Pro

A insect went on top of my hands that. It was the baddest thing ever.

Con

I accept, and will post my arguments in a later round. You should not have flicked the insect off your hands.

"Bugs do serve useful purposes in this world, but God also designed them to be prolific so that they become food for animals and so that the species survives..." [1] Every species in the world has a purpose, and by killing it for no reason the stability of the food chain could be ruined. "People should ... coexist with the harmless spiders and the mosquito eaters and release the other bugs outside. " [2]

I await my opponent's response next round. I can not extend my arguments due to my opponents action of making only 15 minute arguments.

"It"s always best to relocate insects! Never to kill them" [1] " ' Insects were here first, by over 300 million years. Technically, we're on their turf. 'Insects killed the dinosaurs. What if T. Rex was still wandering around here, eating small children at will? " Other things eat insects, like birds and lizards and my cat. 'If you kill a good insect, you'll wind up with more bad insects than you can possibly kill. Then you'll be sorry. 'Some insects do essential jobs that Americans won't do, like pollinating flowers." [2]
"... it is unnecessary to kill other animals without reason." [3]

I hope my opponent will return shortly.
