I stand in negation. As my opponent is PRO, I will allow him to open.

Greetings Instigator. I appreciate the opportunity to debate this topic as it is near and dear to my heart. I am new to this but I'll see if I can wing it. I would first start off by saying I believe the Bible is literally true and 100% accurate. It says that God made the earth in 6 days and I believe that's what he did. You say there's no evidence for a young earth but I would disagree in using the "idea" of the geologic column. I believe the only way to explain fossils and the many layers of strata is in the context of Noah's worldwide flood. There have been millions of animals die since the flood but there aren't any fossils because they weren't buried quickly enough to be fossilized. Also looking at the time it takes to fossilize, I think you'll find that it doesn't take millions of years as the evolutionist would have you think. There have been fossilized dogs found in trees, a fossilized cowboy foot inside of a cowboy boot that dated back to the 1940's. I would say that based on these facts you could conclude that the Bible is true and these aspects point to a younger earth than evolution would have you believe. I'll stop there so you aren't crammed with different arguments and we can take it one aspect at a time. Thanks again, and God bless.

My opponent is agreeing with me. Do I need to argue?

I think you mistakenly agreed to this debate. We are arguing for the same thing. Uh, what do we do from here?

There is *some* Biblical evidence, but who cares? It should be a scientific issue, not an issue of whether or not it appears to be some holy book. YEC is wacko from a scientific perspective.
