Intelligent design is a rational explanation for the origin of species

Jellon
Envisage

Intelligent design (ID) is the belief that life on earth arose from an intelligent source as opposed to natural causes (abiogenesis). As many confuse ID with Young Earth Creationism (YEC), I will explicitly state that ID includes but is not limited to YEC. The BoP for Pro (myself) is to show that there are rational reasons to believe that life on earth was designed by an intelligent source using principles or methods that may be applied outside the scope of the origins of life. The BoP for...

Creationism/Intelligent design should NOT be taught in science classes as a valid scientific theory

Phoenix61397

This debate is impossible to accept. Comment if you wish to debate.

Dinosaurs Lived With People

GarretKadeDupre

I will be arguing that live dinosaurs existed at the same time humans did. I may use the term dinosaur interchangeably with mesosaur or pterosaur. I do not mean birds; that would be abusive use of the term. Voters should exercise their discretion when deciding if my use of the term dinosaur or human becomes abusive.

Psychiatrist vs Psychologist [?]

OK, Psychiatrist is the one who's specializing in diagnosis and treatment for mental illness. Meanwhile, Psychologist deals with diagnosing and treating diseases of the brain, emotional disturbance, and behavior problems. Which is, both of them deals with people who has mental illnesses. But, what is the BIG difference? And, which is better? For me, I guess I'll go for Psychologist. Pick any of the two, defend your answer. Gracias! xo...

Max.Wallace
SmallTacos

What I have found on this site is that the most dedicated debaters, and the smartest in their own mind almost always, do not vote on the big issues, or accept messages. They are conceited tyrants. They wish to not have to hear the masses, only dictate their opinion....
