Abortion is a form of murder

PervRat

This is, I believe, the most contentious and embattled political issue of all time. I am actually quite afraid to take it on, especially being so new here, but I hope my unique position (an anti-abortion atheist) might make things more challenging than usual for an opponent otherwise equally entrenched, because they would be accustomed to dealing with religious arguments I will not use. Because of the contentiousness, and admittedly selfishly to allow myself more leeway to amend whatever scre...

Corporate greed is more harmful than taxes collected by the government

PervRat

I put the topic up for debate that: Corporate greed is more harmful than taxes collected by the government I declare that PRO (myself) shall need to prove, to win this debate, that Corporate greed has a greater cost with a lower return to the people of the United States than taxes collected by the United States government (and state and local governments). I declare that CON shall need to establish the converse: that the taxes collected by the government are a worse harm than corporate gree...

Smoking should be made illegal

abard124

Everyone knows that smoking kills. That's not why it should be made illegal. Nicotine is very addictive. That is not why it should be illegal. I am not a smoker because I value my own life. However, I believe suicide, should someone want it, should be legal. I consider smoking "prolonged suicide." Honestly, that is why I don't smoke, but that is not why it should be illegal. Okay, I'm done with that weird repetitive schpiel. I'll get to the point ("Get on with it!"). Smokers inhale approximate...

The current economic recession is proof that conservatism is ineffective.

wjmelements

I will post my argument next round because my opponent is PRO and is accepting a burden of proof. The current recession is referring to the recession that officially began in 2008 in the United States. Conservatism is a set of beliefs that endorse minimal government economic control. The same is true for libertarians, but we aren't discussing social policy....

Debate.org is rigged

Alex

It is as clear as day, all of the numbers for votes have been changed on all of my debates and now I am losing every single debate. The large hadron collider debate i had is absolute proof. I had more than 19 points in that debate and it was neck and neck now i have less points than I did and my opponent has 93 this is so F##cked up. I am even losing debates that I had previously won where the voting period ended. Something stinks to high heaven. Maybe they consider me a threat and are trying to...

Socialism is a step backwards in human evolution

sadolite
JBlake

It is taught that evolution is how life started and that god and religion are just archaic ways of thinking. With evolution now established as fact in our schools, I thought it be a most logical argument that socialism is a step backwards in human evolution. Socialism has been tried and tried over hundreds of years and history has proved that it brings all human life to the least common denominator as it requires in the end that everyone have no more or no less than the next person in order to b...

gregthedestroyer

I will first off thank anybody who accepts this debate. 1) Health risks I am going to risk some health risks involved with drinking. This risks that i am going to list can happen to anybody. Sure there are tons of other things that can lead to these risks but why have one more thing out there that can hurt you and or other people. Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to serious health problems, including: Cancer of the pancreas, mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus and liver, as well as b...
