Should animals be used for Scientific Experiments?

aliros619

Animals should not be used for Scientific experiments my first reason is: Reason 1: Animal species become endangered due to death in testing. Animal become endangered mostly because of mass deaths. Animal testing can cause those mass deaths. The act of animal testing kills millions of defenseless animals a year, causing endangerment or even extinction among a wide variety of species. For example lets take chimpanzees. Wild chimpanzees have been and still are protected by the law since 1990, b...

Theory of evolution is valid

Spud

I'm bored so starting a debate on this topic. Basically, if you are of the opinion that "macroevolution" is not feasible, then this is the debate for you. Evolution is defined as the change of allele frequencies over successive generations, and the subsequent diversification of life due to various factors. If you want to make a case for a different definition for evolution, go for it, but know that if you use "kinds" to classify populations of organisms in your definition of evolution, I w...

Should we be allowed to clone

21frykahla
SavvyShafe

No, we shouldn't be able to clone because it devalues human lives. If you clone yourself then you are just a copy there is nothing special about you. The success rate of cloning is very low and it is very expensive. If I was to have a pet that died then why would I spend $100,000 to get an exact clone of the dog when I can buy like 4 dogs for that price? We might even develop a new disease from forming new genes. People who are cloned maybe viewed differently or viewed as a lesser citizen then a...

Humans are responsible for global warming

CodyNiskanen

It's been said that humans are responsible for "Global Warming" due to our carbon emissions and high atmospheric pollution rate. While I agree that we are polluting the atmosphere at an extremely high rate, I disagree that, our carbon emissions are to blame. According to Science Magazine, measurements of ice core samples show that over the last four climactic cycles (past 240,000 years), periods of natural global warming preceded global increases in CO2. Also, A 2005 study published in Nature fo...

Human dominance on Planet Earth, will soon be superseded by sentient, electromechanical devices.

Sonofcharl

Human dominance is waning. Younger generations are already slaves to electronic devices. How long before we no longer call the shots. Fear not though. This is not stuff of horror movies or nightmares. This is simply evolution in progress. Rules: 5 open rounds. Use your own brain power. No referencing other peoples work/theories. 100 words max, per round. (Not 8000 characters) Enjoy!...

Is Ice A Mineral?

Emelin
CosmoJarvis

I started this debate to prove everyone my point. My position is that ice is NOT a mineral. Yes, it has all the requirements, but it should still be a mineral in ALL temperatures and forms. A form of ice is water, which is NOT a mineral....

In this debate, I will be challenging debate.org's favorite flat Earther Edlvsjd to another debate on the shape of the Earth. The rules are simple. 1. First round is for acceptance only. 2. Second round is for arguments only. No rebuttals, because that is for the third round. 3. No new arguments can be made in the third round. 4. Show some proof for your arguments......
