Marijuana should be de-criminalized for a few reasons, There is not one case in history that recorded a death due to only cannabis use, not one! Compared to the hundreds of thousands that die due to tobacco and alcohol!...

God is real

Alright, I'd like to do this debate with someone. I'll try and be concise, and answer any other questions in the comments section. The debate says 5 rounds long, but in reality it is 4. This is for a) extra round if needed and b) so that the pro can make his argument first. The burden of proof is entirely on the affirmer. God - The Judeo Christian God with the qualities of: omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, transcendent, immanent, personal, anthropomorphic, etc. is - verb, from "to be"....

Marijuana is safer than alcohol.

I am arguing on behalf of the motion that marijuana is safer than alcohol, I am looking forward to a challenge. I believe that marijuana is safer than alcohol, my first fact I want to get on is the annual American death rate from drugs. Tobacco leading with 400,000 deaths Alcohol second with 100,000 deaths All legal drugs 20,000 All illegal drugs 15,000 caffeine killed 2,000 Aspirin 500 Next we have marijuana, there has never been 1 death from pot. Alcohol is one of the most toxic...

Glee is a good show

I am a Gleek, and I'm not afraid to admit it. Just look at my avatar. I've heard some people say that Glee is a bad show and it butchers good songs, but in my opinion it brings back old songs like a tribute to them, and I believe most artists should be proud that it has been brought back and introduced to this generation, and not the crappy pop like that Ke$ha girl or such....

A Corporation can be "too big to fail"

darkkermit
bluesteel

One of the many criticism of expanding corporation and businesses is that they can become "too big to fail", or in other words, that If a large corporation becomes bankrupt it will create a massive economic catastrophe. I will argue that a corporation cannot become "too big to fail". The first round will be for clarifications of definitions and introduction. Debating will begin in Round 2....

Battlefield 3 is better than MW3

themedianerd
DeadLeaves93

I think battlefield 3 is better than Modern Warfare 3 because of one little word, "Realism". Infinity ward prides it's self on making "realistic shooters". but in what universe can you survive two barret fifty cal bullets to the head? whereas in battlefield if you die, it can be two things, one you glitched, or two you would have actually died if you pulled that off in real life. so now i would love to see the counter argument. who will step up and defend infinity ward?...
