Basically, Chuck Norris is not as cool as some people make him. He is not any form of "God" or anything. He's just a over-exxagerated celebrity who is really getting annoying.

Greetings.

Perhaps you simply do not understand the nature of Chuck Norris. Perhaps you're relying on faulty information about Chuck, rather than the facts. In this debate, I will attempt to remedy this situation.

Unfortunately, I have next to nothing to which I must make a rebuttal. You've simply made the naked assertion that people think Chuck Norris is cooler than he really is - without providing anything to back it up. Maybe tell us what it is that prompted you to make this debate - what did someone say that was an exaggeration of Chuck Norris' abilities? Without that, we have no reason to simply assume that you're right. Especially those of us who know the true reaches of Chuck Norris' abilities.

It is quite impossible for me to believe such an extraordinary claim based on hearsay.

I wait now for my opponent to back up her claim. (Examples of people 'over-exaggerating' (which is redundant) about Chuck)
Just as you would have me provide evidence if I said something as unbelievable as "France and Britain just switched places geographically!" (which is more believable than someone supposedly exaggerating about Chuck Norris)

I believe you've conclusively defeated yourself. Your sources, which I agree are valid sources, list these so-called exaggerations as Chuck Norris facts. I'm right about now going to give you my own definition of fact, which I think wecan all agree on.

Fact: something that is true.

That said, stating the truth, as all Chuck Norris facts do by their nature, cannot be exaggeration. This is because exaggeration is by definition untrue.

Thus, Chuck Norris facts do not exaggerate Chuck's actual abilities. He really IS that cool. And that's a fact.

My argument isn't that my facts are true or untrue, its that Chuck Norris is over-exagerated. A lot of the things posted on those sites are physically impossible.
Main Entry: overexaggerate
Part of Speech: v
Definition: to overemphasize completely; to go beyond anticipated exaggeration
http://dictionary.reference.com...

These so called "facts" are completly exaggerated.

You claim that the things Chuck Norris does or can do (according to facts you have provided us with) are not physically possible.
However, these are facts. For example:
When Chuck Norris goes in the water, he doesn't get wet. The water gets Chuck Norris.

This may seem physically impossible if we apply the same rules that apply to other people to Chuck. However, Chuck Norris is not required to follow all the rules of physics (and that's a fact). There are many unexplained phenomena in our universe, and none of them are physically impossible. They simply are not explained by existing scientific theories.

With a brief look at the facts, it's plain to see just how awesome Chuck Norris really is. It is nigh impossible to exaggerate his abilities, and my opponent has failed to show that this is in fact happening.

Do you have the say over what viewers vote on audraxheartsxyou? It very well might be your argument, but it is the viewer that decided on whether or not you "win."
Now I think if you have proved a valid point, support it with evidence and keep true to the end then you have won, in my opinion. I don't mind who votes on what. It's the debate itself that is important.

OMG WATCH CHUCK NORRIS ROUNDHOUSE KICK YOU IN THE FACE!!!!!!!!!!

p.s. I have one of those chuck norris T's you mentioned:
When Chuck Norris does push ups, he isn't pushing himself up, he's pushing the earth down.

P.P.S. Beem0r pretty much won this debate, pro never said her facts weren't true.

The thing is, Chuck Norris' job as a celebrity is to be overtly exaggerated, but in a toungue-in-cheek sarcastic way that nobody believes. So in this sense, nobody thinks Chuck Norris is cool, but it is our duty as participants of our culture to "pretend" he is.
