IVF Debate

IVF is beneficial is a variety of ways. IVF is able to allow those who are unable to have a baby, have a child if they desire, such as single women, infertile women and men, and same-sex couples. Those who are unable to have a child without the assistance from medical professionals will most likely resort to IVF if they are determined to have their own children.

Grovenshar

Many thanks to my opponent, Grovenshar, for accepting the debate! For anyone else interested, comment here (http://www.debate.org/debates/Genetic-differences-explain-racial-IQ-gaps/1/)Rules:- Pro and Con will avoid debating the merits of IQ as a metric, or race as a classification system. While these are certainly debatable, being largely seperate and rather nu...

Scientific Evidence Supports the Theory of Evolution

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...

The Earth is hollow.

Chrysippus
Nur-Ab-Sal

This is in response to this thread: http://www.debate.org/forums/science/topic/21157/ A brief explanation of the subject can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollow_Earth Hollow in this case does not refer to the fact that there are caves and mines in the outer part of the crust, but to an alleged vast central space inside making up a significant fraction of the Earth's total volume. I will be arguing that the earth, in fact, is not hollow to any significant degree. My oppone...

Earth is a spinning ball.

mangolife23

I hold that the earth is not a spinning globe as modern science claims. I am looking for empirical evidence that we live in a ball spinning at 1,000mph, tilted at a 66.6° angle, travelling at 66,000 mph in a 600,000 mile race track around the sun in space. Pro must use round one to provide such evidence, and forfeit the last round. Any media publicly available may be used until said media or it's source is proven false or unreliable. ...
