ThePipes

Radiometric dating is the method for establishing the age of objects by measuring the levels of radioisotopes in the sample. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiometric_dating One example is carbon dating.

Israel is on the short end of the stick

m93samman
juvanya

The full resolution of the debate is "Israel has clearly violated human rights and is unjustified in its actions." Juvanya has been adamant in upholding zionist doctrines and beliefs on facebook, and, after several days, he has refused to change his beliefs. No one is really judging the debates, though. Maybe here, the voting will provide for some sort of metric by which we determine who wins. _____ Rules: _____ 1) Round 1 will have no argumentation whatsoever; if my opponent has any al...

My opponent can neither disprove gravity nor an almighty God.

wjmelements
Ragnar_Rahl

"an almighty God" means just that. It is not specifically the God of Abraham, but can also mean a god not worshipped. The concept of an almighty God is what's being debated. "gravity" is the theoretical force that attracts mass together in our universe. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/gravity (definition 3) "My opponent" means CON, also known as the contender. "can neither disprove...nor" means not being able to prove false either concept http://www.thefreedictionary.com/dispr...
