Icarus57

Pro

My opponent has stated he is in fact the greatest person who has ever lived.

This is NOT true, I am in the negation of this statement for the following reasons:

1. He is pompous
My opponent has already made a dire mistake, he has said that he is greater than every other being that has ever been created.
Through being pompous and self-exalting, he already has demonstrated he is a jerk. When a person praises themselves, and is extremely egotistic, they will
get nowhere in life. Those who are humble succeed, those who are self focused and centered often find themselves disliked by others, which can only
lead to disputes.

examples:

This was found on my opponent's profile as part of his Bios:

I argue very well. Ask any of my remaining friends. I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me. - Dave Barry

Take note my opponent stated to ask only any of his "remaining" friends. This could have several disturbing connotations and inferences:
a) InfraRedEd has killed many of his friends, therefore accounting for the fact he has few "remaining" friends, this shows he is a killer. *a bad thing
b) InfraRedEd is a jerk, he has very few friends "remaining" *a bad thing

2. Errrr... yea...

3. Yeah!~

Not only is my opponent arguing the wrong side but his account has been suspended again.
And it's not hard to tell who it/they is/are.

Multiple Personality Disorder, also known as Dissociative Identity Disorder, is not only one of the most difficult to treat of all mental illnesses, but is extremely treatment-resistant, not to mention the general lack of misunderstanding about it. Please try and be more misunderstanding.

Our misunderstanding of this disorder could lead to breakthroughs in treatment of many other disorders such as OCD.

Ed is against the fact that he is the greatest person who ever lived...and the Pro is arguing on the wrong side. How intriguing.

Yeah. Ed will win this debate if this site is still fair.

Icarus,
You are on the wrong side! You must show Ed is the greatest person. I believe you have been duped, Sir, as you are arguing for the Con.

Watch out Icarus! He's saying he isn't the best dude around. You're supposed to support the resolution, as you are Pro/For.

Maybe you should respond to your current debates, rather than starting another one with little effort.
