Black people will slowly turn into a sub-species.

CosmoJarvis

All humans are currently Homo-Sapiens. It is my belief that black people will devolve (depending on how you look at it) into Homo-Africanis. This does not mean they will be gay Africans, but rather they will become a new species of ape. This has a lot to do with natural selection taking place in Africa, where many people are dying from lack of food. Therefore those that can survive while only eating very little will live to pass on their genes. This will make any gene that benefits survival...

Is Human Activity the Primary Cause for Global Climate Change

haydoneos12

Good Afternoon I am opening a debate on whether or not humans are the leading cause of global climate change. The definition of climate change is here; https://www.science.org.au/learning/general-audience/science-booklets-0/science-climate-change/1-what-climate-change Pro will argue that humans are the leading cause of climate change. Con will argue that humans are not the leading cause and must outline what or who is responsible for climate change. First round acceptance only....

Would It be wise to inject AIDs into your balls?

slightlyirategentleman

I am not a troll please refer to my previous debate, where I argued that we should raze Detroit to the ground and build a huge wheel in its place, where black people would push this wheel to generate power. http://www.debate.org/debates/Is-my-solution-to-the-current-energy-crisis-a-good-one/1/ I firmly believe there can be exceptional circumstances where injecting AIDs into your balls might be considered wise. Please only accept if you will see the debate through until the end. Defin...

The Earth is flat

Edlvsjd

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......

Theory of evolution is valid

Spud
xxmanguyxx

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...

Should Animal Testing be Legal?

Twiggy1612
Plasmastrike

Human beings act on instinct. Animals do not have that ability. That is a well known fact. However, does this simple ability distinguish us so much that while you are barely allowed touch another human, you can do completely immoral experiments to animals? I hope not, my friends. While I agree that for diseases such as Swine Flu, animals should be treated on, I find it cruel to test in perfectly healthy animals. I hope the audience can see my point on this matter....

Humans are both physically and mentally superior to most animals.

Logicality1
atomicgunner

Human beings are superior to most other life on Earth because we fight and think in a different way than most animals. Mentally, we exceed all life easily because we don't need to do things like hunt, or constantly work for food. Since the first easy sources of food, humans haven't needed to put in as much time or energy hunting for food, instead using that time to think and plan. Our brains are also designed to adapt much more easily than most other species. Physically, we also beat most animal...
