Music has a connection to all humans' soul
Debate Rounds (3)
soul-the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.
Music, like everything else, belongs to this material world, and nothing can connect with the immaterial soul. While all cultures have some or the other type of music, it isn't necessary that everyone likes it. Music may connect with our brain, our mind, our emotions, but it can't connect with our soul. Why? Because music belongs to this world, and as time passes, it too evolves.
Albert Einstein and other geniuses weren't musicians, were they? The music and the brain's relation is a bare assertion, and it doesn't pertain to the resolution, for the brain is not the soul.
Plus, do you mean to imply that before the invention of music, man lacked a brain? From what we know about the human race, there wasn't a time when we lacked such a fundamental organ in our structure. Even the smallest of animals have a brain, and show elementary signs of intelligence. I argue that the practices of hunting, farming, building shelter and using fire had started much before the invention of music, and these activities require intelligence.
Plus, if I like transformers to the extreme, doesn't mean that it will connect with my soul. The soul is the immaterial part of our human body (according to the definition), and no things material will be able to connect with it. Sounds, smells, sights are all part of the material world.

Reasons for voting decision: Con argues that music is not connected to man's soul because there was a time man existed without music. Pro says music and man are like "2 sides of a coin" but that doesn't answer Con's point. Pro must prove why music is part of the soul without just repeating that it is. Pro says music is a profound part of culture and the spirit. Con says that just because music is a byproduct of the brain doesn't mean it's connected to the soul which may be 2 distinct things. He also suggests some people are not connected to music and have different inspirations or connections (like science) which Pro did not respond to.
