**STICKY** Archive rules (Read before posting!)

Ever had a debate on Youtube via comments or private messages and recorded it? Post it here for everyone's benefit. Remember to name and shame the pwned.

Please introduce the context of your dialogue and post it in chronological order, using quote tags to represent your opponent's arguments. Quote tags are entered like this:
[quote="My opponent"]What my opponent wrote.[/quote]

This will appear as:
My opponent wrote:What my opponent wrote.

You can select a portion of text and click the Quote button to format it easily. If you are posting an introduction, please make it clear where the debate starts. Make sure your thread title includes the subject of your debate and your opponent's name. This will make it easier to search the archives. Below is a hypothetical example to demonstrate how your debate should be formatted.


Hi guys, here is a debate I had with PCS (VenomFangX) on the validity of Quantum Mechanics. It didn't last long, but I felt he was suitably pwned. The debate starts here.

PCS wrote:Quantum mechanics is a religion invented by so-called scientists to try and disprove God by saying the big bang theory is true and the universe came from nothing.

Actually, QM is the single most verified field of science. It makes spookily accurate predictions which are tested by experiment. Under some interpretations of QM, it is possible to borrow energy from nowhere. If this is the case, it is conceivable that enough energy may have been borrowed to bring the universe to its initial state. Of course, this is largely speculative, but the big bang theory is not. It is strongly supported by observational evidence. The big bang theory is not an attempt to explain the cosmogony of the universe, but rather the cosmology.
PCS wrote:There is no evidence that quantum theory is true or real. It is only maths. It is a lie invented by atheist mathematicians.

Without a working understanding of QM, it is impossible to fully understand semi-conductor physics. This was a fundamental requirement for scientists and engineers to develop transistors. Every transistor that has ever worked is experimental evidence in favour of QM. Your computer is filled with transistors. Are you telling me they don't exist; that your computer doesn't work?
PCS wrote:... .... ... .......Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever looked at a woman with lust? Have you ever stolen anything? Even something small... You are a liar, an adulterer at heart and a thief. You need the lord. Please copy and paste this message and spam everyone you know for Jesus!

I think my work here is done.

The debate ends here.

What do you think?

If we can stick to this format, the archives will become a useful resource for a variety of topics.
