I will accept this argument. I, as Pro, will be arguing that people with disabilities are smarter than the average person.

I am assuming IQ is the measure of intelligence here. If it is not, please clarify in your next post.

Your argument seems a bit confusing to me. Are you saying that the people who say that people with disabilities are smarter do not have evidence? Or are you saying that people who say they aren't do have evidence? If it is the latter, you have not cited any sources, and if the former, I will remove the doubt right now.

Asperegers's syndrome is a type of disability where a person has bad social skills but is unusually adept at something else, such as the periodic table. They usually have a far higher IQ than the commoner (who has an IQ of 100.)

I would certainly define what you mean by "people with disabilities." Do you mean people with aspergers? If so, then that's debatable, probably in favor of pro. However, many disorders involve being less capable of functioning, such as cerebral palsy.

You would want to establish a baseline for what constitutes as the "smartness capability of the AVERAGE human being".

As well as define what a "person with disabilities" is.

Then you can have test/debate about which would be smarter.
