Pro

My name doesn't involve an innuendo, and I'm not name-discriminating at all.

Debate.
FuzzyCatPotato

Con

Thank you, Pro.

---

BOP

Pro has the burden of proof (BOP) in this debate, because Pro is asserting something, while Con doesn't have to assert anything at all.

Thus, unless Pro proves the resolution true, Con wins. Because Pro has provided no arguments to prove that Pro is an alligator, Con wins.

---

Counter-Argument

Alligator means: "a large semiaquatic reptile" (1).

It's unlikely that Pro is an alligator, because alligators cannot type.

you have yet to explain how your red herring applies.

Random to a person with naivety - tandem to a person with advanced cognitivity.

its random. and that's what a red herring is, I expect you to look it up next time.

It seems to me that all you have done thus far is call my literature a red herring, a fallacy and some latin term I don't care to spell because I'm not going to resort to using words that have simpler forms to assure colloquial expertise.

Random observation? Or an observation that sees a grander picture that you cannot see for yourself?

again a red herring. your avoiding addressing my argument and instead posting a whole new random observation.

It's called life is a paradox of ideas and angles for perception. I'm baffled that you're so far behind from my state of intelligence, that you couldn't even understand that life is an ambage of properties.

wow that was the dumbest thing i've ever read. there are three types than you list them, then you add geniuses. then you list more 3 people. you clearly fall into the ignorant category.

I never was concerned with make-believe systems, so points and losing debates does not faze me.

There are three types of people in this world: the ignorant; the intelligent; the brilliant.

Intelligent people fix things - geniuses prevent them.

There are three types of people in this world: Those who make things happen; those that watch things happens; and those that wonder what happened.

your Argumentum ad hominem, is unappreciated. and FYI it lost you the debate. you attacked me, spammed content and didn't even debate. if you were as intelligent as you say you are you would win a debate through actual argumentation and not post fallacies that skew the debate

Yes, while I was applying no meaning to it. I was simply making it harder for you to handle me, by applying pressure to your ethos. I do this every time - I don't personally break down to insults. I just know what makes people tick, so I stimulate it.
