DDO Tier Tournament 2-Flat Earth Theory vs Spherical Earth Theory


Pro will be providing evidence for Flat Earth Theory. Con will be provided evidence of a round Earth. The debate should be determined by preponderance of evidence.There are to be no semantics with the terms round Earth or flat Earth. Neither round Earth theory or Flat Earth theory doubt topographical differences.First round is for acceptance. P.s. Romanii wanted me to add this. Round earth theory doesn't necessarily mean a perfect sphere. Just like flat Earth theory wo...

Scientific evidence does not support Evolution


I will be arguing that that evolution has not been proven scientifically and any evidence used to support it could be reasonably explained from a creation viewpoint. Since the theory of evolution is taught in schools as science, and creation is presented as religious, the burden of proof is on con to show that evolution can and did happen. Science - Knowledge gained from observation, experimentation, and demonstration (Can be proven). Evidence - The available body of facts or information ind...

The Universe (time, space, matter) has always existed - no beginning.


There is no solid evidence that the Universe as we know it truly had a beginning. And it makes sense for it to be eternal. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. This means it had no beginning. I assert that this is true for the elemental properties of the Universe - including space, time, matter, and energy (STME). While we may be one of many versions of the Universes that has expanded and contracted, I find it more logical that at a base level STME has always existed. The argument of...

Over half of all reported rapes are likely false


Round 1. Acceptance Round 2-4. Arguments and rebuttals. Round 5. Closing argument with no rebuttals. I believe that there is now mounting evidence which suggest that false reporting of rape is indeed very high. The lack of thorough studies and societal will to explore the real extent of false rape reports notwithstanding, there are already many in-depth studies by independent judges and prosecutors which conclusively show that reported rapes to the police are fraught with false claims, very...

The chicken came first on the earth, not the egg


British researchers say the chicken must have come first as the formation of eggs is only possible thanks to a protein found in the chicken"s ovaries. "It had long been suspected that the egg came first but now we have the scientific proof that shows that in fact the chicken came first," said Dr Colin Freeman, from Sheffield University, who worked with counterparts at Warwick University. "The protein had been identified before and it was linked to egg formation but by examining it closely we h...
