Evolution should not be taught as a fact in American public schools.

Okay, I think that Darwin's Theory of Evolution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_Evolution) should not be taught as absolute, factual science in American public schools. To start with, because no reason has been given as to why it should be taught, I will say that when you have no reason to teach something in a public school, it should not be taught....

Life is Intelligently Designed

Envisage

This debate challenge has been forwarded to v3nesl. Leave a message if you need debate settings/parameters changed. Intelligent Design is an umbrella term, as it encompasses several methods, or attempts to demonstrate the intelligent design of life. Pro needs to present one or more of these arguments to fulfill their BoP to demonstrate the notion of intelligent design. The format is reversed, since the accepting party has the burden of proof, therefore: 10,000 Words, 72 hours. Rou...

The human eye evolved.

Thanks to my opponent if he accepts, not sure if this is the evolution debate you wanted, though you did state the complexity of the eye as an indication of an intelligent designer. Next one can be your choosing. ;) Essentially I will show that the eye evolved, using the human eye, and eyes found in nature in general, to show the stages of development and how relatively easily it occurs. I assert that an Intelligent Designer, by definition, would not incorporate flaws into a system, as t...

The Theory of Evolution is a lie. We did not come from monkeys.

I can't imagine how you can believe we came from monkeys. doesn't it just make more sense to just say we adapted? Just because we changed our environment doesn't mean we automativally can mutate ourselves and just "evolve." When people get mutetions, they suffer from various illnesses. Can you name me ONE mutation that is positive? Just one. That's all I'm asking for. You can't, simply because there is none. We are made in the image of God, our heavenly father, so when genes in our body changes...

Macro Evolution has been proved beyond reasonable doubt

Relax
BennyW

I saw your previous debate with Alexander_The_Great (Here: http://www.debate.org/debates/Evolution-is-a-scientific-fact/1/) and must admit, that even though I accept evolution, I think you won the debate because of his lack of convincing argument and data on Pro's side. I also felt that the title and some of the other things wasn't properly set up. For example, I wont argue that macro evolution is a scientific fact. While in colloquial use, the word "fact" might describe the evolutionary the...
