Mankind Is the Main Cause of Global Warming

Ron-Paul
Numidious

You have asked to debate this first, so I am sending you the challenge directly. My last opponent on this subject forfeited, so I want to try this resolution again. Full Resolution: Mankind is the main cause of global warming. I, as con, will argue that it is of natural causes, not mankind. We will NOT be arguing if global warming exists or not, it will be assumed that it does. Only if global warming has an anthropogenic cause. Definitions: Mankind: "The human race; human being...

Race is a Poor Indicator for Differences Between Humans

kylet357
NDECD1441

I am starting this debate as another one I took part in with a similar subject didn't continue past my acceptance of the debate. I'm going to explain my position(s): -I am of the opinion that race is poorly defined in general, and does not hold any scientific weight. The slight variations in skin colour and any other physical properties does not warrant any reason to separate these so-called 'races' of humanity, and this goes two-fold for those that hold these races to be separate species of hu...

Simple debate. Definitions: *Animal testing: Animal testing, also known as animal experimentation, animal research, and in vivo testing, is the use of non-human animals in experiments (although some research about animals involves only natural behaviors or pure observation, such as a mouse running a maze or field studies of chimp troops). (https://www.google.com/searchq=Animal+testing#q=Animal+testing+definition) *Scientific Testing:principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of...

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...

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...
