Resolved: Evolution is more consistent with the evidence than is young earth creationism.

Before we begin, let's give some definitions. Evolution- the scientific theory that states modern organisms descended from ancient ones through a process of gradual modification over billions of years and share a common ancestry. Young Earth Creationism- the belief that distinct kinds of organisms, along with the Earth, were created less than ten thousand years ago The burden of proof is SHARED. This will establish an even playing field for both sides of the debate. The first round is...

Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution

Kbbond
ConservativeLiberal101

Studies in biology and its effects in our lives are based in evolution. Evolution therefore should not be a battle ground between science and religion. It must be accepted and understood. If we argue over the viability of evolution, we may as well argue over the viability of mathematics because evolution is a quantifiable science....

Is the Big Bang Theory true?

Edvin_32178
drewyman83

I personally do not belive in the Big Bang Theroy because it is said that it is the reason why all the planets and the galaxies were created. This is makes no sense because how can a explosion make everything go in a specific way. Starting off with that a explosion wouldn't have put the Earth in a specific place not to far from the sun and not to close. This so called"Big Bang Theory" if is real wouldn't have had that' the Earth be in a specific place, it would be in a totally random place becau...
