Whole Body Transplants for Life Extension: Too Yucky?

alderon67
Sonofcharl

I love the idea of extending life through a whole body transplant/brain transplant, but some people simply think it is too yucky. If we are going to die any way, then why not? (We'll pretend for the debate that science has achieved the ability to grow a whole body in a lab (minus a brain) so you wouldn't use the body of someone who has died.)...

Cloning

Since the art of cloning has not been mastered yet their is a big chance something can go wrong. Example "Dolly the sheep" started with deaths of numerous newborns One dolly came into being from 277 fused eggs, which itself indicates the grim success rate of the cloning process. It humans try it can come with uncontrollable results such as abnormal development, genetic damage, malformation and diseases in the clone We want to clone humans because we think they will live longer but the clones...

The city of Chicago being visible from the opposite shore, proves the earth is not a sphere.

Ramshutu2
Edlvsjd

One of Edlvsjd core arguments made in support of Flat earth (and against a spherical earth) is that the City of Chicago is visible from the opposite shore of Lake Michigan, something he states is not possible on a spherical earth, and effectively demonstrates that the earth is flat. This debate is Edlvsjd's opportunity to argue that this is the case. Rules: - As Edlvsjd is going to be supporting his claim, his FIRST round should be used for opening arguments; Edlvsjd should write "Last...

GMOs

I want voting privileges on this website so somebody please debate me on the topic of GMOs! I would love for a Con to maybe present ideas I hadn't previously thought of or even make me reconsider my point of view. Here are only 3 arguments (for the sake of brevity), which I believe stem from science, empirical evidence, and logic. I can provide more sources for each point if Con wants. 1. GMOs have been proven by numerous independently-funded, long-running studies to be relatively safe....

Evolutionism vs Creationism

Israel.Hadden
ProffesorSavage

Through an amazing amount of evidence including astrology, archeology, biology, philosophy, and historical studies, I have found Creationism to be the only plausible answer for the beginning and purpose for life. Not only any Creator however, but the Creator that is clearly outlined in the Bible. I have found it true that Jesus was the son of God, did many miracles, and rose again. I would prefer an Atheist with many counter arguments to be involved in this debate....

Existence of Creator- Yes or No, BoP on Pro

JimShady
QueenDaisy

I've looked through your profile/voting log and it seems you are firmly atheist. Therefore I challenge you to a friendly debate: I must prove that a creator exists, and you must try to prove that a creator does not exist. BoP is only on me. Round 1: will be for acceptance Round 2: Arguments, no rebuttals Round 3: Rebuttals, no new arguments. Please accept, this will be a quick debate and fun too....
