this method to stimulate human evolution would work to cause speciation

a new society is created. it consists of new born to 30 year olds. only the best and the brightest 500 people from society are picked. intelligence and physical attributes. they do genetic testing on the people to ensure diseases and problems indicated by genes and family history are rooted out.

eighteen to thirty year olds are permitted to breed.

then the population of five hundred would be permitted to expand to five thousand. then by the time it got to five thousand, for each member that reaches 18, two are removed until the population goes back down to five hundred. this method of expansion and retraction would be put on repeat.

when a parent shows that it later develops a disease, that can disqualify the offspring as well.

eventually, this would lead to speciation.

unfortunately, it is only war that humans evolve from. history tells the tale.

You want to impose draconian principles on the majority, that is clear from your ideology, if it is honest. You do not consider your blueprint to be both discriminatory and dictator like?

Ideas like yours.
Are what start the wars.
Period.

it's not being imposed on anyone. it's being offered to a select few to advance our species.

I choose to not judge the masses based on your criteria, as that would make me akin to judge, jury and executioner. You have a Golden Dawn philosophy, twisted in your own ideals. Do not hurt people because of their statistical significance, unless you are a Nazi. Everyone should look everyone in the EYE before passing judgement.

There may be more on her side on this site, but in the real world there will be more on mine.

Population would decline very rapidly. So would the "best and brightest" breed more than usual to try and compensate? Meanwhile, the people who weren't permitted to breed could raise the countless babies being spewed out by the genetically fittest.

Reasons for voting decision: Con appears to have failed to read the debate, or what the resolution was--Pro never even advocated this notion as a *good* idea per se, and the resolution was that it would "work to cause speciation". Pro argued that a drastic system of expansion and contraction would cause sufficient changes to result in speciation. Frankly this needed to be expanded upon. However, given that Con completely derailed this debate (which is why Con loses conduct, here), Pro never got the chance to do that expansion. What Pro presented was at least something relevant to the motion.
