Reparations for African Americans

Todopoderoso

I have heard and read many arguments against reparations for Black Americans and have found all arguments to be unfounded and a lack of knowledge of both history and social science by people making arguments against reparations. Is there anyone who can make a good argument against reparations?...

This may also include ideas about voting rights, immigration and citizenship. - include thoughts on Capital punishment, work gangs, sentencing recommendations, parole and support after release. If you don't want to take this debate, I'll open it to the public, but I really liked your debate question. 1. Round 1 is for presentation o...

prostitution is an agreement between consenting adultsProstitution is sex in exchange for money. One party is willing to pay money to have sex. The other party is willing to receive money for sex. If both parties adults, government should not take away their freedom to engage in the exchange. Of course, child prostitution and forced prostitution should remain illegal.legalization makes prostitution safer

Based on the available evidence, God probably doesn't exist.

gordonjames

I've never done a debate before, so forgive me if I don't follow standard protocol. It is my opinion that God doesn't exist. Science currently explains most natural phenomena, and the uncertain stuff is because we haven't found the answers yet. Non-believers are capable of moral behavior, so God obviously isn't required for that. And we are yet to see a genuine miracle occur. There is no evidence or need for God's existence. I'm not fussy about who my opponent is, but please use proper gra...
