This debate won't be started for at least another 2 weeks. Between then and now, I'll work on the resolution. Any advice on that part is welcome. The debate should be impossible to accept and I will be nominating judges and doing a choose winner option. Judges are yet to be determined and any suggestions by potential opponents will be considered. I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...

Who Would Make a Better Animorph?

First of all, I would not normally challenge someone like Thett to a debate. These people have much more worthwhile things to do than to accept debate challenges from noobs. I will understand completely if Thett decides not to accept this debate. He's a busy guy. However, a few days back, Thett expressed some interest in the topic which I was preparing to debate. That topic was the "Animorphs" series by K.A. Applegate. So, I thought that perhaps Thett would like to debate this topic. I certainl...

One can be a Christian and not believe in Hell

My opponent made this claim in the comments section of one of my debates. Let's put it to the test. A Christian is defined by Merriam Webster as[1] "one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ." Hell is where non-Christians go to be tormented for all eternity. First round is for acceptance. 1. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/christian...

Any gun other than pistols should not be sold to citizens.

First off, I must say that I am not American so I am not familiar with any statistics or laws you may have. I will be defending a point based on logic, rather than sources. It would probably be hard to source in such debate anyways. I have seen quite a lot of people defend the availability of larger weapons - I will argue that they serve no use if you are but a citizen. As for the second amendment in America particularly, I must say that it is ridiculous anyone would be willing to use that...

The new DDO Voting System is superior to the old

Zarroette

Resolved: The new DDO voting system is superior to the old one. I am affirming.The new DDO voting system is a system of up/down voting where the judge selects a single winner for the debate. The old system was a categorical system weighing Spelling and Grammar, Conduct, and Sources as well as arguments. As a courtesy to my opponent, we'll use that system for the round. Round 1 is for acceptance only. No new arguments in the last round. Good luck.

Mikal is the best debater ever OTHER than imabench

thett3

I argue http://www.debate.org/Mikal/ is the best debater ever because of his insanely low lose rate and the number of debates he has won. (0ver 160! Oh my god! And losing merely one debate, and even THAT debate has only 5 point difference...) I do not argue about imabench...the sheer number of debates he has is just...wow. So make your argument about some other debater other than imabench! (how is that guy a troll, anyways? He's just this insanely good deabter.)...

I made another debate by this title the other day, but it was hijacked by a troll. Therefore, I'm making it again, with the hope that an intelligent debater accepts. First round is for acceptance, burden of proof is shared....
