The earth is probably less than 10,000 years old.

GarretKadeDupre
bluesteel

In this debate, Pro will argue the evidence that the earth is younger than 10,000 years, and Con will argue the evidence that the earth is older than 10,000 years. The debate is to be determined by the preponderance of evidence. Years are taken as units of time in the conventional sense as presently measured, not in an allegorical or poetic sense.The claim that the earth is less than 10,000 years old is part of Young Earth Creationism (YEC).

Is light visible or invisible?

Furyan5
KostasT.1526

The general belief is that light, specifically visible light, is visible. Surprisingly, the book of general ignorance states that light is actually invisible. I tend to agree. Would anyone care to debate the issue? Only one rule. A dictionary definition can't be used as proof itself. https://books.google.co.za/books?dq=if+light+itself+was+visible+it+would+form+a+fog+before+your+eyes&hl=en&id=uCgRY6llQpYC&lpg=PA115&ots=L6qEIRS2ri&pg=PA115&sa=X&sig=CQ8sQuLzcVOxQ7dQC0TKahBTHro&source=bl&ved...

There is no evidence that humans share a common ancestor with apes

Abeceda
IBeatMyMeats

My position is that there is not one piece of evidence in support of the idea that humans share a common ancestor with apes - that can not be interpreted in another way. To clarify my position even further, I shall provide an example. Homology, which is considered evidence of such common ancestry, might equally be evidence of common factory (i.e. that the similarities are not due to a shared ancestor, but a shared maker). If you disagree with this, and believe that you have definitive evid...

JimShady
QueenDaisy

I've looked through your profile/voting log and it seems you are firmly atheist. Therefore I challenge you to a friendly debate: I must prove that a creator exists, and you must try to prove that a creator does not exist. BoP is only on me. Round 1: will be for acceptance Round 2: Arguments, no rebuttals Round 3: Rebuttals, no new arguments. Please accept, this will be a quick debate and fun too....

Existing scientific evidence justifies believe in God

kenballer
MagicAintReal

In this debate, I will be showing how scientific evidence already demonstrates the existence of a Theistic God that is consistent with the Judeo-Christian God concept.I will be in the affirmative of this proposition while my opponent will be on the negative.The Theist God in question ,within the confines of this debate, will be a Personal cause who is the creator (i.e. Immaterial) and sustainer ( i.e. ruler) of the Universe and is omnipotent , omnipre...
