The Answer to Life is the number 42

Good Luck and try to prove me WRONG :)

Con

While it may or may not have been observed that 42 is The Answer To Life, this could be very subjective. Maybe somebody who really enjoys cooking feels that The Answer To Life is making various delicious dishes or that somebody who enjoys video games feels that The Answer To Life is beating every single video game. The possibilities are endless. The Answer To Life can be whatever you make it; do what you enjoy. :)

Thank you for this short debate. Good luck to both of us!

Hmm...well I didn't realize it was reference to something until after I accepted the debate. I should have read more closely before accepting it. :/

All InsertNameHere had to do was say.

"Argument from Ignorance"

and that would have been enough. XD

Neither side has good points. Therefore if I could vote, I'd give everything to con.

Reasons for voting decision: Really guys? Pro didn't even try. Con's argument was rather weak, but sufficed. You can't just post an article and then say "prove me wrong". This was a wasted debate.

Reasons for voting decision: If you don't provide any analysis on the source, then it is just source spamming, so I don't take the source into account. So, after that happens, all I have on the pro is an assertion with no warrant. At least con makes sense.
