Should people be able to keep exotic animals?

AnimalJamRocks
Mal618

One reason why people shouldn"t be able to keep exotic animals is because they are very hard to take care of. Exotic animals aren"t very good companions. They need lots of attention, space, and when they grow up, lots and lots of food. If the animals needs aren"t met, they could suffer....

Should we utilize flu shots to combat influenza?

x96201
SkySky16

1) The continued laboratory-developed flu shot has encouraged the continued natural development of a vaccine-resistant virus. I fear that this will possibly lead to an influenza strain that may be beyond the capabilities of scientists and doctors to combat. Our search for survivability and well-rounded health may actually become our downfall when we have reached a point where we cannot stop, or even slow, the progress of the virus. 2) Researching, developing, and utilizing vaccines (not limited...

Genetic Modification on Humans

zeon
Asoz

I believe that genetic modification on humans should be legal, but well-regulated. I think that humans should be able to be cured of genetic diseases, as well as the parents being given options of the child's physical appearance/traits. I do not think that genetic modification (namely CRISPR) should be used to create anything that is not human, no humans with gills for example. I look forward to an interesting debate on this subject with anybody who will challenge me in this regard....

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......

Should smoking be banned?

PsychocisTheory

Smoking is something that can kill you. When you are near someone that is smoking, you get affected too. It may feel nice, but if you look at your body after you have smoked, you see that the smoking has greatly harmed your insides. STOP SMOKING NOW....

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....
