I state that all living human beings breathe.
ethopia619

Con

I give thanks to Pro for making this debate, even though it could be an easy win. However, let's begin!

Breathe: inhale
<1>

1. Breathing humans

Humans who dive down into the waters (divers) will hold their breath for a short time period. They do not breath for a time period. This shows that humans do not breathe. <3>

2. Toxic fumes

Self-explanatory. Humans do not breathe toxic fumes. If they do, they could die. Humans do not breathe these fumes. <2>

Thank you. I await my opponent's response.

Debate Round No. 1

Pro

TheDragonReborn forfeited this round.
ethopia619

Con

Due to my opponent's forfeit, I will extend my arguments and build new ones.

1. Breathing

When you have a heart attack, you could, maybe, not breathe. My aunt could not breathe when she had a heart attack. This shows that right before you die, you would not breathe. Simple?

Pro has not made any arguments.

Well, I'd like to thank TheDragonReborn and the readers! Thank you.

I think he means that we humans have to breathe to live :O
We dont breathe = we die = we dont live.
