Evolution

mabrewer

I will argue against evolution. Debate structure: R1: Opening premises only R2: Rebuttals/new arguments R3-5: Rebuttals and conclusions, Opening Premise 1: The Biogenesis argument (redone) Many Young Earth Creationists will argue against Darwinian evolution by claiming that an ancestor came from non-life, and therefore directly violates Biogenesis, the law that life c...

Consciousness (Human, animal, etc) Can Exist Without a Brain

BradK
InnovativeEphemera

The topic of the debate is consciousness, the premise is that it can exist outside of the brain but we just don't have a machine capable of running it.Suppose that we understood all of the laws of nature that enable life to exist. Then suppose hypothetically that you could simulate all the models of chemistry/physics/quantum physics necessary, either in a virtual world, or in reality in some sort of "brain machine". I think that you could have an independently thinking conscious...

Evolution is better than creationism

spinosauruskin
JasperFrancisShickadance

Biological evolution is the best model we have to explain how life became diverse. It is not a religion. If you think it is, stop listening to Hovind or Comfort or Ham. A theory is the greatest point to be used in science, and is on the level of gravity, electromagnetism, and everything in science that is universally accepted. Creationism on the other hand is a position taken by religious fundamentalists who have blind faith in what they believe is the word of god. It is not even a theory....

Is the Bible right when it says not to have sex outside of marriage & only between a man & a woman?

1 Corinthians 6:18 (New International Version 2011) 1Co 6:18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Mark 10:6-9 (New International Version 2011) Mk 10:6 "But at the beginning of creation God "made them male and female." Mk 10:7 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, Mk 10:8 and the two will become one flesh." So they are no longer two, but on...

There are 366 days in a year (rounded to the nearest whole number).

RainbowDash52
Point.Less

Definitions: Day: the time in which Earth rotates exactly 360 degrees around its axis. Year: the time taken for the Earth to complete one revolution of its orbit. The first round is acceptance only. I will be arguing there are 366 days in a year, rounded to the nearest whole number....

Morality, like gravity, is a physical force in nature

Mike_10-4
creedhunt

I (Pro) would like to explore, from a scientific vantage point, with my opponent (Con) in the construct of morality being part of the physical Laws of Nature, not man-made. I would like to keep the debate within the following spectrum: That is, morality is an outgrowth of life's Unalienable Rights, which is an outgrowth of the Constructal Law, which is an outgrowth of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The topic of life's Unalienable Rights have been debated recently, and I encourage Con sh...

Creationism should be taught in school (as in science classes)

zommunist
General-Z

I don't think creationism should be taught in schools. There aren't enough evidence for the idea that we are 6000 years old, but there are for evolution: immunology, DNA analysis, findings of skulls, and especially modern radiometric dating based on empirical study of radioactive decay. Although these processes are not inaccurate there uncertainties are blown out of proportion by creationists. Young earth creationists think that the Bible is 100% true and that only the word of God (i.e. the B...
