This debate is about Intelligent Design and Evolution.

I believe that intelligent design isn't science and an alternative theory to evolution.

I'll let my opponent speak first.

Alright, this should be an interesting debate. Good luck to my opponent, lets get started!

First off, you must realize that my opponent is affirmative. As such, the burden of proof falls on her. As negative, I need only prove why her case is incorrect. So far, I have won the debate, since my opponent makes no argument. I leave my opponent with the fact that where evolution fails to explain the origin of the Earth, the intelligent design theory is complete and whole. Even if some of its other aspects were plausible, evolution, supposedly, would take billions upon billions of years. I am sure my opponent will bring this up in her constructive, and we can debate that then. Given, evolution cannot accurately say how old the Earth is. (The main reason being that radiometric dating is flawed in many ways. Besides, that isn't even part of evolution.) Since evolution cannot provide for one basic that it needs in order to even be plausible, it is a flawed theory. Intelligent design is whole. Until my opponent states otherwise, I have already won the debate. Opponent, in your next speech please:

1- Make a constructive case

2- Attack my own

Until you do both of these, I can only assume that you agree with me. Good luck!
