Mosquitos kill more people than sharks.


I, pro, will defend the position that mosquitos, do in fact, kill more people than sharks. Due to scientific studies, Mosquitoes kill 2 to 3 million people per yer, while infecting about 200 million people per year. My proof is proved in this wikipedia entry: A shark attack is an attack on a human by a shark. Every year around 100 shark attacks are reported worldwide. Seventeen fatalities were recorded as having being caused by shark attacks in 2011, out of 118 recorded attacks.[1] Despi...

Speed of light proves Earth is older than 6000 years old. (Not disproving the Bible)


Many people say and think evolution is false mainly because of what the Bible says in Genesis. And in Genesis it says, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.": this is true. There is much much more about how the Earth was created, and I cannot paste all of that in here with out cluttering this debate. SO, you may wonder how the speed of ligh...

Thorium or Uranium?


Should we use thorium or uranium in our reactors. I have read several anecdotes on this and I have also looked at several lectures on this by Kirk Sorensen. Here is one of his lectures - - I believe that the thorium reactors are the future for nuclear energy. They are safer for one and also thorium is much more abundant than uranium. If the next piece of your argument is that thorium still has to be converted into uranium-233[fissile] to actually be...

Food Irradiation

Animal testing should be banned!


Animals feel just as much pain as humans do. The only difference is that they do not have a voice. Millions of innocent animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits, and many others, die each year due to the gruesome torture of animal testing. Animal testing should be banned for its cruelty, inefficiency, and uselessness. The killing of harmless animals for human testing and research is malevolent. Many multi-product manufacturers, including Johnson & Johnson and Clorox, poison and abuse animals durin...
