Debate Round No. 1

Scientists said that the world was going to end in 2000 and many other times before that. Yet,we are still here! Now they are saying it will end just because the yan calendar stops on December 21 2012 does not mean that the world will end. It's jut not true. If the world were going to end anyways, it would end when the presidential election results came out. But I don't believe it will end in December. If God wanted it to, he would have gotten it done already

You cannot know what God wants for sure because you are not God.

How can you say that because the world hadn't ended yet it won't end this year?

Pretend someone told you yo were gonna die on January 6 2009. Would you be anticipating it waiting for it to happen? I would. January 6 2009 comes, you aren't dead. You go back to that person and say "Look at me I'm fine. I'm not dead." That person goes "Oh, I got it wrong you are gonna die November 2 2011" You wold probably be anticipating that too right? I would. And this keeps happening a few more times. You are dumb enough to keep believing her. And the final time it happens she says you are going to die October 30 1012. Ho would you react? Are you finally smart enough to see she's lying, or are you going to fall for it again?

December 21 2012 was the Aztec date of end of the world, all other predetermined end of the world date's were not by Aztecs. Your example raised was one of the same individual lying repeatedly, this is a totally different source telling you another date.

You cannot tell God's will if you aren't even God so that point was irrelevant (I am reinstating this to show how you never met your BOP)

I'd like to point out a flaw in error, the Aztec did not anticipate that the world would end in the year 2012 and just in case you meant the Mayan, neither did they. They went based off of the constellation for the calendars that they have created. This is the last year off the Pisces, even though the Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012, it doesn't mean the world will end, it just means we will start the third cycle of calendars and fall into the years of the Aries.

Reasons for voting decision: The Con had his facts hopelessly mixed up, inspiring me to award the Reliable Sources to the Pro, who at least made no grievous errors in fact (unless you count invocation of religion as such). No argument was well carried out, by either party. Both additionally used scrappy spelling and grammar, and the conduct was petty in both cases. Stupid debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's argument was the fallacy of poisoning the well. Con didn't prove the world would end in 2012, yet Pro's arguments were fallacious and invalid.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro wins, because of simply the Con doesn't refute round 2 and 3 arguements, Con however with his God arguement goes toward the Pros side, because people can say want they want, but yet God doesn't tell people in person.
