Animals deserve rights in spite of their intelligence compared to humans

Yes, animals are definitely not as smart as we are. They cannot do what we do. However, this does not mean they are not smart enough to live . They have their own way of surviving in this world, just like we have our own ways. If an animal ever commits an evil deed, it does not make them evil. They cannot help being dumb to know any better. And would it really be fun to be the only animals on this planet? No. We cannot all be the same. Animals may not think like us, but they can teach us...

Medical Research Using Live Animals

Testing on animals has contributed to many life-saving cures and treatments. By using the pancreas of a dog, scientists were able to develop insulin which is a necessity for people with type one and type two diabetes (Animal-testing.procon.org). The polio vaccine was developed by testing on animals. If testing was not done on animals, the polio epidemic of the first half of the 1900s wouldn't have ended and the world would have lost much of that generation and the generations to come. We ha...

Vaccinations (mandatory/ disbursemenet)

Vaccinations should not be mandatory, because of peoples religious beliefs. Many people hold religious beliefs against vaccination, forcing parents to vaccine their children would violate the first amendment, which is the freedom to exercise their religion. Vaccines interfere with the natural law and God's plan for humanity. Disease is natural and humans should not interfere with it. The ethical dilemmas associated with using hu...

Is the invention of Nuclear Technology useful or harmful to mankind?

Jerry_Jia
AthenaMusic10

Nuclear Technology has brought many great benefit to our society. The use of Nuclear power plants, safe and clean power supply. Nuclear in medication field. But nonetheless, Nuclear Technology is definitely also very devastating to mankind. The invention of the NUKE bomb may vaporize millions of people in a split second. But for me, Nuclear Technology is far more beneficial than its counters. With the Nuclear Arsenal installed in all worlds superpowers (Chi...

Humans Are Initially Intended To Eat A Plant Based Diet

LiberalLogic101
samwight

First round is to declare your position and accept the debate. Second round is your opening argument. Third round is defending your opening argument. Fourth round is your closing argument. - I am on the position that the current human physiology (so please do not use species prior to homo sapiens in your argument) is more adapted to a plant based diet. A plant based diet is one in which the majority of the diet (or the entirety of the diet) is made up of non-animal products...

DNA Databases/profiling

kleigh

One major problem in crime is the mis-representation for ethnic minorities and young people. This creates an anti-police attitude. In fact, two in five black men already have their DNA on record compared to fewer than one in ten whites. Justice cannot properly be given to those in a majority gender or ethnicity that holds more protection compared to the minorities. DNA profiling can eliminate the bias in crime by giving solid evidence towards who the perpetrator is. A computer does not discrimin...
