I'll take: Resolved: God probably exists - either side*

Con... obviously.

If you don't mind, I'll just c/p your own previous arguments for my case. Good luck.

I would take these:

Just governments ought to ensure food security for their citizens (as Pro)
A just society ought to have the death penalty (as Con)
Zoos should be abolished and turned into sanctuaries (as Con)

If you want to do that last one, I would want a few days to conduct some preliminary research, and I'd reserve the right to back out after I delve into those findings.

Randianism. But I need to read more on it to debate it ...

I know ... the ones with a "*" are those I'm already educated on. I'm interested in debating the others definitely, but I'll still have to read into them. Sorry.

Randianism. But I need to read more on it to debate it ...

I'm up for it whenever you're ready. If you need sources, I recommend Leonard Peikoff's "Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand", Rand's "Philosophy: Who Needs It", and, of course, the John Galt speech from "Atlas Shrugged". The first is probably the most comprehensive and explicit statement of Objectivism that isn't 1100 pages long.

Since you're an atheist, wouldn't your atheistic arguments be stronger than your theistic ones (unless you're really good at playing Devil's Advocate)? :P

What's that? The Lezbian cosmological argument is sound?

Most of these are sciencey and boring, aside from the abolishment of the U.S federal reserve..that sounds interesting.
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'
