Though everyone would enjoy another day off work I'll show that this is actually a bad idea.

The first instance of this new system we can use the example of the French Republic Calender. It had 10 days in a week and 10 months in a year. With some extra days added in at the end. (http://en.wikipedia.org...) This was appart of the French's war against the clergy as they sought to remove all things religious from society. If we do this here we can see that it would face the same backlash as we would be attempting to rid a religious 7 day week. So if you want to incite a religious war then be my guest, but I highly doubt that such a topic area should be ventured into as you could see a lot of religious backlash from it. Another key flaw is that the days would no longer be 24 hours nor would we have a regular year to to the breaking up of the calender. This would cause havoic upon the average person as not only are they being foreced to change their lifestyles you are living and force them to buy new clocks and systems to account for this extra day which can place a finacial burden on the average citizens.

I'm against about that. This topic makes me crazy this time. Adding a new day in a week? Do you mean 8 days a week? Sounds cool but if we do that, we should first study about the rotation of the Earth. Because the days in the calendar depends on the rotation of the Earth.

PS: Feel free to message me about this topic.

Reasons for voting decision: A smashing victory for Con. While Pro offered one argument for why we should add a day to the week, Con offered much stronger arguments for why we shouldn't. It would result in all kinds of havoc and turmoil. Besides that, pro forfeited, which is why I gave conduct to Con.
