Red is better because it is the color of blood and love. Peace and war. What is blue? The ocean? Nope the ocean is water and water isn't blue.
PugsRule11

Con

Based on the fact that my opponent has not advanced the definition of the vague term "better", I submit the following from Dictionary.com:

"of superior quality or excellence"

Is it of superior quality?

If something is of better quality, it has a positive quality that makes it more desirable to use (functions better, stronger, more durable). Blue and red only have a different shade and a different color. Neither is more useful, stronger, functional, etc. than the other. A red tile is no more desirable for usage than the blue one.

Rebuttal to My Opponent.
1. Since when has red been used to symbolize peace? It is the color of war!
2. While it is true that the ocean is not technically blue, love is not colored red. In both cases, society has grown to associate certain colors with things.
3. Blue has plenty of meaning. See my final argument to find these meanings.

Argument from the Objective Viewpoint.
Whether red is better than blue is a question with no consistent, universal answer. It is just as "right" to believe that blue is better than red as it is to believe the opposite. It is not a truth that red is better than blue. It is, rather, a personal opinion. You can not validly claim that red is universally better than blue.

Argument from the Subjective Viewpoint and Meaning of Blue.
Blue has grown over time to symbolize depth, stability,expertise, piety, sincerity, tranquility, and intellect. Red on the other hand is widely used on danger signs, is a symbol of war (a great vice), and power (absolute power corrupts absolutely). Red has also been shown to raise people's blood pressure.
