I disagree with the contentions as follows: On contention, there are rabbits on the moon.

Rabbits live there

How can you prove that? The environment is not sustaining for bunnies; there is no oxygen, there is no water, there is no food sources. So how could you say that they exist on the moon given that the very basics they need to survive are not present there?

They could be living in a cage that is sent from NASA with a Shute ( Vacuum) that sends up oxygen and food and water.

That is highly improbable seeing that it would take time and much money to keep sending resources to the moon for rabbits. That would attract many citizens' attentions since NASA is paid for by our money. Which means the extra money, no matter how big or small, would at least be noticed by one person. Your arguments mostly consist of the one sentence, "There are rabbits on the moon," but you still have yet to prove one slight bit of evidence in support of your stance. Thus the pro's debate has mostly been on his own personal beliefs and conclusions he has drawn for himself, and not conclusive evidence. As this document by Prof. Livia Katz says, "...Evidence is central to any written argument because it provides the facts around which you create your argument, your opinion. Without evidence, an argument is a windy, flimsy statement of one person"s opinion. With evidence, an argument is grounded in facts and given shape. Evidence is the critical link that helps you prove your points." http://www.jjay.cuny.edu...
With this in mind I would urge a con ballot.

Reasons for voting decision: I guess this was a troll debate--there wasn't a particular amount of "funny" in it, but it's the only conclusion I feel I can reach given the arguments, or lack thereof, Pro presented. At most she presented completely unfounded speculation. Con rightly noted that. Conduct for the forfeit, of course, and arguments for the lack of them from Pro, who clearly did not fulfill her BoP. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
