If a claim is true, then it is not false.
Debate Rounds (1)
A claim is a proposition, something that can be true or false. For example, "the sky is blue" is a claim, and it is true. By contrast, "Lord Voldemort exists" is a claim that is false.
True means corresponding to reality, like my belief that I am sitting in a chair. False means failing to correspond to reality, like a crazy person's belief that he is Napoleon.
Now, given these definitions, we can clearly see that if a claim is true, then it is not false. If something corresponds to reality, then it doesn't fail to correspond to reality.
A basic axiom of classical logic is the double negation rule: if p, then not-not-p. This is basically the resolution; if a claim is true, then it is not the case that it is not the case that the claim is true. In other words, if a claim is true, then it is not false. 
I look forward to my opponent's rebuttal.

Reasons for voting decision: Case vs no case. Case will always win. The setup would have caused pro to automatically drop any and all points made by con, but con oddly dropped any and all points made by pro, and did not make any himself.
