A human being in the Zygote, Embryo and Fetal stage of their life is "a human being"

Chuz-Life
TruthHurts

TruthHurts, I have read in now at least two of your recent (abortion related) debates where you make the claim that a human fetus is not "a human being." Do you think you can defend that claim in a debate?...

Life is Intelligently Designed

Envisage
v3nesl

This debate challenge has been forwarded to v3nesl. Leave a message if you need debate settings/parameters changed. Intelligent Design is an umbrella term, as it encompasses several methods, or attempts to demonstrate the intelligent design of life. Pro needs to present one or more of these arguments to fulfill their BoP to demonstrate the notion of intelligent design. The format is reversed, since the accepting party has the burden of proof, therefore: 10,000 Words, 72 hours. Rou...

MBTI Is Pseudoscience

BradK
ForSerious

Astrology or horoscopes are pseudoscience because they don't provide valid explanations and are easily debunkable. My claim is that Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is better classified under pseudoscience as well, rather than actual science.---MBTI 101:There are 4 cognitive functions and 2 temperaments:COGNITIVE FUNCTIONS:- Thinking (T) (judging)- Feeling (F)(judging)- Sensing (S) (perceiving)- Intuition (N)(perceiving)

Is the universe making God ?

escape3
KhalifV

Debate Is the universe making God ? The fundamental and minutely small particles or energies that exist can be called quantum stuff. When we view the universe in our mind we can see it is a vast place full of quantum stuff. Within this vast quantum stuff we can see that parts have combined in a way that allows the assemblage to be conscious. These conscious assemblages of quantum stuff "flick" in and out of existence and are probably scattered throughout the quantum stuff whole. They also have...
