As I look back upon my many, many past debates, none have been so memorable as the time you and I battled it out to settle whether dogs should be classified as rodents. Well, that last debate was an unfortunate tie, which is why I've decided it's time for a rematch. As before, you are arguing that dogs should be classified as rodents. I am arguing that dogs cannot be classified as rodents. Five rounds, three month voting. I'm expecting some very hard argumentation on your part-give it all you've got. Prove to me that dogs should be reclassified as rodents. Let's settle this once and for all. It's time. Go ahead. I await your acceptance.

Dogs cannot be classified as rodents because they are not rodents, and already belong to their own family of mammals, Canidae. Biological classification is a serious matter and it cannot be broken just because dogs exhibit rodent-like behavior. What matters is the genetic structure of a dog's inner nucleus and the genetic code of a dog in relation to the genetic code of all other living beings. Biological classification is a rigid structure and it does not rely on petty hearsay. It is undeniable that dogs are not rodents. They are mammals, like rodents, but they are not rodents. Biological classification is a complex web of Genuses and Phylums, and to classify dogs as rodents simply because they exhibit rodent-like behavior would be to disrupt the fragile, intricate web of biology. They are not rodents. They are more closely related to wolves and hyenas than to mice and rats.

Give me an article which states that Stephen Hawking wants dogs to be reclassified as rodents. Also, scientists are not always correct. Stephen Hawking is usually correct, but I don't think he stated that dogs should be classified as something they are not. Your argument is so invalid. Apples are not oranges.

Actually, he probably is. He said that Hawking visited his school, which cartoon characters can't do. Or maybe he's trolling.

Sarcasm doesn't really help this.

I'm just trying to say that Stephen Hawking was a real person and it's an insult to his memory if you lie about him.

C'mon, tellytiger. It's just plain disrespectful to lie about what a dead man said.
