Evolution is not real. Life is too complex that it is unreasonable to say it evolved from a single cell. God is real and he created this world.

Evolution is not real. My opponent has made my job easier in not providing evidence that supports evolution. Evolution goes against the law of biogenesis. This states that all life comes from life. Evolution says that life came from non life. Life is so complicated dead matter could not have created this universe. If it did, then tell me the process of the first life form came into existence.

My opponent has not brought up anything at all to support evolution. If he says that evolution is not real, then why are we having this debate. There is no point in this debate if my opponent agrees with me, or he won't take it seriously. Because my opponent has not brought up any contentions for evolution, there isn't really anything I can refute.

Evolution being real, and God being real are not a true dichotomy. Falsification of one does not prove the truth of the other.

The Bible has two, some may say three, different creation stories. Evolution is a core theory. People of faiths, and science do not know the answer to this question. Disregard such questions and live the hedonistic lifestyle. Just don't disrespect others, or we will call 911.

Which one contradicts our background knowledge and which one unifies over 20 different scientific disciplines?

@squonk Theory of evolution is concerned with the origin of life...that is the basically the title for Darwin's book, On The Origin of Species, and Darwin is the one who made evolution such a big thing now. Evolution states all species evolved from a single-celled organism. 1) Evolution can be just as much of a leap of faith than intelligent design or creationism. Evolution lacks the ability to explain how complex life can originate from a single-celled organism. Evidences for evolution are either not enough or interpreted to suit the evolutionary perspective. Adaptation is possible where humans adapt to the environment. However, the change from apes to humans requires a entirely different process where one must explain how humans gained intelligence, more immunity to diseases, lose a chromosome, et cetera. The formations of the Earth, including Grand Canyon, points more towards the Biblical account than anything. 2) Sin entered the world and God's design became cursed.

jackgilbert, evolution is not concerned with the origin of life. The theory of evolution does NOT state that life came from non-life. That's a separate issue. The theory of evolution is concerned with how life evolved over time.

Christians face a dilemma: (1) accept evolution, or (2) accept that God is a stupid, lousy designer: "One of nature's worst designs is shown by the recurrent laryngeal nerve of mammals. Running from the brain to the larynx, this nerve helps us speak and swallow. The curious thing is that it is much longer than it needs to be. Rather than taking a direct route from the brain to the larynx, a distance of about a foot in humans, the nerve runs down into our chest, loops around the aorta and a ligament derviced from an artery, and then travels back up ("recurs") to connect to the larynx. It winds up being three feet long. In giraffes the nerve takes a similar path, but one that runs all the way down that long neck and back up again: a distance fifteen feet longer than the direct route!" (Why Evolution is True, Jerry Coyne)
