Topic: Evolution is true

...

This is the topic. Evolution is true. This is a borderline truism, accepted in the status quo, a scientific fact yet 6 of us have to argue the polar; that evolution is false, and this includes me.

This is practically impossible to argue on the most part, an unfair resolution and arguing against it albeit possible, requires the ability to level out the playing field which is heavily tilted to the proposer of the resolution, basically negating facts.

Sorry, but this really isn't a good resolution.

9spaceking is winning. It isn't impossible to argue anyways. I once argued it, although you must accept that both debaters determined the topic together.
How about NO elections?

Except that Con(me) called him out for plagirism.

Well... I didn't set the resolution in any way. If it was up to me I would have set a something better, but debaters are free to argue whatever they feel like if they both agree.

How are you going with your debate anyway? Have you contacted nzlockie?

CJKAllstar should go get him and then discuss a topic for their debate.

It looks like I got this round one debate in the bag. However, I shudder to even think of debating a tough debater like Ajab, CJKallstar, or even Rebekah. I've seen all three in action and debated all three in a serious debate (with the exception of Rebekah ). Ajab was the first man to break my 6-debate-streak of School Uniforms; CJKAllstar masterfully defeated my God-Exists tough resolution; and Rebekah--I know she's got the guts and the information to beat me, so if I get her, I'll have to make the resolution tough--or persuade her into playing devil's advocate. >:)
