Recreating a dinosaur would be absolutely amazing, but the environmental ramifications would not be sustainable. Dinosaurs wouldn't be able to survive in our modern ecological systems as implementing a new predator into the food chain would cause a backlash resulting in the extinction of a variety of species which are essential for the survival of many eco systems.

The containment of dinosaurs for recreational purposes is out of the question as it is in our best interest that the safety of the people and environments are not endangered in any way, shape or form by artificial forces such as this.

Finally, we should prioritize our already endangered species rather than the extinct, as the survival of the species of today is more beneficial to us and the earth rather than the latter.

Hey, thanks for accepting. My argument is what I posted above so yea let's start there.

"Dinosaurs wouldn't be able to survive in our modern ecological systems as implementing a new predator into the food chain would cause a backlash resulting in the extinction of a variety of species which are essential for the survival of many eco systems."
-Cite your proof of the above statement.

"The containment of dinosaurs for recreational purposes is out of the question as it is in our best interest that the safety of the people and environments are not endangered in any way, shape or form by artificial forces such as this."
-What do you mean by "artificial"? Surely you don't mean that a recreation of the Dinosauric eco-sphere would be a mere replica? If so, then your above statements about endangering human life is invalid, as artificial creatures would be able to be managed and controlled by humans.

I'll say more in my next argument, but for now I'd just like to state that your claims come off as simple projections, rather than researched calculations. Show more proof.

An argument that "we shouldn't bring dinosaurs back to life because they will wreck havoc on the ecosystem" is stupid because we would never release the dinosaurs into the ecosystem. It would simply be a testament to human achievement, and certainly whoever managed to do this would win a noble prize.

I would say to Con, get some ambition.

Firstly , the one who is' for the topic ', does he have any idea to prepare a dinosaur egg? It is because the natural reproduction of dinosaur offspring is highly impossible .
