    Dr. Assisted Suicide Should Be Legal

    It is a personal choice and I believe that everyone has the right to decide whether they want to continue or not. Of course I am speaking of people who are not "mentally challenged" (as diagonsed by a tru professional).   Who are we to decide that they are to live...

    I am one in a select few,

    who will admit to being extremely under educated and yet, I still like to debate and discuss just about any topic. As long as all parties can retain themselves from going ape-**** if someone doesn't understand something fully or whatever, its all fun and games.

    I speak my mind about a topic

    or statement that I feel was falsely put out. Most people have a problem with it, but I say What the hell, might as well. Am I right? I mean why bottle your opinion to make someone else feel better? That's just cowardish in my opinion. If I think you're wrong, I'll say I...

    Basically if I hold knowledge within on a

    subject, I have to get it off my chest eventually. I feel like this is a good trait to have in teachers, but I don't want to teach. I want the world as a whole to know this specific fact that I have been pondering for the past 2 months. This, debating, is how I relieve myself of...

    Only The Strong

    I enjoy a good debate because I care if my beliefs are built on solid logic and as such, I want them challenged in order to see if my opponents are able to recognize faulty reasoning or other chinks in my armor regarding my world views. Debate is what set me on the path to...

    I find it humorous when adults try to 'bite

    their tongue around youth' specifically teens. I promise anything you dare to say around we've already heard and have probably said it ourselves. Not that we're all necessarily bad, just this is our generation and by the second grade you'll know the meaning of all those cuss...

    Debates are awesome. They open or,

    sadly sometimes, close minds. Spread new ideas. And make you think critically. I want to try to start one. I'm an atheist and think that all religion is a useless in every way.

    Lets Debate, Not Argue

    Does anyone else find that this seems to be very hard for most people? Many of the people around me are totaly incapable of having a reasonable discussion about anything more controversial than the weather.

    I have strong opinions on things,

    but I tend not to debate them unless I know enough about them. So instead, if I have a differing opinion, I'll present it in the form of questions to probe for more information. This way it is not combative, and allows people to be more open to an idea that conflicts with their...

    The grandfather paradox.

    .......i think it's impossible. My mum says: he could do it once, but never again. I think he couldn't do it at all, considering if his grandfather was dead, he would never have even come into existence, therefore, he can't kill his grandfather, it's entirely impossible, because...

    Ok, So If I Willingly Share My Wife With Other Men Is This Cheating?

    I believe if you (the spouse) are willing to share your spouse with another that they are not cheating on you. Cheating is a state of mind---any thoughts?

    I've grown fond of discussing all types of

    topics. Great debates are not filled with anger or defensiveness. It combines listening with an open mind as you discuss you ideas. It's not judgement or rejection for disagreeing. Even if you leave still unconvinced, the conversation was enjoyable because you were challenged...

    Discussion Is the Best Form of Learning

    I really like to debate. To discuss with someone about something either of us holds dear, or to use it as a learning opportunity if I really don't understand the allure of a certain position. Value debate is fun as long as you don't get bogged down in real world examples...

    Hello Fellow Debaters!

    I love to debate. I am part of our school's debate circle. I feel that I'm myself when I debate with others. And most importantly it helps and trains my self confidence. Yet there are new members. And they are most likely to be very judgmental. So can anyone give me some...

    I actually love it. I'm captain of debate team

    at my school. It's fun to debate random topics and just be given one, because if I don't agree with it, it makes it more challenging, and I like challenge. It also gives the debate less a chance of being biased. But anyways, if you guys have a topic, I'd be happy to debate down...

    I've always been like that.

    I find enjoyment out of debating, and even won all my debates during classes back in high school. My family are no where near debaters though.. I don't know where I get it from. Probably from my dads side.
