The earth is flat

Framework for this debate: Whoever can defend their position the best should win the debate rather than common belief. This is a serious debate and I implore everyone looking to vote on the subject to read the debate. It should get interesting! Throughout history, scientists and common people have argued on whether the world is spherical or flat. Despite most recent belief, the world is in fact flat and can be proven as such by first creating a visual image, then taking out the evidence su...

Intelligent Design should be taught alongside Evolution in science class, in USA High Schools.

The existence and possibility of Intelligent Design is a complicated topic, that throughout history has been debated by many people and important figures. Some arguments extend furthur. They extend to the topic of "Should Intelligent Design also be taught in science class?" I believe it should not. There are many reasons why not including: A) Intelligent Design is not a Science. B) Intelligent Design is purely a smokescreen for fanatical Christian and Islamic (or any "Jesus/God-believing"...

Time does not exist

Time does not exist. Just think about it, as an object how can it. Time is merely something invented by humans to tell the difference between now and then, then does not exist. People argue the potential of time travel but how is that even plausible if nothing exists but now, it's not like all history is being saved on some hard-drive for future reference and future does not exist on some tape that we can fast forward to have a peek at what's to come. All there is, is now. Any takers?...

Intelligent Design is not a scientific theory.

Intelligent Design is a much of a scientific theory as sleeping is a sport (this isn't my point of contention, mind you). By any reasonable account of science, ID fails to qualify as a scientific theory. First, I look to Karl Popper's account of science for support. Popper's principle contribution to the philosophy of science is the concept of falsification; that is, a proposed theory must have the capable of refutation. Theories that escape refutation are not necessarily unhelpful or even i...

words are the key to everything.

so many people debate things that will not have a conclusion. the debaters will always believe exactly what they believe. i would like to challenge anyone to debate with me about the power of written words in our life. it is not about GOD or the devil, it is about the words that you decide to use and serve. whatever you want in this life is already here for your benefit. the beginning is the word, always the word is first....

The world's history is mostly pre-determined to happen the way it has happened.

Leonitus_Trujillo

I am not saying that God outlined history to happen the way it happened. What I am saying logically and scientifically it can be proven that world history on Earth would be similar to world history on another planet with the same conditions as earth. Earth is the perfect distance away from the sun that our atmosphere wont be sucked into the sun's orbit, which is the case with mars. We are the perfect near the sun that there is suitable warmth for life. Therefore life exist on Earth. Becaus...

Global Warming Was NOT Caused By Humans

Curtispov11

Global warming is a natural phase of the Earth. Back in the Ice Age, the Earth melted the ice on its own. All of these scientists out there in this world are saying that humans caused global warming and we are all going to die some day because of it. so are they saying that millions of years ago when cavemen were dominant, that they emitted harmful things into the enviroment? The Ice Age wasn't started because of them. And I can tell you that it didn't melt because of people either. No,...

We cannot know anything empirically.

darkenedcorridor
wingnut2280

Nietzsche says that all truths are merely metaphors that have lost their sensuous force. In other words we cannot know anything. His reasoning for that is that our perceptions of our senses are all translations of translations (e.g. in touch we have the physical touch which is translated to the wholly different medium of nerve signal, which is translated to the wholly different medium of perception)...
