The Death Penalty--With a Twist!

kbub

PrefaceI thank Kbub for agreeing to debate me on this! I think it is an interesting take on the Death Penalty debate, in that it seeks to evaluate the philosophy behind it, rather than becoming muddled in the practical concerns of its implementation. I would ask, however, that all arguments be topical to the resolution, and that we stick to the issue at hand (i.e. no Kritiks, theory, etc.). I ask this only because I am genuinely interested in debatin...

The United States should build and maintain a border fence

RoyLatham
kbub

A border fence is one of the possible mechanisms used to control immigration and the flow of goods over U.S. borders. In this debate I will contend that existing border fences on the southern border should maintained and upgraded, and that at least a new 700 mile fence should be built .I do not require that a border fence...

Greetings, salutations, and welcome back to the DDOlympics! In this debate, both my opponent and myself will start and complete a story in each round. Essentially, we are writing flash-stories! Following Round 1, each of us will write 2 flash-stories with 8,000 characters each. Please refrain from voting unless you are a judge for the DDO Storytelling Olympics! Both stories (so a total of four - 2 from each debater) should factor into the judges' decision. This first round is for acc...

The practice of humans' purchasing and then eating meat is unethical (Copy #2)

kbub
EndarkenedRationalist

Greetings! I hope to engage in a debate about whether buying meat and then eating that meat is unethical. I wish this debate to include primarily arguments surrounding veganism/vegetarianism, so I have given definitions in order that we might focus on "generic" meat-eating cases. This debate is only open to persons who have equal or higher ranking than me. Sorry! 1. Pro must defend that the general practice of purchasing and then eating meat (but not necessarily every example) is unethical...

Unstable Creation of the Universe is as reasonable a theory as Theistic Creation

Bannanawamajama
kbub

Hello all, I'm making a debate on the potential validity of the universe starting purely by phenomenon of physics rather than due to intervention by the diety of your choosing. This is not a debate against the possibility of a God, only that a non-theistic approach is no less reasonable from a standpoint of intuitive understanding. Since it's difficult to offer quantitative data supporting or refuting any kind of God-induced creation due to that being a non-repeatable event, I won't necessari...
