Logic is cause and effect, equal is plus and minus
Debate Rounds (5)
Hello, Pro, I accept this debate.
You seem to be making up definitions for these words, equal, plus, and minus.
Your definitions based on your opening argument:
Equal: When you hold your hand in front of oneself
Plus: Where you can move your hand to
Minus: How your hand got to where it is
This is flawed because these words do not mean that, and your made up definitions do not seem to have a word to go along with them, as far as I'm aware.
You can find the actual definitions for those words here:
If you would like to clarify what you meant please do so next round.
Additionally, you have no proof that you are equal because you can do addition as well as subtraction.
how can you add without a cause?
You've addressed none of my arguments, you simply restate that your hand is currently in front of you, according to your made up definitions of the words, so my point still stands.
As for the second paragraph of your argument, it is completely incomprehensible, so I will not comment on it.
Your third paragraph poses the question "How can you add without a cause" which is completely unrelated to my arguments nor does it help you prove yours, so my points still stand.
Remember that you have the full BoP, you have to prove these things in order to win the debate.
how can I move my hand from where it is without adding and retracting?
adding is retracting, and retracting is adding
You still have no proof for any of your statements, you have the full burden of proof, yet you have shown no evidence for any of your claims.
You pose the question "How can I move my hand from where it is without adding and retracting?", which does not help prove your point, it even assumes that your made up definitions are true.
Again, you make up a brand new definition making antonyms into synonyms. The two words being adding and retracting.
Again like most of your previous arguments, this has nothing to do with anything, you simply pose the question "How can you give a soda without taking a soda from somewhere?" which is completely irrelevant and does not help prove your point.
I am not denying that to give something you must have acquired it from somewhere, if that was what you were thinking.
Next round is your final chance to fullfill you BoP.
This debate now ends with you making more claims without even attempting to fulfill BoP, I warned you in previous rounds that this would happen but let's look over your closing arguments.
"It means you can't add without retracting." Please give proof of this claim please?
"There is no effect without cause." Again, please give proof before or after making the claim.
You can't move your finger without adding and retracting." Once again, provide proof of this claim.
I cannot even begin to try and debate you because you were too busy making claims and not even trying to fulfill BoP, if you would like to try and fulfill BoP in another debate with me, feel free to challenge me to a debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Tie. Both had proper conduct throughout. S&G - Con. Pro had several spelling errors throughout this debate, whereas Con had nowhere near as much. Arguments - Con. Pro completely failed to affirm the resolution by failing to maintain the BOP. Pro also presented subjective definitions that he seemed to create himself whereas Con presented definitions commonly accepted by society. Overall, Pro failed to perform well in his arguments whereas Con effectively rebutted all claims raised. Sources - Con. Pro failed to utilize sources in this debate whereas Con did. Clear win for Con.
