Endurify
mrPrime

Evil - "profoundly immoral and malevolent." Immoral - Not conforming to accepted standards of morality. Round 1: Introduction Round 2: Arguments/Rebuttal Round 3: Rebuttal/Conclusion 72 hours per round. 10k Characters.

Round earth theory doesn't necessarily mean a perfect sphere. Just like flat Earth theory wo...
