advanced hominid decendants should be valued above homo sapiens in expanding into the universe

eventually man will have to expand off of earth, or we will go extinct.

wouldnt it be wise to allow first the most advanced of us to leave and expand civilization? this very well could (and perhaps should) eventually lead to hominid speciation.

we could have a loyalist approach to it, and argue that our species should be of higher priority than allowing or promoting our decendants to be of superior quality, albeit a different species. but why should we take this approach? are they not both our decendants either way?

sure, maybe we can try to both save homo sapiens, and allow or try for advancing homind species. but if we have to choose a focus, isn't it better to focus on a superior decendant?

I oppose this argument simply because you have not shown a single hominid that can oppose homo sapiens, it would be a logical argument if we were opposed in any way in which would show their superiority. At this point valuing a hominid above our species that currently can hunt, kill, and irradiate any other species is illogical.

Pro

it is possible in theory for an advanced hominid to arise. therefore, it is illogical to ignore that possibility.

in the astronomical aspect of time, we will be expanding into the universe, or die. i would hope we expand. mars, to the moons of jupiter where there's more energy than here, and so on. it might be a remote possibility that we evolve more, given we conform the environmetn to us, but it's a possibility as we expand deep into space and become mroe isolated.
if we were to try to speed evolution, it would be less inetivable. space ships like star trek never to return leave. pushing our current technology, but if those ships could then create ships, it would speed up even more.
eg, a hundred of our best go out. they breed a thousand to prevent inbreeding. then a hundred of their best. then they breed to a thousdand, on and on. evolution would be inevitable.

the choice will be a choice we have to make at some point in the far future. i'm merely asking us to ask the question now. con can't even get off home base to first base, as he is caught up in not even wanting to consider it.

I'm sorry but this isn't a debate if we are arguing the theoretical side of this. your resolution says "advanced hominid descendants should be valued above homo sapiens in expanding into the universe" this refers to present not future. and as of present there is no hominid more advanced than us. if we are going to get theoretical we should place time lords as being valued above homo sapiens because there's a possibility that somewhere in our infinite universe that some species has developed time travel.

pro is living in a world of theory and isn't based in logic at all, he has yet to address why humans couldn't poplulate mars, as they plan too

mars is actually likely to be populated within our lifetime, or atl east soon relatively. space x has shown a lot of potential to do so. i could get into the details, but it is beside the point.

space expansion is possible. it is rooted in reality. it is doable. time travel is merely theroetical, and as far as we could be concerned, not based in reality. (there are even logical paradoxes that would be involved with it) con has to resort to non reality to support his arguments, which only goes to show that his points are themselves not based on reality, and are illogical. irrational says it best.

Con

Pro has succumb to my arguments, he first argued we as humans cannot expand and thus we must place a nonexistent being over our selves. secondly he has yet to show why a hominid species above us isn't theoretical. And lastly he has yet to actually show why they should be valued above us. my opponent simply doesn't make sense throughout this debate, they have been illogical and grasped at the theory that one day we will be inferior species. I'm not sure what else to say, its hard to understand their arguments, they want to be able to debate a theory but also not at the same time? and I'm not even sure what space X is, is it another space? one outside of our own?

advanced hominid descendants - can you give any examples of such creatures?
