The earth is probably less than 10,000 years old.

GarretKadeDupre
bluesteel

In this debate, Pro will argue the evidence that the earth is younger than 10,000 years, and Con will argue the evidence that the earth is older than 10,000 years. The debate is to be determined by the preponderance of evidence. Years are taken as units of time in the conventional sense as presently measured, not in an allegorical or poetic sense.The claim that the earth is less than 10,000 years old is part of Young Earth Creationism (YEC). In this debat...

The universe is finite.

Nymphomaniac
Ajabi

Universe refers to all of spacetime and everything therein, including all the planets, stars, galaxies, etc. By finite, I mean the universe is neither infinitely large nor infinitely old. The first round is for acceptance. The second is for arguments. The third is for rebuttals....

Global Warming

I recently saw a statistic that 1 in 4 Americans were skeptical of global warming and its damage to the world. TO be quite frank I found this disturbing and I would like to challenge anyone who believes Global warming is a farce to debate this prudent issue....

Math Debate #1

RevL8ion
stylishBOY

The title's pretty self-explanatory. Because I'm a whole lot better at mathematics than debating, and there's really nothing math-related here, I'd like to start perhaps the first math debate in all of DDO. Here are the rules.Oh wait, first, I'd like to tell you to do something: Hold your tongue with your fingers and say "I like to math debate." If you know what I mean...anyway:The first round is always acceptance only...

Should human cloning be legal? Is it ethical?

People tend to say that human cloning would be unethical, and this is why it isn't legal in most countries on Earth. I don't see it, and I'm ready to give somebody a chance to prove me wrong....

Atheists block human progress, hold back science, and pose the greatest threat to science

itsnobody
dtaylor971

Although I can't be certain of everything, I can be 100% certain that atheists block human progress, hold back science, and pose the greatest threat to science (and mankind as a whole). My position is pro/for (obviously). I'm hoping that someone (preferably a non-Theist) accepts the challenge. First round - Introductions/Clarifications Rest of the rounds - Arguments/Rebuttals...

Evolution (Pro) vs Creationism (Con)

Mags2

First round will be acceptance, to make it fair. Forfeiting will be an automatic loss. Anyone who wants to seriously defend creationism (Christian Bible) should accept this debate. Good luck!...

renewable energy is the best solution for energy worldwide.

jakemg
rikomalpense

The first argument is for a short definition on what you are supporting. Renewable energy is defined as "energy that comes from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat."[1] The four of these sources (rain, tide, and wave fall under hydro energy) together can power the globe cleanly.

Imabench's 300th Debate!!! Resolved: Cats are Liquids

imabench
Magicr

This is my 300th debate and I wanted to debate something ive always wanted to debate, whether or not cats are indeed liquids. We all have that one crazy belief that no one else thinks is true, this is my crazy belief. Me and Magicr agreed to debate this, and yes it is only 2 rounds long. Definitions: Liquid: An object with a fixed mass and fixed volume, but does not have a fixed shape and instead match the shape of the container they are poured into. Cats: Demons sent to Earth fro...
