It is reasonable to accept the theory of evolution

No insults or ad hominem. 2. The scientific position that no thing can be proved 100% and can only be shown to be clo...

0.9999 recurring is equal to 1


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...

The Jesus of the Bible Probably Existed


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 –...

The Law of Parsimony Favors Intelligent Design - B


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...

South Park is better than Family guy


I strongly affirm that the television show, South Park is a better show than Family Guy. First Contention: south Park is has more episodes and seasons than family guy. family guy is currently showing the 8th season while southpark is showing the 13th. south park is able to use current events and turn them into a parody therefor more teenagers and adults watch the show. the seasons may not end because south park makes fun of current events. examples of this would be the episode about last nig...

The Geneis account of Creation should be read literally


I contend that the wording of Genesis within the context of the Bible does not allow for the Day Age Theory, the Gap Theory, or the Framework Hypothesis. For the purposes of this debate, I ask that scientific arguments be kept to a minimum. By this I mean that I do not wish to delve into a debate on carbon dating, the big bang, how to explain distant starlight, etc. I wish to stick to the Bible, its wording, and whether or not we can interpret the Creation week as anything other than 24 days...
