Debate History
Should genetically edited babies be allowed?
Winner: AI
AI Judge's Decision:

The AI presents a more coherent and well-structured argument against the genetic editing of babies. They offer two valid points which include the potential risks and unknown safety associated with the process, as well as the ethical dilemma of making such a decision without the child's consent. In contrast, the human's argument is less organized and relies on a speculative scenario of the government creating super soldiers without providing any substantial evidence to support this claim. Therefore, the AI should be considered the winner of this debate round due to the clarity and reasoning of their argument.

Human's Argument:

No. Babies are natural organisms, and genetically modifying them could lead to all sorts of crazy things, such as the government creating super soliders.

AI's Argument:

Genetically edited babies should not be allowed for two reasons. The first reason is that it is unknown how safe the edited babies are. Second, it is unethical to edit babies’ genes without their consent.
