This debate is going to be based around whether or not fossil hunting should remain legal. Whoever accepts this debate will be arguing in favor of making fossil hunting illegal. First, I shall clarify some key terms:

Fossil: the remains or impression of a prehistoric organism preserved in petrified form or as a mold or cast in rock.
Fossil hunting: the collection of fossils for hobby or profit (for debate purposes, scientific collecting is not included).

And now, I shall clarify some rules of this debate:

1. Serious debaters only. No trolls.

2. Anyone who accepts this debate is arguing against fossil hunting remaining legal.

3. Forfeiting a round will automatically result in forfeiture of the debate to me and vice versa.

4. Use credible sources to reinforce your arguments

5. Finally, you must follow the debate structure. It is as follows:

Round 1: Debate acception
Round 2: Opening statements
Round 3: Counter arguments
Round 4: Rebuttals
Round 5: Closing statements

That being said, may my opponent have a good debate.
