According to my own opinions, the end of a black hole could be a white hole. A black hole sucks in everything, including light and gravity. On the other hand, a white hole spits everything out, also including light and gravity....

Fact 1: Gravity pulls things towards the centre of the Earth Fact 2: The moon is affected by Earth's gravity Fact 3: The moon is not at the centre of the Earth. Therefore, by the current definition, gravity is false....

Evolution and Irreducible Complexity

pr.Daniel_Jordan
SirCrona

My fellow debaters, I come here today to make an argument for intelligent design. I guess you would like to know where I am coming from, and my position. When I began my studies in the early 90s, I fully believed that the theory of evolution was capable of explaining the biological systems that we observe in nature. With that position, I started teaching biology at the University of Oslo. During this time, I read a lot of scientific literature, especially biology. I came across the book that...

Homosexuals are born tha...

DDO Tier Tournament 2-Flat Earth Theory vs Spherical Earth Theory

Wylted
Romanii

Pro will be providing evidence for Flat Earth Theory. Con will be provided evidence of a round Earth. The debate should be determined by preponderance of evidence.There are to be no semantics with the terms round Earth or flat Earth. Neither round Earth theory or Flat Earth theory doubt topographical differences.First round is for acceptance. P.s. Romanii wanted me to add this. Round earth theory doesn't necessarily mean a perfect sphere. Just like flat Earth theory wo...
