Green is purple......triangles are trapizoids.....i think i have made my point clear.
If you invert green it is purple. So what if what we see is inverted and what is green is actually purple. Point made
Biodome

Con

A. RGB value of Green is (0, 255, 0), while Purple is (128, 0 128).
Therefore, Green is objectively different from Purple.


B. Image of Green grass:


Image of Purple flower:


The colours seen in these images have a visibly different quality.


Rebuttal:

Pro states that "If you invert green it is purple". If you invert something, it will result in change. My opponent is thus effectively saying: If you change Green, it becomes Purple. This implies that Green is different from Purple.

The resolution is negated.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro forfeited so immediate loss of conduct. Both Pro and Con made a minor grammar mistake so that's tied. Con had much better arguments - he definitively won this category when he pointed out that inverting a color means changing it. Con also used sources while Pro didn't.
