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...

Evolution is not scientific, therefore it should not be taught in schools.

For something to be scientific, it has to be observable, repeatable, and testable. Evolutionists admit that you can not observe evolution because it is to slow. You definitely can not repeat evolution. And how can you test evolution? Evolution is not fact, it is a religion....

Global warming is likely (and mostly) anthropogenic

This is for Subutai's environmental tournament. In this debate, I am for the resolution. The BOP will be even since this is a contested issue--BOP shall not be negotiated. The debate structure is first round acceptance, second round arguments (no rebuttals), third round rebuttals/defense, fourth round rebuttals/defense. My opponent is familiar with the wording, and definitions are not needed. Have fun!...

Evolutionism Vs. Creationism

JasperFrancisShickadance
nonprophet

Pro = for Creationism * Con = for Evolutionism This will NOT be about the Big Bang or Beginning of Life, although Creationism explains all that together and Evolution is hard to believe without knowing where it started. Please don't be close-minded. I'd like to see a logical argument where we each show evidence and reason for our cases. Each round will bring it's own topics to hand, I'm sure :) 1st of all, I believe Creationism relies on the Bible (vice versa). 2nd, you cannot deny that Cr...

Christianity

firemonkey6775

let me say this first i this debate is not here to talk about evolution vs. Christianity it is here to debate christianity. Not the church and its actions. this is for the relgious piece only refering to the bible and JESUS. My view on christianity is that though it is an exclusive relgion in the fact that it asks you to dedicate your life to god. I believe christianity to be a great pro every lesson JESUS taught was positive and always had a good meaning. if everyone were to live by the ten...

Global warming is nothing more than a natural warming cycle, and not is due to CO2 emissions.

JasonMc

It would seem that the consensus among academic institutions worldwide would be enough to persuade most people that global warming is real, that it is a problem, and that it is a direct result of human-produced carbon emissions into the Earth's atmosphere, but many are still not convinced. The skeptical argument seems to be that the Earth is so vast that mankind could never be any real threat to it, and / or all of the evidence presented by the world's most prominent scientific minds only points...

The Earth is Flat

Mangani
sadolite

Though I am posting this debate, it is in response to other debates and comments made by my opponent. Because it is generally accepted scientific, logical, and rational thought that the Earth is spherical in shape (though not a perfect sphere), my opponent asserts that the Earth is flat, and therefore the burden of proof is on him. Let me define "flat" as it is generally accepted in "flat Earth" philosophies. It is generally believed in "flat Earth" philosophies that the Earth is a plane. Th...

Evolution is real.

travelman
FritzStammberger

Evolution is, overall, a well proven theory. Before we officially begin, a "theory" is defined as "a re-proven and reiterated idea." In fact, evolution is one of the most well formulated theories in all of science. Anyway, why it is real: Chimpanzees/monkeys and other primates have had close genetic similarities and behaviors as many humans. Also, many systems of the human anatomy work virtually the same. For instance, humans have been proven to have the strongest immunities of all living beings...
