Pro

Dave Ramsey helps countless people everyday with their financial problems and should be given all the awards known to mankind for it.
Blade-of-Truth

Con

I accept this debate.

For the record, Pro is arguing that Dave Ramsey is the best person in the world.

I will be arguing that Dave Ramsey *is not* the best person in the world.

Best is defined as: better than all others in quality or value; most skillful, talented, or successful; most appropriate, useful, or helpful. [1]

I will now return the floor to Pro so he may begin with his opening arguments.

Thank you.

Pro

According to debate.org, Dave Ramsey is indeed the best person in the world with a whopping 60% to 40%
Blade-of-Truth

Con

Pro clearly fails to understand what his BOP is in a debate like this. For Pro to win, he needs to prove that Dave Ramsey is the best person in the world. Considering there are over 7 billion people in the world nowadays, Pro better get started.

The subjective opinions of DDO users holds no grounds in this debate when the term "best" has objective standards that can be applied. Thus, your statistics are null and void.

Does Dave Ramsey have more talent than Mariah Carey in singing? No.

Is Dave Ramsey as financially successful as Bill Gates? No.

Is Dave Ramsey as skillful as Michael Phelps at swimming? No.

Each of these examples contain key words found in the definition of the term "best".

Not only will Pro need to overcome these 3 challenges, but he'll still also need to prove that Dave Ramsey is better than every other living person in our world. Remember, there are over 7 billion.

I wish Pro the best of luck in fulfilling his enormous Burden of Proof.

Thank you.

Pro

According to daveramsey.com, you can sell your car and get out of debt.
Blade-of-Truth

Con

Being able to sell your car is nothing that is attributable to someone being better than literally every other person alive in our world. Pro continues presenting irrelevant arguments that serve no purpose in regards to affirming the resolution.

Pro has failed to provide any rebuttals to the three challenged I raised.
As it stands, I've presented three people which are arguably better than Dave Ramsey.

Pro needed to prove that Dave Ramsey is the best person in the world and failed to do so.

I provided rebuttals to every argument he raised, whereas he failed to provide any rebuttals to my arguments.

For these reasons, I urge the audience to vote for Con.

Thank you.

kbub are you too proud to accept any debate? Or you do just want people to think you are too proud when indeed you just have nothing you can use to argue against them?

People like this need to be educated though, in this case it'll be a lesson against absolute claims and subjective preferences. If no one shows them the error of their ways, they are bound to repeat the same mistake.

This is an even more ridiculous Dave Ramsey debate than the one I started... oh wait it was with the same guy. That explains it. I agree with kbub as well.
