The quantum fluctuations arguement dissproves the existence of God.

JimShady
cakerman

Whenever a theist puts forth the question "how does something come from nothing?", atheists have a very scientific and seemingly full proof answer of quantum fluctuations. Quantum fluctuations are "random fluctuations can produce matter and energy out of nothingness." [1] This is a source used from the seemingly atheist person I am debating. The article says that because of these quantum fluctuations, the universe/big bang can produce itself without need of a God. The article states "The Big...

Earth is spherical/spheroid shaped

Edlvsjd

I will challenge Edlvsjd for this debate as he seems to be one of the actually serious flat earthers and not a troll. He will argue Earth is flat while I shall argue it's round, good luck! Rules 1) No trolling 2) No ad hominem 3) No profanity 4) Sources should be given 5) Burden of proof is shared, we both must prove what shape Earth is, is it a sphere/spheroid planet or disk/infinite plane? Rounds 1) Acceptance 2) Opinion with your evidence and sources 3) Rebuttals 4) Defence...

Edlvsjd

In this debate, I will be challenging debate.org's favorite flat Earther Edlvsjd to another debate on the shape of the Earth. The rules are simple. 1. First round is for acceptance only. 2. Second round is for arguments only. No rebuttals, because that is for the third round. 3. No new arguments can be made in the third round. 4. Show some proof for your arguments......

Should Animal Testing be Legal?

Twiggy1612
Plasmastrike

Human beings act on instinct. Animals do not have that ability. That is a well known fact. However, does this simple ability distinguish us so much that while you are barely allowed touch another human, you can do completely immoral experiments to animals? I hope not, my friends. While I agree that for diseases such as Swine Flu, animals should be treated on, I find it cruel to test in perfectly healthy animals. I hope the audience can see my point on this matter....

Round 1 is just for you to accept. In round 1, type that you accept my debate and nothing more. Round 2 is opening statements and primary claims. The third round is the main one, with most of your points/ rebuttals. The fourth is final statements and conclusions. The participant shall agree to no ad hominem attacks. Thank you....

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 --...

Existence of Creator- Yes or No, BoP on Pro

JimShady
QueenDaisy

I've looked through your profile/voting log and it seems you are firmly atheist. Therefore I challenge you to a friendly debate: I must prove that a creator exists, and you must try to prove that a creator does not exist. BoP is only on me. Round 1: will be for acceptance Round 2: Arguments, no rebuttals Round 3: Rebuttals, no new arguments. Please accept, this will be a quick debate and fun too....
