People Exist. Noone can debate this, because it is true. Prove that it's not.

I didn't realize this debate was only two rounds. If you want you can challenge me or post the topic again.

As far as the argument, the fact that people exist is not true.

True- being in accordance with the actual state or conditions; conforming to reality or fact; not false: a true story.
reliable, unfailing, or sure: a true sign.

The only thing that makes us aware of other people is our sense experience (I see people, hear people, bump into people etc.) However, our sense experience is dubious and therefore can not be relied upon. So, since the only thing I have to verify (or make true) the fact that people exist is my sensory experience of them, which is dubious, it cannot be made certain or true that people exist.

well i'll be. you dare to come in here and just insult me? if you hate what i do, then ignore me. This is a public site. If you don't like something, then ignore it. I hate tobacco companies, but i don't send them messages that insult and humiliate them.

Why did you get theozaz kicked off, may i ask?

Really dude, this is completely and utterly pointless. I hate it when people like you waste my time.
You remind me of this guy that I got kicked off named theozaz.
