Global Warming is Man-Made

16kadams
RoyLatham

==Clarification== I will be arguing that mankind IS the cause of global warming, my opponent will be arguing that mankind is NOT the main driver of modern climate change. My opponent, therefore, is arguing that the theory of anthropogenic climate change is incorrect. This is pretty straightforward. Abbreviations which might be used: AGW -- Anthropogenic global warming CR -- cosmic ray[s] TSI -- Total solar irradiation MWP -- Medieval Warm Period SSN -- Sun spot number PDO --...

IVF Debate

IVF is beneficial is a variety of ways. IVF is able to allow those who are unable to have a baby, have a child if they desire, such as single women, infertile women and men, and same-sex couples. Those who are unable to have a child without the assistance from medical professionals will most likely resort to IVF if they are determined to have their own children. (La Jolla, "Why Choose IVF?")...

Is it reasonable to question the theory of evolution?

Conspiracyrisk
JayShay

This is a re-do of a previous debate I had with Jay Shay. We would have finished the debate, but life got in the way and I had to forfeit the last two rounds. We will simply be copy-pasting the arguments we made. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ For this debate, I will not necessarily be trying to prove evolution is false, nor will I be trying to prove there is a god. For this debate, I will simply be trying to prove that it is reas...

Are Penguins Ducks?

IshanKohli
Zarium

Penguins are indeed ducks. Such surety of the matter comes with the support of the very definition of a duck: "A waterbird with a broad blunt bill, short legs, webbed feet, and a waddling gait." This definition from "Science and Society: Understanding Scientific Methodology, Energy, Climate, and Sustainability" by Eric S. Swanson states the very characteristics that define what a duck is. Looking at the common attributes of penguins, it is evident that penguins have the very same attributes that...

Earth is a spinning ball.

Edlvsjd
mangolife23

I hold that the earth is not a spinning globe as modern science claims. I am looking for empirical evidence that we live in a ball spinning at 1,000mph, tilted at a 66.6° angle, travelling at 66,000 mph in a 600,000 mile race track around the sun in space. Pro must use round one to provide such evidence, and forfeit the last round. Any media publicly available may be used until said media or it's source is proven false or unreliable. ...

It does not matter if you are atheistic or agnostic or any other thing, but you MUST believe Darwinian evolution. Good luck!
