creationism should be taught in science classrooms over evolution
Debate Rounds (4)
In the case of creationism, the only thing I see it being effective at is giving a nice (depending on your definition of nice) story to those who find comfort in the delusion of a belief in God. Adam & Eve, the snake, Noah and his arc, etc. are all not real.
I've read the bible and I'm versed in the workings of evolution. I am looking forward to a fun healthy debate and hopefully we can land on an island of logical agreement.
I believe that you should be able to have a freedom of speech in what you believe. I also believe that, since this world is so large, that you should be able to know what other people believe.
I do not think one should be taught over the other.
Even if you are religious, you should know how science works in the eyes of a scientist and if you're not, vice versa.
Yes, I know that's a dumb precaution, but you know how the world is.
Also what is your opinion towards life else where in the galaxy or universe? I believe that it is statistically more probable that there is life elsewhere. If you do not agree I have a few thoughts that might make you think.
I have other queries but I shall save them for later rounds Incase you have any commentary
I also agree that there could be life elsewhere, it makes sense.
But I would also disagree that the universe is infinite, thus making life elsewhere only chanced.
The most abundant elements in our body are the same elements that are the most abundant in the universe(out of regular matter of course). Hydrogen nitrogen, oxygen, carbon runs deep through out the universe.
With that in mind, there could be lets say a million twin earths out there but because they could also be so far far apart from each other there is no way for any communication to take place.
Coupling the size of the universe and how were made of basic ingrideients I believe life is inevitable
