Gun rights

I commissioned this challenge after reading my opponent's stance on gun rights. His opinion is simply based on facts that are just not true. I ask any following this debate to just check it out on their own. Gun crime is higher with more gun control. In major cities of America that have more gun control, there is more crime. [1] Chicago has some extreme gun control, against both open carry and concealed carry, and yet it ranks at the top in gun crime. Countries that have more gun control...

Christianity Is Intrinsically Harmful- Another Attempt

I intend to attempt debating this topic again (as no real clash has occurred yet). Hopefully, because it is the Christmas holidays for many students, time will be more readily available so that this debate can receive proper attention. Greetings. Although the topic of religion is nothing new to the debate community, I would like to propose this topic that does not focus on whether or not the Christian belief is one based upon fact. Faith is necessary for religious belief and cannot be revoke...

Euthanasia should be banned.

I quote the Hippocratic oath (400 BC); the oath necessary for physicians and doctors to consent to to follow their profession: ""I shall give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest any such counsel [...] I shall try to preserve life to the best of my ability." Since Euthanasia is legal in some parts of the world, it massacres this oath, and the doctor-patient relationship. I quote Canada"s Criminal code: "241. Anyone who counsels a person [...] or aids [...] a person to commit s...

Gay Marriage should be legal in all states

I believe that Gay Marriage should be legal in all states for many reasons, the first of which is because the constitution says that all people have the right to the pursuit of happiness. This isn't my main argument for saying Gay Marriage should be legal, but it is for the way I worded the question. A few rules before we begin: 1. No Religious texts can be quoted 2. Religion cannot be used to justify an argument (adding on to rule 1) 3. I am tired of the "because marriage is between a man...

Should Stores Be Open On Thanskgiving

I do not think stores should be open on Thanksgiving because Thanksgiving is the day to be thankful of what you have and not what you can get for a cheap deal at a store. Some people don't have anyone to spend it with or the people they spend it with they hardly see so they cherish those moments....

Should gay marriage be legalized everywhere?

Gay marriage is not something that should be considered weird or gross or "sinful." It is a person's right to marry whomever they choose. Society should have no say in whether a man can marry a man. It's not a disease or a "sin" to be gay. People are born that way, there is literally nothing they can do to change it. All being "gay" means is that someone finds a person of the same sex attractive. There is absolutely nothing wrong or gross about that. People don't choose who they love. Being gay...

Christianity Is Intrinsically Harmful

Ajabi

Greetings. Although the topic of religion is nothing new to the debate community, I would like to propose this topic that does not focus on whether or not the Christian belief is one based upon fact. Faith is necessary for religious belief and cannot be revoked ultimately, for faith does not claim basis in reason. It is, rather, an absence thereof. However, this debate will address whether Christianity is intrinsically harmful or not, regardless of its factual validity. Definitions: 1. Ch...

An Anarchist State

aburk903
sengejuri

Greetings! I'd like to begin by clarifying that this debate will be purely philosophical. For this reason, judges will not consider sources. This debate is one of ideology and theory, not of statistics. Although I reserve this first round for acceptance, I will offer some definitions so this debate will not be accepted under any misunderstanding. I will define anarchism and anarchy using Chaz Bufe's proposed definitions in his pamphlet "Listen Anarchist!" ANARCHISM: The philosophy of a new so...
