I will wait to post my first arguement after my opponent has accepted the debate.
AznWords

Con

I accept this debate. I will agrue, as Con, that the letter C should not be abolished. I urge Pro to provide a clear definition of "the letter C". I also suggest that Pro should have the burden of proof in this debate since he is opting for a change.

This is my first debate on this website. I hope we both have fun and this turns out to be an excellent debate.

joeecc412 forfeited this round.

Con

Since my opponent has forfeited this round I will take the liberty of posting definitions:
http://dictionary.reference.com...:
1. the third letter of the English alphabet, a consonant.
2. any spoken sound represented by the letter C or c, as in cat, race, or circle.

Arguments: Even though the letter C in some cases may not be quintessential to the English Language the prohibition or act of abolishing of the letter C would be a completely unnecessary set back for the English speaking world. I will assume the resolution means prohibition across the world. The international community would have to expect the world to give up the letter C by decree. This is absurd. So must work, time and money would be lost to simply get rid of a questionably inefficient letter. Keep in mind my opponent has the BOF so my argument is merely supplementary and I win this debate by default unless he/she posts a sound argument I cannot refute.

Thanks to my opponent again for the debate.

"Imagine trying to pronounce "Chrysippus" without the C!"

Every English instance of C is either pronounced as a K or an S. It's an ambiguous consonant that can and should be eliminated.

I persoqnally thqink we should gqet rid of all the siqlent "q"s in the middle of our wqords. They're silly and obnoqxious.

It's a personal insult, is what it is. Imagine trying to pronounce "Chrysippus" without the C!

"Hrysippus"?

This censoring of the letter C, is the work of the atheist elite, trying to get God out of the public sphere, an ongoing culture war by the the lefty, terrorist loving, God hating, sin depraved, homosexual enablers.

Without the letter C, you can't spell creation, and without creation there is no creator.

Teach the controversy !!!

Glen Beck for president !!!
