Con

My opponent has the burden of proof, he must prove that he is my God. I will let the affirmative go first, but I have one simple question. Are you Manny Ramirez?
studentathletechristian8

Pro

I affirm the resolution, "You are my god."

Quick clarifications:

you - studentathletechristian8
http://www.debate.org...

my - refers to me - logicalmaster17
http://www.debate.org...

god - any deified person or object.

I have several questions for my opponent:

1) Is Manny Ramirez your god?

2) If not, do you even have a god?

3) How can you prove that I am not your god?

I hope my opponent answers these questions. I await the following rounds.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

1) Yes he is my God

2) Already answered

3)I can do this because you are not Manny Ramirez, and he is my God.

Here is Manny: http://en.wikipedia.org...

And here is you: http://www.debate.org...
Note how your name is Uncle Sam, that is clearly not Manny Ramirez, also you state your white, while Manny is black. And you state you are 16 years old, Manny is in his 30's.

Therefore you are clearly not my God.

Pro

To win this debate, I must prove that I am Manny Ramirez, for he is my opponent's god.

Take a gander at my photo album:

http://www.debate.org...

All of these are legitimate pictures of me throughout my baseball career.

Also, take a gander at this:

http://www.debate.org...

The message states, "This is to certify that the images posted by leet4A1 are legitimate."
Then, the Internet Supervisor signs the message, proving that is is from him.

Because the Internet Supervisor is quite busy, he has told me to simply quote the message on leet4A1's profile and state that he has approved it to include my username [studentathletechristian8] as well. Therefore, all of the pictures on my profile are legit.

I have lied about my name, ethnicity, and age on my profile. I never wanted to truly reveal myself, for I would get quite hassled. I now let down my guard and have shown myself to be Manny Ramirez. Thanks.

Con

My opponent gives pictures of Manny Ramirez, and he says that he is him. But there are a few problems with this. Firstly the pictures he took were from google images, and all of them are on the front page. Therefore my opponent just hand selected some pictures. And he says later he did not want to be hassled, and he would if he said he was Manny. This is not true, there are many people on DDO that put famous people's names. For instance, I claim that I am Phil Ivy, he is very famous, and no one has talked to me, so this is false. Also it should be seen that my opponent is a liar, he lied about his profile information, therefore he is lying about being Manny Ramirez. He also has no proof that the internet supervisor said he was legit. Lets give some pictures of my opponent: http://galearning.com....

The internet supervisor is quite busy, and he approved this for me as well.

I did not just hand select the pictures. I took them from the front page of google images so people would be familiar with them. I don't want to give personal shots (like if I'm at home or the club) because people could make money off the previously unseen pictures.

I don't want to be hassled by people on this website, which disproves your point.

I lied about my information so that people wouldn't annoy me with messages that asked for my autograph or something. I am Manny Ramirez, I gave pics and unrefutable proof with leet's message.

The internet supervisor does not want to give me special treatment for being a celebrity. So, he simply told me to attach leet's pic to this debate and acknowledge that it was legitimate for my purposes as well. My opponent cannot see who I am, so there is a possibility I am Manny, which I am! Thanks for setting up an almost impossible burden, logicalmaster17, but I have successfully affirmed the resolution. I urge a Pro vote. Thank you.

logicalmaster17, is this a joke?

I don't understand your reasoning, logicalmaster17. I have better grammar/spelling than you, and we had about the same mutual conduct in this debate. (To be fair.) You did not win the sources vote, and you did not completely prove that I am not Manny Ramirez. You essentially created an almost impossible debate, thus also pulling the conduct point to the negative.

Simply choose to edit the debate and correctly word the resolution.

I noticed the error, but did not want to win based off of semantics. I was just going to send you a PM ;)

Would you like to change it before I accept the debate?

You may want to clarify if Manny Ramirez is your god.
