The laws of nature are not universal because science cannot experiment the universe.



This video is nonsensical and that too the theory of sivashanmugam

I acknowledge your debate, and my resolve is that the laws of 'nature', or 'being' is universal. I will not post my arguments on this round. I will however use it to condition the debate.

- Nature will be defined as the entire universe, and that of its phenomena. [1]
- You will not further post non-sensical videos. I, the contender will not watch them either.
- I do not know what your theory of Sivashanmugam is.
- Science is defined as the systemetic collection and analysis of the observations of material and physical world. [2]

The resolve is that the laws of nature are universal, and I'm the pro.

I don't know why you forfeited the round. But, as defined above
- Nature will be defined as the entire universe, and that of its phenomena. [1]


In other words, the laws of nature are the laws of the universe. Universal means within the universe, through out the universe, and so on. Universe's laws are universe's laws. You cannot change the fact that it is the universe's laws.

I cannot fathom universe's laws not being universal. By definition, universe's laws must be universal.

Of course, this has nothing to do with the theory of yours.

He continually raises the same debate and always repeats the same behavior.

Reasons for voting decision: Lack of any attempt of refutation by Con means arguments automatically go to Pro. Con also loses conduct for not only the multiple forfeits but for the nonsensical video posted in R1.
