Hello
I am in favor of the fact that evolution is real. For the first round I will talk based two arguments that I have concluded. My first argument is the fact on Charles Darwin and his finding of the birds that were found in South America and second the fact on fossils that have been found.
First, my argument on Charles Darwin's discoveries, but before we start I would like to say a few things based on evolution. Evolution ,which you may know, is based on the adoption and mutations of animals to live better or comfortable and also suitable in that environment or time. Evolution is taken place when the environment has changed rapidly and after one species is extinct. Now lets get on, Charles Darwin was one of the first person to study on evolution and he was actually a failed doctor who was sent by his father to study and learn about the world. While at his voyage he had found a bird at South America Galapagos Island. The bird was a finch, but the finch was different to the finch that was at Ecuador. Both were similar but more different and Charles Darwin had found that the environment was different and so was there food. The finch at the Galapagos Island was at a tropical environment where eating fruits, nuts and insects with a short but powerful beak. Where the finch at Ecuador was at at environment of dessert and had long a beak that was used to suck the necter out of a cactus. This would conclude to one thing, that the finch had changed. Both finches had similar DNAs and both were similar to be seen at classification. But the one difference is that the environment was different which meant that both finches had changed. So you could conclude that fact that both birds are similar species but had changed because of the environment or the fact that the bird was mutated when he was migrating and later went on his family tree. And here, that change is evolution.
Second, I argue that if there were no evolution and it was the same starting from the beginning of earth, and also the beginning of life on earth, why is there no people bones or fossils at the time before. Why is there no fossils or prints or proofs that there is people at the time of dinosaurs where upon there are only dinosaurs bones. Why had the elephant changed from a mammoth to a animal that has no fur and no long tusk. Most importantly, why is there no animals that lived before us humanity not living such as the dinosaur but only the dinosaurs most close test animals such as lizards, turtle and more other reptile? Why is there no more of dinosaurs?

In this last round, I would just like to state on the whale. The whale is a water living creature which is believed to once live in the land. That could be proved by three things. First is that the whale has similar ancestor fossils, has similar bone and mouth structure, and finally the fact that the whale has hip bone.
First, the fact that whales have a ancestor fossil that is concluded to live at land. That fossil is conclude as the whales ancestor because of the second reason. The fact that whales have similar skull and mouth and the bone structure to the fossil. For that reason scientist have conlcuded whales were once land living creatures and the fact that evolution is real.
Third I state that whales have hip bones. Those hip bones we humans also have and hip bones are used to walk. And walking means that they lived in the land. That hip bone gives you a fact that those whales have once changed from a land liver, to water liver. That is what I believe to state as evolution.

To a point, I agree with you Kleptin. However, when reading the opening argument it is clear which side lowfastflyer was taking. Johnny Appleseed's acceptance of this challenge may have been based on the argument. The fact that lowfastflyer mistakenly chose Con as his position should not be held against the Contender.

Both pro and con argued the wrong points and skipped at least a round.

However, "Pro" was the only one to give an argument so he wins.

This debate was terrible.
