Opening:

I'd like to extend greetings to readers, voters, and Con.

Con and I agreed to debate this with each other.

Definitions:

For the debate, evil is going to be defined as: "Pain and suffering"

Religion shall be defined as: "(1) an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods (2) The Belief in a God or group of Gods"

Debate Layout:

We are allowed to have 5 rounds of arguing:

1: Acceptance of the rules.
2: Pro gives opening arguments, con makes rebuttals and opening contentions.
3: New arguments and rebuttals by both sides.
4: Rebuttals. No new arguments.
5: Conclusion/Rebuttals.

Closing Information:

I'd like to ask for Con to contact me with any questions he has.

This debate is meant to be respectful. Though I admit, this is a highly touchy subject. I do not wish to offend people.

Send all hate mail to me in a PM.

With that, I pass over our newborn debate to Con.

Make good choices.

Con

I accept this debate along with all the rules and definitions presented.

I certainly do hope we can go through the entirety of this debate without offending too many people :D

Good luck!

One Piece is better than Naruto
Debate Round No. 3

I think Naruto started better than One Piece, but further into the series One Piece has gone up while Naruto has gone way down in my opinion...
Romanii

Con

You watch them?

I agree, though.
I'd say the point where One Piece surpassed Naruto was the Ennies Lobby Arc (episode 270ish)

I read them, and watched some Naruto just when I wanted to see Ninja's fighting eachother.

I knew you would.

Sure. I only watched the first couple, then I took up Bleach and abriged versions of Anime's.
Romanii

Con

Cool...

Good talk, I guess.

I hope we get to redo this debate soon.

Bye! :D

To the voters: YOU DON'T EXIST!!!!

Reasons for voting decision: Although we are as voters not obligated to sympathize with terms and conditions agreed upon between debaters, we can still vote according to the sites rules concerning debates, and Pro failed to fulfil his BOP. nevertheless I will honour the agreement between both of you for a no vote debate. But I think this was a blatant avoidance to defend the resolution, as it is obviously near on impossible to defend. Pain and suffering is applicable to everybody regardless if they are religious or not, even before we know or understand what religion is, we are destined to suffer. Con was very lenient to allow the debate to be abandoned as it was clearly a simple win for Con. Even for this I want to award him conduct. But as it stands I wont. But Just for the record, I am not obligated to vote regarding your own agreements but down to the way the debate pans out, and in this debate Pro did not defend the resolution.
