Earth is flat

It's almost 2017 and my opponent still believes that the earth is a flying ball! I intend to show my opponent that the earth is indeed relatively flat, excluding those mountains etc. My opponent is new to DDO, so I'll not be strict on structure, he can just freestyle....

Do you believe it possible to live in the future and past at the same time?

We classify time as now, but what if we are living in the past and future at the same time? And I know that grammar uses sentences to form present tense, I know Minkowski's diagram has a world line and and somewhere below the worldline is a here and now. We use the term present and now because we dont understand time. But lets say im eating an apple. As youd consider the present, every bite i take and swallow, would then be considered the past. For an additional bite i didnt know i was going tak...

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...

There is most likely an intelligent creator of the universe

Wylted
tejretics

Okay Tejretics chose these judges for the most part, I just agreed. I finally found time to put some effort and energy into debating. I'm sick of seeing the God debates and even sicker of seeing people who actually specialize in nothing but God debates. With that being said, one of you guys with no life and way too much free time who spend all day debating the same topic over and over are welcome to apply in the comments. I'll accept the best opponents, from those who specialize in this ty...

Humans are both physically and mentally superior to most animals.

Logicality1
atomicgunner

Human beings are superior to most other life on Earth because we fight and think in a different way than most animals. Mentally, we exceed all life easily because we don't need to do things like hunt, or constantly work for food. Since the first easy sources of food, humans haven't needed to put in as much time or energy hunting for food, instead using that time to think and plan. Our brains are also designed to adapt much more easily than most other species. Physically, we also beat most animal...

Environmental Protection

Kescarte_DeJudica
Cat47

In this debate, I will be challenging the much esteemed Cat47 to a rigorous debate on the subject of Environmental Protection. Here are a few ground rules: 1. The first round is for acceptance only. 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...
