ok, lol, thanks for this utterly pointless debate, but im onli participating for a win, and because i'm bored.

My opponent states, "Vote for Pro if you believe I will lose this debate." Well, he is Pro. And if you believe he will lose, then you can not vote for him, since that would disprove this statement that he will lose. Anyway, this statement is completely illogical, since if a voter believes that a person will lose, then they will clearly vote against him/her.

Now, the resolution states, "I will lose this debate." This is in reference to my opponent, the Pro, the instigator. thus, you must negate.

Yeah I agree there is no rule or law against this, do these debates all you like. It is not like God has not said not to debate such debates.

I would never take place in these debates though. I wouldn't participate.

It would only be a cheap way to get wins with you due to your judging paradigm, which I must say is quite favorable in this circumstance :)

For everyone else, however, this debate would be determined purely by which debater they liked more. This is the sad truth of this debate, seeing that it is a paradox in that voting for either side is a logical contradiction. Thus, there can be no true "winner" here because both sides are inherently flawed. I think this is an interesting experiment and not just a silly debate as most people will mark it off as.

I appreciate your (and everyone else who has posted in this') interest in this, though. :D

Haha man this debate is funny, how you say my spelling is bang on is so correct in a smug and in all fairness way. I would vote for you, however I am unable to vote. Debate.org want my mobile number but it will not allow it to enter?

This though I have to admit is a cheap and easy way to gain wins.

One of his criteria was "Being correct". How is that determined, godsands?

Then, GodSands, I hope you will be convinced to vote for me as I did not exhibit any spelling mistakes in my argument. In addition, it is impossible for either side to win this debate because it is paradoxical. Thus, if your only criterion is grammar and spelling after correctness, it appears as though you are obligated to vote for the affirmative side of this debate.

I think debates count on being correct, grammar and spelling skills.
