Creationism/Intelligent design should NOT be taught in science classes as a valid scientific theory

Phoenix61397

This debate is impossible to accept. Comment if you wish to debate. Creationism: The belief that holds evolution to be false and promotes a literal interpretation of the Biblical Genesis creation story. I would like to clarify the resolution. The full resolution will be: "Creationism should not be taught in science classes as a valid, legitimate theory with equal scientific weight to evolution." No semantics will be permitted (this goes on my part too, I will not dismiss creationism simp...

Not just uninhabitable, but completely...

ERV Evidence Alone Demonstrates Common Ancestry

Envisage

This debate is closed, leave a message if you want to take this debate. Full resolution: "Endogenous Reteroviral Evidence Alone Demonstrates Common Ancestry" This debate is ultimately about evolution, and ERVs I think are pretty much compelling on their own in demonstrating that it occurred. Format: 48h/round 10,000 Words BoP is on me Round 1. Rules/acceptance Round 2. Arguments/rebuttals Round 3. Arguments/rebuttals Round 4. Rebuttals only (no new arguments) Note to voters...
