When not setting a goal for your life you have no destination
RESEARCHisbest

Con

Both the presentation and rebuttal

"When not setting a goal for your life you have no destination"

Sure. If there is nothing you seek to achieve, then your life is, in a manner, meaningless. However, that doesn't mean that you aren't alive, which is the resolution you affirm! Meaninglessness doesn't imply non-existence! Say, there is a box that doesn't contain anything. I fill it with brittle candy simply because I wanted to. Just because there was no purpose of placing them there, doesn't mean it still doesn't contain anything!

I await my opponent's next set of arguments.

I forgot the fact that we have little time to argue. :/ I recommend changing that.

Whether setting life goals are important. If you don't have a dream, what do you live for?
