Unicorn feces is infused with magic for maximum health and well being.

Also, most Unicorns are Native American, so you will also gain the strength of the Buffalo.

Con

Without any evidence, pro is making assumptions to justify their side of the resolution. If we use Occam's razor, we find that the side utilising the least amount of assumptions overall should be preferred over the one that is making more - in this case it should be con being preferred over con [1].

My side of the resolution is simply as such-
1. Unicorns nor their excrement do not exist
2. Things that do not exist cannot be good nor bad for you.
3. Unicorn feces is not good for you (neither is it bad for you).

I justify 1 using Occam's raisor - it is more logical to assume that unicorns do not exist over the position that they do. I justify 2 by using simple logic - I cannot say if a purple fruit fly from Mars's excrement is good for you or not, because we have both not been able to study it, and because having effects attributed to it (good for you, bad for you, will increase lifetime, etc) are all based around its very existence.

Vote con due to the nature of the assumptions being made on pro's behalf without evidence, and because I have proven that unicorn feces is not good for you, which negates the resolution (having the position that it is neither good nor bad does in fact negate the resolution - I do not need to prove that it is bad for you, just that it is not good)

Reasons for voting decision: This isn't a vote bomb. Conduct goes to Con due to the fact that Pro swears in the first round. Spelling and grammar also goes to Con because Pro misspells his swear. Pro provided very weak arguments that were all refuted by Con. Pro then essentially concedes in the final round by not providing any arguments and going off topic. Con also receives the sources points due to the fact that Pro did not use sources and Con successfully incorporated them into their argument and used this to refute Pro's case. Overall, the winner of this debate is evident so all points go to Con.
