First round will be acceptance and definitions only. Next three rounds will be in the following order: Construction 1, construction 2, refutation.
Space exploration-the ongoing discovery and exploration of celestial structures in outer space by means of continuously evolving and growing space technology.
Extraterrestrial Microbial Life-Any life not originating from earth that is in a microbial form.

I accept the debate. I don't have any definitions but I'm assuming when you say "should not be allowed" you mean like some kind of law banning it. Otherwise it's just a subjective matter with no way to know absolutely whose opinion is correct. No forfeiting or you lose. Let's do it...

Well, I'm still waiting to hear any kind of argumentation as to why this is believed to exist or why it matters. We don't care about any bacteria here on earth so why would we out there (even if it did exist)? What exactly justifies halting all of our progress? What are we even doing that "harms" it anyways?

Well this is all me still... I don't see any reason to halt our exploration. I'm not sure how much more we can even explore at this point but if we have an opportunity to gain more knowledge with empirical data we should use it. Sorry if anyone was actually looking forward to reading more out of this... I can't refute anything since nothing at all has been asserted or answered.
