 Pro Whatever I post here can be rebutted immediately and I will not be able to respond. If I have more votes at the end of the voting period, then I have lost because I was wrong about being able to win a one round debate.Report this Argument Con "Whatever I post here can be rebutted immediately and I will not be able to respond." -Yes, this is true. Your arguments have a chance of being rebutted. And since this is a one round debate, it is pretty obvious you will not be able to respond. "If I have more votes at the end of the voting period, then I have lost because I was wrong about being able to win a one round debate." -No, if you win this debate (by votes), it is because you have made the better argument. If you lose (by votes), this does not prove that all losers of one round debates are instigators, it only proves that the loser of this debate if the instigator. The resolution is "The instigator can not win a one round debate", I am con. To win I have to prove that "the instigator can win a one round debate." This is pretty simple to me. In a debate there must be a winner and a loser. The instigator has the same odds of winning as the contender (50-50) no matter how many rounds the debate is. The same goes in this debate; my opponent (the instigator) has the same chance of winning as me (the contender). Resolution negated. Vote Con.Report this Argument

can not = 100%

How does a 50-50 argument not work?
Posted by mongeese 7 years ago
CON's 50-50 argument was completely unconvincing.

What a disappointment of a voting result.

I concur. Vote Con, as I can not stand winning (or losing depending on how you look at it) 45-44 either.

-Bingo.
