I would like to thank my opponent in advance. This being one of her first debates, I wish her the best of luck. I will let her offer the first arguments, however some clarification is in order: I DEFINE: DEMOCRACY- government by the people; especially : rule of the majority (In this case, we exclude republics that follow a loosely democratic view)* SOCIETY-a voluntary association of individuals for common ends; especially : an organized group working together or periodically meeting becaus...

(Sorry about the resolution's sloppiness. There wasn't enough room) I would ask that all debating begin in R2. This debate will be in the LD format and will abide by the following rules: 1) Don't talk about fight club 2) R2 is for the case only. 3) Rs3-5 are intended for rebuttal, refutation, and extension or defense of points. 4) Instead of "My opponent" each debater will have to refer to their opponent as a nickname of their choosing (ie, I choose Thug Life... Which I do) to be estab...

Thank you, whoever accepts this debate. I DEFINE: SUPREME COURT- 1. The highest federal court in the United States, consisting of nine justices and having jurisdiction over all other courts in the nation. RULING-an official or authoritative decision, decree, statement, or interpretation (as by a judge on a point of law) UNCONSTITUTIONAL- not according or consistent with the constitution of a body politic (as a nation [in this case, the US constitution])

A ban on sex between men should be introduced in order to help prevent the spread of AIDS

We all know that there is no cure for AIDS and that the disease kills millions of people every year. We also know that it is primarily spread through the exchange of bodily fluids and by far the most common way of contracting AIDS is through sexual intercourse between men. http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2009/aug/09082609.html Incredibly, however, in many countries, the 'right' of men with unconventional sexual preferences to pursue "the love that dare not speak its name" to its ultimate p...

Communism, while perhaps impractical, represents a Utopian society

draxxt
Mickeyrocks

What man wants, above all else, is to be equal. To share the same amount of opportunities as his neighbor. However, this is simply not the case in a normal society. There was a need for order, for unity, and for equality to the extent where one man was not held higher than the rest. When men like Karl Marx and Frederich Engels began thinking, the only viable solution, and the proposed one, was Communism. When first introduced, Communism was a brilliant idea. Many people thought it would work,...

In terms of the Christian God, we are all agnostic.

I will be arguing PRO for the resolution that in terms of the Christian God, all human beings are agnostic. Thanks to my opponent for accepting. I will start by defining some terms, and ask that if you don't agree with the definitions presented, please don't accept the debate. Agnosticism: "The philosophical view that the truth value of certain claims — particularly metaphysical claims regarding theology, afterlife or the existence of deities, ghosts, and so on — is unknown or, depending on t...

If God is the omnipotent and omniscient creator of the world, then complete free will is impossible

johannesjones
draxxt

This is an argument that I have most come into contact with regarding Christianity, but it is also relevant in monotheism in general. Thanks to my opponent for accepting this debate, and good luck. The God I refer to is a being, for instance, the God of the Abrahamic faiths. This argument accepts the omnipotence and omniscience of God the creator as its independent variable. If someone knows everything, and created everything, then they know what they have created. God knows about every bl...
