Is evolution 100% true?

Leo.Messi
roark555

Is evolution 100% true? Basically-is evolution all true? Or can certain aspects of it be proven false? Terms: Evolution: as in Macro-Evolution 100%: entirely, without any fault etc. I look forward to a good clean argument with just 2 rules. 1. Be Chivalrous (argue well, no non-sense, serious, no profanity etc.) 2. No junky public editing websites. (Wikipedia, Yahoo etc.) Thanks!...

Can anything be proven?

DebateMasterJ
Devils-Advocate

The method used to solve problems is the scientific method, which results in a conclusion. It is impossible for anything to be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt because: a) conclusions are biased b) conclusions can only be supported, not proven correct, by information gathered c) conclusions can be overturned by new information being discovered Just to be clear, my argument is that it is impossible for anything to be proven, true or false. In order for Pro to win the debate, they will h...

Conservatism and Libertarianism

thett3
FourTrouble

Resolved: Conservatism and Libertarianism are ideological allies. I am Affirming. The burden of proof is shared, my opponent needs to show that on balance, the goals of Libertarianism and Conservatism are too far apart to be treated as actual allies. What exactly defines a Libertarian and Conservative will be a point of contention between my opponent and myself, but my opponent acknowledges upon accepting that the definitions need to be within reason.

This House Believes that the Social Contract is a viable political theory

Stephen_Hawkins
YYW

The debate is as simple as it stands. My opponent should spell out the social contract theory in his first round (instead of using it solely for acceptance). The social contract I refer to is the one used in political philosophy - the concept of the social contract as a form of legitimizing the state. I look forward to whoever accepts this debate for a rigorous competition. Note the debate has a smaller character limit than most - 4000 characters maximum....

UchihaMadara
TrasguTravieso

1. First round for acceptance 2. No new arguments in the final round 3. The debate should be impossible to accept. Finding a way to accept without permission will result in an automatic loss for Con. If you would like to accept, please say so in the comments section, and I will challenge you in a few days. 4. By accepting the debate, Con agrees to use the following definition(s) Non-Aggression Principle: the moral principle that all humans have natural rights such as life, personal l...
