Math Debate #1

RevL8ion
stylishBOY

The title's pretty self-explanatory. Because I'm a whole lot better at mathematics than debating, and there's really nothing math-related here, I'd like to start perhaps the first math debate in all of DDO. Here are the rules.Oh wait, first, I'd like to tell you to do something: Hold your tongue with your fingers and say "I like to math debate." If you know what I mean...anyway:The first round is always acceptance only...

Philosophy: Determinism Accurately Describes Reality

GeoLaureate8
Danielle

In this debate, my opponent is taking the hard determinist stance that everything in the whole of existence is predetermined. My duty is to demonstrate that some things are not determined, and I will also present a case for free will. Definitions: Determinism - The philosophical doctrine that every state of affairs, including every human event, act, and decision is the inevitable consequence of antecedent states of affairs. [1] Free Will - The philosophical doctrine that the conduct of...

This will be a fun one. I am relatively new here, forgive me for any format or conduct errors. I will argue the con (that they did happen). First round will be acceptance, second round arguments begin. Anyone can accept. Good luck and enjoy....

Dinasour soft tissues and DNA prove their recent existance

creationtruth
PotBelliedGeek

Dinosaurs are claimed to have gone extinct 65 million years ago. Recent findings of soft tissues in fossils, such as the 2012 discovery of DNA, and even unfossilized dinosaur bone nullify the idea of their ancient extinction. These findings fit just fine in the Biblical Creation model but contradict the geologic column/evolution models. Round 1 - Acceptance Round 2 - Opening Arguments Round 3 - Rebuttals/Closing Statements...

Scientific Evidence Supports the Theory of Evolution

Muted
Wnope

This is in response to "Wnope"s Evolution Corner" http://debate.org/forums/religion/topic/26562/, where he has made the claim that creationists wet their pants when presented with the "actual math." As such, I want to see what Wnope is really made of and sent this challenge. The last debate he had was made solely to gain voting rights. For this debate, Definitions: Scientific evidence : Data gained through the scientific method, which can be summarized as "testable, repeatable, falsifia...

Kukithan
rabbidrabbid

I know that aliens, or at least those in UFOs, are fake. They are demonic apparitions. I have experienced both abduction and demonic activity, and the two were very similar. Second, aliens always seem to have some message that contradicts the Bible. Finally, I can name two incredible pastors who agree with me: Doug Batchelor and Charles Lawson....
