Abiogenesis is a reasonable theory for the beginnings of life

whiteflame
GarretKadeDupre

So I want to be clear on several things off the bat so that whoever joins this debate understands the line I'm drawing here and what this debate is going to be about. This is not a debate on evolution. This is not a debate on the Big Bang theory. I would be happy to argue these in future debates, especially evolution, but there is a distinct line of separation here. The argument will be specific to abiogenesis, and it is my burden to present a reasonable theory and defend it. As such, I w...

Evolution vs. Creation

jamccartney
SandmanTF131

In a recent debate concerning the existence of God, my opponent continued to deny the fact of evolution. Because of that, I wish to start a debate just concerning that topic. I, Pro, will be arguing the fact that evolution is true.My opponent, Con, will be arguing that evolution is false and that Creationism is true.Evolution is the change in the inherited characteristics of biological populations over successive generations. Round 1 is...

CON is refuting their arguments.This debate is not relying on evidence; it is not PRO's job to provide evidence of parallel universes but to show how they are logical.BoP is on PRO. Definitions LOGICAL - Goes along with logic, NOT relying on evidence ASSUME - Use...

Is alien study even worth looking into? Why would you believe it?

Demosthenes25
TruthHurts

This will actually be sort of a short introduction. Please only join the debate if you feel opposite from me, otherwise don't join, just comment ;) Aliens is something most smart people are against, but wonder. Other people feel they just know something is out there, other than boring humans! I for one do not believe in them. Why would you? They are said to be anything (other than germ-like creatures) that live on other planets, asteroids, or even stars. We have literal evidence that, as far...

Mankind Is the Main Cause of Global Warming

Ron-Paul
Numidious

You have asked to debate this first, so I am sending you the challenge directly. My last opponent on this subject forfeited, so I want to try this resolution again. Full Resolution: Mankind is the main cause of global warming. I, as con, will argue that it is of natural causes, not mankind. We will NOT be arguing if global warming exists or not, it will be assumed that it does. Only if global warming has an anthropogenic cause. Definitions: Mankind: "The human race; human being...

Intelligent Agency is the best explanation for the origin of life in this universe

joepalcsak
Orangatang

this is a shared burden of proof debate. I will be arguing in favor of the proposition. Taking the position that intelligent agency is not the best explanation for the origin of life in this universe, con's burden of proof will be to offer a better explanation. First round is for acceptance only...

Star Trek technology is achievable

Heineken
philochristos

The technology on Star Trek is reasonably achievable. While the technology is inherently fictional, the function of the technology could be duplicated in the real world, including it's practical application.I have provided a list of Star Trek technology. My opponent must choose one of these listed fictional technologies and argue why it's impossible to create. My burden of proof will be to explain why it is possible to create such a technology.
