The earth is a spherical shape.

Edlvsjd
WaraiOtoko

Pro, please provide proof that the earth is not flat. Bop is on pro. Proof must not depend on the first assumption that it is a sphere. Proof must be reprovable with common sense and everyday observations and experimentation recorded anyway. Any media publicly available is useable. Sources can include anything until the opposition proves them unreliable recources, or the claim is false. I hope pro accepts this debate, I feel this is the most important conspiracy. It proves the bible t...

Abortion

lannan13

Science proves that human life begins at the moment of conception. Being so, it's the most innocent form of life. Why then should it be legal to kill that child, who is indeed A human being, Living and growing inside of it's mothers womb? Should not all human life be respected and upheld to the same dignity? Does not every human being truly have A "right to life"?...

Can anything with mass time travel( meaning from one point in time to another instantaneously)

ThinkAboutIt_ReallyThink
Mysery

In this we will be debating whether time travel is possible or not, this is purely theoretically based. unless the pro does what scientists have failed to do and prove that it is possible with hard evidence. I believe that time travel is impossible so I am the con, one reason I believe it is impossible is because if we had we would have meet someone who has traveled back in time. Yes this is an intentionally easy to debate so that we can get a smooth start. I will have better evidence as we cont...

Should Animal Testing in Labs be Banned?

nwm200
lannan13

Animal testing is cruel and inhumane. While it may help us find cures for diseases, animal living systems are too different from ours to give us relevant results. There are other ways to find cures for diseases. Animals are our pets, our friends. Why torture them (These tests can sometimes kill the animal slowly and painfully) when they have feelings too?...

Should Animals Be Used for Scientific and Commercial Testing?

Lee001
lannan13

Simple debate. Definitions: *Animal testing: Animal testing, also known as animal experimentation, animal research, and in vivo testing, is the use of non-human animals in experiments (although some research about animals involves only natural behaviors or pure observation, such as a mouse running a maze or field studies of chimp troops). (https://www.google.com/searchq=Animal+testing#q=Animal+testing+definition) *Scientific Testing:principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of...

The Universe is 13.8 billion years old

TheRussian
ViceRegent

I will not be arguing that the universe is exactly 13.8 billion years as this is very difficult. However, I will be arguing that the "scientific worldview" of the age of the universe is very reasonable and that the age of the universe can be measured in millions and billions of years, not thousands. I expect (though not require) that my opponent will be a creationist who will be arguing that the universe (and Earth) is several thousands years old, and my opponent may present his/her arguments...

Has anyone ever observed macro evolution taking place?

MagicAintReal

The scientific method requires observation, testability and repeatability. Has anyone observed macro evolution taking place? If not, it is not science. Please only credential scientists with at least a BS answer....

For atheists, is the unverse infinately old or did it arise out of nothing?

ViceRegent
TheRussian

Atheists cannot allow anything outside of the universe to cause it to come into existence. Thus, they are left with the universe being infinitely old or that it arose out of nothing. Either way, they believe contrary to science, for the 2nd Law of Thermo says the universe cannot be infinitely old and the 1st Law of Thermo says it could not have arisen out of nothing. Atheism must be wrong....

Flat Earth Theory vs Ball Earth Theory

BonoboMoon
Circle_Craft

There is more scientific evidence supporting that the earth is flat than there is evidence supporting it is a ball. We will be debating which is more likely. Given the information which has been collected, is it more like that; The earth is flat? The earth is a ball? I will be arguing for flat earth....

The Universe (time, space, matter) has always existed - no beginning.

Channe
Sunfire315

There is no solid evidence that the Universe as we know it truly had a beginning. And it makes sense for it to be eternal. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. This means it had no beginning. I assert that this is true for the elemental properties of the Universe - including space, time, matter, and energy (STME). While we may be one of many versions of the Universes that has expanded and contracted, I find it more logical that at a base level STME has always existed. The argument of...
