Well Just so you know this debate is inarguable. History is defined the study of past events.
http://www.merriam-webster.com...
So theoretically If we don't study the past we will not invent anything. Since we won't know what we already invented.Also the past is a key word there. that means if we don't have history we don't have time, so we can't do anything. Now if stopping time seems interesting to you enough to argue about, we can do that in the next rounds.

No offense man, but some serious illogical fallicies there,




first off, you said,

"without history we cant invent anything"

Then what about the first time something was ever invented, like a club. The maker didnt know history, but made it anyway.


Also you stated,

"that without the past nothing can exist"

This is also of course false, as the universe must have been created. Therefore, you do not need history to survive

_____________________________________________________________________________

There have been many cultures, isolated, that invented stuff themselvs without out reading about history.
Therefor, because you have burden of proof, you must put out more reasons why, because these to are refuted.

GOOD LUCK :D

Though creating the universe is the past, so if the past didn't exist nothing would. We (humanity) can't move on without history.

Then, how did the universe come to exist??? if there was no past before then??


Let me now show you, the audience why to vote con.


My opponent has the burden of proof, and only put out 2 points.i have refuted both.


He says "without history we cant invent anything"

Then what about the first invention?????


He says "without the past, nothing can exist"

Yet, when the universe was created, through god, or the big bang, there was no past, but it came to exist. We dont need the past.


There will ALWAYS be a first, therefore, we dont need history, even if it helps

_________________________________________________________________________________________


So i ask you 1 question...

Did the PRO convince you without a shadow of a doubt, that we need history, i belive no, as i have refuted his only 2 points, therefore VOTE CON!!! :D

To add on before the big bang the past didn't exist i agree though the big bang created everything INCLUDING the past.

Also if we didn't have the history of inventing the first invention we would have just invented it over and over and over.
