Do you believe science will cure spinal cord injuries
Debate Rounds (3)
So it would only be unfair for me to use Pro's mistakes against him and instead will choose to form an argument of some kind that perhaps he was expecting ... This is still unknown however..
Ok so firstly, you say that research is being carried out by (and thanks for including your references Pro) 'Neuralstem.inc' and 'Stemcell.inc'. Thanks to the power of the internet, I can base my research on them. I will firstly dismiss to the fact that the point he should make was why he believes a cure will be in place by 2020. Instead has made reference what the cure will involve i.e. (Treatments, physiotherapy and nutrition). And for that reason, he doesn't have a point for his own argument that answers the title of the debate. Therefore, I don't have anything to rebut against as how can I? How can I because I cannot prove the information from Stemcell.Inc and Neuralstem.Inc to be false as it can be found on their websites although Pro has made some of this misleading... I'm disappointed this round was wasted because he mis-addressed the title. However the final round can be nothing but a conclusion argument and unless he can re-address the debate how he wished it to be in the first place, this won't go anywhere. If you are new to debating, I understand as I myself have made misleading debate before without realising until my opponent made clear I was headed in the wrong direction.
To conclude, Pro has not made a point which addresses the direction in this debate (Do you believe Science will cure spinal injuries by 2020). He has instead informed me about current activities that hasn't linked into a point. He could have used such though to back up a claim for 'clinical trials already happening' for example or something which would have answered the motion.
