RoyLatham

==Clarification== I will be arguing that mankind IS the cause of global warming, my opponent will be arguing that mankind is NOT the main driver of modern climate change. My opponent, therefore, is arguing that the theory of anthropogenic climate change is incorrect. This is pretty straightforward.

Should we utilize flu shots to combat influenza?

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....
