Backwards debate is my idea that instead of arguing your own belief, you argue the opposite. Creationists will support evolution, and evolutionists will support creation. I hope that this will allow us to understand each other better! I got this idea after seeing that one person commented "creationism is stupid"

Rules:
1 argue for the other side. No exeptions!
2 no saying "i cant find any evidence for the other side"
3 Actually research and look for valid evidence for the other side!
Did the flood of the bible happen? What evidence is there for or against the world being flooded with water? Are you ready?
Let the games.... Begin!

Re: The Biblical Flood Really Happened
Ok i notice that you begin by saying that the biblical flood happened, but then go on to say that it was very different from what we believe, But still, you actually did research instead of saying " the bible says so," and to coyote, yes the bible says so, but i said i wanted you to do some research on the subject, i am not complaining, i am attempting to make the rules a little more clear, all in all, i appreciate your willingness to contribute. And to percy, great job! Research, actually TRYING to prove the other sides' point, this is what i wanted from this thread. It takes very little effort to find proof in what you believe, but it takes a lot more effort to find evidence against what you believe, now coyote, if you are still reading this, please try harder, i am glad you chose to participate, but you are stereotyping christians as people who just say " the bible says you are wrong! So there!" We have scientists too! We have brains too! We are people too! Please dont get angry at me for this.

P.S. actually coyote, you did state the reason that we believe in the flood, and that is, in a way, a good effort, i just put this at the end because other people may just say the same thing, and we would get nowhere.

Re: The Biblical Flood Really Happened
Well i guess it is my turn then, to begin i will also start with an overused but valid question, where did the water all go? Where would enough water to cover the earth even come from? Maybe christians just stole from the greek flood story!

Also
Please pm me links to websites with evidence for evolution, Against the flood, etc. I have a feeling that backwards debate will have other topic(s) eventually. Maybe when this one is dead.
