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.

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...

Round 1 is...
