There is not enough evidence to support mutation as a primary mechanism that drove evolution.

myrrh

Evolution happened. What I am contesting here is one of its primary purported mechanisms, mutation. The intention of this debate is for Con to provide peer-reviewed studies supporting mutation as a major force that drove evolution. Specifically what I am looking for is a demonstration that mutation is able to create significant novel biological structures that allow for macro evolution to take place. I will be reading the studies and evaluating what was discovered/concluded. Con should understan...

Darwinian Evolution is False

I will be "Pro" in this debate. I propose that Darwinian Evolution, the evolving of speciation over time, is false. An example would be man did not "evolve" from a common ancestor of monkeys.According to Berkeley paleontologist James Valentine and his colleagues, the “Cambrian explosion is real, it is too big to be masked by flaws in the fossil record.” Indeed, as more fossils are discovered it becomes clear that the Cambrian explosion was even more abrupt and extens...

5+5*5+5=100 5+5=5*2 divide=share multiply=combine sides all math equations are triangles square or circles etc.. 1=circle 2=double 3=triangle 4=box because a sphere is 1 and it has only 1 side.. so 10 multiplied by 10 could be balls or spheres put togeather but a box is 4 balls put togeather.. so 1 can mean points that allow for something to exist any equation is 100 percent.. so to diviede an equation it must be equal.. which is to say it has a shape, wheather its a bo...

Is the earth flat as depicted in the bible?

Edlvsjd
AWSM0055

You've already shown that the bible is a flat earth book, but did you know it was flat? I can offer several scientifically sound proofs that it is, and disprove any argument that it is a sphere. Making the bible's acount true, and condemning all atheists to a lake of fire in the process. Con can start with his proofs in the first round, or he can accept in this round. The debate doesn't have to be formal....

Water Privatization

Water Privatization can help to improve the overall water supply.R32;The most dangerous thing that people consume every day is water. Billions of people every year drink water that is contaminated and puts their health at risk. Through water privatization, better water would be achieved for many communities because profitability would be in clean water and not dirty water. It would make systems more efficient.R32;Profitability dictates that a system be as efficient as possible so that it can...

Dark matter is a hindrance to scientific advancement

TruthLibrary

When astronomers observe the universe, their models do not match what they see. For example, astronomers predicted a very large and dense object in the middle of our galaxy, the Milky Way -- since the countless solar systems are being attracted. However, when we looked towards the center of the Milky Way... we saw nothing. So what happens next? Bright minds, instead of seriously questioning their understanding of the universe, declare that they can't possibly be wrong (ego through the roof)...
