FIGHTTHEPOWER29

Pro

Alright I've seen a lot of these and I think its a good fit for me to get started on DDO ^.^

1st round will just be for acceptance

2nd round both sides will just present a word its definition and how its amusing.

If Con explains why his word is better than Pro then Con loses because Pro cannot refute said arguments.

Good Luck to whoever accepts :D

Con

I accept. State your word.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

My word is:

Zoology- The branch of biology that relates to the animal kingdom, including the structure, embryology, evolution, classification, habits, and distribution of all animals, both living and extinct. [1]

Just because I friggin love animals ! :D

Con

My word is:

prophylaxis: measures designed to preserve health (as of an individual or of society) and prevent the spread of disease[1]

Use in context:

The prophylaxises used after the bioterrorist bombing of anthrax were effective in preventing the spread of the disease further than one block in New York City.

He gave you convincing arguments? Ok. I can understand the conduct point. That was my fault. but why did he give you convincing arguments?

These debates are extremely easy for the contender because you post the word first. That way all he has to do is find a better word. It's like there are two people and the first person has to name the highest number he can think of (besides infinity). The second person will always win. But if you can possibly come up with a great word, you could win the debate, even as the instigator.

You know next time look in the dictionary for a word you've never heard of, and a word most people probably haven't heard of.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct goes to Pro because Con didn't follow the rules presented. Arguments goes to Pro because I feel Zoology is a better word as well as Pro is the only one who gave a justification for his word.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro took the trouble to fill out his profile, so I don't think he's trolling. It's just a dopey debate. The rules require both sides to say how their word is amusing. Pro gave a poor reason while Con gave none. Con loses conduct for not obeying the rule agreed to. BTW, zoology is pronounced zoh-logy. Their is a book entitled "There is no zoo in zoology."

Reasons for voting decision: I like non-troll debaters who accept these debates so they can get them hurried along. So I always give the contender conduct if he/she is not a troll. And especially this guy. TheTrollHater. Clean up the site dude. And personally, I have never heard of con's word so he wins this debate.
