0.9999 recurring is equal to 1

Logic_on_rails
DrStrangeLuv

Intro The 0.999 recurring is to mean a continuous stream of nines, ever ending. I assume people know what I mean here. The Pro's burden is simple, to prove that 0.99 recurring is indeed equal to 1. I'm looking to see if there's any challengers out there. And before anyone gets at all tricky (sneaky, making new rules), don't get ridiculously tricky, it's also of course in base 10 that we're talking (no base 16 etc.) . Finally not every dash (-) or such is a minu...

I am wagering the benefits that come from winning this debate on the conjecture that this debate will receive 10,000 views before it enters the voting stage.The time to argue is 24 hours, so it should take too long to get through the debate.Good luck to you and me. May the gods battle and show favor toward whomever slaughters the most goats.Kittens! ...

It is reasonable to accept the theory of evolution

Yvette
GodSands

Thank you for accepting this debate. If you accept this debate, you agree to the rules and formats of the debate. Breaking the rules and formats of the debate is considered forfeiture. This is in response to my opponent challenging Debate.org's atheists. I carry most of the burden of proof, however, my opponent must defend his position that evolution is untrue. Rules: 1. No insults or ad hominem. 2. The scientific position that no thing can be proved 100% and can only be shown to be clo...

InquireTruth
TombLikeBomb

Resolved: The Law of Parsimony Favors Intelligent Design Over Alternative Theories. Please abstain from the use of semantics. I would like to thank my future opponent for his/her willingness to debate this topic. For the sake of clarity I will briefly summarize the rule of parsimony and Intelligent Design, and then follow with my numerically listed points. The Rule of Parsimony: Essentially, the simplest theory wins. That is to say, the theory with the same explanatory power and least...

The Jesus of the Bible Probably Existed

InquireTruth
JustCallMeTarzan

I will make my case and address the most common arguments presented by the mythological Jesus camp. The Historicity of Jesus as reported by extrabiblical sources, biblical sources, and basic logic: 1. Tacitus was an early Roman historian who wrote early in the 2nd century. In his writings we have a reference to Jesus as the founder of Christianity and his being crucified under the thumb of Pontius Pilot. Unfortunately much of Tacitus' work has been lost, including portions from 29-32 AD –...

Religion is overall beneficial on the human race.

1. Is illogical The conception of God that most people around the world have simply cannot exist. First, let me define what most people think of as God: An all-powerful being, who created the universe, who is all-good. Now, you would think that a universe created by such a being would be a wonderful place to live in. Of course, as we all know, this is not the case. Innocent children get raped by pedophiles. Criminal CEO's rob people of billions and get away with it. People in third world countr...

The Bible Qualifies as a Collection of Fairy Tales - E

JustCallMeTarzan
cto09

The proposition on offer is that the Bible qualifies as a collection of fairy tales. The letter is to disambiguate from other versions of the same debate. Obviously by collection, I mean that there are more than one in the same book ("something that is collected; a group of objects or an amount of material accumulated in one location, esp. for some purpose or as a result of some process" - Dictionary.com). And by fairy tale, I mean the following: Fairy Tale: –noun 1. a story, usually fo...
