Abortion

Abortion should be illegal. If a woman is running around having unprotected sex with either one guy or multiple partners, that woman and that man should take full responsibilities for what precautions they did not take. Imagine ripping a life out of the woman's womb. The baby is innocent and had nothing to do with you and your partners carelessness so why punish it? For example say this woman is trying to relieve some stress and goes out with her girls to a party. Relieving some of this tension...

The existence of God, or an omnipotent being is probable.

There is substantial amount of evidence that a omnipotent being must exist, completely disproving Atheism, although not disproving the beliefs shared by agnostics....

Since I will be Con (It doesn't serve a higher purpose) I will allow my opponent to make the first argument and include definitions. Thank You in advance to the opponent who accepts my topic....

Christianity is an Irrational Religion

TheLaw
sherlockmethod

I was inspired to start a debate on this subject after looking at a topic in the forums that had some of this in it. I strongly stand in opposition to this topic and am willing to debate anyone on this matter. A definition for irrational would be "a. Not endowed with reason. b. Affected by loss of usual or normal mental clarity; incoherent, as from shock. c. Marked by a lack of accord with reason or sound judgment".[1] I believe that the first definition is the most appropriate for this topi...

George W. Bush should have won Bush v. Gore

On January 20th, 2000, a man was sworn in as president of the United States of America. This man lost the popular vote fair and square. He also would have lost Florida if all of the counties had counted their votes consistently with their standard [1]. The Florida supreme court even called for a recount. By a series of political maneuvers, however, this issue made it into the supreme court. Issues like this are not supposed to go to the supreme court, as they are state law [2]. Somehow, this wen...

Infanticide should be legal in the United States.

Freeman
sherlockmethod

The United States should allow the use of infanticide in the case of infants with severe medical complications. This policy should be adopted because euthanizing infants in some scenarios can be a valid moral option since certain infants can be born with absolutely terrible life prospects. For example, there are a number of instances where infants can have terminal ailments that cause them to suffer immensely after birth before killing them shortly thereafter. In these situations, infanticide sh...

It is most rational to believe there is a 'Bigfoot'

Marauder
sherlockmethod

This debate is over belief in the Sasquatch. I, Pro, will be arguing you should believe he exist at least within times as recent as European settlement. recent enough to ensure we are talking about its existence overlapping that of homosapiens. Not recent as in 40 thousand years ago. whoever accepts, Con, will be arguing against belief in Sasquatch existing in any such recent times. I thank whoever accepts this debate in advance I will now proceed with my case It is not in question if Bi...

Universal Health care

Should the Government Provide Free Universal Health Care for All Americans? There isn't a single government agency or division that runs efficiently; do we really want an organization that developed the U.S. Tax Code handling something as complex as health care? Quick, try to think of one government office that runs efficiently. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? The Department of Transportation? Social Security Administration? Department of Education? There isn't a single government office that squ...
