Pro

I would like to argue that contradictions do not exist. I am seeking an opponent who is willing to argue Con on this topic and who is willing to take this debate to its furthest possible conclusion. I look forward to the discussion.

Definitions:
Contradiction:
1. opposition between two conflicting forces or ideas [1]
2. a statement that is necessarily false [1]
Paradox: a statement that contradicts itself [2]
Exist: have an existence, be extant [3]

If I came off as arrogant, I apologize. Often times philosophy and subject so philosophy are shunned because of how heady and complex the ideas are. It's a big turn off for a lot of people and many don't even want to waste their time with it. But I asked this question because I legitimately want to learn something, not because I want to test my pretentious notions.

I hope that life treats you better than you have treated me.

I would love to debate you on this topic.. so get rid of the other guy and make a new one and let's do this. I don't know what you're looking for, exactly, but as a person who wants to learn how to debate better and look like an idiot while doing it, I want to prove to you that contradictions do, indeed, exist. SO GIVE ME THAT OPPORTUNITY, DAMNIT!

I think it'd be more interesting to argue Pro than Con on this. :/

There might be some room for misunderstanding here. For a second there, i was tempted to take the debate and offer an example of a contradiction. You say "Contradictions do not exist," and I say, "Contradictions exist." The fact that your claim would contradict mine proves that contradictions exist.

But I stopped myself because I thought maybe you mean something different. Maybe what you intend to defend is the law of non-contradiction, and what you REALLY mean is that reality doesn't contradict itself or that no two TRUE propositions contradict each other.

Maybe you should clarify.

Good luck on your first debate. Hopefully it will be more than arguments by assertion.
