Is American football better than English football?

in english football you don't have to stop every 2 minutes and then take another minute to set up your team again. Also, it is not even football, it is much more like rugby, so they have even got the name wrong!...

Psilocybin ("magic") mushrooms should be legal in the United States.

Danielle

Here's one for the Conservatives ;) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Thomas Jefferson once said, "If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Today, the manufacturing, buying, posession and distribution of psilocybin mushrooms is illegal in all but 2 states: Florida and New Mexico. I support the legalization of thi...

I am in favor of there being search and siezures in students back packs and lockers. Too many students these day are bringing uncalled for things to school such as, guns, drugs, energy drinks, and fireworks....

There is no way to make voting on this site fair.

Danielle

So my opponent and I were talking about this 5 minutes ago and I decided to challenge her to a debate about it. My argument is that voting on this site will never be fair and therefore there is a hardly a point to keep track of win ratios or number of votes or anything like that. #1 People will too often vote based on the resolution alone and not read the actual debate #2 People will down-vote other people that they don't like or don't agree with on the site #3 People will make mu...

Topic #29: Plea Bargaining should be Banned. (Attempt 2)

Darth_Grievous_42
PublicForumG-d

Topic 29 of Round 2. Darth_Grievous_42 vs PublicForumG-d. To be judged by usernames Evan_MacIan, shaqdaddy34, and dmill2010. As Pro, I will be defending that Plea Bargaining should be banned, thus the polar opposite of my stance that PublicForumG-d will have to defend is that Plea Bargaining should NOT be banned. As I am not well versed in foreign court procedures, I will be arguing from an American Perspective. If my opponent wishes to bring up worldwide cases he is more than welcome to do so,...

Atheism is a belief

PublicForumG-d

I read your debate on "whether or not atheism exists". I thought it was a horrible blow out, in your favor. :) That said, I disagree with your position of atheism as not a faith. Atheism may not be an organized religion, but it is definately a faith. Atheism is "1) the doctrine or belief that there is no God 2) a lack of belief in the existence of God or gods " note: **Belief** that there is no God. My sole contention rests on the fact that it is impossible to prove a ne...

War memorials do more harm than good.

Danielle

Greetings to my opponent and welcome to Round 2 -- Good luck! For the purpose of this debate, a war memorial will be defined as a building, monument, statue or other edifice to celebrate a war or victory, or (predominating in modern times) to commemorate those who died or were injured in war (Source: Wikipedia). If my opponent disagrees with the definition, I ask that he provide another relavent to the resolution as soon as possible. So without further ado (or is it adieu?), let's begin!...

Water Boarding is indeed torture.

PublicForumG-d

I will assume that my opponet has not been water-boarded by the U.S. Military. I can say honestly that I have never been water-boarded. With that being said my opponet and I cannot use personal accounts on this issue. To determine if Water-Boarding is torture, I present two things to ponder. 1: The history of Water-boarding During World War II, Japanese troops, especially the Kempeitai, as well as the Gestapo, the German secret police, used waterboarding as a method of torture. During th...

The Bible Teaches Total Depravity

PublicForumG-d

I saw this topic already, and was dissapointed that I could not take the challenge, as it was already filled. So, I'd like to challenge Renzzy to a match under the same topic. In fairness to him, I have not read his arguments on the other version of this topic, so he can pretty much repost. My points are 1) Scripture gives priority to love and peace. 2) Men twist, corrupt, or badly carry out the Scripture. This is not, however, the fault of the Scripture in any way. 3) Logistica...
