I'd like to say evolution isn't true because its based on religion and not on science. Weve never seen a monkey become a guy...

I have to say, Immediately after I saw this title and your name next to it, I rushed :)

1. Humans did not evolve from 'monkies'. The process of evolution was guided over an extremely long course through the process of natural selection and mutations.

2. Now to refute your second argument, although reworded:'We have never seen one species become another species'
This is not true. We observe this sort of thing on a daily basis. We recently observed a subspecies of salamanders that underwent various changes in the course of their journey.[1]
After a small group of the salamanders had reached a certain point, they met with the original kind again, unable to mate. This is what's known as a 'ring species'
If you're planning on saying 'if humans are still monkies, why can't we mate with them anymore' please don't, as it's obvious from this example why that's a bad argument.
They also just recently found a fish developing legs somewhere off the coast of Australia, just to show that evolution is constant.[2]

Humans are a type of ape. All modern day apes have a common ancestor. Simple as that.

Evolution is based on science.... Creationism is religion. Did you get that mixed up, or was that arguement intended, because it's an incorrect one.

This should be fun to read. When Pro starts with such a strong opening argument, you know it's going to be a great debate (sarcasm). Good luck Con... It's always interesting debating with people who deny logic, reason and evidence, and who ignore everything you say except for one sentence that they think they might be able to challenge..

Reasons for voting decision: I could just justify this because of the FF, but it's also because pro made no arguments and just spouted a bunch of ridiculous statements that have been put in there place so many times over already.
