First round is for acceptance only
No adding new arguments in later rounds No word games. No playing with semantics. No vague definition of words. If you use a word that can have several meanings, make it clear what you actually mean.
A fact is something that has really occurred or is actually the case. The usual test for a statement of fact is verifiability, that is whether it can be proven to correspond to experience. Standard reference works are often used to check facts.

Ever since Darwin came up with the idea that spieces evolved, science has been trying to prove him wrong.
Over 100 years later and thousands of experiments later, science has failed to prove Darwin wrong.

Everything they tried actually confirms evolution as a fact. (They = qualified scientists)



With DNA alone. you can take any two spieces that exist and trace them back to the common ancestor they evolved from.

The fossile record only confirms the DNA evidence. Using several forms of radiometric dating that all converge on the same results, every fossile ever found fits into the tree of evolution exactly where it would be expected to fit.

All it would take to disprove evolution, would be to find just one fossile that didn't belong where the theory says it should go.

It's also important to realize that a scientific theory is not the same as non-scientific theory.
When used in non-scientific context, the word “theory” implies that something is unproven or speculative.

A scientific theory summarizes a hypothesis or group of hypotheses that have been supported with repeated testing. If enough evidence accumulates to support a hypothesis, it moves to the next step—known as a theory—in the scientific method and becomes accepted as a valid explanation of a phenomenon.

You can't forbid your opponent from debating. That's a loss of conduct.

So basically, you are forbidding your opponent to post any argument?
