Santa Claus exists.

He tied me up to a chair and did weird things to me. It was magical, just like he is -The...

The Earth orbits the Sun

yoshidino
Rubikx

Early scientists once held the geocentric position that the Sun orbited the earth. Later, Darwin introduced the heliocentric model, Earth rotating the sun. This model was excepted and the other discarded and thought prehistoric and pretty much as stupid as the Earth being flat. My question: What PROOF do you have to confirm the heliocentric model? Because I have proof that completely debunks it. And please mention the pendulum....

0.9999 (repeating) = 1

TheTom
Jzyehoshua

Normally debates are about opinions. This is about fact. I maintain that 0.9999 (going on forever) is the same thing mathematically, and realistically as 1. I expect my opponent to have an understanding of math, such as basic algebra, and rules of infinity. First round is for acceptance AND posting arguments. For the sake of simplicity, the term 0.999... will mean 0.999 repeating. FAIR WARNING: This is a mathematical fact. The evidence is on my side. If you choose to accept this argument, you...

Dinasour soft tissues and DNA prove their recent existance

creationtruth
PotBelliedGeek

Dinosaurs are claimed to have gone extinct 65 million years ago. Recent findings of soft tissues in fossils, such as the 2012 discovery of DNA, and even unfossilized dinosaur bone nullify the idea of their ancient extinction. These findings fit just fine in the Biblical Creation model but contradict the geologic column/evolution models. Round 1 - Acceptance Round 2 - Opening Arguments Round 3 - Rebuttals/Closing Statements...
