I simply forfeit the debate: for I have no idea what it even is. I assume this is a joke, that i've sadly ruined. Sorry. Joining the debate was simply pointless. I apologize.

Debate Round No. 2

Pro

The three possible scenarios:

1. You get the most points. Therefore, I lost, I should win.

2. I get the most points. I won the debate. Not lost it. Therefore, you should get the points. But if you should get the points, than I lose.

3. Tie. I did not lose the debate

Overall, there are 3 possible scenarios. 2 of them revolve around me losing. If I lose, I win.

Con

Goddamn it, every time I think of a loophole It can easily be proven wrong. You win the debate. I resign from giving myself
and more headaches. Congratulations; you've won the debate since I resign.

Well looks like the tie just broke the paradox.

A total paradox and complete fallacy. By posting voting period someone has to lose.

If you lose, you win = you win, you lose

So you have just as good of a change winning as you do losing, which means if we are to use this fallacy as a logical argument, you should technically tie since both of you are right.

To prevent confusion, I am pretty sure voters will pick you because Con ff'd. Using the fallacy as a logical appeal to the debate would result in voters resulting in whoever they feel like just because of their perspective of the paradox assuming that they take it seriously.

Reasons for voting decision: The debate was quite deep for something with such a small discussion. The topic of the debate was if Pro would lose this debate. It was up to pro to make the case and prove his position. Con did what Pro should have done, resign. Pro's resignation and refusal to complete in round 4 was in stark contrast to Pro's ability to prove the point. Typically I would vote for the person who completed the debate, however this was proven by Con to be a more convincing argument against Pro's position. Neither did much, so the only point I give was for the person After the debate. Funny and interesting.
