Perussi

Pro

I really don't need to say anything here.

1st round is acceptance. No new arguments or points in round 4 or 5 but are reserved for refutations and defense. Violating this forfeits conduct.
Edlvsjd

Con

I accept, with the terms being that BOP is on pro, and that sphere's definition is the mainstream scientific view of earth: an oblate spheroid that is 25,000 miles in circumference.

You're the one defending it, put it in your arguments.

If you are going to use it go exact. It doesn't make it any harder to work with.

Agreed, it was a rounding estimate.

24,901 is the supposed circumference.

It is so we both get 4 rounds to speak and not one 4 and one 5.

Just say "i accept" being customary for an acceptance round.
