Should Animals Be Used for Scientific or Commercial Testing?

Animalana
a_mysterious_stranger

Animal testing should not be used. For one, scientists still test it on humans anyways. Two, animals have a different anatomy when compared to humans, causing their result to be different from that of a human. Animal testing is cruelty to animals, yet scientists get away with it. The Animal Welfare Act allows animals to be burned, shocked, poisoned, isolated, starved, forcibly restrained, addicted to drugs, and brain-damaged. No experiment is prohibited, and painkillers aren't required. Even if...

Is Time Travel Possible?

Brian123456

The first round is acceptance only. Pro (me) will accept the BoP (burden of proof). Con will negate this notion and prove that any degree of time travel is not and will never be possible. To prevent semantics loopholes, here is the definition of time travel:Time travel(noun): Hypothetical transport through time into the past or the future.[1]Sources are mandatory for...

CO2 is killing the planet, all breathing things, except those that know this, should stop or do less of it right now, to save the planet for those that know this. That is the global warmists, (er,... climate changologists?) status quo, and you will better off if you are one of they, for reasons of self esteem, the greatest drug ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...

Bipolar vs Unipolar. A unique argument of unfactoids.

Max.Wallace

Science tells us if you are Bipolar, you have a problem, a medical one that only those with the big brains of Unipolarism can diagnose. I would suggest that if you do not get mad or sad at anything then you are unipolar. I have not been diagnosed, by capitalist or communists. I know myself. What is your self diagnosis? A) Not bipolar? B) Unipolar? C) Undecided? D) none of the above? Lets have a verbal skirmish. The truth in my mind is that Unipolar people, those with all...

RevL8ion
stylishBOY

The title's pretty self-explanatory. Because I'm a whole lot better at mathematics than debating, and there's really nothing math-related here, I'd like to start perhaps the first math debate in all of DDO. Here are the rules.Oh wait, first, I'd like to tell you to do something: Hold your tongue with your fingers and say "I like to math debate." If you know what I mean...anyway:The first round is always acceptance only...
