Is our consciousness a mere impulse in the neurons?

Omniscient19
JacksonJ

Modern Psychology describes human consciousness as a mere neuron impulse and denies the existence of a 'soul' kind of thing. I vehemently oppose this notion as this theory is first of all a theory, it is not an established fact and will never be one!!!...

Life can arise from chemical processes and does NOT require creationism

Im_Intelligent
ewsbsk

My argument is simple. Processes such as those found in organic chemistry and abiogenisis can explain how living things came from non living things without the need of intelligent design or creationism. Try and prove otherwise C: > please give valid attempts to disprove my claims instead of repeating stuff about the bible, this is a debate about life not needing a creator, not a debate whether or not Jesus exists -_- Thank you....

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...

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...

Evolution is a complete fabrication without a shred of evidence

Kleptin
DATCMOTO

I would first like to thank my opponent for accepting this debate, and the audience for their time and participation. This debate is a challenge to the member DATCMOTO who asserted in this thread: http://www.debate.org/forums/religion/topic/1796/5/ That "Evolution is a complete fabrication without a shred of evidence". I would assume that DATCMOTO is a man of his word and means what he says. If this is the case, then I would like to challenge this assertion. I personally believe that th...

The Earth is flat

Cat47
Edlvsjd

In this debate, I will be challenging debate.org's favorite flat Earther Edlvsjd to another debate on the shape of the Earth. The rules are simple. 1. First round is for acceptance only. 2. Second round is for arguments only. No rebuttals, because that is for the third round. 3. No new arguments can be made in the third round. 4. Show some proof for your arguments......
