Con

In fact you do not like pie, as in reality you are just a brain in a jar in another dimension floating in chemicals. Your whole life is a lie and what you think you like is just a figment of your imagination. Therefore it is impossible for you to like pie as you have never tasted it, or never even heard of it until your brain decided to confirms its existence. George Chatalain explains "So stated, [T]he inductive argument for the existence of the external world is thus seen to require[s] the assumption of the very point which it is supposed to prove: the existence of the population, which is, to the extent that it is larger than the sample, just the external world. Stated in terms of Professor Williams"s logic of induction, [T]he [This] problem of the existence of the external world amounts to the problem of the existence of a population (in so far as it is larger than the sample); and the crucial point of this critique is that, when the logic of induction is so set up that it requires, as a general major premise in every inductive argument, the law of large numbers, that logic also requires the assumption of the existence of a population. Since [T]he law of large numbers, being a purely logical law, cannot categorically assert, or by its own force establish, the existence of the population, [thus] the whole inductive argument for the existence of the external world becomes a conditional or hypothetical argument, and thus becomes logically incapable of establishing the existence

of the external world."

Reasons for voting decision: Let's say that I'm not sure if Pro likes pie or not, but I do know that Con wins for being the only person who was arguing. I mean, saying "Hi." is not arguing their topic. So, Con wins my vote.

Reasons for voting decision: Con's argument stands unrefuted. Pro's argument...wait..Pro didn't have an argument. Con could've gotten the source vote if he had cited his source.
