Know is everything
ssadi

Con

I accept and thank Pro for instigating this topic. It would be better if they made it with more rounds than one, but anyways.

Since the instigator didn’t define any definition, then I will do instead.




DEFINITIONS


From the resolution we understand that “know” is a verb.


Know:

Verb =>

To perceive or understand as fact or truth; to apprehend clearly and with certainty.[1]

OR

Be aware of through observation, inquiry, or information.[2]

OR

Have knowledge or information concerning.[2]


Everything:All things.[3]



REBUTTAL

Pro claims that they know everything. The BOP was fully on Pro to prove their claim.


The only argument they presented was that “Know is everything”.


First of all, as we see from the definitions I provided, “know” cannot be “everything” , because “everything” is not a verb3 and “know” is a verb.

Second, “know is everything” is a bare assertion that needs first to be proved.

Third, Pro doesn’t show how “Know is everything” proves that they know everything.

Fourth, 95% of the universe is dark (dark matter and dark energy) and we, including Pro, almost know nothing about it. This is true, until Pro proves otherwise.[4]



CONCLUSION


Pro only provided one irrelevant bare assertion as an argument which didn’t affirm the resolution in any level, as I showed above. I also provided some other arguments that it is impossible for Pro to know everything.



Vote Con please!

Reasons for voting decision: BoP is on Pro. Pro fails to fill, it just making one stupid bare assertion. Con uses sources to support his claims. Con rebuts Pro's arguments when Pro can't. Vote for Con/

Reasons for voting decision: Con effectively debaces Pro's one line debate by clearly and unequivably showing how Pro is incorrect, by provong a bare statement of "I know this", doesnt mean squat without evidence to back it up. Points for argument to Con.
