This is a non-religious debate, though I will reference the flood myths of various cultures, for reasons I will state later. Please leave your beliefs (or lack of beliefs) at the door. Round one is acceptance. Round two is opening. Round three is rebuttal. Round four is conclusion. Round five is sources. Definitions: Ancient: predating the Egyptians Modern: having technology thought to be from a later period....

The last debate I had on this topic did not go as planned, so I'd like to do it again with a different opponent, preferably one that provide sufficient argument. This premise of this debate is that eggs laid by hens should be eaten by humans, I will be taking the CON position. Feel free to argue on any basis, good luck....

To start with my First Pillar: It is Time Consuming. Homework should be abolished because students will just ponder this 6 hours a day 5 days a week 10 months a year every year till they get a job is that not enough there's a difference between giving work because it's not done but just popping up and saying here do this worksheet even though you already talked about this for 6 hours if they have all their work done let them be free not having to sit down doing more work they already had 6 hou...

Exams are not really helpful....

debate-master1

I believe that exams do not help you at all... they are just for discriminating people... One may not be good in history or science or maths but instead is fantastic at public relations or organizing events or maybe sports.....still this person has to study subjects which he might not need for the rest of his life ...Students study just to pass in their exams, thus it is soon forgotten that education is for development of mankind. Examinations have transformed education into a rat-race where...

Pro and Con will write stories using a word Con or Pro choose. For example it's Pro's turn to write so I tell him to use the word claustrophobia. He then has to use it more than once. The words must be English words. The one who followed the rules , didn't forfeit and wrote the better stories win. Ready? First round is writing. The word is Xenophobes....
