Global Warming

Pmaynard94
SBC

Global warming is not always bad. Don't get me wrong, global warming may present a huge change in climate and that may be the biggest detriment to the human race, but global warming does present an upside, more food, more tropical areas, more hot summer days, and a decrease of deaths. The issue of global warming is serious, but it has also helped the planet more than it has harmed it....

GarretKadeDupre
IntellectualAtheist

This debate is technically open to the first person who accepts it; however, if I do not deem you a worthy opponent, I will simply forfeit every round. I'm aware that this carries a huge risk of being sniped by a noob, but I don't care about my statistics on this site anymore.The resolution is as follows:Young Earth Creationism (YEC) is a better explanation than Modern Evolutionary Theory.I'm Pro, and will be arguing in favor of YEC.The...

Edible vaccines can save lots of lives, four million people die every year from preventable disease and edible vaccines can decrease the number of deaths.10/11 volunteers 91% who ingested the transgenic potatoes had fourfold rises in serum antibodies.19 out of 20 persons showed increases in the serum antibody levels.Edible vaccine technology has been one of the great public health victories.A transgentic lettuce carrying a...

The Big Bang Theory Is True

Subutai
Anti-atheist

I'm doing this for a lot of reasons - Commitment, learning, and most importantly, the weekly stupid. The Big Bang Theory - "A cosmological theory holding that the universe originated approximately 20 billion years ago from the violent explosion of a very small agglomeration of matter of extremely high density and temperature."[1] First round for acceptance, and please don't forfeit.
