First and foremost, this is not a serious debate. If you are not willing to stoop to my level, you are not wanted here.

First round is for acceptance, the rest are fair game.

I am arguing that John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald were guided and directed in their assassinations by the same secret group/organization, whether or not they were aware of this. The Con will be arguing that they were not.

Good luck.


Alright i will bite, I highly doubt there is a secret society that both Oswald and Booth worked for. Goodluck

Ok, thank you for accepting this debate.

Firstly, I would like to clarify that the assassins did not necessarily work for the organization, only that they were influenced.

Here is my evidence.

Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.
Lincoln was elected President in 1860. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.
Both Presidents have 7 letters in their name.
Both Presidents were concerned with Civil Rights.
Both Presidents wives were 24 when they married.
Both Presidents lost children while in the Capitol.
Both Presidents were shot in the head on a Friday.
Kennedy's secretary, Evelyn LINCOLN, warned him not to go to Dallas.
Lincoln's secretary, John KENNEDY, warned him not to go to the theater.
Newspapers revealed valuable information about the Presidents' location to the assassins.
Henry Rathbone and John Connally, the men with the presidents at the time they were shot, were both seriously injured but not killed.
The names Rathbone and Connaly both contain 8 letters.
Both Vice-Presidents that became President were named Johnson.
The names Andrew Johnson and Lyndon Johnson contain 13 letters.
Andrew Johnson was born in 1808; Jackson was born in 1908.
Both were southern democrats and former Senators.
The names John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald both contain 15 letters.
Booth was born in 1839; Oswald was born in 1939.
Both assassins favored unpopular causes, slavery and communism.
Booth shot Lincoln in a theater and was caught in a warehouse.
Oswald shot Kennedy from a warehouse and was caught in a theater.
Lincoln was shot in a theater built by Ford. Kennedy was shot in a car built by Ford.
Kennedy was shot in a Lincoln.
Both assassins were killed before trial.
One week before his death, Lincoln was visiting Monroe, Maryland.
One week before his death, Kennedy was "visiting" Marilyn Monroe.

This is clearly irrefutable evidence that there is a conspiracy here, therefore there must be some group behind it pulling the strings. Every 100 years they kill a president. I fear for the man elected president in 1960.

Well, unless Con comes back with a very good argument, I guess I win.


None of what you said is empirical evidence that any organization links John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald. Nor that they have been influenced by any. We as human beings like to construct patterns out of meaningless data. All you have found is a series of similarities between the two assassinations many of which are not that improbable. Some just plain do not make sense. Thus I urge you to vote Con as there is no evidence for another unfounded conspiracy theory like this.
