The problem of Slytherin

thett3
tulle

Resolved: The portrayal of Slytherin House in the Harry Potter books, on balance, detracts from the series as a whole. For the purposes of the debate, only information contained in the original series (not Pottermore or the movies) is canon. I am affirming. The first round is for acceptance, second for constructives, and third and fourth for rebuttals. No new arguments in the last round. I look forward to the debate!...

It is probable that God exists

GorefordMaximillion

As the affirmative, I will accept the burden of proof in proving the existence of God. My opponent can present his own arguments if he pleases, but he is under no obligation to do so. He is obligated however to attack my arguments in the 2nd round. My advocacy will be defending the conception of God as the powerful, sentient creator of the Universe, by showing that both scientifically and philosophically it is more probable that the Universe was created by God than that it arose naturally. If my...

Conservatism and Libertarianism

thett3
FourTrouble

Resolved: Conservatism and Libertarianism are ideological allies. I am Affirming. The burden of proof is shared, my opponent needs to show that on balance, the goals of Libertarianism and Conservatism are too far apart to be treated as actual allies. What exactly defines a Libertarian and Conservative will be a point of contention between my opponent and myself, but my opponent acknowledges upon accepting that the definitions need to be within reason.

The United States should conquer Africa

BlackVoid

Blackvoid and I agreed to have this debate over Christmas break. I understand that he's currently busy, but I figured it better to send the challenge sooner rather than later, to better answer any questions. Specifications on the exact meaning of "conquer" and "Africa" will be elaborated on in the next round (don't worry, I'm not going to pull any semantic tricks.) Debaters are permitted to make a seperate debate to place their citations in, to save characters.A...

F-16_Fighting_Falcon

This is a joke debate, to see who can come up with the worst/funniest arguments for/against God. God for this debate is defined as the supreme being who you must believe in or else you'll go to hell. Ad hom attacks are permitted and encouraged. First round is for acceptance. If you use the first round for anything other than acceptance God will kill you and you're going to hell....
