Reasons for voting decision: The resolution is a fact claim: "Life IS meaningless".. Therefore, Pro has full BOP to prove this fact claim. Pro argues that it is humans that have constructed meanings.. before humans there was no meaning, but there still was life. So, since life was once without meaning, then it is still meaningless. Firstly, it assumes that something that is humans' construction doesn't exist which is not true. Since when something is constructed, then it exists. Secondly, for example, as Con pointed out, when you look at the sun for about 10 minutes, your eyes will be hurt.. In other words, keeping something weak like your eyes under sun's illumination means that it will be harmed. This characteristic of sun existed even before humans, humans only discovered it. Since the resolution was a fact claim and hence the BOP was fully on Pro and since Pro didn't sufficiently and convincingly affirm the resolution, then the points for arguments go to Con by default..
