Hello DDO, daley stated in a previous debate that he has 10 questions that will cause me to contradict myself. Let's see

Structure
Round 1: Pro will give terms and agreements, con will present first questions
Round 2: Pro will respond to con's 1st set of questions and con will present 2nd set of questions.
Round 3: Pro will respond to the 2nd set of questions and con will give the 3rd set of questions
Round 4: Pro will respond to the 3rd set of questiosn and con will give the 4th set of questions
Round 5: Pro will respond to the 4th set of questions and con will present any contradictions.

Rules
If at any time, pro contradicts himself, he will automatically lose.
Con may NOT ask any questions regarding sex or sexuality

Con may NOT ask the same question twice.
If con breaks the rules, pro automatically wins.

Good luck!

Thanks for your reply and thought-provoking questions.

Question1, Are you mentally insane?

I am NOT mentally insane.

Question 2, Are you sure you are not mentally insane?

Positive. I know for a fact I am not mentally insane.

Question 3, How do you know this?

MRI, tests, medical examinations etc.

Question 4, Do insane people know if they are insane or insane or not?

I do not know. I am not a mentally insane person so how would I know that?

Question 5, Are you sure we are having this debate right now?

No, I am not sure.

Question 6, How do you know you are not imagining this debate and in reality, are locked up in an instutution, lost in your imaginary world?

Since I am unsure we are having this debate, I am unsure that this is not being imagined.

Question 7, What what does zero mean?

In what context? http://dictionary.reference.com... tons of possible contexts for zero

Question 8, Does zero represent nothing?

I'm unsure what context you are using so I cannot answer this question.


Question 9, Is it possible to have less than zero of something?

No.

Question 10, What is sound?

In what context? There are lots of possible answers for what sound is. http://dictionary.reference.com...

Back to you.

I apologize for forfeiting my last round. I had no access to the internet. My internet is down and I am using my cousin's computer. On to the questions.

In Science, what does 1degrees celsius mean?

In Science, what does 0 degrees mean?

Define what it means to be insane

Is truth decoded by majority vote?

What is the difference between believing, and knowing?

Do you believe you are not mad, or do you know you are not mad?

In the last round we will see how opponent has contradicted himself

I apologize for forfeiting my last round. I had no access to the internet. My internet is down and I am using my cousin's computer. On to the questions.

I understand

In Science, what does 1degrees celsius mean? 1 degree above freezing

In Science, what does 0 degrees mean? Freezing

Define what it means to be insane? Not normal, acting in a weird manner.

Is truth decoded by majority vote? No

What is the difference between believing, and knowing? Believing is accepting something as true wheither you see it or not (i.e. faith), knowing is accepting truth because we can see it and expierence it for ourselves.

Do you believe you are not mad, or do you know you are not mad? I know I'm not mad

In the last round we will see how opponent has contradicted himself Hmm...you think you found a contradiction, eh? I'd love to see it!

Anyway, I have won this debate. Vote pro!

If con breaks the rules, pro automatically wins. You have broke the rules as you forfeited the last round, and you presented 6 and not 10 questions so vote pro!

my opponent forfeited TWICE and broke the rules on the last round! This couldn't be a much clearer win for me.

VOTE PRO!

My opponent wins this debate due to my forfeiting, so its not logical for me to continue arguing. I've recently regained my internet access so if my opponent wants to restart this debate that is fine, but I conceed that he won.
