You guys know it.

To win this debate my opponent will have to show why he fits the definition of "a smart". The way my opponent has written out the resolution a 'smart' is a noun. This means that my opponent cannot win this debate by proving that he is 'smart' where smart is an adjective used to describe one's intelligence. He must prove that such a thing as "a smart" exists and he is one of them. I contend that there is no such thing as a 'smart' and therefore my opponent cannot be one and thus automatically loses this debate.

My IQ is around 130, which is smart. As a refrence point, 140 is considered to be a "genius".

//"My IQ is around 130, which is smart. As a refrence point, 140 is considered to be a "genius"."//

My opponent has not proven that his IQ is 130 so we may discard this. Also, if my opponent read my R1 argument he would see that his resolution dos not say "I am smart" but that "I am a smart". The structure of this sentence implies that 'smart' is a noun. My opponent hs yet to prove that there exists any such thing as "a smart" or that he is one of them.

That was my bad, i meant to say I am smart.

Even as my opponent has decided to change the resolution in the middle of the debate, he has yet to prove that he is in fact smart. My opponent made the claim in R2 tha his IQ is 130 however he has not and has yet to provide evidencec of this claim. Until my opponent can do this, he loses by default.

An IQ around 130 is considered to be "smart".
socialpinko

Con

I am not arguing that having an IQ of 130 does not make one "smart". My opponent simply has not brought any evidence that would convince us that he has an IQ of 130. Unless he does this we cannot assume that my opponent is "smart".

Look at how much I make and my college.
socialpinko

Con

My opponent has brought two new arguments which will allegedly prove that he has an IQ of 130 and is "smart".

Money and college

My opponent claims that he makes a lot of money and therefore he is smart. However my opponent has not brought any evidence to support this claim other than what he has filled out on his profile information. He has not brought any external evidence to prove that he makes this muc money or that he goes to the college which he claims he goes to.

Seeing as this is the last round and my opponent has yet to bring any evidenc of his claims I urge a Con vote.

Wow what type of debate topic is this. There's no way to prove that Mr.Smart here is actually smart. We ahve no idea of who you are so why should we believe you. For all we know you could be a hbo who lives in a refrigerator in a New York subway station. Geez people do sensible debates that you'll actually have a chance of winnning at. :O

It's already been agreed that he probably has a negative IQ.
