Math Debate #1

RevL8ion
stylishBOY

The title's pretty self-explanatory. Because I'm a whole lot better at mathematics than debating, and there's really nothing math-related here, I'd like to start perhaps the first math debate in all of DDO. Here are the rules.Oh wait, first, I'd like to tell you to do something: Hold your tongue with your fingers and say "I like to math debate." If you know what I mean...anyway:The first round is always acceptance only...

Is Evolution true?

I accept this debate. If you've accepted it, write an argument saying so, then we can move to round 2 and we can actually start debating. On round 5, we will say our final argument and then a goodbye....

Should Animals Be Used for Scientific or Commercial Testing?

Animalana
a_mysterious_stranger

Animal testing should not be used. For one, scientists still test it on humans anyways. Two, animals have a different anatomy when compared to humans, causing their result to be different from that of a human. Animal testing is cruelty to animals, yet scientists get away with it. The Animal Welfare Act allows animals to be burned, shocked, poisoned, isolated, starved, forcibly restrained, addicted to drugs, and brain-damaged. No experiment is prohibited, and painkillers aren't required. Even if...

Is there life outside Earth?

I believe it is quite unreasonable and foolish to assume that we (meaning all of Earth's life) are the only form of life in this vast system of planets and stars. What do you guys think?...

Is Star Wars Real?

RevL8ion
Jedi4

In this argument, I will be settling the matter that Star Wars is entirely fictional (although perhaps based on real-life events), and the world is totally unrelated to the Star Wars Universe. My opponent's objective is to show evidence that Star Wars is indeed existent in our world. I will keenly await his acceptance or rejection....

The theory of evolution is well established

MykSkodar
Jellon

In this debate, I will argue that evolution by natural selection is well established, as its title of scientific theory suggests, while my opponent will argue that it is ultimately flawed. Things that will not be debated: -the meaning of the word theory (scientific or otherwise) -abiogenesis (how life got started). The theory of evolution provides clues to the origin of life, but is not ultimetaly about the origin of life. Arguments on the origin of life from either side should therefore n...

Given the available data, denying the theory of evolution is completely unreasonable

Burncastle
daley

This debate should be impossible to accept, comment if you want to debate. Some clarifications: - I will have most (if not all) of the BoP, but my opponent should feel free to present any arguments he/she deems useful, either against evolution or in favor of an alternate theory. - The first round is for acceptance and I would like my opponent to present his/her position very quickly. - My first argument will be mostly copy pasted from one of my earlier debate, so don't be surprised...

As you know, the resolution is as follows: the benefits of being a throw-away society outweighs the costs to society and the environment. We model this resolution as follows: the scope would be for the people using the devices and the companies. Our goal is to have further development in society and make sure there"s less pollution, and no chaos. We have three constructive arguments to show why this resolution is true and should pass. Mr. Speaker, our first point is that new devices and uses o...
