1+1 is 2, people say. But it is not, no. I fell it is not, but you tell why.

Con

Pro

LexTempus forfeited this round.
AdithyaShark

Con

By most ordinary arithmetic concepts, the constant 1, when multiplied by 2 (i.e. added to itself) will gain the answer 2. [1]

1 point to Pro (S&G). RFD = Reasons for voting decision: Four Fit Tier (Word Play). Plus what absurd argument this is.

[*Reason for removal*] I have no idea what this RFD means. Pro forfeited every round. The S&G point is not explained and appears suspect.

Reasons for voting decision: 1) Mathematically speaking, 1 + 1 = 2. 2) Pro loses the conduct point for forfeiting the debate. 3) Con had more content, and Con's content was grammatically sound. 4) Since Pro posted no arguments, Con had more convincing arguments. 5) Since Pro used no sources, Con has more reliable sources. Con wins

Reasons for voting decision: Pro gives no evidence to back up his / her argument, then forfeited subsequent rounds. Con appears to successfully refute Pro's initial assertion, and then Pro failed to respond or refute.
