Water is not wet. Water itself cannot be wet but something that is not water or another liquid can be wet because there is water on it.


Of couse water is wet. If it wasn't wet it wouldn't be able to get other things wet. Water is wet because water is surrounded by other water molecules, right? The molecules are touching, so water would then be wet, the water molecules are getting each other wet. If you are underwater, you are wet. The water is touching you, your skin has been saturated with water. You have water touching you, you can't say that you aren't wet underwater when you literally have water touching you. Wet is used to describe something, not what it does to something. Water also can't make other things wet if it is not wet itself. That's like saying fire can't burn things because it's not burning in of itself (fire is an energy, not a physical thing, I'm just being hypothetical)
Debate Round No. 1


Definition of wet: covered or saturated with water or another liquid.

To say that something is wet means that the wetness can be dried. If I spill water on a table, it becomes wet and can be dried, but can I dry the water inside of a bottle? NO. Humans can get wet, tables can get wet, but can an ocean get wet? If you pour water into the ocean, does it become wetter, you dry up the water that you poured into the ocean.

A fire burns things but does it mean that fire itself is burned? NO. Water can get things wet but does that mean itself is wet? NO. Can water cover itself? NO. therefore it is not wet because the definition is covered with another liquid. According to your logic, if water molecules touch each other, they are considered wet. So the air is wet? Because water molecules in the air are bumping into each other.
