Con

Rules:

Round One: I will post the rules and my opponent will post their argument.
Round Two: I will post my argument and my opponent will post their rebuttals.
Round Three: I will post my rebuttals and my opponent will state "no round as agreed upon."

Failure to follow rules will result in a 7 point deduction.
Mothman

Pro

1. There are so many planets out there, there just has to be life on other worlds.

2. It is impossible to disprove the existence of ETs because you would have to search every inch of the universe, and other universes

3. They could be microscopic.

4. UFOs exist, The Tinley Park case is the best evidence

These UFOs were proven not to be flares, they have to be, a. Top Secret Government Craft, or aliens

5. The meteor found in Antarctica proves there was life on mars

6. Europa may have life on it.

Conclusion since it is impossible to disprove the existence of life on other planets, it is not possible to say there is no life on other planets.

Probability suggests there is life on other planets.

I leave it to Con to search the entire universe and show me it is all dead.

Con can't disprove aliens but Pro can't prove their existence either, otherwise it wouldn't be being debated.

This is a bad argument to use.

In fact it's a bad debate as neither side has any real data. life has been found on 1 planet in the observable universe. the odds could be so infinitesimally small of life existing that the earth is the only case, without more data we shall never know.

Reasons for voting decision: "I leave it to Con to search the entire universe and show me it is all dead." One of the most easily refuted points I've seen, and yet it still intimidated goldtrotter away... No contest and forfeit.
