Should creationism be taught in schools? (Evolution vs Creation)


I do not believe that creationism is a viable model for our existance to be taught as a fact. I believe the scientific theory of evolution is currently the only logical explanation for our existance today and creationism should not be taught in schools. My opponent will try to disprove this that creationism can be a viable explanation for our existance and must present his/her arguments in the first round. ...

Natural Selection method cannot build a design of moderate sophistication


This is not a debate about evolution but rather about the design method of small incremental changes which are then selected due to being advantageous. As an engineer, I would like to assert that this kind of method of design cannot produce any kind of mechanical design of moderate sophistication FROM SCRATCH. By moderate sophistication, I mean something like a motor, which has many interdependent parts. Another example would be a mechanical watch which also has many moving parts. I wo...

Is Evolution a scientific theory?


I do not believe that Evolution should be considered a scientific theory. I believe it should be called a tested hypothesis, but there is much evidence against it so you can't call it a theory. Please be respectful of what I believe and I will be respectful of you. Please no links. Use your own mind's knowledge to debate me....

Is mayonnaise a gender?


So I will be defending mayo as a gender? Okay. Mayonnaise is a gender. Why? Because there is no proof that it is not. According to the Solipsism theory (that most Psychologist will agree with) "there is nothing that we can prove besides our own conciseness". If that is the case, and you can't prove it is not, then external stimuli aren't valid as a scale to judge things by. Meaning that ideas (including gender) aren't anything further than my imagination. If I can imagine mayonnaise as a gender,...

Is "Materialistic science is the only reliable form of knowledge", a scientific statement?


"Materialistic Science is the Only Reliable Form of Knowledge"... is a comment made by my opponent, in the forums. My reply was that this statement is philosophical/ideological, not a scientific one, and he disagreed...So here we are. *Important Note: The debate subject is not the statement itself, but whether or not the statement is a scientific one. My opponent, as Pro, will argue that it IS scientific. I will take the Con position, and argue...

The probability argument falls flat when it comes to explaining the past


I am starting this debate because I've seen some famous fundamentalists and evangelical Christians mention this argument when trying to disprove abiogenesis. I would like to explain why this fails in a debate. Criterion for this debate is that my opponent has to have at least 10 debates finished.This is to prevent trolls and people unfamiliar with this site and topic to accept,although there are still some chances for that to happen (see what I did there?). 1st round - acceptance 2nd round...
