In this debate there is not really any pro and con, but rather two different opinions being contended

Just quickly, here are a couple of definitions:
life is defined as to do with living things and their activities while meanng is the purpose of something, in this case.
Life has no meaning as such other than to contuinue the species by means of reproduction. There is no greater meaning that we all must do, like finding our spirituality and sudden epiphonies and all that.
But I ask my oponent, what do you think?

As a roadmap, I'll be going burdens then NC/AC

Given the fact that we are discussing our ideas of life and the purpose therein and the AC has first provided his scope, my created burden to win is upholding my advocacy or given our shared in round burdens simply dropping my opponent's advocacy.

This leads me to my contestation; life's purpose is something other than (sexual) procreation.

First apply the evidence (here enclosed: http://saa-recovery.org...) this discusses the fact that life is more than sex and reproduction. This drops my opponent's representation of meaning of life and has warrant (unlike his which lacks any warrant or merit)

Now apply the detriments of my opponent's ad.

First minor impacts: sex leads to falling behind between genders.
(Warranted here: http://www.slate.com...)

Next major impacts: Reproduction as a goal along with my opponent's idealization of reproduction will end our world.
(Warranted here: http://www.economicexpert.com...
http://en.wikipedia.org...
http://www.peak-oil-technology.com...
http://neohumanism.org... more warrants can be provided if necessary.)

Look at the Malthusian Catastrophe and see that as such my opponent's claims can't be right and as such, the NC has met its burden and wins.

So you can disregard my opponent's advocacy and look at my broad advocacy, especially considering my opponent's supposed meaning of life will end life and as such can be voted down on the fact it has no warrant has detriments and neg solves for apocalypse and has warrant.

Thus, I urge a con vote.

Someone should argue that the meaning of life is hamburgers.
