The Earth is not millions or billions of years old. Please provide your best evidence that the Earth is millions or billions of years old.

I would like to debate this topic without rounds so that we can go back and forth in a more specific and methodical manner if you are willing. I am more than happy to post our debate in the round by round format to be evaluated and such afterwords. What do you think?

I looked and the website seems to only allow a round format. Email would work fine, afterwords you or I can copy and paste it in the online format for scoring.

Are you okay with this format:

I will be the affirmative for the claim Earth is billions of years old. I carry burden of proof.

I will list my claims generally and you can identify which ones you disagree with (it may be the case you won't disagree with every claim I make and I do not want to bother providing evidence for claims that you do not find relevant). After you identify my claims that need evidence we can look at each claim individually and go back and forth until you or I are satisfied that we made all the points that we could regarding the claim and move on. I understand there is a bit of overlap in expectations from DDO and this format but there are little differences that help I think.

Is this agreeable/understandable?

If you would friend me or message me I can send you my email.
