Is it a possibility that so called mythical dragons trule exist?
studentathletechristian8

Con

The existence of "so called" mythical dragons is not possible.

Simply look at the definition of mythical: without foundation in fact; imaginary; fictitious. Dragons have never been proven to have existence, and are currently understood as imaginary characters in various fiction novels.

Currently, dragons have not been proven to exist, and I do not believe my opponent can prove that it is even possible for dragons to exist.

Thank you.

All i am asking is if it is possible. while it may still be considered a myth there have been many sighting in the european area back hundreds of years ago... it is possible that all recods of dragons have been lost because of the time difference between then and now. if there were dinosaurs then is it possible there were dragons at one point in time?

Con

My opponent's question presented in the first round uses "exist" in the present tense. Thus, we shall discuss if it is possible for dragons to exist now.

"while it may still be considered a myth there have been many sighting in the european area back hundreds of years ago"

Prove it.

"it is possible that all recods of dragons have been lost because of the time difference between then and now."

Not really. It is pretty hard for ALL records of dragon sightings to have been lost between "then and now." You're not really arguing; you're just stretching for possibilities that really aren't too possible.

"if there were dinosaurs then is it possible there were dragons at one point in time?"

Using your logic, one could say that an existence of dinosaurs makes it possible for the fictional King Kong to have been alive. You cannot prove that dragons have existed or do exist currently. You haven't even proven that it is possible.

I have negated my opponent. Thank you.

well this is an arguement with no difinitive answer. You cannot know if there are aliens or if there was a giant king kong. my poing is that is is possible even if there was no evidence. there have been sighting back in ancient times and evolution could have takenplace.

Con

My opponent creates an incoherent argument.

My opponent has failed to prove that it is possible for dragons to exist.

I urge a Con vote. Thank you.

Another invalid debate!! Is it inconceivable to argue possibility! possibility and probability always exists.

Question: "Is it a possibility that so called mythical dragons trule exist?" - quoted from Peacewab23

Answer: Yes, is it possible because all propositions are contingent.

A valid question would be: Did dragons exist?
