Pro

I don't even need to go in detail about this one. If you look outside and look up into the sky, you will see what I mean. There is no possible way that the sky could be any other color than blue (except maybe at night when it is dark outside or white if you count the clouds).

Con

It depends on what you mean by 'is'. Blue is the color that is reflected. The sky could be accurately called all colors BUT blue.

Then again at sunset it could be many colors. Or if one looks up and its over cast in a city, the same.

It is rather hard to tell whether the 'sky' is absorbing or reflecting blue. Meaning you can't really tell its real "color", if any.

At night, the sky is transparent because there is barely any light being reflected from it.

Are you kidding me? In what way would Pro expect to win this?

This is retarded...

The sky isn't blue. The sky is without color. It appears blue, b/c of the reflection of light.

Con somewhat argued this (Smart!), but tried to be iconoclastic by arguing relativity (Dumb).

No one won this round. Con just lost it less.
