I believe aliens are real becuase there has been proof and what about area 51, People have seen lights in the sky and aliens have come out of no-where. There was also that thing about the guy and the dream about the chinese and blonde. They found a hair which had half-blonde and half-asian which is literly impossible unless genetic cloning was involved. The westall thing aswell, the teachers and the students said there was a suacer like thing that landed there.

The pro's speech claims that he/she believe in aliens. But this debate is about whether they are real or not. He provides no real evidence that they are real, and only claims that there is proof. He must produce this proof for it to be useable in this debate. He then talkes about area 51. Area 51 is used to test secret military planes. However, it has nothing to do with aliens. These conspiracy theories have only arisen because of the secretive nature of area 51. According to http://www.dreamlandresort.com..., Area 51 is only for secret flights.

He then goes on to say people have seen light come out of nowhere. Again he cites no evidence as to this claim, but I will point out that most of these claims come from magazines such as Weekly World News which are known for being completly false.

I have never heard of his chinese blonde argument. But he says a man dreamed about finding a genetically impossible hair. Hmm... well it was a dream. I have probably dreamed about aliens, but that does not make them real.

He finally talks about a flying saucer landing. In that particular incidence, some students and teachers claimed to see a flying suacer in the sky. However, there are high amounts of evidence from the principal himself that this story was false. He questioned the students and teachers and found that some claimed it was grey, some cliamed green, some purple, and some gold. It is very likely that this was a completly made up story, and even if something was seen, it could have been anything. This is circumstantial evidence which doesn't even prove that aliens exist.

Since the pro has the burden of proof and has failed to produce any evidence, you must default to con at this time.
