Religion needs to go away, it is outdated.

Eye0pener
Emilrose

Religion was a way to explain life and things happening in and around it, before Science. However, now because of Science Religion is no longer needed. It fails in every aspect of giving answers on just about every thing. It makes smart people into beings that choose not to think for themselves and set all rational idea aside for a hand me down belief.....

Is Creationism true?

hielispace
Drillzack

The reason I think that Creationism is not correct is rather simple. If it were true, then the world we live in and the science would show very different results. For example: In the story of Noah's Ark. The ark is no where near big enough to fit even every family of spices let alone all of them. The amount of genetic disease that would occur due to incest would kill off everything. And if God used a miracle to prevent this, then the flood is pointless as he can just kill everything. Positive Cl...

DDO Tier Tournament 2-Flat Earth Theory vs Spherical Earth Theory

Wylted
Romanii

Pro will be providing evidence for Flat Earth Theory. Con will be provided evidence of a round Earth. The debate should be determined by preponderance of evidence.There are to be no semantics with the terms round Earth or flat Earth. Neither round Earth theory or Flat Earth theory doubt topographical differences.First round is for acceptance. P.s. Romanii wanted me to add this. Round earth theory doesn't necessarily mean a perfect sphere. Just like flat Earth theory wo...

Evolution by way of natural selection is a fact.

MagicAintReal
B0HICA

Because of demonstrable genetic, radiometric, and geologic evidence, evolution is a fact. Genetics show common ancestry among all life by demonstrating the same DNA between different species and even kingdoms. Radiometric dating shows time periods of fossils based on fixed atomic half lives that allow enough time for evolution to occur; this time frame matches the time it would take for the types of changes you would expect to see between fossils if evolution were true. Geology explains the...

cchavez
maknatbren

according to pbs.org the basic benefits of ivf are that it helps infertile parents have kids and to prevent birth defects. for that the reasoning for couples to undergo ivf is for them to have babies when they cant and to make sure that they get a healthy and strong baby. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/features/general-article/babies-pros-and-cons/...

ArgumentativeMan

For the purpose of the argument: Aliens - A species of extraterrestrial beings that possesses consciousness and are intelligent enough contact humans. Consciousness - The trait of being aware of one's surroundings. Intelligence - The ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills. I will be arguing that there is a high probability that aliens of the type I've described above exist in this Universe. Anyone willing to argue that aliens probably don't exist in our Universe, feel fre...

This is my 300th debate and I wanted to debate something ive always wanted to debate, whether or not cats are indeed liquids.

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...
