships don't work for the reasons that we as humans need physical interaction (face-to-face communication, hugging, etc.) While yes, they might work for an extent, eventually, you will need to see each other in person. Online relationships of any kind can never substitute for real life relationships. Online relationships can get superficial as you both cannot know who the real person is...

Justin Bieber is a better person than what you make him to be.

AndreaMariee

What I don't understand is everyone claims that they hate Justin but don't have a good reason to hate him .He goes through so much.Like that petition to deport him was ridiculous...He's doing what everyone else is doing and I don't see none of them getting threaten and wanted out of the country .Everyone treats him so wrong i understand why most of you think he's full of himself, he wants to be treated like a real person but he doesn't want the consequences other people have. But still. He goes...

The Christian God As Described In the Bible Does Not Exist

AlternativeDavid
telisw37

Rules Round 1: No arguments. Just acceptance. Round 2/3: Arguments and rebuttals Round 4: Closing statements. No new arguments No "god of the gaps" arguments allowed. Any violation of the rules results in conduct points going to the other debater. Mutual violation results in a tie for conduct. Definitions: God of the gaps: If science can't explain it, god did it. Exist: To be real I look forward to a good debate. If you cannot accept it, it is because you have not complet...

Evil is a lack of good

SmallTacos
Aerogant

Hello, and welcome to my debate. I am taking the position of Pro, you of Con if you choose to accept. Please be chivalrous, do not swear, and use no logical fallacies. Godwin's law shall not be invoked. Without further ado, let us begin. I argue that evil is a lack of good. Here is why: for years, people have associated evil with cold and blackness, emptyness, all quite entropic. It is almost as if they knew that good exists but evil does not. For example, in the bible Jesus tells us that...

I Will Lose this Debate

Loveshismom

Voters will decide the winner based on who argued better/funnier/more creative than the other and made a better case for why they should lose the debate. I know, it's mind-boggling, but to whoever accepts: please try to pretend this is a normal debate except you're trying to make it seem that the opponent is winning rather than you.Round one acceptance only.Please make this fun for both of us, don't forfeit or concede. Make actual arguments! :D...

How/When will the world end? Judgement?

CountCheechula
Truth_seeker

This debate does not apply to the Pro/Con status. But they still are labels, since I made the debate I chose Con, Con is cooler. Con sounds the bad guy if you think about. Just wanting to know between a smart christian mind and hopefully get answers. Internet Church Talk. You can start your arguments I don't care. Thanks!...

"Judge Judy" will be taken off the air

Maitlandplace
squirtdonthurt

Every 5 days a week channel 2 keeps airing "Judge Judy" on regular TV with her showing no courtesy or respect and it doesn't teach families and children a lesson when there is nothing good on TV to watch, so it's better for me to get "Judge Judy" off the air because of her harsh and negative attitude....
