Race is a Poor Indicator for Differences Between Humans

kylet357
NDECD1441

I am starting this debate as another one I took part in with a similar subject didn't continue past my acceptance of the debate. I'm going to explain my position(s): -I am of the opinion that race is poorly defined in general, and does not hold any scientific weight. The slight variations in skin colour and any other physical properties does not warrant any reason to separate these so-called 'races' of humanity, and this goes two-fold for those that hold these races to be separate species of hu...

God does not exist.

MagicAintReal

A DDO error caused the previous debate to be unintentionally forfeited, so this is the continuation of that debate. Previously, I opened the debate to multiple topics, the opponent chose the one currently set as the topic, he presented some definitions, then made brief clarifications regarding burdens. Finally, I submitted my arguments and the system error occurred. The debate can be found here. [http://www.debate.org/debates/Challenger-Chooses/1/] I'll repost my arguments here, then the deba...

Quantum fluctuations are "random fluctuations can produce matter and energy out of nothingness." [1] This is a source used from the seemingly atheist person I am debating. The article says that because of these quantum fluctuations, the universe/big bang can produce itself without need of a God. The article states "The Big...
