We should euthanize all piranhas and vultures.

Evil1
toamatt26

Piranhas and Vultures are very dangerous animals and has been human kinds natural enemy since the beginning of Earth. All though many animals of many different kinds attack us humans all the time, Piranhas and vultures seem to dangerous and useless to be able to live. Scientists should create a deadly chemical to release in the air that only kill vultures. This could take years but the results when it works would be terriffic. As with the piranha problem, we should send bombs to only kill them....

The concept of "Zero" proves that nothing can actually be treated as something!

Juan_Pablo
sorar3

Often, people tend to think of nothing as void of anything; a condition where absolutely nothing exist. But quantum mechanics doesn't treat empty space as genuinely empty - but a condition where something does exist, but in a completely neutral form! The concept of "zero" has merit here. The physicist Paul Dirac showed that "empty space" could be treated as consisting of a bunch of tightly-packed electrons with negative charge. He proposed that when...

should Socrates have killed himself

mareym
Lopezc31

Socrates didn't matter; he only annoyed his fellow Athenians and made them look stupid. He also spread unorthodox stories of the gods. The evidence he uses to defend is case is dubious at best since all the authorities he draws upon are dead. "Chaerephon is dead himself but this brother, who is in court, will confirm the truth of the story" as shown by this statement the originator of the tale of Socrates"s wisdom is dead and all we have to go upon is hearsay....

Shared BoP Is Elitist

Daktoria
Lizard

This debate is about the characteristic of burden of proof in public policy debates. To demonstrate, Con and Pro will pretend to be two people actually participating in a social program. Con will be a "strong" person. Pro will be a "weak" person. Before participation, Pro was skeptical of the social program necessarily being safe and respectful. Pro did not have evidence in advance of experience which proved the social program's unreliability, so was forced to "go with the program"....
