Note: Sidewalker has taken this debate. It will remain up until we start it in around a week :) Note: This debate should be impossible to accept. If you find a clever way to work around the rules, you automatically forfeit all seven points. If you would like to debate, please say so in the comments after reading this opening round.I do not plan to start this for a week or so. I started early as I don't think many may be willing to take this.

They are smelly and do not like me just as much as they like god....
