Nuclear decay rates are not constant

Abeceda

We have only known about radioactivity for a relatively short amount of time, but regardless, we seem to insist that the decay rates of elements are constant beyond a shadow of a doubt, under any circumstances. For example, the half life of polonium-218 will always remain 3.05 minutes, no matter the circumstances surrounding the element (f.ex., atmospheric pressure, temperature, magnetic field intensity). I am here to say that this doctrine of constancy is demonstrably false, and I will provi...

Flat Earth

Capitalistslave
Edlvsjd

I will be challenging, perhaps, one of the better known proponents of the flat earth theory from DDO: Edlvsjd. NOTE TO EDLVSJD: rule one is changed to a different rule, since I am, instead, using a google doc for argument 1. As you wanted(I think) I am posting my first arguments in round 1. Rules of debate 1) Google Docs are not a violation of conduct, but character limit is still 10,000, so that voters don't have a book to read. 2) The last two rounds should be used for rebuttals against...

Theory of evolution is valid

Spud
xxmanguyxx

I'm bored so starting a debate on this topic. Basically, if you are of the opinion that "macroevolution" is not feasible, then this is the debate for you. Evolution is defined as the change of allele frequencies over successive generations, and the subsequent diversification of life due to various factors. If you want to make a case for a different definition for evolution, go for it, but know that if you use "kinds" to classify populations of organisms in your definition of evolution, I w...

Should animals be used for Scientific Experiments?

aliros619
fishhunter61

Animals should not be used for Scientific experiments my first reason is: Reason 1: Animal species become endangered due to death in testing. Animal become endangered mostly because of mass deaths. Animal testing can cause those mass deaths. The act of animal testing kills millions of defenseless animals a year, causing endangerment or even extinction among a wide variety of species. For example lets take chimpanzees. Wild chimpanzees have been and still are protected by the law since 1990, b...

Nuclear Power

bsh1

IntroThis debate is currently impossible to accept. Please let me know if you're interested. If you accept without my express written permission, you automatically forfeit the debate and empower me to have Max reset it to its original condition.This was an old LD resolution, and it's on an issue of increasing relevance as the industrialized world slowly moves to a post-carbon fuel society. It should be an interesting topic for debate and discussion.<...
