Dinasour soft tissues and DNA prove their recent existance

creationtruth
PotBelliedGeek

Dinosaurs are claimed to have gone extinct 65 million years ago. Recent findings of soft tissues in fossils, such as the 2012 discovery of DNA, and even unfossilized dinosaur bone nullify the idea of their ancient extinction. These findings fit just fine in the Biblical Creation model but contradict the geologic column/evolution models. Round 1 - Acceptance Round 2 - Opening Arguments Round 3 - Rebuttals/Closing Statements...

Be it resolved that: the zombie apocalypse will happen. I would like this to be a serious debate, so no trolling please.

Format: Round 1, acceptance Round 2, claims Round 3, rebuttals Round 4, rebuild and voting issues Although this is a serious debate, i want all involved t...

Evolution is better than creationism

spinosauruskin
JasperFrancisShickadance

Biological evolution is the best model we have to explain how life became diverse. It is not a religion. If you think it is, stop listening to Hovind or Comfort or Ham. A theory is the greatest point to be used in science, and is on the level of gravity, electromagnetism, and everything in science that is universally accepted. Creationism on the other hand is a position taken by religious fundamentalists who have blind faith in what they believe is the word of god. It is not even a theory....

Evolutionism Vs. Creationism

JasperFrancisShickadance
nonprophet

Pro = for Creationism * Con = for Evolutionism This will NOT be about the Big Bang or Beginning of Life, although Creationism explains all that together and Evolution is hard to believe without knowing where it started. Please don't be close-minded. I'd like to see a logical argument where we each show evidence and reason for our cases. Each round will bring it's own topics to hand, I'm sure :) 1st of all, I believe Creationism relies on the Bible (vice versa). 2nd, you cannot deny that Cr...

Information exists independently of matter and energy.

LittleBallofHATE
toughenough

As Pro, I state that information exists as something independent of matter and energy. What I mean by this, is that matter and energy are simply the medium that convey information. Information has it's own independent existence. Con must prove that the existence of information is somehow tied to matter and energy. Four rounds. 1) Acceptance. 2) Opening arguments. 3) Rebuttals. 4) Closing arguments. No rebuttals allowed....
