 Pro 2 + 2 = 4 Opponent, prove me that 2 + 2 is NOT equal to four. Also, please try to surprise me. :)Report this Argument Con My opponent states that I must prove 2 + 2 is not equal to 4; thus, I must give one instance or scenario in which two plus 2 + 2 is not equal to 4. However, my opponent has not specified what "2" is. Is it 2 airplanes? How about 2 bombs? Perhaps it is 2 fruits. Since he has not specified what "2" is, it is my job to do so. Since I have to give at least one scenario where 2 + does not equal 4, then I will use the following scenario to prove my point; 2 hydrogen atoms + 2 oxygen atoms = 1 hydrogen peroxide compound [1]. In the first chart, you will notice that it says the molecular formula for the compound, "hydrogen peroxide" is H202. The number "2" after the letter "H" signifies that there are 2 hydrogen atoms. Likewise, then number "2" after the letter "O" signifies that there are 2 oxygen atoms; therefore, 2 hydrogen atoms + 2 oxygen atoms = 1 hydrogen peroxide compound. In conclusion, I have shown that 2 hydrogen atoms + 2 oxygen atoms = 1 hydrogen peroxide and does not equal 4 as my opponent seemed to believe.Thank you.

It's pretty hard to see it without any visual aid. I'll have to concur with PeacefulChaos once again and have to see it in person.

Or it can equal 22. if you rearange the lines in both 2's you can make a 77.
Posted by PeacefulChaos 6 years ago
I'll show you in person.

Ah, that makes sense, but I'm seeing a heart instead? How do you face it down if it's facing sideways?
Posted by PeacefulChaos 6 years ago
If you turn both 2's side ways (with one upright and the other facing down) and place them on top of each other, it forms a fish.
Posted by Multi_Pyrocytophage 6 years ago
How does it equal fish...?
Posted by PeacefulChaos 6 years ago
The only problem is that it doesn't.
Posted by renji_abarai 6 years ago
you could have said it equals fish ^_^
