The Earth is spherical and the Flat Earth hypothesis is false

Zaephou
Dereklewis

It is a widely accepted fact that the Earth, and all planetary objects are spherical (even though they may not be perfect spheres), and yet Flat Earth believers insist that the Earth is a flat cuboid travelling through space with a Sun and moon with a diameter of 32 km above it and provides absolutely no evidence for their ridiculous claims while disregarding the countless amounts of evidence we have for a spherical Earth as government lies. Flat Earth believers simply reject evidence such as...

Mid-century cooling was primarily anthropogenic

One of my first global climate change debates my opponent brought up the mid-century cooling trend. Stating that a lot of oil was burned during that time period and that since there was cooling in that time period fossil fuels don't generate Co2. The time period was 1945-1975.I knew there was something wrong with the logic, but I couldn't tell what. Anyways, here's the answer. Sulfur emissions

Evolution and science is an oxymoron

Thiest_1998
SploonTube

Hi I'm Thiest and I believe that evolution and science is an oymoron because science by definition is a study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. and since evolution does none of those things I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. By evolution I am talking about: Cosmic evolution: the origin of time, space, and matter from nothing in the "big bang" Chemical evolution: all elements "evolved" from hydrogen Stellar evolution: star...

The best method to determine whether or not man made climate change is true is reduction of Co2.

harrytruman

Full topic: The best method to determine whether or not man made climate change is true or false is to dramatically reduce man made levels of Co2.We need to take drastic measures to reduce man made Co2 levels ASAP. I've become convinced of this due to the climate change deniers. Simply, put the climate change deniers are correct, there is not enough evidence. Therefore, we need to accumulate more evidence via experimentation. Thus far all we ha...

Human cloning should not be banned

fabvanshita

The creation of genetically identical copies of human, given the term Human Cloning, is generally used to refer to the reproduction of human cells and tissues artificially. It is a possibility that seems more viable now than it had been a few years ago. It has the potential to save lives and make a better quality of living for our future generations. Practiced on livestock for a while now, the process of human cloning has seen incredible results. The techniques have been proven to work and w...
