Resolved: The user known as s0m31john ought to seriously consider reading the Naruto manga.

Logical-Master

Greetings. The resolution is exactly as it says. I won't begin arguing until the second round since it hasn't yet occurred to me how I actually wish to argue this. My opponent is free to begin the debate with his first round or wait for me to begin in round 2. It matters little to me. In addition, CON is more than free to define the resolution, but I reserve to the right to argue against his interpretation should I feel that it does not match the intentions of this debate (this is assuming he...

PoeJoe

Earlier today, poejoe received a letter from Phil (owner of this website) ordering him to cease and desist from his part in the website (now closed) "debatedotcom.com", for trademark and copyright infringement. He has 48 hours to comply before it goes to the "next step". Poejoe is not compromising, I suggest he think otherwise. It is my position that he should immediately do whatever Phil says or face the consequences....

The need for "Identity Confirmation" with a phone number is aburd.

bsergent

Debate is inextricably linked with journalism. Journalism ideally is the process of informing people so that they can make a legitimate decision. Debate is the discussion that hopefully precedes that decision. To levy such a heavy handed and draconian caveat to the freeness of speech such as any demand of absolute identification is a corruption of the entire ethic behind debate itself. This entire idea is disgustingly manipulative. Anonymity is a serious personal right, and the desire...

Cats are better than dogs

Lencie

The world goes to the dogs. Maybe now is the right time to decide what is more beneficial for us - as the citizens: To own a dog or to own a cat? The answer is quite simple ladies and gentlemen: Of course that we should own a cat since it is more beneficial for us! Are you wondering why am I claiming so? Read more. Definitions: "are better" = "their possession is more beneficial for their owners" Arguments: 1. Cats are better than dogs because it is much more likely to be killed by a...

Plethora V6 engine, only $2000 (Bad joke, sorry)

LR4N6FTW4EVA

I will provide a list of topics, choose one, you're CON, I'm PRO. Then in R2 I go and post. Note, I am playing Devil's advocate in some places. 1. Most nonhuman Animal's do not deserve rights. 2. Utilitarianism is superior to Kantianism. 3. Sarah Palin is not as incompetent as she is made out to be. 4. Cannibalism of dead people should be socially acceptable, if not encouraged. 5. Agriculture was a mistake. 6. Anarchy could feasibly work. 7. Functionalism is a flawed theory of mind. 8....

My chances of finding a girlfriend are likely less that than of my peers.

DucoNihilum
Labrat228

My argument is simple, the chances of my finding a girlfriend, or a 'partner' (EG, mutual interest with a girl) is less than that of my peers. I will allow at least one round for question / answer session if my opponent chooses to do so. I reserve the right to refuse to answer especially personal or embarrassing questions. For some BG info.... * I am 19 years old * I am a male * I am heterosexual * I have a strong desire for a girlfriend * I have had one girlfriend * We didn't tou...
