Routine Infant Male Circumcision

lovelife
Ore_Ele

The first round should be defining the debate, so the rest of the debate will run smoothly. The debate will be on whether or not parents should be allowed to choose to circumcise their male infant. This is about routine procedure, and not about potential threats that may devolop later. This is not a debate on whether circumcision help prevent HIV, infections, or anything else, except the immediate threat. Keep in mind this debate is about routine circumcision, and not abou...

Smokers' Rights

lovelife
InsertNameHere

There should be no law against smoking while walking down the street or in ones vehicle/home, or in some/most places. Unless marked as a non smoking place people should be allowed to smoke there. If a place is marked non smoking and one smokes there then there should be three steps to get them to stop before police notification. 1) Politely remind them of the rules of the place. 2) Make a public announcement/reminder that smoking is not permitted. 3) Politely ask them to leave. If th...

Animal Testing (Joke Debate)

lovelife
I-am-a-panda

This debate is for fun no arguments should be taken too seriously to show my actual stance. I just thought it would be fun. Animal testing is a necessary evil, or is it? We need medications to be tested, animals are not the same as humans, but how can we find any other way to test? Science hasn't gotten to a point where we can use computer software yet, and we need to find cures. Someone has to die choose monkeys or humans? But how about we save the monkeys, and help with the standard of l...

Gay marriage

lovelife
Korashk

My position is that gays deserve the same rights as everyone else. If you are able to marry your girlfriend, why would you want a lesbian marrying her girlfriend? Through the years gays have been fighting for equality and acceptance. The thought that civil unions are the same thing as marriage is wrong. If a heterosexual couple has a right to choose which, why should a homosexual couple not have the same right? Gay marriage does not affect anyone not wanting to be a part of it, so basicall...

Minimum Wage

zchryhll
lovelife

Artificially high wage rates lead to a misallocation of resources and market failure. More people will be encouraged to work, but fewer will be demanded by companies seeking to minimise costs. Such distortions lead to an uncompetitive inflexible market that does nothing to solve problems of skills mismatched. Once salaries are increased, companies will withdraw production from such markets and there will be no income at all. The case of Asia over the past fifty years shows that initially poorly...

The Cat deities are better than the Bunny deities

lovelife
ruelariat

The Cat Goddess is better than the Bunny Goddess, because the Cat goddess symbolizes life. Without her nothing could live. The Bunny Goddess is just that of reproduction. Without life you cannot reproduce. The Cat God is of Death while the Bunny God is of fertility. Just looking at humans theres too many, fertility is not really wanted by most humans. Most use things to hinder their fertility, and even kill the unborn. It's safe to say that fertility isn't wanted as much anymore, and wont be...
