Intelligent design is how the universe originated

DopeFreshSaaan

Dear opponent: First of all, I would like to thank you for accepting this challenge. I believe that the bible, the word of god is the ultimate truth, and the accounts in Genesis explain how the earth and the universe came into existence. I believe that God created the earth in six, twenty-four hour days, about six- thousand years ago. I expect that we will both not go into origin, or we will stay away from it as much as possible. My reasoning for this is that in order for a theory to become sc...

Transgender does not exist

SirFluffySheep

Definition of Gender provided by Merriam Webster's Dictionary: "a : sex b : the behavioral, cultural, or psychological traits typically associated with one sex" If it does exist- it is the product of gender identity disorder- a mental illness. My argument is that one cannot classify themselves as a concept- gender is assigned by society and culture *not* science. For example, how a woman behaved in ancient Italy versus ancient Japan will be drastically different.The reason behind their ac...

Science cannot Sufficiently Explain the Origins of the Universe

JimiNingrix
JordanCJKM

First off I would like to go into clarification on my argument. I believe that science cannot explain the origins of the universe for a variety of reasons. In this debate, con will be trying to justify the existence of the universe through the current laws of science. This is a hard science debate. Religious views from either side have no bearing. Secondly, the burden of proof will be shared. I (Pro) will be attempting to prove that science cannot explain the origins of the universe...

great white shark would beat an orca

I think a great white shark would win because if the orca ran away the great white shark would follow it and kill it. If the orca attacked then the great white shark would just bite it to death...

Global Warming is Man-Made

16kadams
RoyLatham

==Clarification== I will be arguing that mankind IS the cause of global warming, my opponent will be arguing that mankind is NOT the main driver of modern climate change. My opponent, therefore, is arguing that the theory of anthropogenic climate change is incorrect. This is pretty straightforward. Abbreviations which might be used: AGW -- Anthropogenic global warming CR -- cosmic ray[s] TSI -- Total solar irradiation MWP -- Medieval Warm Period SSN -- Sun spot number PDO --...
