Earth is a spinning ball.

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. ...

Round 1 - Acceptance Round 2 - Opening Argument Round 3 - Rebuttal Round 4 - 2nd Argument/More Rebuttal Round 5 - 3rd Argument/More Rebuttal...

Over half of all reported rapes are likely false

I_am_Spartacus
Death23

Round 1. Acceptance Round 2-4. Arguments and rebuttals. Round 5. Closing argument with no rebuttals. I believe that there is now mounting evidence which suggest that false reporting of rape is indeed very high. The lack of thorough studies and societal will to explore the real extent of false rape reports notwithstanding, there are already many in-depth studies by independent judges and prosecutors which conclusively show that reported rapes to the police are fraught with false claims, very...

Should Animals Be Used for Scientific and Commercial Testing?

Lee001
lannan13

Simple debate. Definitions: *Animal testing: Animal testing, also known as animal experimentation, animal research, and in vivo testing, is the use of non-human animals in experiments (although some research about animals involves only natural behaviors or pure observation, such as a mouse running a maze or field studies of chimp troops). (https://www.google.com/searchq=Animal+testing#q=Animal+testing+definition) *Scientific Testing:principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of...

The earth is a spherical shape.

Edlvsjd
WaraiOtoko

Pro, please provide proof that the earth is not flat. Bop is on pro. Proof must not depend on the first assumption that it is a sphere. Proof must be reprovable with common sense and everyday observations and experimentation recorded anyway. Any media publicly available is useable. Sources can include anything until the opposition proves them unreliable recources, or the claim is false. I hope pro accepts this debate, I feel this is the most important conspiracy. It proves the bible t...
