We humans occupy a infinitesimally small part of the cosmos and we don't even have the slightest idea of the scale of the universe we are dealing with. Upon that we have
ventured out to explore the entire cosmos with tiny little specs of dust called spacecraft's .my argument is do we really have the knowledge of the entire cosmos that we have the 'permission' to explore.arent we aware of the fact that exploring the cosmos disturbs the harmony of its existence.

I thank my partner for creating this debate.

RESOLUTION: "Humans were not meant to leave Earth"

My partner is PRO, and I will be CON. I argue that "humans weren't not meant to leave the Earth". BoP is fully on PRO, yet I feel that I should clarify some things.


Taking the "meant to" part in my consideration, I conclude that my partner believes in a higher power (from now reffered to as THE POWER), be it God or evolution or aliens, that had humanity in mind for something. I will assume it's unproven existance.

THE POWER gave us a brain. That brain, after quite extensive thinking and approximately 120,000 years of calculating things that are somewhat off topic, gave us a spacecraft. THE POWER obviously meant for us to leave, because otherwise we wouldn't have had the brain to create a spacecraft.

This is my logic. We can make it, we can use it. No higher power involved.


Awaiting further posts...

I have no points to extend, and PRO has not fulfilled the BoP. I hope that this is due to some accidental lack of internet or something as trivial as that, and I await my partner's opening points.

Hope to hear from you soon...

I used to think that flying in a plane was like leaving the earth, and that clouds were simply part of G-ds beard.

Meant as in a godlike figure did not want them to do so or they did not evolve for the purpose of leaving the planet?
