Full Resolution: Which model creation or evolution can better account for the variety in species we see today. Now that I have the time to do this debate I'll reinstate it. Notice that this debate is impossible to accept and if you find a way to accept then you forfeit. Comment below if you are interested. Arguments must be kept biological. If not, then the side must justify using the argument by explaining why it is relevant to the resolution. Creationism - the doctrine that matter and...

Evolution is a Plausible Scientific Theory

Hello all. This is a debate on the truth in evolution; whether or not evolution is a plausible scientific theory. I think evolution is clearly plausible, as it is supported by a wide range of evidence, however some deny this and claim that evolution is false. My opponent will argue against the plausibleness of evolutionary theory.--------------------FormatRound 1: AcceptanceR...

Good day ladies and gentle men, I am debating on the topic "Earth will not remain Habitable forever" and anyone that accept this challenge should prove to me How and why Earth will forever be Habitable. However, before going further I would like to define major subject in my debate topic. "The Earth is the third planet from the Sun and it is the only planet known to have life on it. The Earth formed around 4.5 billion years ago. It is one of four rocky planets on the inside of the Sola...

Evolution Has No Supporting Proof, Only Evidence Against It.

This is my first debate. I understand that the first round is acceptance. So let me give some definitions Normally, people don't realize that evolution can be divided into two: Micro-evolution and Macro-evolution. ALL experiments Darwin did were all for microevolution. He never touch macroevolution, only assumed it. So this debate will be focused on the only type of evolution that has controversy surrounding it: Macroevolution. I accept that Micro.evolution is a well known fact, but my...

Carcharodontosaurs were the most powerful dinosaurs

The Carcharodontosaurs were more than likely the most powerful dinosaurs to ever exist. While they did go extinct before the reign of the Tyrannosaurs, they still had the opportunity to show how powerful they were. They ruled the entire world in their different species being able to hunt even the largest sauropods to ever exist....

Religion needs to go away, it is outdated.

Emilrose

Religion was a way to explain life and things happening in and around it, before Science. However, now because of Science Religion is no longer needed. It fails in every aspect of giving answers on just about every thing. It makes smart people into beings that choose not to think for themselves and set all rational idea aside for a hand me down belief.....

Global Warming is Man-Made

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 --...
