Ethics of Mass Effect #1 - The Rachni

I decided to start this, much in the same line of bsh1's Star Trek debates, to start a series of debates about Mass Effect. I love Mass Effect not only because of the rich storyline but also because of the tough ethical questions and dilemmas that the game forces you to face down and confront. This debate series is intended to replicate those questions and debate about the proper course of action between the two options that the game presents to you. Background Information:In Mass Effect 1,...

With the rapidly growing pace of technology in Bio-engineering and Robotics, scientists are finding new ways to overcome disabilities that in years prior would have been permanent. The debate I want to hold is the implications and ethics of human modification, not the current results. So I listed it under philosophy.

So I encourage a Debater who is very skilled, at the same time if my performance fa...

I'm going to be arguing that dogs are better companions than cats. My reasons for believing this are as following: 1. Dogs can be heroes. Not only do dogs have the ability to sense when their owner is in danger and help them, seizure-alert dogs can detect and warn their owner when they are about to have a seizure. They are also often used to find missing people, detect bombs and drugs, and track down criminals. 2. Dogs make you laugh. In a pilot study done by the Animals and Societ...
