The Earth is flat

Hello, I have recently noticed quite a lot debates concerning the shape of the Earth, and so I was motivated to instigate a similar one, issued to SilverishGoldNova. However, anyone that is interested in taking the position of Pro may notify me in the comments or via private message. I contend that the Earth is not flat. I do not think there is a need to define something in particular. Rules: 1. Please, do not forfeit. 2. No insults or ad hominem. 3. No use of external links solely as arg...

See below. --Rules-- 1. This is a "Best Two", traditional format. "Best Two" indic...

I call myself a skeptic on every issue. I'm not saying all these scientists and politicians are lying but I am saying that they don't have enough evidence to prove certain claims such as "humans are the main cause of climate change." However this debate is not about climate change, it's about skepticism and its place in science.

Animal Experiments/Testing

Solnimal
Keropee

Cons No Never it should not be allowed and banned. Animal testing is inhumane and cruel to animals. Just because we want to be safe you feed or inject unknown chemicals in them just to see it is safe for us. Some are just for curiosity! When people "test" if products are safe. they force animals to eat it observe if they live or not if they live to treat, they stay there for the rest of their life since birth until with a little chance being rescued. These days people use dog breed beagles not...
