The earth is a spherical shape.

Edlvsjd
WaraiOtoko

Pro, please provide proof that the earth is not flat. Bop is on pro. Proof must not depend on the first assumption that it is a sphere. Proof must be reprovable with common sense and everyday observations and experimentation recorded anyway. Any media publicly available is useable. Sources can include anything until the opposition proves them unreliable recources, or the claim is false. I hope pro accepts this debate, I feel this is the most important conspiracy. It proves the bible t...

Scientific evidence does not support Evolution

Cook123
NumingDisasterAnon

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...

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

Wylted
Romanii

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...

The World is Flat

TheGodson
Edlvsjd

I believe that the world is round. It has been proven throughout history and science. There are pictures from outer space confirming this. It is seen all over the internet and in text books. All the rules and discoveries of science revolve around the fact that the world is round. Equations for calculating movement in outer space is based on the fact that the earth is round. Although I have never actually been to outer space myself I think that the most reliable source of knowledge comes fr...

Earth is a spinning ball.

Edlvsjd
mangolife23

I hold that the earth is not a spinning globe as modern science claims. I am looking for empirical evidence that we live in a ball spinning at 1,000mph, tilted at a 66.6° angle, travelling at 66,000 mph in a 600,000 mile race track around the sun in space. Pro must use round one to provide such evidence, and forfeit the last round. Any media publicly available may be used until said media or it's source is proven false or unreliable. ...

Darwinian Evolution

RoyalDark
MagicAintReal

Round 1 - Acceptance Round 2 - Opening Argument Round 3 - Rebuttal Round 4 - 2nd Argument/More Rebuttal Round 5 - 3rd Argument/More Rebuttal...

The Universe is 13.8 billion years old

TheRussian
ViceRegent

I will not be arguing that the universe is exactly 13.8 billion years as this is very difficult. However, I will be arguing that the "scientific worldview" of the age of the universe is very reasonable and that the age of the universe can be measured in millions and billions of years, not thousands. I expect (though not require) that my opponent will be a creationist who will be arguing that the universe (and Earth) is several thousands years old, and my opponent may present his/her arguments...

Has anyone ever observed macro evolution taking place?

ViceRegent
MagicAintReal

The scientific method requires observation, testability and repeatability. Has anyone observed macro evolution taking place? If not, it is not science. Please only credential scientists with at least a BS answer....

For atheists, is the unverse infinately old or did it arise out of nothing?

ViceRegent
TheRussian

Atheists cannot allow anything outside of the universe to cause it to come into existence. Thus, they are left with the universe being infinitely old or that it arose out of nothing. Either way, they believe contrary to science, for the 2nd Law of Thermo says the universe cannot be infinitely old and the 1st Law of Thermo says it could not have arisen out of nothing. Atheism must be wrong....
