Religion - god may not exist

drewredli11
dwright

I believe that a higher power exists. I belive that we evolved from apes. (I belive in science and the theory of evolution.) I think that more proof has to be given to make the theory of "God" true. We need hard facts. Hard proof that something exists and that we didn't just come up with the religion of Christianity and God because we needed something to belive in times of hardship....

Should the government fund more space travel?

R_Jacob_Percival_M

In 2014, NASA received $17.6 Billion in funding from the U.S. government. This represented .5% of the of the $3.4 Trillion budget last year and 35% of total spending on academic scientific research in the United States. I think that the government should continue fund more space exploration. I believe that a space agency that is fully funded will be beneficial to human society and history as a whole. Thank you for accepting this debate. Use round one to give your opening statements, no reb...

I think the travel ban should stay in place. The constitution states in article 2 that the president has the power to restrict the flow of immigration. This means Trumps travel ban constitutional. It also has the interest of the U.S and its saftey in mind....

Noah's flood is scientifically impossible.

Noah's Flood is scientifically impossible.Here is why. Noah's flood was said to cover the mountains.I'll be generous and give it a 6 kilometre depth rather than Everest's 8.8 kilometres. Earth has an average radius of 6371 Km. Let the math begin. To find the volume of water needed for such a flood,we can simply use the volume of earth pre and post flood. Volume of sphere (roughly) is 4/3 pi R^3 With some math and a calculator 1.3333 * pi * 6371^3 = 1083206916845 km^3 1.3333 * pi * (6371...

No-one should be an organ donor in the event of their death

mostlogical
CosmoJarvis

Organ donation is a personal choice, I have no problem with living people donating blood etc to loved ones. But people can decide what happens to their organs when they die - https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/. If you do not take your name off the NHS organ register or discuss with family what you wish to happen to your organs when you die then family will decide what they think you would have wanted. This is wrong in my opinion, nobody should be an organ donor, and those on the register shou...

Does God Exist?

For a word to be added to the dictionary, its primary intentional reference has to be found by the editors. An intentional reference is simply what is intended to be referred to when people use a term; it is a more descriptive way to say the definition for a word. If I were in another country where I didn't know the language very well, and I heard an unfamiliar term, I would want for the dictionaries in that language to explain what is intended to be summarized by that word. Extension is the qua...

IntroHayd asked for people who were willing to debate old LD topics with him, and I was happy to volunteer myself. I don't believe Hayd and I have debated yet, so this should be a wonderful opportunity to do so--he is an excellent debater, and I look forward to our upcoming exchange.As this topic involves a controversial subject on which people may or may not have strong opinions, I have opted to nominate a judging panel of people I know to be qualif...
