The Planet Earth will eventually end

Mister_Man
Aerogant

I saw this earlier and found it really interesting, and was hoping someone would challenge my point of view, which is that Earth will end one day.Anyway, first round can be for acceptance or clarifying terms or even your beginning arguments if you wish.Earth - This should be obvious, but we are referring to the planet we currently live on, 3rd rock from the sun.End - Cease to exist. Not just uninhabitable, but completely...

Restricted movement in anemonefish causes protandry so the species has better chances of surviving

discomfiting
lannan13

This (hopefully) will be my first debate. This debate will be about 'Why are anemonefish protandrous hermaphrodites?' My position is that they are protandrous due to a natural selection in order to increase their odds of overall survival of the species. If you have a different opinion on why they are as they are, accept it as "con". Protandrous: "(of a hermaphrodite flower or animal) having the male reproductive organs come to maturity before the female."...

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...

This House Believes That A Virgin Birth Is Scientifically Possible, Even If Improbable!

Ajabi
iamanatheistandthisiswhy

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This is an interesting debate topic, is it not? In any case the Spirit of the Motion is that there is a scientific possibility, or that science proves that a virgin birth could have occurred, even though it is improbable. My opponent would have to show that there is no scientific possibility that such a birth could occur. S/he could either provide medical/scientific evidence to the contrary or argue that the evidence I provide is irrelevant. In both cases my opponent must p...

There is no scientific evidence to support evolution

LittleBallofHATE
Samreay

What I mean by evolution, is Darwin's theory of descent with modification or macroevolution, as it's commonly referred to. In other words, the theory that all life has a common ancestor. Con must accept the burden of proof. He must prove that there is real scientific evidence for this theory. Four rounds. Acceptance. Opening arguments. Rebuttals. Closing argument. I look forward to this debate. Good luck....

Machrineith

polygamy is more natural than monogamy polygamy is more widely practiced in human society now and historically, so that is an indicator, given we are part of the natural world. polygamy is by far most widely practiced in the animal kingdom, even with closely related primates. they did a study on primates, and concluded that the wider a species shoulder, the more polygamous that species is. humans are on the conservative, but polygamous side of things....
