5 minutes to post. I must be brief.

My opponent appears confused about the role of PRO and CON. My opponent is currently arguing for PRO, while he is CON. I will be generous, and argue for the CON case while my opponent argues for the PRO case. Please vote based on whose arguments are better, not on who supports "their" side better since the sides are switched.

Why we should NOT disband the Hadron Collider:

1. The Hadron Collider poses no threat to humanity.
2. It will give untold benefits. We may learn about the origin of the universe and more. The more we learn, the better off we will be. The Hadron Collider is a great source of knowledge, and humankind can get so much from it.

My opponent has not backed up his claim about the environment. It is barely even coherent.

Vote PRO!

If you are seeking genral information to prepare for a debate it is best to post a forum topic rather than start a debate. Since you make no case, the opponent wind sby simply denying the resolution. You don't get any info that way.

You really shouldn't do a one-round debate, especially if your opening statement is that short. You really have no way to win.
