Young Earth Creationism is negated by much of modern science, not just the theory of evolution.


In this debate, I will argue that Young Earth Creationism conflicts with much of modern science, not just the theory of evolution. As such, it is an untenable position. My opponent will defend that this is not the case either by demonstrating how much of modern science is in agreement with the YEC worldview or by refuting my claims (or both). To keep the debate short and sweet, I have set argument max to 5,000 characters with a 48 hour response time. Please ensure you are available enough...

Math Debate #1


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...

Cows Are Evil


Hello, and welcome to the the debate over whether or not cows are evil. Uberdragon (me) is representing the pro side, while CowsAgainstHumanity (my good friend) is representing the con side. Before I begin may I say good luck to both of us. To begin, I hereby proclaim that all cow bovine things are super evil. Have you ever noticed that your cows are secretly plotting against you? Yes, they are! Your favorite milk creating four legged farm toy wants to shoot you and then rape your sexy wife...

Is evolution more reliable than creationism?


Evolution is clearly more reliable than creationism. In fact, we have observed evolution: In this article, you will find that genes have been observed to evolve from mutated ones. Creationism, on the other hand, has no evidence at all. Creationists rely on taking the few holes in the theory of evolution, and acting like that is proof of god. This is just not correct. While there is no way to prove there is no god, there is no wa...

Evolution is not the best scientific model for the origin of species


Definitions: -Evolution: the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth. -Scientific Model: a physical, conceptual, or mathematical representation of a real phenomenon that may be used to explain and predict the behaviour of real objects or systems and are used in a variety of scientific disciplines, ranging from physics and chemistry to ecology and the Earth sciences.

In Support of Embryonic Stem Cell Research


I take the position that embryonic stem cell research should be fully supported by nations all over the world. I will go into details as to how stem cell research is instrumental in potentially healing serious diseases such as Parkinson's Disease, Type I Diabetes, and other ailments. To disprove this argument, one most provide iron clad evidence that stem cell research does more harm than good. At the end, the votes will determine if stem cell research is a good thing, or whether it causes issue...

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


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...

DDO Tier Tournament 2-Flat Earth Theory vs Spherical Earth Theory


Pro will be providing evidence for Flat Earth Theory. Con will be provided evidence of a round Earth. The debate should be determined by preponderance of evidence.There are to be no semantics with the terms round Earth or flat Earth. Neither round Earth theory or Flat Earth theory doubt topographical differences.First round is for acceptance. P.s. Romanii wanted me to add this. Round earth theory doesn't necessarily mean a perfect sphere. Just like flat Earth theory wo...
