Presentation

Fossil Record

A fossil is a dead animal or plant preserved in the ground. There is a fossil RECORD. So, if snapshots from the past are arranged from oldest to newest, it illustrates a panorama. There may be missing animals. However, that is so because their bodies deteriorate (Either from the lacklust of nutrients, or from decomposers decomposing them) and may not have any bones.

Relation between humans and related living organisms

Scientists have discovered that the DNA of an ape is VERY similar to the human DNA. How does this support my claim anyhow? We were originally single-cellular organisms, according to evolution, overtime evolving. We evolve overtime into an ape. The next stage (After ape) is human.[1]

I have to leave and will be unable to make an argument in time. You can post your argument first. It's up to you. I'm sorry about this but at least there's five rounds!

Ah.. However, I haven't come up with new arguments and I already presented my arguments in R1. So, if you have time now, you may both present your points and rebut my arguments.

Hello!

i apologize for the forfeit. I went on a camping trip and was without internet connection. I was planning on finishing my arguments the day before but there was a bug on the website... Something about vb<x>script... I apologize and I am truly sorry for this issue.
