Helium Balloons and Blimps Should be Banned.

DrNRG
minddrag

Helium balloons, blimps, and other frivolous uses of helium should be banned / legally outlawed. Helium gas is so light that much of it escapes earth's atmosphere completely and goes off into outer space impossible to recover. Helium is not a renewable resource and cannot be economically synthesized. Synthesis involves hitting Lithium or Boron atoms with high velocity protons and this does not yield economically useful amounts. Some helium is generated from alpha particles from radioactive de...

The Universe is 13.8 billion years old

TheRussian
ViceRegent

I will not be arguing that the universe is exactly 13.8 billion years as this is very difficult. However, I will be arguing that the "scientific worldview" of the age of the universe is very reasonable and that the age of the universe can be measured in millions and billions of years, not thousands. I expect (though not require) that my opponent will be a creationist who will be arguing that the universe (and Earth) is several thousands years old, and my opponent may present his/her arguments...

There is most likely an intelligent creator of the universe

Wylted
tejretics

Okay Tejretics chose these judges for the most part, I just agreed. I finally found time to put some effort and energy into debating. I'm sick of seeing the God debates and even sicker of seeing people who actually specialize in nothing but God debates. With that being said, one of you guys with no life and way too much free time who spend all day debating the same topic over and over are welcome to apply in the comments. I'll accept the best opponents, from those who specialize in this ty...

The scientific method requires observation, testability and repeatability. Has anyone observed macro evolution taking place? If not, it is not science. Please only credential scientists with at least a BS answer....

For atheists, is the unverse infinately old or did it arise out of nothing?

ViceRegent
TheRussian

Atheists cannot allow anything outside of the universe to cause it to come into existence. Thus, they are left with the universe being infinitely old or that it arose out of nothing. Either way, they believe contrary to science, for the 2nd Law of Thermo says the universe cannot be infinitely old and the 1st Law of Thermo says it could not have arisen out of nothing. Atheism must be wrong....
