The only debate I'm currently involved in will likely end before tomorrow evening. As such, I need something to debate. Feel free to post resolutions you would personally like to debate with me or just suggestions on debates you would like to see me do.

Suggestions:
(1) Repressed memories exist.
(2) The Venus-figures excavated during the Upper Paleolithic Period are sufficient proof of a worship of a mother goddess in Paleolithic societies.

(3) Zoroaster's birth [general topic]
(4) Cain's curse justifies racist attitudes to blacks.

Evolution of modern man occurred in isolation rather than simultaneously
ie: People in one part of the world evolved a significant amount of time earlier/later than people of other regions

1) There should be stringent restrictions on the ability of employers to conduct background checks and reference checks.

2) It should be illegal for employers to disqualify candidates from consideration based on the fact that they provided no references.

3) It should be illegal for colleges to require recommendations as a pre-requisite for admission.

I am open to debating any of these resolutions with anyone as long as you are ranked higher than me.

Falcon I think at some point you said you'd debate any nuclear weapon resolution?

Did I say that to you? I did want to debate you again but I suggested something entirely different. I think you might be talking about the thread where I mentioned why I joined DDO. I wanted to debate saying that the NPT was unfair and I did debate it with quarterexchange already.

I would certainly take the Con side on this one.

You got any unique categories in mind? History, maths, or something of that sort? If you want common topics, I'd be interested in these later on (as Pro):

Death Penalty is a justified form of punishment

The existence of strictly authoritarian states strengthen/promote freedom in the rest of the world

Islam is probably not a man-made religion

Utilitarianism does not favor fornication


Something along those lines.

I'll oppose any of the arguments for believing in god (so long as they don't involve polonium halos).

The problem of evil proves that an omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent god does not exist.

I'm for abortion and gay marriage.
