Pro

When a person is diseased and has given up on life so he/she has no chance of living because once a person starts thinking of going for a long journey he/she has only one chance in a ten for living.

I accept this debate. Thank you for instigating such a thoughtful and interesting topic.


Rebuttals:

- My opponent argues that the depression and mental condition derived from a critical disease is more dangerous than the disease itself.

-However, Pro fails to realize that without the disease itself, the depression mental condition would hypothetically not appear.

-A person who is depressed but has no physical disease is easier and safer to cure than a person with a serious cancer who will most certainly die, as there is no cure for cancer at the moment.

-A person with a depressed mentality has a less probable chance of dying than a person with a fatal disease who has close to 100% chance of dying (since it is "fatal), therefore, the disease is certainly more dangerous than the diseased mind.

The disease doesn't have to be a literal disease. The disease mind can only be a corrupt person. The disease is corruption in, for instance, politics, and the diseased mind is the corrupted person in it.

Rebuttal:

"The disease doesn't have to be a literal disease. The disease mind can also be a corrupt person. The disease is corruption in, for instance, politics, and the diseased mind is the corrupted person in it."

-Well done, but...

-If pro claims that a corrupt person has a diseased mind, then it is only logical that corruption in general be a disease. One corrupt person is certainly less dangerous than corruption in its entirety.

-Furthermore, as established in my round 1 arguments, the diseased mind comes from the disease itself. The corrupted person is corrupted because of corruption. Corruption causes people with corrupt minds.

-Regardless of this statement, my rebuttals in round 1 already proved against your claim that a diseased mind is more dangerous than the disease itself, therefore, even if you have provided one example in which the diseased mind is more dangerous than the disease, your resolution is still negated.

*Pro has not met his burden of proof.

My point in Round 4 has an error. It is supposed to be " .... a diseased mind CAN also be .... ".
Sorry for the inconvenience.
