Why is it only 15 minutes between rounds?

I believe that Dinosaurs can be brought back.
There has already been extensive research in this area such as one way the can be brought back is through DNA That may be hard to find but once found it will be easy to start off the research.
For instance DNA was found from Trout and was then placed inside the Egg of a Salmon this created a trout with some side effects but the point is many people say no but the fact is once DNA is found it is possible
P.s Im sorry it is only 15 minutes...

The debate title says 'Dinosaurs' not 'Dinosaurs can be brought back'... Specify the resolution next time

"There has already been extensive research in this area such as one way the can be brought back is through DNA That may be hard to find but once found it will be easy to start off the research."

Getting its one DNA is one thing but making one come to life is a whole different thing.... There arent any reptiles alive today that can give birth to a velociraptor or T-rex since all the large reptiles dies out around 65 million years ago.....

Arguing that they should be brought back is also a lot different then arguing whether or not they could be brought back.... The fact that there are 3 Jurassic Park movies along with multiple sh*tty Sci-Fi movies about dinosaurs killing people after being brought back to life indicates that we certainly shouldnt bring them back, assuming we even could in the first place.

Seriously why are rounds only 15 minutes?

Im sorry I missed the last round.
Dinosaurs may be bad but my debate is they can be brought back not how bad it is. and in support of this there has been many research devoted to this and there are many extensive ways to bring them back

Please expand your resolution, otherwise you'll get badly trolled with something like "Dinosaurs are bad, they mismanaged the planet and brought on an ice age."

If the debate is over bringing them back, you'll need to specify a timeframe, and perhaps a number of species.

Reasons for voting decision: This debate was almost as stupid as the debate I made about being the stupidest debate. Pro shouldn't have made the round 15 minutes long, he even accidentally forfeited one of them.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro did not fulfill his BoP, Trying to morph dinosaur DNA with any living reptile today will not bring back dinosaurs, also you provided no evidence that dinosaur DNA exists. Which only casts more doubt.

Reasons for voting decision: Due to the weak resolution, and lack of points for or against dinosaurs, I'm not going to grade the arguments themselves... However a missed round remains poor conduct.
