DNA Phenotyping

andrewz61
matthewz17

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...

Fictional_Truths1

Please note: I have made this debate impossible to accept. Inquire in the comments if you wish to debate this topic.PRO is arguing that it is logical to assume there are parallel universes. CON is refuting their arguments.This debate is not relying on evidence; it is not PRO's job to provide evidence of parallel universes but to show how they are logical.BoP is on PRO. Definitions LOGICAL - Goes along with logic, NOT relying on evidence ASSUME - Use...

Darwinism, Evolution by Natural Selection, and Athiesm is False and Un-scientific

Killerchicken12
Danielle

Darwinism is an out-dated and Un-proven philosophy. This Century-old idea of evolution and creation without a God is un-scientific, and requires much assumption in their far-reached conclusions that we have no creator, and that living things are capable of adding new genes to a gene pool. I would like to argue first off, that Darwinism, and Macro-Evolution for that matter, is a philosophy and not a scientific theory. Science can be accurately described as the study of observable...

There is no such thing as a virus

Akhenaten
ca2005

We have all been fooled by the medical system. Viruses don't exist. Viruses are illogical and can't exist, purely on a logical step by step analysis of what viruses are and how they are supposed to work. Nobody has ever seen a virus. The ones you see on the internet are just computer generated fakes or they sometimes show pictures of hormones and try to tell us that they are viruses. 1. How did the first person see a virus and know that it was a virus without having any reference material? A...

Should Farmers only be allowed to grow organic crops?

Stupidape

I would like to argue that farmers should not need to make all of their crops organic. My stance is that we have the tools and resources that help aid farmers farm more efficiently. By making farmers stick to organics it is detrimental to the farming community in the aspects of time and cost. For clarification sake, I consider organic crops anything that doesn't use pesticides, herbicides or GMOs....

Scientific Evidence Supports the Theory of Evolution

Muted
Wnope

This is in response to "Wnope"s Evolution Corner" http://debate.org/forums/religion/topic/26562/, where he has made the claim that creationists wet their pants when presented with the "actual math." As such, I want to see what Wnope is really made of and sent this challenge. The last debate he had was made solely to gain voting rights. For this debate, Definitions: Scientific evidence : Data gained through the scientific method, which can be summarized as "testable, repeatable, falsifia...
