Germs in the blood is a secondary phase of the disease process.

A have been advised by some less educated persons on this site that germs are the cause of disease. It is assumed that because there are germs in the blood that these germs are the cause of disease. This is false information. This type of thinking was common in the past before modern technology proved that leaky gut syndrome allowed the germs from the gut to enter the blood.

Is light visible or invisible?

The general belief is that light, specifically visible light, is visible. Surprisingly, the book of general ignorance states that light is actually invisible. I tend to agree. Would anyone care to debate the issue? Only one rule. A dictionary definition can't be used as proof itself. https://books.google.co.za/books?dq=if+light+itself+was+visible+it+would+form+a+fog+before+your+eyes&hl=en&id=uCgRY6llQpYC&lpg=PA115&ots=L6qEIRS2ri&pg=PA115&sa=X&sig=CQ8sQuLzcVOxQ7dQC0TKahBTHro&source=bl&ved...

Who is more important? Steve Jobs(pro) or Thomas Edison(con)?

Here are the methods and rules of this debate: Method: Greetings--> rebuttal--> Point--> ending rules: politely, no offensive words. no swear words. You are not allowed to forfeit no matter what. So I believe Thomas Edison is a lot more better because he created light. Without light, we can't see. Long time ago. People still use fire. It is easier to cause fire disasters. So light is so much better. Because of him, we can sleep safely, knowing that the lights is hard catch your bed on fire. A...
