The problem of Slytherin


Resolved: The portrayal of Slytherin House in the Harry Potter books, on balance, detracts from the series as a whole. For the purposes of the debate, only information contained in the original series (not Pottermore or the movies) is canon. I am affirming. The first round is for acceptance, second for constructives, and third and fourth for rebuttals. No new arguments in the last round. I look forward to the debate!...

Speed Debate: 1000 foot Lion Whale Gods are real, and they live on Saturn


Con must prove that 1000 foot Lion Whale gods exist and occupy Saturn in one round. The BOP will be taken 100% seriously, and failure to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that 1000 foot Lion Whale gods are real and live on Saturn will result in a full 7 point forfeit. I am not required to make any arguments or refute yours. This is not a "BOP went unrefuted so is affirmed" debate. The audience will judge based on Pro's abillity to prove this scientific theory beyond a doubt.
