I regret accepting this debate: http://www.debate.org...
I know practically nothing about Evolution and I'm debating this new but connoisseur in science. Terrible decision, king, terrible decision.
Well, while I mourn over my definite lost, you can vote on this debate I actually knew about pretty well and definitely won: http://www.debate.org...
Well...at least the spelling points. Not sure about actual arguments.

Im a scientist. Here are some encouraging words. This person you are debating doesn't know jack. Everything your opponent has argued thus far can be utterly destroyed by simply researching the correct scientific definition of a biological theory. I would volunteer to take over the debate for you, but ive got a report to finish tonight. Maybe tomorrow or sometimes throughout the week, if it is still going.

thx a lot sswdwm. I must warn you tho, school is starting and I might have no time to watch it. It would be much easier if someone told me pro's weak points and his "straw-man" fallacy. Why do ppl say its easy his points look strong...The only weak point I can find is.... (my draft argument) "The problem with human judgement is that it tends to see things that are there even if they're not really there." This exactly is what Pro did wrong. He says "Con claims that macro-evolution is a theory and a fact". What?? I never said this? I never talked about macro-evolution, I said evolution in general. I never even mentioned Darwin! It is because the lack of micro-evolution, I suppose con has conceded that part of the argument.

first off, there is no such thing as macro vs. micro evolution. Second, your opponent hasn't the damndest idea of what a biological theory is.

macro vs micro YES THERE IS http://evolution.berkeley.edu...
Lol I have no idea what that is either. Is it a proven hypothesis with many sources backing it up, and new evidence very hard to turn it over?

whew! I finally posted my rebuttal. Even though I only watched the first part of the 50 minute video. :P
Did I do good? Or did I horribly mess up?

Well...at least the spelling points. Not sure about actual arguments.

Its such a shame, really. Your opponent is so bad, and this debate is so easy, and yet you kinda failed.

What I like to do is basically go paragraph by paragraph, utterly addressing, and decimating my opponents arguments. Sometimes, putting your opponents paragraph that you are addressing, in quotations, right above your rebuttal, is helpful.

With regards to your last round, I would posted the fact that there are specific characteristics found in archeopteryx and repitles that are not found in birds, and vice versa. Heres a good site that lists the similarities shared between Archeo and Birds, and Archeo and Reptiles, but not between reptiles and birds:
http://www.talkorigins.org...

I would write that the demonstration of Archeopteryx as the direct ancestor of common birds is irrelevant. The only thing that matters is that Archeopteryx is a transitional fossil by its very definition.

With regards to micro and macro evolution, there is no difference.

With regards to Charles darwins quote, i would say, quite simply, absurd. Claiming that there would be numerous modifications for every formation is absurd, because fossilization is highly rare, something that was not known at the time of Darwin, because the mechanism of fossilization was not known, making his objection meaningless. But there are plenty of transitional fossils that produce a clear lineage of evolution, the evolution of the horse, for example.

Also, there is no difference between general evolution and darwinian evolution.

With arguments for Evolution, I would use genetics, since that is both my field of expertise and what I consider to be the best evidence for evolution, macro and micro.

From what I've seen so far in some of these evolution debates, you may win just by virtue of siding with evolution.
