awesumdebator

Con

this is for my thesis for my postgrad
Thaddeus

Pro

I hope this shall be a stimulating and interesting debate.

Defintions;
Gondowona; For those who misunderstood in the comments, I am Gondowona. (It was my nickname in primary school because everyone hated me.)
Exist; To have actual being; be real.

The burden of proof was not stated so we shall assume that instigator takes it. Con must prove I did not exist, ie, that I never existed. To make things easier for my opponent, I shall clarify the resolution (if Con will let me) as "On balance, is it likely that Gondowona existed?"

I look forward to your next round.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

Godawana did not exisit because God created the world and although some parts of the wrold are si mioar thats all due to techtonic plates
Thaddeus

Pro

As my opponent has not referenced the BOP, I shall assume they have acccepted it.
My opponent argues that I do not exist, because God created the world. This may seem like a brilliant argument on the surface, but when you look closer you may actually find it is a non-sequiter.
As a counter argument, I would argue that it is reasonable to believe, that I, Gondowona, also known as Thaddeus, exist because I have partaken in this debate, have commented many times on the forums, and even slain a dragon with my bear hands (no typo - I killed the bear first)
I eagerly await my opponents next round.
Debate Round No. 2

Con

awesumdebator forfeited this round.
Thaddeus

Pro

My opponent has forfeited. This saddens me greatly. I wish people wouldn't do this. I am very emotionally fragile. This sort of rejection stays with me for years.
Sometimes I still cry myself to sleep.

WTH is Gondowona? Is that some alternative spelling for Gondwana?

Reasons for voting decision: Con/Instigator failed all around and did not even spell the topic correctly (I presume he meant Gondwana, a supercontinent in the geological past). None of his arguments seemed sensible, they definitely lacked support, grammar and spelling ... I might mark Pro down under conduct for the snarky 'I Am Gondowona,' but given Con failed to ever properly define the topic, I'll grant even that by efault to Pro.
