I've been reading about Logical Fallacies and I've come up with a great idea!

We will have a debate that will not be judged on the strength of the argument but how poorly the argument is framed. In other words, as an exercise of growth (lol) we will construct the worst possible argument imaginable using as many logical fallacies as possible and just plain stupidity.

It will work like this...
All judging criteria will be reversed.
"Who had better conduct?" goes to the person with the worse conduct.
"Had better spelling and grammer?" is a bit trickier. We don't want to make the debate tedious to read, so this one is ignored and automatically Tied.
"Made more convincing arguments?" is where lulz begin. Whoever can make the most ridiculous arguments for their assigned topic wins this. The more logical fallacies the better!
"Used more reliable sources?" goes to whoever can come up with the most ridiculous, irelevant, biased sources they can find.

Now, topics will be assigned by ones opponent.
My opponent, whichever moron (see, bad conduct :P) decides to accept this challenge will accept my rules and assign me my first topic in their round one.
My opponents first topic will be assigned at the end of my round two.

I think this should be the source of many lulz.

I accept this stupid debate, nothing better to do with my time.

Your first topic is going to be whether or not Obama is from Africa.

Good Luck to me.

My topic is "Whether or not Obama is from Africa."
I will be taking the position that Obama is not from Africa and is actually in fact actually the terrorist leader Osama Bin Ladin.

---------------------------------------------------
FACT ONE: President Obama is a Muslim.
---------------------------------------------------
This is the first piece of evidence. As well all well know, all Muslims are actually murderous terrorists. Since the Reverend Franklin Graham says [1] that Obama is a Muslim and he matches the appearance of one it is without a doubt that Obama is a Muslim.
For one thing, why would a PRIEST lie? HE'S A PRIEST!!!
Second of all, how could 1 in 5 Americans (THAT'S OVER 40 MILLION!!!) be wrong?
It's completely impossible.

----------------------------------------------------------------
FACT TWO: He had plenty of time to disguise himself.
----------------------------------------------------------------
This is a VERY strong piece of evidence. According to leading plastic surgeon Dr. Nick Riviera's [2] expert testimony: "It would only take a few years for plastic surgery techniques to change the face of everybody, everybody!"
Since prior to President Obama assuming the role of Commander and Chief we know very little about his shady history and the fact that there is 8 years between said presidential campaign and the September 11 attacks, it is irrefutable that Osama would have plenty of time to assume the role which lead him to become president.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
FACT FOUR: Their names are too close for it to be a coincidence.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
This is piece of evidence that will completely convince you. This is what sparked the suspicions that lead me to this realisation. Look at the names…
O-S-A-M-A.
O-B-A-M-A.
It is obvious to me that the fact these names are only ONE letter different could only come from the fact that they are one and the same person.

--------------------------------------------
Conclusion
--------------------------------------------
Let put this in simple terms, so you idiots reading can understand.
Obama is a Muslim: This is proven fact.
Muslims are terrorists: This is common knowledge
Obama is both a Muslim and a terrorist.
Osama and Obama are the same person: I have proven this.
Thank you, my opponent need not reply.

My opponent is clearly ill with the implications that my contention brings to the table. I will only extend my previous arguments for fear of completely destroying him.

Well Con didn't present an argument, so the question is, is a bad argument by Pro a worse argument than a non argument by Con. Ill answer yes, A bad argument is worse than no argument all all, thus PRO wins.......

"I'm doing it again soon."

I've an idea for "who had better spelling and grammar" you should change that to "who made up the most amusing words" obviously there should be a limit to the amount of funny words or misspellings one can make, for example 5. I'm not interested in debating this but please tell me what you think of this idea.

I thought you were supposed to argue for false statements?
