Evolution is not a viable origin model

Jschmeic
numberwang

Evolution is not a viable origin model. It has been shown incorrect many times but no one seems to notice. An excellent example is salt in the ocean we all know the ocean is getting progressively saltier. So if the earth is billions of years old then how do you explain the fact that there is not enough salt for the ocean to be billions of years old. 457 million tonnes of sodium now comes into the sea every year....

Creationism should be taught in school (as in science classes)

zommunist
General-Z

I don't think creationism should be taught in schools. There aren't enough evidence for the idea that we are 6000 years old, but there are for evolution: immunology, DNA analysis, findings of skulls, and especially modern radiometric dating based on empirical study of radioactive decay. Although these processes are not inaccurate there uncertainties are blown out of proportion by creationists. Young earth creationists think that the Bible is 100% true and that only the word of God (i.e. the B...

Can the human race get along as a whole?

Condelini
Pickle-Face18

We as a whole cannot seem to agree on just about anything. Between wars and greed we are consumed. With either destroying ourselves or polluting the planet. If we were visited by a hostile alien race we would war with ourselves to decide who is in charge. They wouldn't even have to fire a shot we would do it for them....

dtaylor971

Animals can further our understand of science vastly by experimentation, as well as save millions of lives.. Would you rather a albino rat die or a young girl with leukemia die? Most people (unless you belong to PETA which is another debate entirely) would prefer the girl....

Mosquitos kill more people than sharks.

SweetCrackerJack
kbub

I, pro, will defend the position that mosquitos, do in fact, kill more people than sharks. Due to scientific studies, Mosquitoes kill 2 to 3 million people per yer, while infecting about 200 million people per year. My proof is proved in this wikipedia entry: A shark attack is an attack on a human by a shark. Every year around 100 shark attacks are reported worldwide. Seventeen fatalities were recorded as having being caused by shark attacks in 2011, out of 118 recorded attacks.[1] Despi...

Mhykiel
Subutai

First round Con can present their arguments.I assert Zero-Energy Hypothesis is Erroneous.As a hypothesis used by many Atheist to explain the emerging universe, it is flawed and not in accordance with observations. Conclusions drawn from this model are supported by presuppositions and skewing of data.For even number of rounds, Con is required to type "Round passed as Agreed" in the last round....
