The Earth is flat

Cat47
Edlvsjd

In this debate, I will be challenging debate.org's favorite flat Earther Edlvsjd to another debate on the shape of the Earth. The rules are simple. 1. First round is for acceptance only. 2. Second round is for arguments only. No rebuttals, because that is for the third round. 3. No new arguments can be made in the third round. 4. Show some proof for your arguments......

Is the Earth flat?

SilverishGoldNova

This is an argument that doesn't mean anything. That is to say, I do not expect trolling, yelling, screaming, etc. This is a serious conversation and I expect all commentators to act like responsible adults. Failing, that I expect you to act like responsible children. I'd like to request a couple favors of SilverishGoldNova, as I decided to start this debate upon reading the forum thread in the science section: 1. Please do not state that "Since I have not rebutted your arguments, x y and z....

Evolution is Flawed

Microsuck

Hi, I'd first like to say that I'm not a professional Christian Apologist Scientis,t so if you want to really talk to someone who knows their stuff talk to them. I would like to cite the fallacies that neither of us should use and the arguments I suggest my opponent not use [http://www.logicalfallacies.info/] [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fallacies] [http://www.theskepticsguide.org/resources/logicalfallacies.aspx] [http://www.fallacyfiles.org/whatarff.html] [http://utminers.utep.edu/omwi...

The Hockey Stick is Bad Science

Thaumaturgy
RoyLatham

As a follow on to a recent comment Roy made in the Science forum on the topic of possible upcoming debates that a "narrow" "global warming" debate may be in order. He specifically posed the possibility of a debate on the Hockey Stick of Mann et al. (1998 et seq.)I propose to argue against the proposition that "The Hockey Stick is Bad Science". My position will be that the so called Hockey Stick graph as originally developed in 1998 by Mann,...

First round is acceptance only. Since jimtimmy so ardently believes that he is genetically superior to African Americans, I am sure that he will accept this debate....

Human Life Begins at Fertilization

JoshBrahm
e.gibson1987

I believe by the end of the fertilization process, (instigated by two human beings) what follows is this: a living, whole organism of the human species. I believe the entity is biologically alive. I believe the entity is a whole organism. I believe the entity is biologically human.There are still some who believe at least one of the statements I've just made are false. I welcome anybody who feels that way to debate the issue with me.While there's much more to the abo...
