Evolution exists!

Turtlebro
Jonnykelly

Evolution exists. Now make clear I am not debating if God exists or not, but I am debating evolution itself. If evolution truly does not exist, then explain why there have been skulls found of creatures very simalar to us. These skulls become closer and closer to a human skull. On the topic of human qualities, explain why we have a very simlar genetic code to apes. We have a 96% DNA match with chimps, a 90% DNA match with cats, a 80% match with cows, and a 75% match with mice. Notice the pattern...

Eternal life is existing

Therammo
Ryan_Sphar

The basic premise proceeds from the assumption that the probability of a world coming into existence exactly like our own is greater than zero (we know this because our world exists). If space is infinite, then cosmology tells us that our existence will recur an infinite number of times. We also know for a fact that we are made of atoms and particles. Giving infinite time and space, there will eventually be same atoms and particles IN SAME ORDER, therefore our existence is cyclical and not li...

Human can't chage his destiny

Zarroette

I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfil our destiny, but our fate is sealed.

That1User

Abortion

a_janis1
TBR

I consider abortion to be one of the most important issues facing our world today. The reason being is because abortion either is the legalized killing of innocent human beings or abortion is not the killing of a human being. There is no in-between. I will stand against abortion in every case with one exception. That one exception is when the mother is guaranteed to die during child birth or if both the fetus and the mother will die during child birth. I argue that abortion is the killing of...

usernamesareannoying
Commondebator

PrologueOkey dokey. Hey there! Now, this is a debate about the likelihood of a God existing, or not... I normally affirm the former, but I would like to argue the other side for once. I would like to propose possible contentions to the argument that hasn't been used against myself...Acceptance...

Quotation Philosopher Debate - Utilitarianism (pro) vs. Deontology (con)

Surrealism
Philocat

This is just a little experiment I'd like to try out. The essence of this is that it is a "quatation debate" meaning that we will debate the topic, in this case Utilitarianism vs. Deontology, using only quotations from the relevant philosophers.Rebuttals will be less important here, as we will be mostly trying to build our case better than our opponent. That is why there are only three rounds.Round One - Acceptance and state your most important philosopher.

Existence of a God

Atheism_Debater

This is a rematch to a previous debate that I did with Atheism_Debater. I was really disappointed with the vote of the previous debate. The same exact rules apply to both debaters. Rules: 1. No direct or insulting prof...
