The quantum fluctuations arguement dissproves the existence of God.


Whenever a theist puts forth the question "how does something come from nothing?", atheists have a very scientific and seemingly full proof answer of quantum fluctuations. 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...

The city of Chicago being visible from the opposite shore, proves the earth is not a sphere.


One of Edlvsjd core arguments made in support of Flat earth (and against a spherical earth) is that the City of Chicago is visible from the opposite shore of Lake Michigan, something he states is not possible on a spherical earth, and effectively demonstrates that the earth is flat. This debate is Edlvsjd's opportunity to argue that this is the case. Rules: - As Edlvsjd is going to be supporting his claim, his FIRST round should be used for opening arguments; Edlvsjd should write "Last...

space is an intangetable reality


One of the first people to embrace Einstein's ideas was his former teacher, Hermann Minkowski (1864-1909). He realized that although different observers experience the same events, they will describe them differently because they disagree about the nature of space and the nature of time. On the other hand space and time taken together form a more robust entity: 'Henceforth space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will...
