True Altruism can exist.

My argument is that true altruism can indeed exist. By true altruism, I mean doing good acts without any selfish motivation whatsoever. This is the opposite of egoism and different from reciprocal altruism, which says that people may do good acts in order to get good acts done for them in the future. I argue that true altruism is possible. A good act without an ounce of selfish motivation is quite possible. A good act can be defined as an act that is beneficial to someone other than onesel...

Life is meaningless without God.

My stance is that life is not meaningless without God. Meaning can be found in life even if some deity does not exist. I will expand further in the next rounds as to how, but I wish to give a definition of God first. Any deity can be used in this argument if it follows these basic tenets: 1. The god is supernatural. 2. The god had to do with the creation of life/the universe/mankind in some way. 3. The god is some being (or beings - having multiple deities for this argument is perfectly...

Intelligent Design should not be taught as science.

Intelligent Design theory is not science. It should not be taught as an alternative to evolutionary theory and it has no place in schools. For this argument, I will say public high schools/elementary schools in the United States, to be more specific. Again, Intelligent Design (ID) should NOT be taught as an alternative theory to evolution. ID is laden with religious undertones and is religiously motivated. If it is religiously motivated, then it is not constitutional based on the establi...

Should be the legal drinking age be lowered from 21 to 18?

Hey guys, Here is my argument why I think the age should be lowered. First, I'm not American, I'm from Europe, Czech Republic but currently I live in the US and I'm 19 years old. In my country, our legal drinking age is 18, because when you are 18 you are classified as an adult. You can vote, get your drivers license, buy cigarettes and buy and drink alcohol. You are expected to behave as an adult. I think that 21 years is way too much. Please tell me, how do you think it should be here in t...

The Death Penalty makes more sense than Solitary Confinement for Life.

Okay, I think that the death penalty makes much more sense than does solitary confinement for life. I'd like to provide a reason: The taxpayers of the country that the criminal broke the laws of have to suffer from paying for food, medicine, and security for said criminal. I'd like for whoever accepts this debate to give their reasoning for why they believe that the latter is a better solution than the former. Also, I'd like this debate to be ideological, without outside sources. Tha...

The US should continue to deny homosexuals from serving openly in the military.

Currently, the United States bans homosexuals from serving in the military. Under its policy known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," (DADT), one cannot serve in the military, even if he wants to, if he is openly gay. Rather, the US suggests the person should hide from his own identity, and serve in the military as if he were heterosexual. The US should lift DADT and allow gays to serve in the military. If one feels that it is his duty to serve in the armed forces, so be it. Our administration loves...
