Human life begins at conception (sperm meets egg)

JimShady
TheMarketLibertarian

A debate on whether human life begins at conception or not. I will be arguing that it does, and the Con will be argue that human life begins at some other point, you can pick. Burden of Proof will be on me especially. Con doesn't necessarily have to prove human life begins at his proposed point, but it would only help his case. I want the format to go like this: Round 1: Acceptance, and please state when life begins (or if you are undecided) Round 2: Arguments. Round 3: Additional ar...

There is no evidence that humans share a common ancestor with apes

Abeceda
IBeatMyMeats

My position is that there is not one piece of evidence in support of the idea that humans share a common ancestor with apes - that can not be interpreted in another way. To clarify my position even further, I shall provide an example. Homology, which is considered evidence of such common ancestry, might equally be evidence of common factory (i.e. that the similarities are not due to a shared ancestor, but a shared maker). If you disagree with this, and believe that you have definitive evid...
