Aloha my dear debaters! Dracon here with another debate; Whether or not we should revive the dinosaurs.

For this debate, I will be taking the Con side and argue as to why we
should not.

I do have some rules for this debate;
  1. I request that Times New Roman Font be used along font size 12.
  2. Should either side forfeit, they have admitted defeat and there points should be relinquished to the victor.
  3. This is an open debate. Anyone may join.
  4. Respect should be given to both sides.
  5. Sources must be cited, if any are used.
  6. Have fun!

This first round shall be used for acceptance. Good luck!

There is not a physical way to revive dinosaurs. Regular DNA cannot survive more than 500 years.

Perhaps I should have been more specific. Propose we could revive them. Should we is the question.

I for one say no for a plethora of reasons that shall now be explained:

Environment
If we were to revive the dinosaurs we'd need to introduce them to a totally new environment, where the food chain has become progressively smaller. This could bring a huge crisis to ecosystems as carnivores could over-eat their food sources seeing as they are so much smaller. Not to mention the fact that if they brought to an area even relatively cold, it could prove drastically dangerous to them.

People
The world has over 7 billion people in it now. It's obvious that people would love to see real life dinosaurs, but that brings up an issue; How do we protect these people? It would be quite dangerous to have these historic reptiles anywhere on Earth, seeing as people live nearly everywhere, with the poles being the exception, but dinosaurs would not survive in the poles, seeing as they're cold blooded.

That'll be all for now. Sorry for how long it took me to respond. I got lazy.

As stated in the rules, forfeiting results in defeat, so therefore I have won. Now we must wait.

So basically, you were debating if we should make Jurassic Park a reality.

Reasons for voting decision: No name calling occurred, so conduct is tied. I don't notice any spelling errors, or grammatical issues, so that is also tied. Pro made no arguments at all, so this goes to Con by default. No sources were used so that is also tied. If Con wants a real debate on this subject, he may feel free to challenge me.
