Objective Reality Must Exist
Debate Rounds (3)
Objective Reality - A reality that exists outside of personal beliefs, whims or opinions.
Discern - To recognize or discover.
First round is for acceptance, or if you'd like, you may put forward the opening argument. I hope for a good debate!
The argument for objective reality - that is, external truths - is simple. It can be shown through asking simple questions which I will demonstrate.
The first question would be, is there an objective reality?
If you answer yes, then all is well. If you answer no, then a number of following questions can be asked. If you answer no, I would ask, is that objectively true? Is it true that there is no objective reality? If it is, then an objective statement has been made concerning reality, which is that it is objectively true that reality is subjective.
Or perhaps a could ask, is there an answer to the first question? If you say yes there is, and the answer to the first question is no, then you have made another objective statement, that yes, there is a definite answer to the first question.
As perhaps a slightly weaker but supportive argument, even if the universe could somehow be subjective, if it was truly subjective, than wouldn't, subjectively, my belief in an objective universe be valid?
This is a basic but I believe very strong proof of objective reality. I look forward to seeing my opponent's response.

Reasons for voting decision: Con forfeited and never really made a case. Pro's case wasn't necessarily that strong, but without a rebuttal, it does stand.
