Evolution is both a scientific theory and a fact!

chewster911

This debate is impossible to accept, and it probably will be until 2015. If you somehow find a way to accept this debate without permission or in 2014, you automatically lose. I will be constantly updating it to extend the time before it expires. Comment or PM me if you want to debate.Of course, by the title and my position you can tell that I will be arguing that evolution is a fact. I still keep seeing evolution denialists on the internet crafting arguments and cases...

I Propose A More Logical Theoretical Cosmological Model Of The Macro Universe

Pywakit
Kirraz

The search for viable, reasonable, and logical solutions to the problems inherent in the Standard Cosmological Model (Big Bang, Lamda Cold Dark Matter with Inflation) has spawned a menagerie of theories over the last half a century. While mathematically supported, they are all fantastically implausible theories. And as of a year ago, in serious trouble as the strong ones all relied on SUSY. In just the last several years, a number of astronomical observa...

Resolved: The Theory of Evolution is Consistent with Scientific Evidence.

Raistlin
Oceanus

The Bible, or for that matter any Holy Book, is not valid evidence in this debate. Only scientific evidence may be used by either side. Note that I am not rejecting the Bible as a person but rather limiting the debate to a scientific one. Let's define a very important term. Theory of Evolution- The scientific theory that states current organisms descended from ancient ones with modification by means of natural selection and mutation, and that all life descended from a common ancestor....

Global Warming

Mythguy

Global Warming Imagine a nice day, 70 degrees, scattered clouds, maybe the wind is gently blowing, maybe there are some flowers nearby. That is winter on an Earth suffering from global warming. Now, go to summer: Imagine a desert, a sweltering 130 degrees, dry dust and sand everywhere. Hot, dry winds choking a parched landscape. It rarely rain, but when it does, imagine taking a drink of water, swallowing a little bit, and then being forced to spit the rest of it out. It is only enough to just...
