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...

Star Trek technology is achievable

Heineken
philochristos

The technology on Star Trek is reasonably achievable. While the technology is inherently fictional, the function of the technology could be duplicated in the real world, including it's practical application.I have provided a list of Star Trek technology. My opponent must choose one of these listed fictional technologies and argue why it's impossible to create. My burden of proof will be to explain why it is possible to create such a technology.

dtaylor971

Animals can further our understand of science vastly by experimentation, as well as save millions of lives.. Would you rather a albino rat die or a young girl with leukemia die? Most people (unless you belong to PETA which is another debate entirely) would prefer the girl....

My opponent must first accept. You can take this serious or not, it's up to the person. I am for me saying that what the topic of this debate is true. My opponent must prove my statement false. I will prove it to be truth. Accept, and then round 2 will commence, and the debate will get rolling. I hope to get a worthy opponent that know his science and like icecream. :P...
