Debate.Org User Information Bulletin (Official)


Aloha!This debate, formerly known as the "Debate.Org Presidential Bulletin," is part of an effort I am making to reach out to more areas of the site and to update more users about site programs. I recognize many members may not frequently visit the forums, and so I conceived of this debate as an alternate way to disseminate information out into the larger DDO community. I will post information about resources that users can avail themselves of in this debate, as well...

All Dreams Will Come True


It seems many things have suggested that all dreams will come true. By "dream," I mean an ambition; I do not mean a mental experience experienced during sleep. It seems the things include, but may not be limited to, music lyrics, music videos, speeches, quotes, guidance, advice, statements from significant figures, the extreme, sometimes invisible values that have already been found within and about the universe, and, if he exists, God. Shirley Ann Jackson, Ph.D., President of Rensselaer Poly...

All Dreams Will Come True


It seems I often hear that all dreams will come true. It seems I hear suggestions of the type in music lyrics, movies, speeches, and statements by significant figures. Shirley Ann Jackson, Ph.D., President of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a college I attended, said in an NPR interview on March 4, 2009 "The advice I give to young people is fundamentally to not let others put limits on who you think you can be, ... ." Around the time President Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017, h...

Any fact or debate view I can cast doubt on


I can disprove or provide doubt for any debate, point of view or fact you provide. Everything has 2 sides of the story to it and every topic can be disproved or challenged. For example, you get caught speeding, I can take it to court and challenge it by stating "When was the last time the radar was calibrated"? As it might not be reading the speed correctly therefore I was not speeding. Another example might be an incriminating e-mail that is sent, I can argue that I was hacked and I didn't send...

Open-Topic Discussion


Hi, to whoever considers accepting this offer to an open-topic free-style discussion/debate, allow me to elaborate what this is: The format is simple: Pick ANY topic you would like to talk about and go for it. I encourage picking something you are more familiar with to limit the amount of time spent providing citations, as I would much rather prefer a direct explanation of the issue (of course background and data to back it up is appreciated). There is no true structure to this, other than...

Should there be special bathrooms for transgenders?


I believed there should be transgender bathrooms because forcing them to be with their "original" genders or the opposite gender can be offensive because they have chosen to become the opposite gender for a variety of reasons and I believe we, as humans, should respect their decisions. Also, giving them their own bathrooms can give them a sense of individuality, knowing that they have a type of bathroom made specifically made for them. It would also give them a choice as to which bathroom they w...
