Radiometric Dating is Accurate

RoyLatham
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. Carbon 14 is created by cosmic rays in the upper atmosphere. It decays to nitrogen 14 with a half life of 5730 years. C14 is continually being created and decaying, leading to an equilibrium state in the atmosphere. When the carbon dioxide, containing C14 as well as stable C12 and C13, is taken i...

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...

it is not wrong for catholics to vote for a prochoice president, in this political climate

dairygirl4u2c
dsjpk5

by catholic church standards, it is not wrong for a catholic to vote for a prochoice president, in this political climate the pope said a person shouldn't vote for prochoice politicians unless a proportionate reason exists to vote for them. this could include not just bigger genocides, but also the idea that voting on the issue of abortion likely wont change abortion. prolife presidents get elected, but not much changes. there's not enough people who are prolife to justify keeping voting on t...

Nur-Ab-Sal
devient.genie

By God, I mean a classical theistic conception of God. An omnipotent, omniscient, perfectly good God. Not a specific God, of course, just a being with these 'attributes.' I'd ask that devient.genie use round 1 for acceptance of the debate, so that I can begin my case in round 2....

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...

The earth is a spherical shape.

Edlvsjd
WaraiOtoko

Pro, please provide proof that the earth is not flat. Bop is on pro. Proof must not depend on the first assumption that it is a sphere. Proof must be reprovable with common sense and everyday observations and experimentation recorded anyway. Any media publicly available is useable. Sources can include anything until the opposition proves them unreliable recources, or the claim is false. I hope pro accepts this debate, I feel this is the most important conspiracy. It proves the bible t...

DDO Tier Tournament 2-Flat Earth Theory vs Spherical Earth Theory

Wylted
Romanii

Pro will be providing evidence for Flat Earth Theory. Con will be provided evidence of a round Earth. The debate should be determined by preponderance of evidence.There are to be no semantics with the terms round Earth or flat Earth. Neither round Earth theory or Flat Earth theory doubt topographical differences.First round is for acceptance. P.s. Romanii wanted me to add this. Round earth theory doesn't necessarily mean a perfect sphere. Just like flat Earth theory wo...
