We are designed to live on Earth.

The moon is way more interesting than Earth.. I think that it would be great to live on the moon because there would be so much that we could learn. From what astronauts have said, watching the earth as you rotate around it is the most beautiful thing ever seen.

Thank you for accepting.

1)" I think that it would be great to live on the moon because there would be so much that we could learn. " Of course because it is a new planet :). But that does not mean that the moon is better than the Earth.
2)"From what astronauts have said, watching the earth as you rotate around it is the most beautiful thing ever seen."Scenic view of Earth from moon is not a proof.

Live on Earth is better. Why?
1) There is an atmosphere.
2)There is water.
3)Humans have been living here since long ago.

I know why you would say that, but we could transport all of the water we need and we could definitely use oxygen tanks. And the atmosphere is polluted anyways. I think it's time for a change!

Yes, but:

1)You must transport all the water to be consumed by the present generation and for those to come. Transportation also poses problem.
2)" and we could definitely use oxygen tanks" yes, but for how long?.
3)"And the atmosphere is polluted anyways" But is it so much that me and you cannot live?.
4)Because life on earth has spent the last 4.5 billion years adapting to survive on this particular planet. So take the results (the plants, animals or people) somewhere that"s not Earth, and the chances are we"ll have problems.
5)Let me give you a few examples. Our flimsy bodies evolved under the pressure of the atmosphere, and are influenced by the exact pulling power of Earth"s gravity. Stick us somewhere with too little pressure, and we explode. Too much, and we implode. Gravity too strong? We can"t move. Gravity too weak? Our muscles waste away.

Then there"s the temperature and the breathable atmosphere. Human beings have to maintain a body temperature of around 37"C to stay healthy. At just a few degrees higher or lower, we die of hypothermia (being too cold) or hyperthermia (being too hot). We also need to breathe oxygen " but if the air contains too little or too much, we die of hypoxia or oxygen toxicity.

Humans would love to learn to adapt to the moon.

Reasons for voting decision: Short RFD really. Pro made actual arguments, and although he has the BOP, it didn't really get refuted by Con. She gave her opinion, and that's about it
