Pro

The world is slowly falling apart due the human race as a whole. We are slowly using up all of our natural resources,and hurting our selves. We are destroying everything around us just so that we wont have to use our body and actually exercise.

Con

The structure of the world at large remains highly intact. Humans have not affected tectonics in the slightest, nor are they on a pace to. The sum total of human action so far is more comparable to sanding the surface, smoothing it out, on this sphere, than "tearing it apart." The earth's diameter is 7926.28 miles. It is literally impossible for humans to do as the resolution describes. I'd say more if it weren't for the character limit.

Wikipedia cites its sources:

http://www.icdp-online.org...

When it does so, it is reliable.

Anyway, my opponent didn't bring that up, so it doesn't matter :)

wikipedia can be changed by anyone and is not a reliable source for anything

If this debate counts as semantics, then I don't know what wouldn't. :)
