I will argue that that ignorance isn`t bliss. First round is acceptance and then we proceed with the debate.

Good luck to my opponent.
Illegalcombatant

Pro

First round is for accepting, this is me accepting.

Oh O I think Con has disappeard. But just in case they return I'd better give an argument.

There are things that once you understand, the result will be sadness or at least take a slice out of your bliss. For example everyone including you is going to die. Also some where in the world there is a person who has been kidnapped is having unspeakable things being done to them.

So were you happier or less happy once you become aware of these things ? Ergo Ignorance is Bliss.

Maybe Con was so devastated by my argument showing Ignorance is bliss, they weren't able to continue with this debate.

1) Tide goes in, tide goes out
2) You can't explain that !!!
3) Therefore Ignorance is bliss

Vote Pro.

Lol I was just about to make this for my first debate XD

Pretty much agree with pro, I've debated this subject multiple times and not seen any arguments that contradict the quote.
