I only have 5 minutes, so here we go.

To translate my opponnet's resolution into plain English: "Juan Ponce De Leon was Sexy?"

Now, obviously he alone has the burden of proof to defend this resolution.

There are several reasons why he cannot hope to complete this burden.


First, the question, according to Google Translator, asks whether Juan Ponce De Leon "was" sexy, not whether he is sexy. This is indicative of the "past tense," and implicit in that is that he was, but no longer is, sexy.

This distinction appears tangential, but is actually quite relevant, as Mr. Ponce De Leon died in 1521, so all we know about him is in the past tense.

Now, let me pose this to the audience: can you make a judgment in the present tense over someone who lived before you and whom you have never met?


Second, my appoint is making an appeal to objectivity. This, however, cannot be done, as this is a subjective term. So, if even one person were to doubt this resolution, the resolution would fall apart.

For instance, I happen to be heroeseuxal, and therefore I do not think of this man, or any man, as "sexy."

Therefore, the resolution is negated.
