Earth: Spherical vs Flat

Black-Jesus
Edlvsjd

Recently I've come across a lot of flat-Earthers for some reason on the internet recently. The burden of proof is on both parties as I set up the debate so that both parties are making an affirmative claim. Pro is spherical Earth model, which is me, and Con is flat Earth model, my opponent.FOUR ROUNDS:1st Round: Acceptance/Opening statements2nd Round: Opening arguments3rd Round: Rebuttals/More arguments4th Round: More rebuttals/Closing statements...

Hello. I am glad to be participating in this tournament and I hope that this will be a good debate. For Round 1, I will explain the rules and you will accept the debate.

Good luck, and may the better debater win!...

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...

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...

CON is refuting their arguments.This debate is not relying on evidence; it is not PRO's job to provide evidence of parallel universes but to show how they are logical.BoP is on PRO. Definitions LOGICAL - Goes along with logic, NOT relying on evidence ASSUME - Use...

Is Vice Regent able to know reality from delusions?

What50
Surgeon

IF VICE REGENT IS UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT VICE REGENT KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET HASN'T ANSWERED ANY OF HIS DEBATES. Vice Regent loves to live under the delusion that he is the guardians of rationality. But how can he hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If he cannot do this, he is literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anythi...
