Cats: Demons sent to Earth fro...

Mister_Man
Aerogant

I saw this earlier and found it really interesting, and was hoping someone would challenge my point of view, which is that Earth will end one day.Anyway, first round can be for acceptance or clarifying terms or even your beginning arguments if you wish.Earth - This should be obvious, but we are referring to the planet we currently live on, 3rd rock from the sun.End - Cease to exist.

There is no scientific evidence to support evolution

LittleBallofHATE
Samreay

What I mean by evolution, is Darwin's theory of descent with modification or macroevolution, as it's commonly referred to. In other words, the theory that all life has a common ancestor. Con must accept the burden of proof. He must prove that there is real scientific evidence for this theory. Four rounds. Acceptance. Opening arguments. Rebuttals. Closing argument. I look forward to this debate. Good luck....

Should Animals Be Used for Scientific or Commercial Testing?

Animalana
a_mysterious_stranger

Animal testing should not be used. For one, scientists still test it on humans anyways. Two, animals have a different anatomy when compared to humans, causing their result to be different from that of a human. Animal testing is cruelty to animals, yet scientists get away with it. The Animal Welfare Act allows animals to be burned, shocked, poisoned, isolated, starved, forcibly restrained, addicted to drugs, and brain-damaged. No experiment is prohibited, and painkillers aren't required. Even if...

Dinasour soft tissues and DNA prove their recent existance

creationtruth
PotBelliedGeek

Dinosaurs are claimed to have gone extinct 65 million years ago. Recent findings of soft tissues in fossils, such as the 2012 discovery of DNA, and even unfossilized dinosaur bone nullify the idea of their ancient extinction. These findings fit just fine in the Biblical Creation model but contradict the geologic column/evolution models. Round 1 - Acceptance Round 2 - Opening Arguments Round 3 - Rebuttals/Closing Statements...

AngelofDeath
Sswdwm

Be it resolved that: the zombie apocalypse will happen. I would like this to be a serious debate, so no trolling please. My only rule is that my opponent cannot use Max Brooks as a legitimate source, since he doesn't have a PhD on zombies. If this does happen, however, I request that voters please take note and vote for me. Format: Round 1, acceptance Round 2, claims Round 3, rebuttals Round 4, rebuild and voting issues Although this is a serious debate, i want all involved t...
