    Could you both give a little overview of your side to get things started here?

    1. Mark Knowles profile image60
      Mark Knowlesposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      No. We have agreed a set format.

      @ Gardner - I suggest you start a new thread and re state your proposition.

      "Biblical theory better describes the origins of human life as opposed to Evolution Theory."

      Three rounds of:

      The Affirmative always goes first(that would be Gardner)

      Then the Negative gets to cross-examine and asks question to the affirmative

      Then the Negative presents their case

      Then the Affirmative get to  cross examine and ask the negative questions

      The Affirmative does their rebuttal (no new arguments) just refutation

      Then the Negative gives rebuttal (no new arguments)  and closing

      Then the Affirmative closes

      Then the judges vote

                  LOLOL

                  Well - seeing as the entire thing amounts to "science is lying," I am actually considering what a reasonable response is.

                  I could do it in 5 minutes - as Paraglider says, because there really is nothing to respond to, but I am hoping to respond in such a fashion as we learn something from each other and perhaps get across the fact that evolution is a scientific theory attempting to explain the facts we have observed - rather than a philosophy.

                  I am not really sure where the bible says that T Rex was actually a 900 year old lizard that mysteriously died out after the flood, and am deciding which parts to respond to without resorting to ridicule.

                  I realize Gardner took around 3 minutes to formulate his opening statement - and it shows. I also have other things to do. wink

                    I'm just eager Mark, as I am keeping my eye on your reply with that of Gardner's... Hmmm it seems to me you are doing your homework, looking for some weaknesses... That remains to be seen though... Goodluck Mark and to Gardner as well... I just broke your silence with this thread hehehe a bit sorry for that though wink

                    If you think you're right don’t draw this out ask your questions lets  keep this debate going, don't stall. Btw theme is not “science is lying” it's evolutionism is a lie There a BIG difference. Evolutionists presented Ida, Ardi and Lucy etc. as facts and missing links. Scientists were honest and retracted them as just bones and drawings, and not proof of evolution.

    Question:
    So this is the thread that you can both call names and insult because the other thread  is sacrosanct? Civility in the "real" thread then becomes nullified by this thread, does it not?

    Just observing...

      True. I suggest we both stay out of any other thread discussing the debate, but I doubt that mark can control himself. lol
