Pro

Yup. Pretty self explanatory.
ConservativePolitico

Con

I'm going to start this off since my opponent said nothing about who gets to start so I'll let that be me.

Let's break down his resolution:

Anyone - Any person or people

use - to utilize something and its function (i.e debate.org to debate)

this site - debate.org

has - to be in possession of something

no - a negative

life - the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body [1]

Now the resolution reads as this:

Any person who utilizes the function of debate.org is not in the possession of life

My argument:

Anyone who is using this site must be alive and therefore has life. If someone was not in the possession of life they would then be dead and dead people cannot use Debate.org to debate.

Therefore the resolution is clearly false.

Vote Con.

My case rests.

Review the above arguments and Vote Con.

The resolution is obviously false.
Debate Round No. 2
LiberalJoe

Pro

Terribly sorry. Let me continue.

"If someone was not in the possession of a life they would be dead..."

Wrong. You, sir, are jumping to conclusions. Just because someone doesn't have a life, it doesn't mean they are dead! Good lord, what are they teaching you kids these days? My dear uncle, to his misfortune, misplaced his life just the other day, the loony old man. Told me, "I dropped it out the winder when I's was drivin." Fortunately, he was rushed to the hospital and they were able to find him a new life before his poor old heart gave out.

"Dead people cannot use Debate.org to debate."

Once again mister, jumping to conclusions! Am I sensing a pattern here?
Of course you can use it while you're dead! S' matter of fact, my ol' Grandpap Jimmy's dead right now, he's typing away on this site!

"Anyone who uses this site has no life." (my statement)

Whilst all of you are reading this, I am actually sneaking into your houses, reaching into your pockets, and grabbing your lives. By the time you turn around, I will be gone, and I will have made off with all of your lives. Now you are using this site, and none of you have lives anymore, so my statement proves to be true. Case Closed.
ConservativePolitico

Con

My opponent has made no real effort to refute my case because it is irrefutable and has turned to trolling out of frusteration. As you can see he wrote unintelligable gibberish.

Clearly he had no intention of being serious and he forfeited the second round.

Obviously those of you reading this are alive and therefore have life thus making my point.

Vote Con!

Reasons for voting decision: Basically, Pro is saying that he himself has no life because he uses this site? Con proved that someone without life would be dead and unable to use this site. Con had sources. Pro forfeited. This is a stupid debate. Pro loses grammar due to use of slang.

Reasons for voting decision: arguments were superior and the topic itself was offensive so conduct goes to con as well (also because the pro ff a round) also the con did use a source while the pro didnt.

Reasons for voting decision: I don't consider new arguments in the final round, so essentially Pro presented no case. If you're going to go the humor route, go big and go early. Arguments and conduct to Con.
