This topic is about if battle ships deserve a part in today's navy.

In my opinion battle ships deserve a part in the modern day navy. There massive size and armor can withstand hits from some of the most powerful anti ship weapons of the modern day era.
Plus they could provide endless artillery support for beach landings on a coastal area.

"There massive size and armor can withstand hits from some of the most powerful anti ship weapons of the modern day era." so can the common support ships such as Cruisers, Destroyers, and Submarines. And Anti-ship weapons designed by rivaling countries would have specifically produced more powerful for that purpose. And The heart of the US fleets are the Aircraft Carriers that still requires a number of support ships. Battleships are obsolete and not required. "they could provide endless artillery support for beach landings on a coastal area." Never going to happen. There will never be an amphibious landing of an invasion force or Large group of Marines or the Army. There is no practical use for it, and the US has no costal enemies, and It would be required that we are at war with a Nation, which is very unlikely. Even if Sea to Ground artillery support is needed, Cruisers, Destroyers and air support would easily provide, along with an array of Missiles and artillery from auxiliary sources.
