Should sound waves and their physical repeating periodic forms be studied by scientists?
Debate Rounds (3)
First, let's define sound waves: Sound is a vibration that propagates as a mechanical wave of pressure and displacement, through some medium (such as air or water). Sometimes sound refers to only those vibrations with frequencies that are within the range of hearing for humans. (http://en.wikipedia.org...)
This being said, I would argue that sound waves CAN NOT be studied in their 'physical form' because they have no such form.
Now that we have determined that sound waves are not physical, we can rule out that they have anything to do with the origin of humanity, or the physical evolution of our form. I would urge the instigator to remember that evidence is key, nothing is gained by pseudo scientific arguments.
And don't deny that the pitch effects the experiments and that you yourself can physically see what sound would look like.
Let's define waves.
In physics, a wave is a disturbance or oscillation that travels through space and matter, accompanied by a transfer of energy.
While I admit, I misinterpreted the word 'physical' when stating my first argument, you seem to have misinterpreted the definition of a wave.
Now that we know that a sound wave can be defined as a vehicle for sound to move through, we can come to the inclusion that a sound wave itself can not be seen or truly felt. You can however see it's interaction with particles and matter due to the vibrations it causes, however it still only applies to one's sense of hearing.
Also, you still have yet to make an argument or offer evidence that a sound wave has any indication on humanity's origin or even define what you mean by this.

Reasons for voting decision: Con forfeited the last round, but he showed better conduct as Pro used ad hom attacks such as you are 17, you know nothing and things like that, when Con is a Physics student. Pro failed in providing any evidence for his claim that sound waves have anything to do with human origins, and seems to be confused between the effect of music itself in rhyme and melody on humans, and the actual effects of the sound waves themselves on our mind, which I guess is a fallacy of equivocation, if I understand Pro correctly. Nevertheless, because Pro did not provide any evidence for his initials claims, on of which is that sound waves have something to do with human origins, I'm inclined to give the arguments to Con although I agree with Pro that sound waves should be further investigated since scientists need to study everything as we're definitely going to learn new things, the more we study things.
