"Gravity" does not exist.

Gravity, first and foremost, is simply a natural phenomenon. A phenomenon is an extraordinary event that can be taken how we, as humans, perceive it. It has been proved that accelerated motion and the idea of being at rest in a "gravitational field" are physically identical. Even in a perfect vacuum, accelerated motion will give the illusion that an object has weight.

While it is not the large presence of Earth itself that is causing the attraction of objects, it is the field of force experienced from the acceleration of earth.

My opponent is very wrong. Gravity is a completely explainable natural happening. Because my opponent is the one presenting this proposterous idea I will allow him the opportunity to give his argument (hopefully his round one wasn't his argument because it was seriously lacking in meritable evidence).

I wish him the best of luck, for he will need.

Con, thank you very much for accepting my challenge.

Only a simple-minded being would consider such an idea proposterous. Sir Isaac Newton himself would not even find this concept hard to believe considering he had to make-up a unit of measure to demonstrate his theory (the fluxion). I see that in your preceding argument that you did not deny any of the facts that I have previously stated.

The theory behind gravity is that smaller objects are attracted to larger objects by a mysterious force. If this were the case, wouldn't a golf ball be attracted to a bowling ball by the same force? The fact is that smaller objects travel through space that is warped by the larger objects, hence bringing the smaller objects towards the larger objects.

As for cold, hard evidence, I believe that does not exist on either side of the argument. If gravity is such an explainable natural happening, will you please explain it?

I will now be addressing ALL of my opponent's statements and providing some scientific proof of my own.

In Round 1 my opponent makes no argument to the issue at hand. He goes to great lengths to redefine the topic of gravity, but actually made no points, thus I didn't attack it because it didn't further his case.

In Round 2 my opponent addresses the fact that Sir Isaac Newton could not explain all of gravity. To this argument I say that while Newton discovered gravity, recent science has been able to purge the study of gravity from all of its anomalies. My opponent also brings up the fact that golf balls don't just fly at bowling balls so the force of gravity doesn't exist there. This is idiotic. Any physicist could tell you that while there is a gravitational force it is negated by the forces of friction with the air and ground or any other surface it touches. My opponent then states that gravity is the warped space that brings smaller objects toward larger objects. This is also wrong. The gravitational field will accelerate both objects toward each other. Not just one. Kristi Adams, a professor with a PHD in both Physics and Education stated, by word of mouth, to me, that gravity exist and is the force that brings objects together in order to fill the gap of lesser density between them. Thus I have provided cold, hard evidence to accurately negate the following 'There is no gravity.' My opponent hasn't provided evidence of the opposite nor has he actually provided an argument to support his case. Thus I am the only logical winner of this debate.

For the necessary equations of proof for his case ask me on the comments page. I will be happy to supply them.

Vote for me because if you don't you are not agreeing with truth.
Thank You all.

"As for cold, hard evidence, I believe that does not exist on either side of the argument."
You have burden of proof...

Can the existence of gravity really be a debate taken seriously? Really, PRO jump up and what happens, you come back down. Now, go to the moon and do the same thing, weird enough, you will not just come back down. Now what is that telling you? It is telling me that there is a force pulling us down here on earth, hence gravity. Case closed

Can something that doesn't exist, exist? "Gravity, first and foremost, is simply a natural phenomenon"???

Conduct: Con
I didn't appreciate being considered a "simple-minded being", especially considering the ridiculousness of the arguments of the person calling me simple minded.

Arguments: Con
Pro negated his resolution with the statement: Gravity, first and foremost, is simply a natural phenomenon.

Sources: Con
Though his source cannot be verified, it can be considered "reliable" in that the information provided by the source is logical and provable.

You never even argued your case. You just sat there spouting facts that actually proved the existence of gravity rather than destroy it.

You have no idea how wrong you are.

I will be taking this one.
