Pro

The world is triangular in shape, because I say so.
Zarroette

Con

My opponent's singular argument is an appeal to authority, in that my opponent says because he/she said something is true, therefore it must be true. This argument does not affirm the resolution due to it being a logical fallacy [1]. Since this is my opponent's singular argument, and it fails to fulfill the BoP, Con claims victory by default.

Thank you.

I agree that the world is triangular; for those green triangles from quality street can prove it. They are green and triangular and earth is green, meaning that it must also be triangular.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro has an unfulfilled BOP. Con's argument disproves the resolution by demonstrating that it is an illogical fallacy to make this claim - especially without evidence. Con had sources to back up this critical argument and therefore Con is awarded both sources and arguments as a result.
