I think that all of us should go back in time because back then we had less crimes, plus there was more outdoor projects, obesity wasn't as intense, evry thing had cost a lot less. another reason is that every day we get closer to another apocolyps witch means the end.

please debate...... good luck

I thank my opponent for starting this debate.

First off my opponent argues that the reason we should go back in time is mainly because of lifestyle and *apocalypse*.
a)The time period is not specified B.C?? A.D?? Has the toilet been invented? 19th Century with the existence of Slavery, Warfare, and Basic Industrialization? 20th Century- World War, automobiles resulting in pollution? Many advantages that we have in our modern world are negated when presented by going into the past. That technological advancements made to improve peoples lives would cease to exist.
b) Avoiding apocalypse. I come up with three main questions for my opponent and that is
-When will apocalypse occur? many predictions have been made some have already past.
-If the apocalypse is destined to happen how are we to avoid it? are we really avoiding it by going back in time?
-Does this "apocalypse" even exist, if so what causes it?
By stepping into the past we may actually be heading towards our apocalypse rather than avoiding it.

Now onto my case that if we were do step back in time we would have many major following problems occur:
1)Overpopulation- By having the world go into the past we will double the already overpopulated world leading to starvation, and perpetual resource wars.
2)Paradox's- Events that contradict reality. By going into the past we may actually kill ourselves by preventing the generations that conceived us not to meet.

Although history has shown that things are cheaper, and there may have been less obesity we should not go back in time to live as for we may change the course of history. By going back in time who knows what will happen, in fact what will happen will always be bad. Before even going back in time are we capable? We may like to go back in time but if it's something impossible then it's not why but rather wish.
