KthulhuHimself

My opponent would like scientific proof of a divine creator. I feel that if there were scientific proof of a flat earth, this would in turn prove the former. My opponent will argue that the earth is spherical with empirical evidence, and I will argue that the earth is flat. Burden of proof is shared. Any media currently available can be used as evidence until that media or it's producer is proven falsified or untrustworthy. Opponent may start in R1 with his argument and forfeit the last round, o...

Hello Con, thank you for accepting this debate. I will now state my argument. I think A.I is a threat to the future of humanity because first, it will cause an economic crisis where approximately (based on mathematical calculations) 90~99% of the people in the world lose their jobs. Since now, A.Is have been only able to undertake simple or small jobs such as factory labors, but as the A.I industry develops, said A.I is now able to perform relatively complex tasks in various fields of expert...

For the past few years, cloning has become a more and more popular subject. In fact, many think it could have positive effects and others are against it.

DNA Phenotyping

In June, the Supreme Court ruled that it is constitutional to take DNA samples from people who have been arrested for serious crimes"without a warrant, much less a conviction. Like bits of DNA taken from people found guilty, those samples can be entered into a database and used not only for the case at hand, but compared to other crime scene samples, connecting the arrestee to past crimes. The case before the Supreme Court focused on Alonzo Jay King, Jr., who was arrested for assault...
