Infinity+1 equal to infinity?

MisterH-D
sherlockholmesfan2798

Infinity(mathematics): A number greater than any assignable or countable number That was the definition i was given for infinity. Basically what it means is that infinity+1 is infinity. But look at this if let's say we measure the distance from person A to infinity, and we measure the distance from person B to infinity, where person B is a meter in front of A. Then logically, the magnitude of distance from A to infinity, is 1 greater than the distance B is from infinity. This means infinity +...

A Sentient Alien Species, if they exist, will likely look humanoid

First Round is for acceptance. Burden of Proof is on me. Last Round is for rebuttals only. No profanity, no sexually explicit language, no violent threats, and no trolling. By humanoid, I mean a life form with anatomical symmetry, two arms, two legs, and upright stature, as well as perhaps some other human features which I may include later. Let's be flexible enough to allow for slight deviation from this this definition, as long as overall the lifeform is humanoid. May the better debater...

The 1,001 Inventions Tour is a Fraud & The Golden Age is a Myth

DavidMGold
Aiham

The primary issue being debated is whether the 1,001 Muslim Inventions is a fraudulent exhibit that is historically false and falsely conflates medieval science with modern science. At issue are inventions or discoveries existing long before Islam. Secondary issues would be the erroneous claim of scientific "miracles" in the Qu'ran, the total lack of Islamic contributions to modern science, and the myth of the so-called "Golden Age" in the Islamic World....

Is Evolution Scientific?

Nathan.apologetics
2-D

The belief in evolution is a remarkable phenomenon. It is a hypothesis that is defended by the scientific community with a fiery passion, despite macro-evolution's (evolution from one distinct kind of organism into another) contradictions with several key scientific laws. The origins, insufficiency of substantial evidence and the inconsistencies of evolutionary dogma will be outlined in this debate.Evolution is a hypothesis that contradicts physics,biology,the fossil record and common...

Rahma-ali
Mister_Man

*message if you would like to debate against me* The big bang theory; a theory that scientists suggest how the earth and universe was created. The big bang theory is rather a unrealistic theory, saying that the universe was created by a spontaneous explosion which created what is now the universe. how can such perfect and planned like universe be created witch an explosion? Such theory goes against religious views; God and his creation....

Although I do not comepletly believe in this matter, I would like to attempt to argue otherwise. Never done this before, so tips are appreciated in comments....

Genetic Modification of Animals is not beneficial to humanity

aw0019
VogonPoet

I claim that genetic engineering of animals will not benefit humanity. We believe this because many animals are mutilated or even killed before a successful clone is made There were a total of 277 attempts to clone Dolly before scientists succeeded. Only a 5% average of cloned embryos are born and then survive.When an animal is cloned, the genetic makeup is that of an adult, so you could say that Dolly was an adult in a baby"s body.Although Dolly was successfully cloned, she had many problems wi...
