I have been eating other people since I was about 12 years old.

It has been a tradition in my family for many years.

The muscle on a 150 pounder is nice and tender when you cook it. Just thinking of it makes my mouth water.

I'm not sure if there can even be an opposition to this but if someone does accept this challenge I thank them.

I thank my opponent for this debate and apologize again for declining his challenge, however, I found this topic too intriguing to give up.

As someone who has also been eating humans for quite some time, I must disagree with my opponent on some points.

Humans don't always taste great. Some humans taste absolutely disgusting and no amount of seasoning or marinade helps a tiny bit.

In addition, it takes a skill in cooking to get the meat as tender and juicy as my opponent states, doing it slightly wrong will yield terrible results. The meat tends to be dry and gamey with little to no flavor. Sometimes the meat is far too salty. Othertimes, it can just get stringy because human meat just goes down in quality with age

Thus I disagree with my opponent because it is clear that there are many, many instances in which human meat is just disgusting.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

I thank my opponent for his rebuttal, but the argument I was making was that humans taste good, not how one should cook them. Nor did I state that all humans taste good. Therefore my opponent did not make a valid response.
However, I must agree with the fact that old people taste disgusting. Its much better to get the youngins.

Con

My opponent has actually made the resolution of this debate "humans taste great", not "some humans taste great".

Had my opponent made the resolution "dogs are blue", which is a general statement encompassing all things we classify as "dogs". He would have the burden of proving that all dogs are in fact, blue. The resolution can be falsified by the discovery of one non-blue dog.

Thus, since my opponent has made the resolution "humans taste great" his burden is, indeed, to show that all humans taste great, and the resolution can be falsified by the discovery of one human that does not taste great.

I accept my opponent's counterargument that the method of cooking is irrelevant. In such case, I submit the exception of old people (who are still humans) who do not taste great.

My opponent himself has admitted that old people taste disgusting, thus, it negates the resolution that "humans taste great".

I thank my opponent and await his reply.
Debate Round No. 2
Kleptin

Con

I thank my opponent for his response, although it was a bit brief.

A brief recap:

As I have stated before, my opponent's burden is not simply to show that some humans taste great. When my opponent states "humans taste great", he is making an encompassing statement. If the resolution were "dogs are blue", then the resolution could be negated by finding one non-blue dog.

Since old humans count as humans, and since my opponent has admitted that old humans taste disgusting in round 2

"However, I must agree with the fact that old people taste disgusting"

Then my opponent has effectively conceded the debate.

Thank you to the audience, and to my opponent.
