Man is not responsible for the recent warming trends

epidexipteryx
MysteriumRevelatum

Outline: R1: Acceptance R2: Arguments (no rebuttals) R3: Rebuttals (no new arguments, you can strengthen your argument) I am debating that man is not the cause of recent significant warming. I am not arguing that the world isn't warming. Also, please don't cite any consensus or use the argument that "97% of scientists agree" because I don't care what other scientists think. This is a debate between you and me, not me and the random scientist you are citing. If you have any questions...

The Earth is spherical and the Flat Earth hypothesis is false

Zaephou
humperdink

It is a widely accepted fact that the Earth, and all planetary objects are spherical (even though they may not be perfect spheres), and yet Flat Earth believers insist that the Earth is a flat cuboid travelling through space with a Sun and moon with a diameter of 32 km above it and provides absolutely no evidence for their ridiculous claims while disregarding the countless amounts of evidence we have for a spherical Earth as government lies. Flat Earth believers simply reject evidence such as...

Man Made Climate Change Is Fake

epidexipteryx
pianodude2468

Please stick to only the man-made part of this argument. I am not denying the world is heating or any possible effects of that. I am saying that man does not cause it. Also, quoting a consensus is NOT science. I want to hear your argument, not some random scientists. Science is based off of hard facts and evidence to support claims, not a consensus of random scientists whether they studied climate or not. Here are my reasons: 1.There is NO way to test whether Co2 is the most contributing...

Human cloning should not be banned

fabvanshita
Gwendelphine

The creation of genetically identical copies of human, given the term Human Cloning, is generally used to refer to the reproduction of human cells and tissues artificially. It is a possibility that seems more viable now than it had been a few years ago. It has the potential to save lives and make a better quality of living for our future generations. Practiced on livestock for a while now, the process of human cloning has seen incredible results. The techniques have been proven to work and w...

Black-Jesus
Edlvsjd

Recently I've come across a lot of flat-Earthers for some reason on the internet recently. The burden of proof is on both parties as I set up the debate so that both parties are making an affirmative claim. Pro is spherical Earth model, which is me, and Con is flat Earth model, my opponent.FOUR ROUNDS:1st Round: Acceptance/Opening statements2nd Round: Opening arguments3rd Round: Rebuttals/More arguments4th Round: More rebuttals/Closing statements...
