Crap, I meant to vote pro, but accidentally clicked con. Could someone vote pro to fix it?

Good topic. But Pros first argument doesn't make sense. If a phone has four sides then it has four sides...just because a blind person doesn't realize that doesn't make it less true. With that logic we could say that when people thought the earth was flat then it was not round during that time.

A fact is a fact weather one recognizes it or not. If the world is somehow square shape and we just don't know it yet that doesn't make it not square shape.

Con is making other mistakes, as well. Consider the statement "I interact with my biological parents regularly." This statement can very easily be True for many persons, but False for anyone whose parents died in an accident shortly after birth. So, because it is well known that such situations exist, and the description "fits" with the Resolution of this Debate, it is clear that the Resolution is absolutely True (because it wasn't phrased precisely enough).

Then there is the fact that Con seems to be interpreting "different" as including only the options of True and False, while in actual fact "different" can include many shades of grey. In Relativistic Physics, it is NORMAL for "different" to be more-associated with "variations" than with "true/false".

So now consider cannibalism. In some cultures cannibalism was considered to be the most proper way to honor a fallen enemy. In others the practice was reviled. Is there an actual "right" or "wrong" here? Do you know what Science has to say on the subject? Basically, this: We can eat beef "rare" because cattle and humans share very few diseases. We eat pork well-cooked because humans and pigs share a number of diseases, and thorough cooking is the only way to ensure that disease-organisms get killed. And it is possible to catch just about any disease from another human, so that could be a real good reason to avoid eating human flesh.

OR to cook human flesh most extremely thoroughly, first! Take your pick....

This is my first debate on Debate.org, and I think that I mistakenly entered information that I intended to be a description of and introduction to the debate as my first argument. The Contender may very well enter his arguments in round one, or simply state what he is going to be arguing and so forth as I have, either of which I am okay with. My bad, newbie mistake.
