It is a belief of mine that first humans are created a certain way. Second for something to be good then a good product must come from it. I challenge my opponent to defend homosexuality as a part of HN.

If one assumes that what is unnatural is evil, and that what is natural is good the question if whether homosexuality is good or evil comes down to whether it's natural or unnatural. I believe that homosexuality is just as natural as heterosexuality which means it's as good as it too, and that there is no evidence to suggest that homosexuality is not as natural as heterosexuality

This is where your arguement fails. There indeed is logical evidence to prove this. Biologically, homosexuality cannot produce what all can agree on is good , life. If something is good it must produce more good things. A heterosexual relationship is good because it produces more life and true love spawned from that life. Also If something is the truth you would want to advocate it. If you advocate homosexuality and it spreads then you have extinction. Again some logic , truth =truth truth is not truth and other things , only one thing can be truthful.

I'm afraid your argument is flawed, something that is good does not have to create good things since you are not defined by your creations. So homosexuality can still be considered good.

I think you are defined by your creations or your actions. In what other means would we be defined? God is good because he originally created all as good. You are partially evil if you create a machine whose sole intent is killing.. I'm not saying homosexuals are evil themselves but that homosexuality is not a good things so that they are going to a bad belief...

We are defined by our actions not by the actions of those we created. Creating something intended for evil is an evil action but creating something with no definite purpose can not define you. So my argument still stands that homosexuality is good, as it does not have to produce something good to be good.

With this your implying that humans don't either (A) have a natural tendency towards. Good or (B) were not created for the purpose of good

Yes I'm implying both of these, I believe humans are born with the equal potential to be Good and evil which means that people don't have to born for good.

Con also used the slippery slope fallacy in round 3. (homosexuality = extinction)

In round 4 Con also delves into an entirely different and unrelated debate.

This is over, Con lost entirely.

Con has made several glaring assumptions.

Con immediately defines the unnatural as immoral.

Con assumes homosexuality is not natural.

Con sates that something may only be morally "good" if "good" is created from it.

Con states 'life' is inherently "good", an entirely separate and unresolved debate.

Con assumes the only "good" that can come from two people in a "relationship" unit is procreation.

Con fails to see mutual love as morally "good".

Con has arbitrarily decided procreation is the only path to morally "good" status for any couple.

Round 3 just lost due to defining homosexuality as an action and applying morality to that.

Homosexuality is not a good or bad action according to morality, there is no evidence to support such a claim unless you use religious text in the commandment-sense.

You would therefore limit your argument to the level of "it's against what this god said from this religion", which is an argument from authority fallacy.

I'm new to this, hopefully I'm not responding too much or "spoiling" the debate. Just wanted to add my piece.
