DDO Tier Tournament 2-Flat Earth Theory vs Spherical Earth Theory

Wylted
Romanii

Pro will be providing evidence for Flat Earth Theory. Con will be provided evidence of a round Earth. The debate should be determined by preponderance of evidence.There are to be no semantics with the terms round Earth or flat Earth. Neither round Earth theory or Flat Earth theory doubt topographical differences.First round is for acceptance. P.s. Romanii wanted me to add this. Round earth theory doesn't necessarily mean a perfect sphere. Just like flat Earth theory wo...

Is Star Wars Real?

RevL8ion
Jedi4

In this argument, I will be settling the matter that Star Wars is entirely fictional (although perhaps based on real-life events), and the world is totally unrelated to the Star Wars Universe. My opponent's objective is to show evidence that Star Wars is indeed existent in our world. I will keenly await his acceptance or rejection....

The theory of evolution is well established

MykSkodar
Jellon

In this debate, I will argue that evolution by natural selection is well established, as its title of scientific theory suggests, while my opponent will argue that it is ultimately flawed. Things that will not be debated: -the meaning of the word theory (scientific or otherwise) -abiogenesis (how life got started). The theory of evolution provides clues to the origin of life, but is not ultimetaly about the origin of life. Arguments on the origin of life from either side should therefore n...

Should Animals Be Used for Scientific or Commercial Testing?

Animalana
a_mysterious_stranger

Animal testing should not be used. For one, scientists still test it on humans anyways. Two, animals have a different anatomy when compared to humans, causing their result to be different from that of a human. Animal testing is cruelty to animals, yet scientists get away with it. The Animal Welfare Act allows animals to be burned, shocked, poisoned, isolated, starved, forcibly restrained, addicted to drugs, and brain-damaged. No experiment is prohibited, and painkillers aren't required. Even if...

I believe it is quite unreasonable and foolish to assume that we (meaning all of Earth's life) are the only form of life in this vast system of planets and stars. What do you guys think?...

bsh1
FMAlchemist

OverviewA battle of...Animals. This debate has a very simply premise. We will each choose an animal in round one (a species, not a subspecies). This animal species must be mammalian, nonhuman, and must not be functionally or actually extinct. You may not claim the same animal as me.Once we have selected our animals (R1) we will use the succeeding rounds to debate which one is "better" where the criteria for what is "better" are: (a) appeal a...

ChosenWolff

the benefits of being a throw-away society outweighs the costs to society and the environment

hc4ever

As you know, the resolution is as follows: the benefits of being a throw-away society outweighs the costs to society and the environment. We model this resolution as follows: the scope would be for the people using the devices and the companies. Our goal is to have further development in society and make sure there"s less pollution, and no chaos. We have three constructive arguments to show why this resolution is true and should pass. Mr. Speaker, our first point is that new devices and uses o...
