Eternal life is existing


The basic premise proceeds from the assumption that the probability of a world coming into existence exactly like our own is greater than zero (we know this because our world exists). If space is infinite, then cosmology tells us that our existence will recur an infinite number of times. We also know for a fact that we are made of atoms and particles. Giving infinite time and space, there will eventually be same atoms and particles IN SAME ORDER, therefore our existence is cyclical and not li...

The Use of Animals within Scientific Research


Before the publication of "On Fabric of the Human Body" by Andreas Versalius, people were dissecting animals in hopes understanding the human anatomy. It was not until Versalius had published his book that the world understood the functions and positions of organs within the human body. In comparison to animals, many areas were positioned differently than the human body. Animals also have alternate functions to certain organs due to their diets and their habits of walk, mating, etc. Currently, t...

Intelligent design is how the universe originated


Dear opponent: First of all, I would like to thank you for accepting this challenge. I believe that the bible, the word of god is the ultimate truth, and the accounts in Genesis explain how the earth and the universe came into existence. I believe that God created the earth in six, twenty-four hour days, about six- thousand years ago. I expect that we will both not go into origin, or we will stay away from it as much as possible. My reasoning for this is that in order for a theory to become sc...
