Is homosexuality solely genetic in origin?

Jzyehoshua
Jyohe

I will be arguing that homosexuality is NOT purely genetic in origin, but rather is a lifestyle choice, a societal trend that has increased in popularity in recent years. My position will be that rather than an immutable characteristic, homosexuality is influenced by circumstantial or environmental factors and personal decisions. Opponent will argue that homosexuality IS genetic in origin. First round is for acceptance....

Airpower can hold Land.

Jingle_Bombs

A simple two round discussion about whether or not air forces by themselves can hold land. I intend to show through historical examples and modern warfare theory that the air forces of today can indeed complete the Army's role of 'clear, secure, and occupying land' without needing large battalions of ground troops for support. Con will have to prove that winning major wars still requires a ground component and that boots on the ground are vital for its success. This debate is open to anyone with...

0.9999 (repeating) = 1

TheTom
Jzyehoshua

Normally debates are about opinions. This is about fact. I maintain that 0.9999 (going on forever) is the same thing mathematically, and realistically as 1. I expect my opponent to have an understanding of math, such as basic algebra, and rules of infinity. First round is for acceptance AND posting arguments. For the sake of simplicity, the term 0.999... will mean 0.999 repeating. FAIR WARNING: This is a mathematical fact. The evidence is on my side. If you choose to accept this argument, you...

Sexism

PaigeZ
JayConar

I've been doing research on sexism for my persuasive essay and I would first like to point out that sexism isn't just for women but for men as well. The definition of sexism is prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex. Some examples are, when you hear the word rape, what popped into your mind? Unfortunately most of you if not all thought of men. Well a dear friend of mine who is a male was raped by a female. How often do you hear of that? not of...

The Earth orbits the Sun

yoshidino
Rubikx

Early scientists once held the geocentric position that the Sun orbited the earth. Later, Darwin introduced the heliocentric model, Earth rotating the sun. This model was excepted and the other discarded and thought prehistoric and pretty much as stupid as the Earth being flat. My question: What PROOF do you have to confirm the heliocentric model? Because I have proof that completely debunks it. And please mention the pendulum....
