The earth is spherical

Edlvsjd
Mharman

The perpetuation of ball earth theory, just like Evolutionary Theory and the Big Bang Theory, has become more of a religion, an orthodoxy, than a science. People are expected not to question it, no matter what, at the risk of losing their job, breaking their careers, losing friends, being shunned by family, and being ridiculed by anyone who refuses to think for themselves. If anyone attempts to present scientific evidence contrary to the popularly held view, it is immediately dismissed as "consp...

The Earth is spherical (or at least closely spherical)

I think that the Earth is spherical (or at least closely spherical). I include the brackets as it isn't perfectly spherical, but is virtually spherical. I am mostly interested in the flat earth believers, but if you think it is shaped like a pear or steak or whatever then I will debate you as well. Accept the debate if you think the Earth isn't spherical....

Cat47

Arguments must be made in Round 2 alone. 2. Round 2 is for arguments. Arguments will be made on the intent of selling a prospective audience on your position. 3. Round 3 is for rebuttals to the opponent's argument. No new arguments may be posted in this round. Instead, each opposing debater m...

We should not be able to genetically engineer humans because in doing so, we take away the right of diversity and individuality that each of us possess. It is also not fair to those who are genetically engineered. ...

Homosexuality to Heterosexuality

D7th
jo154676

Can a homosexual, become heterosexual? I think it's possible. I assert homosexuality is not genetic, but mental; that homosexuality, is an abstraction of 'human competitive nature'. Boys will be boys... "There is a woman, long lost, in every homosexual man's imagination". 'Human competitive nature' spans from small-scale to large-scale; for example, simple games, and then, war... The abstraction of, this nature, can be abstruse. The long lost woman of the homosexual man's ima...
