Fire Is Alive

I will be arguing that fire is alive. If you accept, your job is to argue that fire is not alive. There is no burden of proof- both sides have to prove their point equally. For the purposes of this debate, the characteristics something needs to be alive are movement, respiration, sensitivity, growth, reproduction, excretion, and nutrition. For further definitions of these terms, see here: https://www.sciencelearn.org.nz/resources/14-characteristics-of-living-things First round is acceptanc...

If you were to be animal tested, having a fifty fifty chance in surviving, you would be freaked out. And don't deny it. I know that there wouldn't be enough prisoners to test. That's why you hardly see any news about "prisoner testing". BUT, there are good alternatives to animal testing. Unless you ar...
