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....

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

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)

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.

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.

Ghosts: Real or Not?

superepicgirl
theterminator

I think ghosts are real, but they won't try to kill you or pull you under the bed or throw a television at you. The reason for this is because they do not have enough mass. You see, a man named Duncan MacDougall conducted a study about the weight of the soul, which has now been popularized as roughly 21 grams. However, Augustus P. Clarke found a fault in MacDougall's study: your body temperature rises just before death because your lungs can no longer maintain your blood's temperature, and the s...
