Mizuryuu

Pro

The universe is not infinite nor is it expanding. My arguments will be stated after the rules.
Rules:
Round 1 will be for acceptance and the statement of my argument and the rebuttals of my opponent. Rounds 2 and 3 will be a continuation of claims and counterclaims along with evidence. Round 4 will be for the conclusions of my opponent and me.
Con will take the position of the Metric Expansion of Space and Accelerating Universe theories and will argue that the universe is infinite and expanding.

I argue that the expansion of the universe is nothing but an illusion, and that the universe is actually a finite four dimensional hypersphere held together in the macroscopic scale by Dark Energy and exists in a fifth dimensional hyperspheric multiverse.

I accept your debate, the claims that you have made need to be backed up.

"That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence." Christopher Hitchens.
The burden of proof lies with the one who makes the assertion.

I propse that the universe IS expanding. Since he has proposed otherwise, without showing evidence, all i need to do to refute his statement is suggest the opposite side.

i am aware, i am asserting that the current scientific methodology is correct, but you have to first explain why you have concluded the way you did. only then, in my defence will i show evidence for my side...

"Round 1 will be for acceptance and the statement of my argument and the rebuttals of my opponent."

i was just making it very clear.

Kryptic - You haven't made a case for your side of the argument, which was stated in the rules of acceptance. "Con will take the position of the Metric Expansion of Space and Accelerating Universe theories and will argue that the universe is infinite and expanding." Burden of proof is understodd, but you also have burden to prove that your theory is correct.
