Mike_X

Pro

I will be taking the side of evolution on the pro, my opponent whomever they be will be taking the con and argue that creationism is real.
SuburbiaSurvivor

Con

I accept this debate.

Unfortunately, my opponent has failed to define "evolution". However, in light of the debate title, we can assume that he means "bacteria-to-man" evolution, or "macro-evolution". In essence, Pro must prove that human beings evolved over millions of years from single-celled organisms, which creationism directly rejects.

Burden of Proof

Pro has the burden of proof. Pro must provide substantial evidence that proves evolution.

Substantial Evidence

Substantial evidence in this case will be evidence that supports evolution and directly contradicts creationism. Evidence that fits into both views should be considered irrelevant. After all, this debate is not "Evolution probably did occur, creationism is wrong", but "Evolution did occur, creationism is wrong".

Good luck, Pro!

Why does evolution and creationism have to be mutually exclusive? Why couldn't some god or deity created a species that evolved or that he caused to evolve?
