A theory in scientific terms is highly backed with evidence, facts, and countless experiments. Evolution has been supported with fossils, DNA, homologous structures, experimentation, embryology, and vestigial structures. It can be observed today through bacteria, elephants, and humans....

Pro: the Earth is flat, Con: The Earth is not flat

JimShady

Another debate on the classic topic of "is the Earth flat or not." I, the Con, will be arguing that it is not, and you the Pro, will be arguing that it is. You are expected to use science in you argument and follow all the standard debate procedure on DDO. Round 1: Acceptance, definitions, questions on rules. Round 2: Arguments, Rebuttals This is going to be a short debate. I also want to point out that I will have no chance to have rebuttals on my opponents arguments, so therefore he or...

Should animal testing be banned?

HazeHaz
backwardseden

Animals do not have rights, therefore it is acceptable to experiment on them. Animals do not have the cognitive ability or moral judgment that humans do and because of this they have been treated differently than humans by nearly every culture throughout recorded history. If we granted animals rights, all humans would have to become vegetarians, and hunting would need to be outlawed....

The city of Chicago being visible from the opposite shore, proves the earth is not a sphere.

Ramshutu2
Edlvsjd

One of Edlvsjd core arguments made in support of Flat earth (and against a spherical earth) is that the City of Chicago is visible from the opposite shore of Lake Michigan, something he states is not possible on a spherical earth, and effectively demonstrates that the earth is flat. This debate is Edlvsjd's opportunity to argue that this is the case. Rules: - As Edlvsjd is going to be supporting his claim, his FIRST round should be used for opening arguments; Edlvsjd should write "Last...

space is an intangetable reality

BrycePackwood
Revolutionist65

One of the first people to embrace Einstein's ideas was his former teacher, Hermann Minkowski (1864-1909). He realized that although different observers experience the same events, they will describe them differently because they disagree about the nature of space and the nature of time. On the other hand space and time taken together form a more robust entity: 'Henceforth space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will...
