I accept your debate and wish you luck (Btw if you feel like changing the rules about the 5 mins thing than state in your next round as to be informative videos often need to be longer than 5).

owen99999, you're still not getting it. The debate is in the voting period. You are not supposed to use any of your own material to sway the voter. No comments, no remarks like:"You'll like the second video"....no text. The debate is over. You blatantly disregarded the rules. I don't care who wins or looses and I don't much care for your "banana video" remarks. I know creationists present a lot of garbage. THAT's not the point. You're giving me a nosebleed with your banality. Just let it go. You utterly failed to see the point and you pretty much ruined a fun attempt at something new. Go troll somewhere else.

I understand it was just a kindof experiment and I totally respect that but I only started using text AFTER the debate finished thus rendering my actions within the rules. All I was saying is, if you ever do this again, make the time limit longer because in general creationist videos tend to be 'oh look a banana perfectly fits a human hand!' but evolution videos aren't just 'what about a pineapple?!' they tend to have more substance in them. If I get time I'll post a couple of useful videos on here about evolution and the big bang that you can watch and if you're an open minded person; I'm sure they'll substancially change your viewpoint.

owen99999, you've read the rules, right? No comment section access, no text arguments. This was to be purely based on videos.
This debate was not about winning or losing, it was an experiment....a novelty debate. Nothing more. I would have appreciated your full cooperation. This is rather disappointing. Posting arguments in the comment section is also quite weak. I purposely picked a topic that has an impossible burden of proof. I wasn't looking for evidence, I wanted to test a different medium. Obviously, I could make a plethora of arguments that you can't find on youtube. I don't know...I guess if the judges want to judge the substance of your arguments, they can include the below videos. It doesn't really matter. The debate was botched when you started using text.

Please read the rules next time.

Sorry I didn't make the last round. I've had a stressful week! None the less I think my videos stand for themselves and tbh mate if you do this again you need to make the time limit longer. Videos explaining the big bang and evolution need more time than some religious video. The content is more complicated.

owen99999, You're not doing the debate justice if you're gonna accept with that kind of additude. I'd like to see someone who actually wants to try this in the spirit of "fun" challenge him. I'd do it, but I don't want to be biased. I agree with Pro's stance.

How is it a terrible debate? It clearly an experiment and it's clearly for fun. I also don't think Pro is at an advantage. I bet Pro will lose, just because most people will not actually watch every video....and judge on simple bias.

Also, both sides are accepting the burden of proof, since a video cannot directly refute another video. (Well, its very improbable.)

Don't take it so serious. If Pro was worried about his win percentage, I doubt he would have sponsored this debate.

@Stephen Hawkins

I agree with you but I'm going to accept it anyway though I'm sure it wont be long before I'm punching my screen with frustration unable to explain why his video is a load of rubbish.

Terrible debate, I guarantee the videos by PRO will be gish galloping on so many claims CON cannot refute...debating is a poor format for entertaining these views.
