There is no scientific evidence to support evolution

LittleBallofHATE
Samreay

What I mean by evolution, is Darwin's theory of descent with modification or macroevolution, as it's commonly referred to. In other words, the theory that all life has a common ancestor. Con must accept the burden of proof. He must prove that there is real scientific evidence for this theory. Four rounds. Acceptance. Opening arguments. Rebuttals. Closing argument. I look forward to this debate. Good luck....

Years are taken as units of time in the conventional sense as presently measured, not in an allegorical or poetic sense.The claim that the earth is less than 10,000 years old is part of Young Earth Creationism (YEC). In this debat...

My opponent must first accept. You can take this serious or not, it's up to the person. I am for me saying that what the topic of this debate is true. My opponent must prove my statement false. I will prove it to be truth. Accept, and then round 2 will commence, and the debate will get rolling. I hope to get a worthy opponent that know his science and like icecream. :P...
