Should we be able to genetically engineer humans?

We should not be able to genetically engineer humans because in doing so, we take away the right of diversity and individuality that each of us possess. It is also not fair to those who are genetically engineered. ...

I will be taking Pro on this one, and the opponent will be delegated as Con.

There is most likely an intelligent creator of the universe

tejretics

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...

Theory of evolution is valid

Spud
xxmanguyxx

I'm bored so starting a debate on this topic. Basically, if you are of the opinion that "macroevolution" is not feasible, then this is the debate for you. Evolution is defined as the change of allele frequencies over successive generations, and the subsequent diversification of life due to various factors. If you want to make a case for a different definition for evolution, go for it, but know that if you use "kinds" to classify populations of organisms in your definition of evolution, I w...

does everything need a creator?

megatronnus
CivilianName295

The very existence of God has come into place because we didn't and still don't know who created the universe. But it is time to question, does everything need a creator? You may say yes because we have created many things such as the internet, laptop, site etc. But we have never created a planet, or made something out of nothing. Is it really that hard to think that the universe has no creator?...

Should we be allowed to clone

21frykahla
SavvyShafe

No, we shouldn't be able to clone because it devalues human lives. If you clone yourself then you are just a copy there is nothing special about you. The success rate of cloning is very low and it is very expensive. If I was to have a pet that died then why would I spend $100,000 to get an exact clone of the dog when I can buy like 4 dogs for that price? We might even develop a new disease from forming new genes. People who are cloned maybe viewed differently or viewed as a lesser citizen then a...
