We shouldn't look for extraterrestrial life because if they are advanced, they may be deadly and they might try to take over Earth. Lets say we have aliens from another planet right? We try speaking to them but they cannot understand us. Any type of movement we make towards them may be seen as a threat and they may attack us. Even if they don't attack us, how will they help our technology? I mean unless we can translate what they say
we can't understand any language they may have. Also on the fact that they aren't looking for peace, just another planet to habitat. They may try to take it from us by force or by other means.

I think that we should because, in the future we are bound to run out of needed supplies, and if they are smarter than they would most likely know where supplies are. They also are likely to want to meet us! I personally think that it is worth the risk.

So.... I guess he did not have a good argument.....
Well there are many other possibilities. I'll list some because I am bored and there is a lot of space left.

Maybe he did not post his arguments because:
1. He got sick.
2. He forgot.
3. He is lazy.
4. Debate.org had a glitch and did not notify him that he had arguments due.
5. He got angry when he lost a game so he smashed his computer, so he could not use it to post his debate.

Sera looks like she is a drug addict, therefore they do not matter.
