So I've noticed that several threads have been made on Debate Topics users would like to debate. So I decided to make this thread for people to post those lists as opposed to making seperate threads.

Here's my list (note: THBT means "This House believes that"):

Politics
- EU Sanctions against Russia should be lifted (Pro)
- Morsi's verdict should be appealed (Pro)
- The Northern Gateway Pipeline should be built (Con)
- Western Intervention is counter-productive in the stabilization of the Levant (Pro)

Religion
-Abu Bakr's election as Caliph was lawfully legitimate. (Pro)
-Islam is the most logical of the Abrahamic faiths (Pro)
-Islam is the most violent of the Abrahamic faiths (Con)
-The Fine-Tuned argument is sound (Pro)
- The Islamic State is not a legitimate Caliphate (Pro, resolution subject to change)

History
- Greece would have been better off under (Achamenid) Persian rule (Pro)
- Religion was not the primary cause for the Taiping Revolt (Pro)
- Religion was not the primary cause for the First Crusade (Pro)
- China would have been better off under the Guomingdang (Pro or Con, position not yet affirmed)
- France would have been better off under Moorish rule [Pro, guaranteed flamebait ;)]
"Praise Allah."
