Simple debate.

( *Scientific Testing:principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of...

Experimenting on animals for science purposes shouldn't be banned


Experimenting on animals for scientific purposes should not be banned because of several things, such as : 1. There is no such things as rights for animals,that's why scientist have been experimenting on animals. If there is rights for animals that means every human being must be a vegetarian. 2.If scientist don't use animals for experiment on diseases and cures then there's no medicine for such diseases. Imagine one of your family suffer a disease with cure that can't be found because scienti...

Most don't know what science is or how science operates.


Science is dead. Kids aren't being taught what science is or how it operates because the teachers and professors and scientists themselves no longer know what science is or how it operates. We are now living in the new dark ages. Because the vast majority no longer understand how science operates, most are now gullible to believing whatever they are told to believe is true 'by science'. Very few know how to think for themselves - to reason - to use logic anymore so they have no choice but to...

Is it reasonable to question the theory of evolution?


This is a re-do of a previous debate I had with Jay Shay. We would have finished the debate, but life got in the way and I had to forfeit the last two rounds. We will simply be copy-pasting the arguments we made. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ For this debate, I will not necessarily be trying to prove evolution is false, nor will I be trying to prove there is a god. For this debate, I will simply be trying to prove that it is reas...

Given the available data, denying the theory of evolution is completely unreasonable


This debate should be impossible to accept, comment if you want to debate. Some clarifications: - I will have most (if not all) of the BoP, but my opponent should feel free to present any arguments he/she deems useful, either against evolution or in favor of an alternate theory. - The first round is for acceptance and I would like my opponent to present his/her position very quickly. - My first argument will be mostly copy pasted from one of my earlier debate, so don't be surprised...

Scientific evidence does not support Evolution


I will be arguing that that evolution has not been proven scientifically and any evidence used to support it could be reasonably explained from a creation viewpoint. Since the theory of evolution is taught in schools as science, and creation is presented as religious, the burden of proof is on con to show that evolution can and did happen. Science - Knowledge gained from observation, experimentation, and demonstration (Can be proven). Evidence - The available body of facts or information ind...

DNA Phenotyping


In June, the Supreme Court ruled that it is constitutional to take DNA samples from people who have been arrested for serious crimes"without a warrant, much less a conviction. Like bits of DNA taken from people found guilty, those samples can be entered into a database and used not only for the case at hand, but compared to other crime scene samples, connecting the arrestee to past crimes. The case before the Supreme Court focused on Alonzo Jay King, Jr., who was arrested for assault...

Darwinism, Evolution by Natural Selection, and Athiesm is False and Un-scientific


Darwinism is an out-dated and Un-proven philosophy. This Century-old idea of evolution and creation without a God is un-scientific, and requires much assumption in their far-reached conclusions that we have no creator, and that living things are capable of adding new genes to a gene pool. I would like to argue first off, that Darwinism, and Macro-Evolution for that matter, is a philosophy and not a scientific theory. Science can be accurately described as the study of observable...
