According to the Bible, the value of pi is only known to one digit.

mongeese
bigtree

The Bible is the Christian holy text. Pi is the ratio of a circle's diameter to its circumference. By "only known to one digit," I mean that the Bible shows that the Christian author evidently only knew pi to one digit, 3. My opponent will have the burden of proof to explain where the evidence exists to affirm the resolution, and how it does so. Good luck to my future opponent....

The Big Bang theory is true and accurate

chewster911

Now, i want to have a rational debate about the Big Bang theory. I will argue that the Big Bang happened nearly 14 billion years ago. I don't want an argument about deities that supposedly created the universe or other irrelevant arguments to the topic. I want this to be a science debate. Burden of proof is shared,but it will mostly be on me. 1st round is acceptance 2nd round will be for opening statements and arguments 3rd round will be for rebuttals and cross-examinations 4th round will...

Tatarize

First let me say Patrick Henry kicked my butt in that last debate. It was my first attempt and my rookie status shined brightly. I have learned a lot from that debate. The worst of it all is that I didn't even get the topic of the debate right. Patrick is absolutely right that the scientific community is well and in tact and has no credibility problems. I can accept most or even all of the data and research collected by scientists with regard to climate change. Now let me see if I can get t...

HghDnsty

The universe - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universe Definite starting point in time - Basically, this comes from the idea that if we had a timeline of the universe, time would start at the front of the timeline (definite starting point), with no events in the universe before it, and ending at the present day, with the future yet to come. If you have any questions about the definitions, or want to get anything at all about this debate clarified, please ask me in the comments. Thank you to wh...

Evolution: The ramfications of multiple mutations And the necessity for Informatio.

SX23
J.Kenyon

Despite the current beliefs on the Evolution theory, this one's is not as stable as we were lead to believe. The following arguments are quite logic and do no require any specific scientific knowledge apart from bases in anatomy and biology. The basis of the theory clearly state a starting point from where a mutation occurs and cause radical or simples changes in the individual. Due to Darwin lack of recent knowledge into anatomy, specifically the way that organs interact with each others, his...
