Food Irradiation

merpmerpy
BrothaDarkness

Food Irradiation is vital in the twentieth century's produce distribution, growth, and purification. Irradiating food enhances the safety and can prevent illness/epidemics from occurring. Due to the FDA's maximum dosage of 4kGy, it reduces and in some cases eliminates major food borne pathogens; E-coli, Salmonella, Hepatitis A, etc. Not only does it terminate bacteria outside of the produce, irradiation can kill bacteria inside as well....

Animal experimentation is immoral.

The topic and the arguments for and against is actually pretty self-explanatory. I've been thinking about this, and I've come to the conclusion that both sides of this debate have valid points that will make this debate very much enjoyable. I am not tolerant of any sort of name-calling or trolling. I am actually not a animal rights advocate. I'm here for the sake of battling logic to logic. If anything comes to condescension and belittling, I'm really not interested. 1st- round opening...

Resolved: God's Existence Does Not Entirely Violate Science

Loveshismom
Sagey

I will be arguing that science can support God's existence and surprisingly, REQUIRES God to exist. Examples: 1. The Big Bang could not have happened without God. It violates the law of conservation of energy, which states that matter and energy cannot be created nor destroyed. How do I know I am not contradicting myself? Because scientific laws only apply to physical beings (i.e. Us). God is a spiritual being (John 4:14) and is all-powerful, so physical law cannot apply to Him. 2. The t...

The earth is probably less than 10,000 years old.

GarretKadeDupre
bluesteel

In this debate, Pro will argue the evidence that the earth is younger than 10,000 years, and Con will argue the evidence that the earth is older than 10,000 years. The debate is to be determined by the preponderance of evidence. 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...

Gay marriage should be illegal

The Bible does NOT say that gay marriage should be illegal and I would argue that it does not even call homosexuality a sin. What evidence do you have to support your position that it does?...

Pennies should stop being produced in the U.S.

lightingbolt50
lannan13

I think that pennies should stop being produced by the U.S. mint and taken out of circulation, similar to what Canada did. The penny costs more to make then it's worth, it's rarely actually used. It's a detriment to our economy. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2-4: ArgumentsRound 5: Closing statements. ...
