Water can't be wet. Think about it. An object in the water... I'd say that that object is more wet than the water in fact if say water isn't wet at all... It causes things to be wet. I say that wet is a measurement of how much something is covered with water. Now you might say well water is already wet... But really it's covered in itself ... Ergo there's no comparison(0).

Then what makes the water wet? The definition of wet is soaked with water. So the definition itself proves this. It's that simple, I could do more but I got some other debates to attend to. Bye.

So you forfeit?

umm.. no not at all. The definition itself sates that the verb wet means soaked with water. So how could anything be wet without water, when the definition states something must have water on it to be "wet"

I'm saying is water wet? No . You're saying that water is wet in itself .... Nanana wetness is a measurement ... A change. A rug soaked in water is wet, a regular rug does not have water on it. Water on the other hand was already with other water...(0) change /no measurement

That implies the fact that water is indeed "wet". For something to be wet the object must make contact with water because water is wet. My opponents argument is weird and somewhat bizarre, he has failed to show the burden of proof and has confused me quite a bit. Plzz vote pro!

I don't get it. How can water not be wet? I mean, if it causes things to be wet, then shouldn't it be wet as well? I mean, how can it cause things to be wet if it isn't wet? That's just ridiculous.

I've removed my vote. In fairness, my vote may have been biased due to a previous debate.

I'm sure you'll get other opinions! To both of you, may the odds be ever in your favor.

Con defined WET as "a MEASUREMENT of how much something is covered with water". By that definition, whether or not we can measure to what degree water is covered by water is central to the outcome. I pointed out two counters to his argument, but ultimately I must vote based on what occured in the debate and not how I would personally have rebutted them.

Reasons for voting decision: Water is wet because water is soaked with water. Basically, water on water = wet. Good job, PRO.
