Evolution will be defined as the process through which older life forms adapted to their environments and slowly became more modern life forms. The world is over 4 billion years old.

The primary aim of cinema is to entertain the masses. Cinema is one of the major source of entertainment in this global village. Long back cinema served the purpose of educating but in these days it is only just meant for entertainment and it does not teach moral values to the people.Today, people do not like taking advice and films based on giving advice and moral to audience fails miserably.So the sole aim of the makers of cinema is to gain a profit from these films. Most of the people in...

Do religious leaders have a fiduciary responsibility to those who follow them?

PauseAndThink

My job as Con is to show that religious leaders are not what they appear and that their followers don't get what they are expecting out of the relationship. In this debate we will not be addressing founders of a religion, Muhammad founded Islam so he would not be included in this debate. Moses on the other-hand could be included because Moses was not the founder of Judaism. Of course I want to keep this debate in a Biblical framework but that is not mandatory. Stepping outside the bounda...

First of all, social networking sites can help you gain confidence. Social Networking sites such as facebook, google +, and twitter lets you talk and argue or communicate with millions of people. The ones who cannot gain self confidence in real life could practice their self-confidence in the social networking sites. Since there are more people you can connect and communicate in the social networking sites, you can practice your self-confidence with different kinds of people you can't meet in y...

ConservativePolitico
Kc1999

This debate will be about whose view of the State of Nature is better, Hobbes or Rousseau. I affirm that Rousseau's is superior. If you do not know the ins and outs of each of these positions please DO NOT VOTE ON THIS DEBATE. Since this is a debate and not a political philosophy lecture we will not cover the topics in much depth outside of the purview of the debate. I trust my opponent knows these topics well.First Round - AcceptanceSecond Rou...

Is Christianity true?

prefdave
superbowl9

I'm a Christian and I'm not ashamed to say so. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. There are many out there who dont believe in Christianity or in Jesus or in the Bible, mainly 'coz: 1. It sounds like a fairy tale 2.Its irrational 3.It presents a high moral standard 4.Its too good to be true In this debate, I intend to present proof for the truth of Christianity, and hopefully convince my opponent about it as well....
