This debate is for the purpose of discussing the rise of civilization, often referred to as the Neolithic Revolution. This period has most often been known as the period where agriculture transitioned mankind from hunter-gatherer population to sedentary communities.

I will be arguing rather that rise of religion is responsible for this, via new discoveries.

Round 1 - Acceptance
Round 2 - Opening Arguments
Round 3 and 4 - Rebuttals

Looking forward to a respectful and interesting debate.

Kind Regards,

I accept this debate and am really curious to see how religion affected civilization and expansion. This should be interesting.
Also, as you open, can you make sure to define which religions you are using and how they have created a drive for this expansion?

Hi JacobAnderson,

Due to the fact that I didn't have as much time as I thought I would earlier this weekend, would it be possible to postone this debate for a future date?

(Note: I want to finish our other debate about slavery and the Holocaust)

Kind Regards,

That's fine. Gives me a little more time to research, too.
