Intelligent Design should be taught alongside Evolution in science class, in USA High Schools.

The existence and possibility of Intelligent Design is a complicated topic, that throughout history has been debated by many people and important figures. Some arguments extend furthur. They extend to the topic of "Should Intelligent Design also be taught in science class?" I believe it should not. There are many reasons why not including: A) Intelligent Design is not a Science. B) Intelligent Design is purely a smokescreen for fanatical Christian and Islamic (or any "Jesus/God-believing"...

Missionary style is the best way to have sex.

Granted this is all subjective but I think that missionary style is the best way to have sex. I'm not saying that one's sex life should involve exclusively the missionary position. Good sex involves a variety of sex positions and experimentation but this isn't to suggest that there isn't a single superior position. I'll present my basic arguments for this opening section and I hope the Con can offer an alternative position to contend with my assertion. 1.) Missionary is more comfortable for b...

NASA Should Assume Role in Investigating UFO Documentation

DocORock

Debatable point: NASA should assume an authoritative role in investigating UFO documentation. Rather than assert that NASA should investigate all sightings or personal claims of sightings, abductions or alien encounters, the idea is that NASA collect, analyze and report on CERTAIN well-DOCUMENTED sightings. "CERTAIN" implies that the documentation analyzed will be at the discretion of an educated, interested team of NASA scientists. The word "DOCUMENTED" involves only sightings recorded by photo...

What came first, the chicken or the egg? This is a very old question. I want to debate on it. The egg came first from the time of the dinosaurs. The chicken came later on....

cyborgism: genetic modification of humans

gata2008
jazz123

science is quickly developing towards cyborgism. we can imagine a world in which genetic modifications such as those used to increase output and quality of agricultural products could be used to enable certain biological capabilities in humans that evolution has not as of yet permitted. What is the moral and ethical debate surrounding the genetic modification of humans? WOULD IT BE FAVORABLE FOR HUMANS TO BE ABLE TO OBTAIN A SURGERY GIVING HIM OR HER WINGS TO FLY?...

Scientifically speaking, abortion should not be legal.

Much of the debate surrounding abortion is whether or not a fetus is a person. If they are a person, I think most agree that they should have some fundamental rights. So what does science have to say about all this? Well, genetically speaking, a fetus is genetically indistinguishable from a baby, a child, or an adult. If you define personhood genetically, a fetus is as much a person as you or I, and entitled to the same fundamental rights. Now, this definition of personhood may not be the...

We cannot know anything empirically.

Nietzsche says that all truths are merely metaphors that have lost their sensuous force. In other words we cannot know anything. His reasoning for that is that our perceptions of our senses are all translations of translations (e.g. in touch we have the physical touch which is translated to the wholly different medium of nerve signal, which is translated to the wholly different medium of perception)...

The 1969 Moon Landing Was A Complete Hoax

RMK
presreynolds

During my sophomore year of college, I presented a persuasive speech for a Speech course that changed my opinion about one of the biggest "accomplishments" of the 20th century. What I'm about to state may excite you, anger you, make you ponder, or make you think that I have a screw loose... If you stayed up to watch the 1969 moon landing, you saw cinematic magic at its best. That's right, the moon landing was about as real as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. When I originally did the re...

The environmental impact of industrialization is the primary cause of earth's current warming trend.

Collegebro

Many opponents of Global Warming Theory will point to the cyclical nature of earth's climate system and suggest that the current trend is simply a natural rise in temperature due to this cycle. This theory is false. Although Earth cycles through warm and cold climate periods, the environmental impact of human industrialization is the primary cause of the current warming trend. In order to understand the role that Carbon Dioxide plays in earth's natural climate cycles, several factors must be...
