Earth is flat

Edlvsjd
Youngastronomer

It's almost 2017 and my opponent still believes that the earth is a flying ball! I intend to show my opponent that the earth is indeed relatively flat, excluding those mountains etc. My opponent is new to DDO, so I'll not be strict on structure, he can just freestyle....

imabench
Magicr

This is my 300th debate and I wanted to debate something ive always wanted to debate, whether or not cats are indeed liquids.

Definitions: Liquid: An object with a fixed mass and fixed volume, but does not have a fixed shape and instead match the shape of the container they are poured into. Cats: Demons sent to Earth fro...

Do you believe it possible to live in the future and past at the same time?

We classify time as now, but what if we are living in the past and future at the same time? And I know that grammar uses sentences to form present tense, I know Minkowski's diagram has a world line and and somewhere below the worldline is a here and now. We use the term present and now because we dont understand time. But lets say im eating an apple. As youd consider the present, every bite i take and swallow, would then be considered the past. For an additional bite i didnt know i was going tak...

The earth is spherical

Edlvsjd
Mharman

The perpetuation of ball earth theory, just like Evolutionary Theory and the Big Bang Theory, has become more of a religion, an orthodoxy, than a science. People are expected not to question it, no matter what, at the risk of losing their job, breaking their careers, losing friends, being shunned by family, and being ridiculed by anyone who refuses to think for themselves. If anyone attempts to present scientific evidence contrary to the popularly held view, it is immediately dismissed as "consp...

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). In this debat...

Human life begins at conception (sperm meets egg)

JimShady
TheMarketLibertarian

A debate on whether human life begins at conception or not. I will be arguing that it does, and the Con will be argue that human life begins at some other point, you can pick. Burden of Proof will be on me especially. Con doesn't necessarily have to prove human life begins at his proposed point, but it would only help his case. I want the format to go like this: Round 1: Acceptance, and please state when life begins (or if you are undecided) Round 2: Arguments. Round 3: Additional ar...
