Pro

First round is acceptance.
Second round is laying out arguments. Third and fourth rounds are for rebuttals and rebuttals of rebuttals. Fifth round is summary of arguments.

For the purposes of this debate, definitions are as follows:

absolute:
viewed independently; not comparative or relative; ultimate; intrinsic.

relative:
existing or having its specific nature only by relation to something else (in the context of this debate, to a person); not absolute or independent

Again, first round is acceptance.

Con

I accept this debate. Also, note that the time limit is 24 hours; a full day. I hope the Instigator is ready to create their argument.

But first, we need to define "truth", since it's crucial to understanding the resolution.

According to dictionary.com, one definition is "conformity with fact or reality; verity".

I'll let Pro expand on his case. In the 2nd round (assuming Pro hasn'r already left), I will show that Truth isn't always absolute. With that, let's hear their argument.

Truth can change. For example, saying "vi_spex has a panda as a profile picture" is currently true. But he may change it, as he's done in the past.

Yes. I will be off line the next 5 days. It will be a relative absolute truth as long as it happens...

No .That would make it a relative truth.

truth can only be in the past

What happens "now" is absolute truth. "happen" is a relative of anything. But as it happens it can only be absolute truth, or it would not have Happend.
