Resolution: All whole numbers are interesting.

sboss18
GangstaRob

Starting a relatively casual-style debate for anyone interested. I am for the idea that every single whole number can be considered interesting, and my opponent will try to convince us the resolution is false. I will provide all necessary definitions I can think of. (Feel free to let me know if you want me to change any of the given definitions. I will consider reasonable alterations.) All: The whole quantity or...

Creationism is more Logical than the Theory of Evolution

debater12332
Danielle

I will be arguing that Creationism makes more sense and is backed by more evidence than the Theory of Evolution. Creationism: the belief that the universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation, as in the biblical account, rather than by natural processes such as evolution. Evolution: the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form. I will be arguing for the existence of a creator, and more specifically the Judeo-Christ...

Earth is spherical/spheroid shaped

Edlvsjd

I will challenge Edlvsjd for this debate as he seems to be one of the actually serious flat earthers and not a troll. He will argue Earth is flat while I shall argue it's round, good luck! Rules 1) No trolling 2) No ad hominem 3) No profanity 4) Sources should be given 5) Burden of proof is shared, we both must prove what shape Earth is, is it a sphere/spheroid planet or disk/infinite plane? Rounds 1) Acceptance 2) Opinion with your evidence and sources 3) Rebuttals 4) Defence...

The Earth is flat

Cat47
Edlvsjd

In this debate, I will be challenging debate.org's favorite flat Earther Edlvsjd to another debate on the shape of the Earth. The rules are simple. 1. First round is for acceptance only. 2. Second round is for arguments only. No rebuttals, because that is for the third round. 3. No new arguments can be made in the third round. 4. Show some proof for your arguments......

Should Animal Testing be Legal?

Twiggy1612
Plasmastrike

Human beings act on instinct. Animals do not have that ability. That is a well known fact. However, does this simple ability distinguish us so much that while you are barely allowed touch another human, you can do completely immoral experiments to animals? I hope not, my friends. While I agree that for diseases such as Swine Flu, animals should be treated on, I find it cruel to test in perfectly healthy animals. I hope the audience can see my point on this matter....

Capitalistslave

Round 1 is just for you to accept. In round 1, type that you accept my debate and nothing more. Round 2 is opening statements and primary claims. The third round is the main one, with most of your points/ rebuttals. The fourth is final statements and conclusions. The participant shall agree to no ad hominem attacks. Thank you....

Global Warming is Man-Made

16kadams
RoyLatham

==Clarification== I will be arguing that mankind IS the cause of global warming, my opponent will be arguing that mankind is NOT the main driver of modern climate change. My opponent, therefore, is arguing that the theory of anthropogenic climate change is incorrect. This is pretty straightforward. Abbreviations which might be used: AGW -- Anthropogenic global warming CR -- cosmic ray[s] TSI -- Total solar irradiation MWP -- Medieval Warm Period SSN -- Sun spot number PDO --...
