"Biometrics" - Using one's unique body signatures to identify individual people
"Preferred" - Would be better for society
"Traditional Passwords" - 1 2 3 4 5

Please refrain from juxtaposing biometrics or traditional passwords with ones of the historic past, or distant future. Limit your time span within reasonable lengths.

Oh yeah, thanks for your vote. No problem there.

I do wish there were more though...

--> @DynamicSquid @Zaradi

I'm of course happy to clarify any part of my vote. I am very tired right now, and it's wholly possible I overlooked some important detail. (with just under two days left to vote, getting it submitted fast enough to be responded to was important)

Good debate. I had fun. See you soon!

Added:
Contender
--> @Barney

Technically yes they aren't. But it's kinda hard to debate which one is better than the other if either of us can say "well if it doesn't work we can always have the second one as a backup". It makes every argument non-unique.

--> @DynamicSquid @Zaradi

Please remind me to vote (like a day or two out, not right now).

And I got to say it, but the things are not mutually exclusive.

Oh and for formatting, this should be helpful: https://tiny.cc/DebateArt

Actually, nevermind. I'm not worried.

That doesn't really answer my question. Look at how I organized my use of sources. I'd like for you to do the same, or at least something similar.

I linked 5 sources in my speech, but most of my info could be generally applied.

Bruh, what are any of these sources backing up? Which link is for which argument?

Here's the clip I was referring to in my speech (skip to 1:55):

I thought this was off-topic in a debate so that's why I'm posting it here.
