omosexuality = a genetic disorder

Gravity waves prove the existence of aether


The recent discovery of gravity waves both confirms and disproves relativity. Einstein predicted the existence of gravity waves. (Very clever). Einstein also said that there was no aether. (very stupid) A gravity wave has no way of traveling through space if there is no medium to travel through.

Australia's laws on Embryonic Research are outdated.


As research is conducted in other countries, they have identified genes in zygotes with could prevent miscarriages from occurring. However, if this research was conducted in Australia, the scientist behind this groundbreaking research would be put in jail for 15 years. Does Australia need to re-think its policies/laws about this research? Does it prevent us from moving forward in this field of research? what about the future of our country? how could this research benefit/harm Australia? Th...

We can't see visible light.


Visible light is the term given to the range of electromagnetic radiation which our eyes detect. When our eyes detect light, they send electrical impulses to different parts of our brain. One of these parts is the optic centre and here the brain interprets these electrical impulses and creates a visual representation of what's in front of us. This simulation is the reality we perceive. It's here that we see things. What we see are objects or matter which emit, reflect, refract, scatter or absorb...

Okay Tejretics chose these judges for the most part, I just agreed. I finally found time to put some effort and energy into debating. I'm sick of seeing the God debates and even sicker of seeing people who actually specialize in nothing but God debates. With that being said, one of you guys with no life and way too much free time who spend all day debating the same topic over and over are welcome to apply in the comments. I'll accept the best opponents, from those who specialize in this ty...
