My proposition: Jesus didn't smoke. Not cigarettes, not cigars, not cigarillos.

Con may rebut at will.
FreedomBeforeEquality

Con

True only that there was no written record of him doing that.

Its too far lost to history and buried by canonization to ever know for sure.

(That's as much of a con I could muster ... haha)

I guess this means I win again.

Now for some cute cat videos:

Wait, what? Do you have any first hand accounts of people saying they never saw him smoke? Photos? I still don't think you have adequate proof for your claim.

Who would have ever thought cat videos would be so divisive. :/

I'll take widely accepted, but impossible to prove as fact.

Considering (as far as I'm aware) this is a widely accepted fact, I don't understand the need for this debate. Good luck Con!

Reasons for voting decision: Con wins on conduct, for at least staying with the debate. Also, YouTube is not a reliable source whatsoever for pro.
