The Whole World Should Vote On The US President

mintchocs
fo-shizzle0855

Only US citizens should vote as they are the ones that are fundamentally subjected to government treatment - all the decisions made by the US president have a direct effect on the American people; the government is supposed to "govern" its people (ie. it should have a direct tie with the people and reflect the general peoples' decisions, as ultimately it serves to "serve" the people). US citizens should be the priority of the US government and president, they should have the sole right and power...

It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of more innocent people.

Danger_Chams-Eddine

I stand for the affirmative in the case of "It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of more innocent people". I stand for the resolution and feel that it is morally permissible when only the person being killed, which in a different term to have their life put to an end, has agreed to being used in such a manner to save other lives. The scenario the resolution implies will not work for all situations and should not be used for all situations. Societies should not...

Cloning

gibsonm496

I was recently assigned a persuasion paper for school. My chosen topic is cloning. Before I began my research I knew very little about the topic, only that it was highly controversial. But after only some beginning research I now believe otherwise. Cloning is a process that should be continued. I feel this way because cloning has many health benefits. Such as, cloning can be used to clone failing organs to replace old, or damaged ones. Also, by cloning a child from a single parent hereditary d...

Determinism and free will completely contradict each other and cannot be both true simultaneously.

Goni
Nail_Bat

Determinism is defined as the philosophical doctrine that every state of affairs, including every human event, act, and decision is the inevitable consequence of antecedent states of affairs. Free will is defined as the power or ability of agents to to act otherwise than they in fact do. The Contender should explain how these two opposites can settle down together peacefully....

The Case For/Against Biotechnology/Bioengineering

scienceguy288
Forrest

There is so much wrong with the world at this point in time, disease, environmental destruction, agricultural problems etc. And many of these ills could be combated with the new field of biotechnology or bioengineering. I understand that the field carries with it potential risk, but there is the potential for huge reward. For example, medicine: biotechnology has the potential to cure/alleviate diseases like Hemophilia, Parkinson's, and Huntington's. Also, on the environmental front, t...

Space exploration is a waste of time and money

chuck_norris
vcheng

A lot of people may say that space exploration should be abolished because it is a waste of money, but think of how much we have advanced in our knowledge of space. This has to be known because some of the planets and moons we have discovered are suitable for us to live on when we move from Earth, so it is essential that man knows about space and we constantly have to keep updating and developing our knowledge. "I don't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread...
