If you've ever wonder why those stupid flight attendants tell you to turn of your electronic devices its because airplanes run on magic! If you've ever asked a flight attendant why, they'll tell you that the electronic signals from your device can interfere with the airplanes navigation. Well, I can tell you now that is a lot of bull sh*t! There is no lift or thrust! A couple of dumbos went down to Kittyhawk and glued some sticks and old pants together and they f*cking flew! And no one knows why! Now we're just rocketing through space on a 30ton dumpster running on God knows what magic! So when they tell you to turn off your electronic devices just do it because who knows what could f*ck this sh*t up! Do you really want to dick around with magic? Then turn off your Twitter boxes, and video games for five seconds while you soar through the clouds like the Sun God of Hollow and just read your f*cking Sky Malls.

Firstly, nothing In your argument has proven that airplanes run on magic, All you have done is make wild accusations without providing any evidence for those outlandish statements. The real reasons that airplanes manage to speed down the runway and eventually lift off, is because they are aptly built with a lot of scientific thought put into them..

No official scientists will back up the claim that airplanes run on magic but they will defend the position that airplanes run due to a set of mathematical laws and physical principles.

Here is an article that helps to understand how airplanes work.

Note; none of the sources claim they are run by magic.

Conclusion;

My opponent has not provided any meaningful reason or evidence to take his claim true that airplanes are run on magic. Therefore the resolution as it stands has not been confirmed by Pro.

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk

You'll never walk
You'll never walk alone.

Reasons for voting decision: the law of aerodynamics isn't magic. Pro claims that all technology is magic, and FF's a round.
