Everything should be debatable. But this topic should be debated withing the context of its validity. The theory of evolution has too much proof to be challenged as a whole at this point. There are specifics of the theory that are up for debate. New advances in molecular biology have given us a better picture of evolution and shown that we actually have explosions of speciation during certain times (the Cambrian period for example) rather than constant, slow changes.

Now if you somehow don't believe the theory of evolution itself, it's probably because you're holding on to some wishful thinking about the Genesis story being true....You should be free to debate that point of view if you want, but the rest of us should look at it like you're arguing against the theory of gravity.
