Mulan

Pro

ur calculator can't prove that and its just your belief that math is real. you cant prove that it exists.
Wylted

Con

ur calculator can't prove that and its just your belief that math is real. you cant prove that it exists, and if math isn't real than 2+2 equaling 5 is just as untrue as it equaling 4.
Debate Round No. 2
Mulan

Pro

you cannot prove why math is real and 5 does n ot equal 2+2 BUT 2+2 = 5 and that is why math is not real but it doesnt matter.
Wylted

Con

you cannot prove why math is real and 4 does n ot equal 2+2 BUT 2+2 = 4 and that is why math is not real but it doesnt matter.

And if math is not real as me and my opponent both agree to, she has failed to meet her BOP that 2+2=5

>Reported vote: Sarah314// Mod action: Removed<

4 points to Con (Conduct, Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: I can't believe I'm even voting on this, but pro is obviously incorrect and doesn't make any sense.

[*Reason for removal*] The voter does actually have to explain why, given what was said in the debate, they are voting for Con. This RFD simply states the obviousness of the decision without explaining why beyond stating that one side's argument "doesn't make any sense." This is too generalized an assessment of the debate to be sufficient. The voter also does not explain conduct.

Reasons for voting decision: This seems to be a troll debate, so it shouldn't be moderated. I award arguments and sources to Con because I checked my cellphone calculator, and it confirmed the Con position.
