Is the US prepared for biological terrorism?

RNG_REKT
RichardDawkinsIsBae

Pro is traditionally supposed to go first; I can live with the fact that I get one less speech. Go ahead in the very first speech, I don't care. Try to make it a really informational speech. I want a very competent opponent, and I don't want any forfeiture. Failure to follow both of my expectations means that I win. The judges will decide whether or not both of us are competent enough debaters. Thank you....

Philosophy: Determinism Accurately Describes Reality

GeoLaureate8
Danielle

In this debate, my opponent is taking the hard determinist stance that everything in the whole of existence is predetermined. My duty is to demonstrate that some things are not determined, and I will also present a case for free will. Definitions: Determinism - The philosophical doctrine that every state of affairs, including every human event, act, and decision is the inevitable consequence of antecedent states of affairs. [1] Free Will - The philosophical doctrine that the conduct of...

Definitions LOGICAL - Goes along with logic, NOT relying on evidence ASSUME - Use...

Lab rats shouldn't be experimented on

Lovetheworld4real
dietorangesoda

I noticed that you support lab rats being experimented on. I'm hear to oppose that. First of all, it's cruel to experiment on any creature, and certainly not right. Mice and rats can be killed and hurt in the process of experimentation. Also, mice and rats are different from humans and have different allergies and resistances. Therefore it's not only cruel to experiment on them, but pointless....
