I challenge Tom1997 to a debate where he will try not to contradict himself. Every round I will ask Pro fifteen questions. Pro must at least provide one sentence to elaborate on his answer. Pro may offer more than one sentence to elaborate however if he wishes.

Rules

1.)If Pro does not answer all of the questions posited by Con every round, Con will automatically win all seven points.

2.)If Pro is unsure of the answer to a question in any round then Con can simply ask an extra question the next round or an extra question for every question which Pro is unable to answer in the previous round.

3.)Con will win all seven points if Pro ever contradicts himself while Pro will win all seven points if Pro is never found to have contradicted himself.

4.)Any questions answered in rounds 1-4 will be subect to scrutiny for contradictions. Nothing from round 5 will be held accountable for contradictions.

5.)Questions will only be asked in rounds 1-4. No new questions may be added in the last round.

I just saw a debate like this and it looked interesting so I thought I would try out a debate like this with my good friend Tom1997. Now on to my questions for the first round.

1.)Are you an anarchist?
2.)Do you believe in Allah?
3.)Are you a boy?
4.)Do you think some girls are attractive?
5.)Are you attracted to Brad Pitt?(Before you answer please refer to my first, second, and third source)[1][2][3]
6.)Have you ever been married?
7.)Is one hundred dollars better than nothing?
8.)What is the square root of 4?
9.)Are Jews people?
10.)Are black people people?
11.)Is nothing better than eternal happiness?
12.)How many debates have you won?
13.)Did you win our last debate?
14.)Have you ever seen 'Star Wars-A New Hope'?
15.)Did you like it more than the 'Star Wars-The Empire Strikes Back'?

That will be all for this round. I pass on the debate to my opponent now.

Debate Round No. 2

It seem as though my opponent has apprently contradicted himself.

In R1, question 7 asked "Is one hundred dollars better than nothing?". Tom1997 responded with "Yes".
Also in R1, question 11 asked "Is nothing better than eternal happiness?". Tom1997 responded with "Yes".

Also in R1, 'nothing' was defined as "the first definition from[4]". When looking at source [4], 'nothing' is defined as "no thing; not anything". So if my opponent believes that one hundred dollars is better than nothing and nothing is better than eternal happiness, then my opponent would also logically believe that one hundred dollars would be better than eternal happiness. This however was not the case when I asked my opponent in R2.

11.)Is 100 dollars better than eternal happiness?

My opponent's answer, "No". However this is contradicting because if 100 dollars is not better than eternal happiness then either eternal happiness is better than nothing or nothing is better than 100 hundred dollars. My opponent answered otherwise for both of these questions, therefore his answers are contradictory and I win the debate.

Even as my opponent has already contradicted himself, I will post my necessary 15 questions in this round, to see if I can get my opponent to contradict himself again.

1.)Do you think that the American TV show 'American Dad' is better than the American TV show 'Family Guy'?
2.)Have you ever meditated?
3.)Was Kate Beckinsale in 'Underworld'?
4.)When was the last time you visited the library?
5.)What color is your hair?
6.)If I weighed 120 lbs. and you weighed 135 lbs., which of us would weigh more?
7.)What is 'Goo Lagoon' made out of on Spongebob? Aren't they already under water?
8.)If all Nazis are white guys and all white guys masturbate, do all Nazis masturbate?
9.)What is your favorite band out of the options provided in my first five sources?[1][2][3][4][5]
10.)Who do you think is more attractive, Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie?[6][7]
11.)Do you have a German stepbrother named Benjamin?
12.)Are you afraid of sticks flying towards your head at ridiculous speeds?
13.)What is 90 divided by 10?
14.)Who do you think is more attractive, Jake Gyllenhaal or Maggie Gyllenhaal?[8][9]
15.)Was your answer to number nine, Slipknot?

My opponent has not responded to any of my questions and thus besides his contradiction from the last round my opponent loses all points and I win this debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Truly lame. Con's claim of contradiction was false, because it depended upon different definitions of the word "nothing." That's not a contradiction. Pro should have persisted, he could have won.
