For the purpose of the argument: Aliens - A species of extraterrestrial beings that possesses consciousness and are intelligent enough contact humans.

Anyone willing to argue that aliens probably don't exist in our Universe, feel fre...

Evolution proves that god is real

UnknownOne
Fkkize

This debate is about evolution- does evolution prove that God is real?I will contend in this debate that evolution does prove God is real. Your con position will attempt to prove that evolution discredits the concept of God (which is the typical position, so you can perhaps get some hints from other sources).Argument 1: (Creation)God is typically defined as the one who "creates the universe". In our observable universe, there is in fact...

Government Polocies/Laws For (Outer) Space

TerryEmeigh02
Rawtheran

I believe that there should be no rules for space. My perspective of this is that space, is not owned by a country, nor government. So, who is to say what we can or cannot do in space? If someone were to colonize Mars, for example, they'd more then likely begin a new government. Take for example, the USA. The U.S., was formed by Britain and other "colonizing countries." However, when they got here, they had no "rules" to abide by. They didn't have to buy plots of land, and they surely didn't hav...

There are a lot of basic benefits of IVF. There's a good amount of people that are unable to conceive a child, and IVF will allow them to do so. Not only does IVF allow couples to have a child, but single women and same sex couples as well. IVF will also provide them with a sperm donor if needed. If a parent or a woman's IVF cycle is unsuccessful, the embryos from other people may be donated and be used to enable the embryo recipients to have a child. People undergo IVF for several reasons; so...
