I will be willing to argue against the sky being blue. Since we all know that the sky is in fact blue, this should be a simple debate, however, I will still be willing to debate it.

Rule:

Do not try the "because everybody agrees on it, its true fallacy".

This obviously is for fun.

I concur to your terms. Go!

I say reason that the sky is not blue. Blue is simply a label. If a person has been blind all his life he cannot have an idea of what color the sky is, therefore, to him the sky is not blue because blue does not exist.

I propose that the sky is not blue because there is no evidence to support it. In fact, the sky is black. The only reason the sky appears to be blue is because the light of the sun engulfs our atmosphere.

Good luck Pro.

Con--I say reason that the sky is not blue. Blue is simply a label. If a person has been blind all his life he cannot have an idea of what color the sky is, therefore, to him the sky is not blue because blue does not exist.

I LOL'd I come back to this with this arguement for the last one.

--I propose that the sky is not blue because there is no evidence to support it.
Sky is blue for the Asians. Call a asian and tell him/her to go outside and look up and say "What is the color of the sky?"
--In fact, the sky is black.
But black to blind people doesnt exist.
--The only reason the sky appears to be blue is because the light of the sun engulfs our atmosphere.
But then why isnt the sky white?

What is white? I suggest that the color white, too, is a label.

Tell me:

Why is the sky blue?
CAPLlock

Pro

The sky is blue because god made it that way.

Interesting response. How did He do that? Why did He do it? (I do believe in God) but I want to challenge you.

As you can see, my opponent has failed to produce evidence in his favor. Even with a topic as simple as the sky being blue, my opponent cannot produce an argument. Therefore, if my opponent cannot produce a logical argument as to why the sky is blue, I win.

Pro

But you had the BOP you didnt prove it otherwise.

Tell you what, Liquidus, I'll try to avoid commenting and voting on your debates if you'll do the same for mine.

I've already blocked you from accepting my open debate challenges. Please do the same for me so that I can't forget and accidentally accept one of your debates.
