There are no such things as biological viruses. Viruses are illogical and there is no evidence to support their existence.

Con

I accept.

Firstly it needs to be established that disease has only 2 primary causes.
1. Vitamin deficiency
2. Chemical poisoning.
Note - Genetic mutation is mostly caused by vitamin deficiency, Thus, It is not a 3rd cause.
Latin root meaning of the word virus - a poison or toxin.
Any other explanation other than these 2 reasons should be considered either as frauds or secondary symptoms of disease only.
Thus, These 2 explanations are sufficient to cover all of the so called many different diseases of mankind and plants.


To prove that viruses don't exist. Answer these logic questions -

1. How did the first person to see a virus know that it was a virus without any references as to what a virus looks like?
2. How do viruses find their host if they have no legs, Arms, Eyes, Ears, Brains, Sense of touch or means of locomotion?
3. How can something that is dead, Suddenly come to life?
4. How can viruses survive in the atmosphere and sunlight without any walls for protection? (very fragile)
5. How does a entity (virus) that kills its host pass on its genes and what does it gain by killing the host?
6. If viruses are proteins, Then why don't small insects like ants find them and eat them all?

Con

Rebuttal:
To answer your questions
1)The First person to see a virus did not know what it was but after researching they came to the conclusion that it is a virus with its own identity.
2. Viruses have flagellum to move, Bacteriophage has legs, They have mini arms, They have protein and nucleic acids,
3)Viruses evolutionized
4)Viruses, Archaebacteria and MANY small organisms can survive in unfavorable conditions. Some ways are endospores, Adaption and quick evolution
5)The virus finds a host cell, Enters in their genes, Take over the cell, The cell bursts and viruses reproduce AKA The Lytic Cycle
6)Viruses Are INCREDIBLY Small. Way smaller beyond comprehension even compared to bacteria. Ants can't eat ALL the viruses in the world

Questions For You:
1)If viruses don't exist, What is the cause of flu, AIDS, And HIV?
2)How come we harness viruses and use them to cure bacteria superbugs.
3) Bacteriophage kills 40% of the oceans bacteria, Why do we not see HUGE bacteria population explosions if they don't exist?
4)How come there is photographic evidence it exists.

Your responses are so puerile and immature that I would lose 50 IQ points just by acknowledging them. Thus, I am unable to continue.

Con

If my arguments were bad, Isn't this a easy win. YOUR FIRST WIN. Or is it because you are a silly old man with an IQ of a 8 year old.

You can't answer the questions because you are too cowardly and you can't use a simple computer program without losing your data. Conclusion - Hopeless fool.

Your profile even says you're proficient in biology, So why are you even posting this?
If you're just trolling (first debate on a 3-year account), Good luck with that, No-one's going to stop you wasting your time.
If you genuinely stand by your viewpoint, I put the life expectancy of any of your offspring at about 2-3 years, You menace to society. Honestly why people are so misinformed in an age of instant communication and scientific innovation is beyond me.

'Any other explanation other than these 2 reasons should be considered either as frauds or secondary symptoms of disease only. ' Individuals that are unable to accept other opinions and dismiss them as frauds should not be on this site. You debate by accepting the viewpoints of others and debating on them, Not instantly dismissing them in a petty way.
The world would be better off without you people.

You gotta love it when misinformed naysayers infiltrate this broken site.
Akhenaten, I think you'll find that you'll be treated the same as the antivaxxers and their ilk. I think you'll find that this site's quite packed with informed individuals who concentrated during 8th grade science and therefore have the mental ability of anyone above 8 years old.
Can we call you people antivaxxers? You've taken a step further and literally denied the existence of viruses altogether and then go on to denounce your opposition as immature. Take a second or two to see who you're dealing with- 7th grade science is beating whatever crap you're coming up with.

The fact that you've posted this debate six times with the exact same title without winning once suggests that you're wrong and have bad conduct.
