This is barely debatable at all, and I really don't see how we won't have to both forfeit a round at some point....

The finitude of the past of the universe does not necessitate that the universe came into being

Rational_Thinker9119
Chrysippus

Many people believe that if the universe has a finite past, that that means it must have came into being. However, I believe this is a mistake. The burden of proof will be shared... I will argue that even if the universe has a finite past, that doesn't mean it came into being. My opponent will argue that the finitude of the past does necessitate that it came into being. The first round is just for acceptance......

The Earth is hollow.

Chrysippus
Nur-Ab-Sal

This is in response to this thread: http://www.debate.org/forums/science/topic/21157/ A brief explanation of the subject can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollow_Earth Hollow in this case does not refer to the fact that there are caves and mines in the outer part of the crust, but to an alleged vast central space inside making up a significant fraction of the Earth's total volume. I will be arguing that the earth, in fact, is not hollow to any significant degree. My oppone...

People cannot have knowledge of the supernatural

Oryus
Chrysippus

Hello, this would be my first debate so I'm still a little fuzzy on the formalities. I apologize in advance for any mistakes. I'm using the definition of knowledge in the philosophical sense.
