Hello, this is my first debate, and I'm looking forward to it! I will argue that brains are better than beauty and the contender will argue that beauty is better. Good luck!
First round acceptance.
Apollo.11

Con

I don't know why I accepted this debate...but I guess I'll have a go.

Debate Parameters:
1. No new arguments in the third round.
2. No SEMANTICS!
3. 8000 character limit. I have defined the terms.

Definitions:
Let's define the terms.
By "brains," I assume you are referring to above average intellect.
By "beauty," I mean above average appearance attributes as well as "beauty" itself.

1. Intelligence: "the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills" [1]

2. Beauty: "a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight" [2]

3. Appearance: "the way that someone or something looks" [3]

I throw togther an argument just so that I fulfill my BOP.

1. Reproduction
More aethetically pleasing animals get laid, thus reproducing, and benefitting the species.

2. Advanced Brains are used for advanced operations.
Advanced operations don't benefit a species as the two most important are survival and reproduction.
Bacteria, some of the simplest organisms on earth, have survived longer than almost all others.


Ya...That's good enough.

Obviously you should vote for Con.

Ok. It's all good. I just came up with a good argument.
For the record, I agree with Pro.
