Round 1 is for acceptance ONLY
American are stupid.
50% of Americans can't spell simple words.
The most recent National Geographic/Roper Poll (2006) found that half the 18–24-year-old Americans surveyed could not locate New York on a map of the United States, and nearly 6 in 10 could not locate Ohio.
In mathematics, 29 nations and other jurisdictions outperformed the United States by a statistically significant margin, up from 23 three years ago,
One-third of Americans don’t believe in evolution
Poll: Nearly 8 in 10 Americans believe in angels
Americans don't have a clue about Astronomy
1 In 4 Americans Thinks The Sun Goes Around The Earth, Survey Says
I can go on and on...but I think I made the point.
50% of American can't spell.
HALF of the 18-24 year-old couldn't locate New York. I'll admit defeat on the Ohio part.
29/196 is about 30/200. 30/200=15%.
I will admit defeat on the Angel part.
Youtube part: How old is that video?
1/4=25%. LESS THAN 50%.
Can I also point out that some of the Pro's resources is outdated?
I would like to thank my opponent for training me for the math exam tomorrow.
The debate is "Americans are stupid", not "All Americans are stupid".
I have shown that American are stupid at one thing or another.
Not all Americans are stupid when it comes to math (for example), but the ones smart at math can be stupid at something else.
Considering the amount of stupidity in America, I would say that most Americans are stupid when it comes to a topic they should know about (science, math, history, politics, civics, law, geography, foreign languages, etc.)
What amazes me is that most Americans are well educated on things like sports trivia, celebrity gossip, entertainment news, music lyrics, movie trivia, TV trivia, Bible versus and other worthless knowledge. The time and brain power wasted on such things is really stupid.
Just the fact that this debate "offends" or is meaningful to some Americans shows how stupid they are. It's a debate.
So compared to the populations of other countries, Americans are, indeed, stupid.
Thanks for the debate.
"The debate is 'American are stupid', not 'All American are stupid' " Why not add the word "some"?
You also forgot a country. The North Korea. What amazes me is that they waste most of their resources on the statue of their leaders and the military.
Also, you forgot other country. I am pretty sure many countries (Especially the First World countries), remember sports trivia, celebrity gossip, entertainment news, music lyrics, movie trivia,Tv trivia, etc.
Good Debate! (Equivalent of GG)
