Does science fundamentally have the ability to 'play god'?

AgnosticPanda
Blade-of-Truth

If science is " knowledge about or study of the natural world based on facts learned through experiments and observation" and it is through human ingenuity and creativity that have allow us to manipulate the surrounding environment to create technology which is the embodiment of that manipulation. Is it fundamentally possible for science to 'cross into gods realm and play god'? http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/science...

Dogs vs. cats

dogsrthbest
lolpas

Dogs are said to be MUCH better than cats, and I believe it. While warped and stunted contrarians turn their backs on man's beat friend, warm, happy people are walking their dogs. Man's best friend is only the proper name for these elegant, loyal, beautiful creatures. cats are also too lazy for humankind. cat lovers always say, "dogs are too happy, messy, and stupid for humankind" well, here's a news flash. If cleanliness were the only factor in deciding what pet to get, we wouldn't have cats, e...

There are no theological changes to the Hebrew Old Testament

Truth_seeker
theskeptik

Happy to debate a good friend of mine. I hope the voters constructively give their RFD on the most effective argument rather than on bias. In this debate,i will argue that the Hebrew Old Testament has essentially no errors that would affect biblical theology. I will argue for the Septuagint's superiority to the Masoretic text and at the same time, i will argue that the Masoretic text has attempted to remove messianic references to a divine Messiah in the Hebrew Tanakh. It is not enough to sa...

The Kalam Cosmological Argument

His_Majesty
SweetLiberty

I"d like to thank my opponent for his eager acceptance of this debate regarding the kalam cosmological argument. This is, in my opinion, is the best argument for the existence of God. It has been revolutionized by the likes of William Lane Craig (WLC) for the past 30 years, but its history has been rooted back to Islamic medieval thought. It is WLC"s version that I will be defending in this debate. This argument is as follows: P1. Everything that begins to exist has a cause P2. The univers...

Jodi Arias is innocent *Fall Tier Tournament- round 2*

Wylted
TN05

I want to start by thanking BSH1 for hosting this tournament and TNO5 for participating in it.A few things to keep in mind, is that my opponent has to show that Jodi Arias is guilty of murder beyond a reasonable doubt. I don't have to prove her innocence. I only have to show reasonable doubt. I plan to do this through a self defense argument, but am not limited to self defense arguments.

StarCraft 2 (Pro) vs Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 (Con) - Gameplay

mman777mw
derFuhrer

While I enjoy the playing both games I Believe StarCraft 2 is better because you are able to create worker units. Another great feature about StarCraft 2 is the pop. cap because it limits the number of units the play can have on the battlefield at one time forcing the player to think critically and tactically rather than spamming one unit type and throwing this unit at the enemy until victory is achieved. (Before I make any further points I will allow my opponent to refute my claims and present...
