 Pro '2' is a number. '2' is also a numeral and a glyph. But importantly, for the purposes of this debate, '2' is a number.Definitions: 1. A mathematical object used to count, label and measure.2. An arithmetical value, expressed by a word, symbol, or figure, representing a particular quantity and used in counting and making calculations. (from: http://www.oxforddictionaries.com...2 is 'definitely' a number according to these definitions of the word 'number'.Report this Argument Con All our knowledge is but the knowledge of schoolchildren. Possibly we shall know a little more than we do now. But the real nature of things, we shall never know, never. Numbers are an arithmetical value, expressed by a word, symbol, or figure, representing a particular quantity and used in counting and making calculations and for showing order in a series or for identification. For the real nature of things, numbers may either not exist, or vary. It is our conciousness that guides us to these conclusions. They may be true, they may be false. However, like you said, 2 is "definitely" a number.Report this Argument Pro What on Earth did you just type? This is less coherent than Miss America contestant's answer to a simple question.;Report this Argument Con You say that, yet you make no attempt to rebutt the specific argument presented in the previous round.

calm down, I was just joking. I even said I kind of see where you were coming from. I don't think you're dumb and why should it even matter what I think? I don't know you.

@KingDebater

PRO NEVER ARGUED! ALL HE DID WAS SAY THAT WHAT I TYPED IN IS LESS COHERENT THAN MISS AMERICA'S CONTESTANT ANSWER TO A SIMPLE QUESTION TO EMPHASIZE HOW DUMB HE THINKS I AM.

@SeventhProfessor

This is a red herring - - not at all relevant to the specific argument presented. I typed that in because I was pointing out what flaw I was responding to.

I can kind of see where derpaderp is coming from though. Perhaps the topic of the debate should have been "2 is a number by definition". Regardless... this was a very stupid debate. I was actually trying to figure out a topic no one would argue against. I guess I failed.

If this debate in particular is pointless, why do you instigate such debates?

"However, like you said, 2 is "definitely" a number."

You were taking the stance that 2 isn't a number, and you admitted it was in this quote,

I can't even believe people are actually voting on these pointless debates and almost no one voted on any of my other debates.

@SeventProfessor No, I did not! You either misinterpreted the particular argument, or you overlooked it. I said specifically that it may vary.
