Humans are responsible for global warming

CodyNiskanen

It's been said that humans are responsible for "Global Warming" due to our carbon emissions and high atmospheric pollution rate. While I agree that we are polluting the atmosphere at an extremely high rate, I disagree that, our carbon emissions are to blame. According to Science Magazine, measurements of ice core samples show that over the last four climactic cycles (past 240,000 years), periods of natural global warming preceded global increases in CO2. Also, A 2005 study published in Nature fo...

Human dominance on Planet Earth, will soon be superseded by sentient, electromechanical devices.

Sonofcharl
JP1016

Human dominance is waning. Younger generations are already slaves to electronic devices. How long before we no longer call the shots. Fear not though. This is not stuff of horror movies or nightmares. This is simply evolution in progress. Rules: 5 open rounds. Use your own brain power. No referencing other peoples work/theories. 100 words max, per round. (Not 8000 characters) Enjoy!...

Is Ice A Mineral?

Emelin

I started this debate to prove everyone my point. My position is that ice is NOT a mineral. Yes, it has all the requirements, but it should still be a mineral in ALL temperatures and forms. A form of ice is water, which is NOT a mineral....

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 earth is flat.

KthulhuHimself
Edlvsjd

The rules are simple. My opponent accepts the challenge in round one, and presents ONE of his strongest arguments in favour of the flat earth. Round two is where I present my opening argument, and in which my opponent attempts to rebut it. In round three, I will present my rebuttal for my opponent's strongest argument, and my opponent presents him counter-rebuttal for my refutation. Round four is where I present my counter-rebuttal for my opponent's refutation, and since round one is more or les...

Creationism is far more superior to Evolution

ElijahTheRight
Zaephou

I would like to thank my opponent for participating in this debate. I am a Christian, but I love science. I would like to start off by asking this, "How can this perfect (as in perfect chemistry, perfect cells, perfect reproductive system among living things, etc.) world come from something accidental?" I I believe in a Creator because that is the only reasonable thing we have. Why are thre exactly two genders? Why Is Earth in its perfect place, a perfect distancee from the Sun....
