Con

Aliens may or may not exist, but there's one thing we can be sure of:

There is no evidence that aliens exist.

There are no bodies of aliens, no plausible footage of them, no crashed vehicles, no proofs from history.

All UFOs are hoaxes, misidentified air-craft or weather phenomena.

There is more evidence for Bigfoot than aliens, because we have samples of hair, feetprints and stools, along with eye-witness testimony going back thousand of years.

It's all good, Strawberryman. No offense taken. When you're an authority like me on all matters alien, you are so confident of your position, that even when you are wrong, you still feel right.

As to the proof of alien life, or suggestion, I deal with this in the new debate I'm having with Atmas.

Mightbenihilism, I apologize for any offense my previous comment may have caused. Looking back, it seems rude to have assumed you don't have any knowledge on the matter. But - and I may be wrong on this point - while there isn't any definite proof that aliens exist, isn't there some that suggests so? My rash jump to the conclusion that you didn't know about aliens was because your statement went against what I've been told. It hasn't been long since I've been convinced to stop being a skeptic about aliens, and I wish to know more on this topic.
Thank you

Alright, that gives me time to prepare for my loss.
Also, this debate is likely pro's attempt at speeding through the 3 complete debates milestone. I think there should be a minimum word limit so ridiculous ones like this happen less.

Atmas, I need to get a few more debates wrapped up and we'll have the alien debate.

@mightbenehilism.
lmao, Mr authority huh?
Would you accept a challenge from me with this topic? I promise to do my best ;)
I know there's no evidence, so you'd likely win, but I think it would be fun.

Strawberryman, I totally understand and sympathize with the wish to believe aliens exist. We don't want to be alone in the universe, and we want to catch a glimpse of something more. It goes to the very root of our need to survive, I think, because if aliens can become a galactic species, perhaps humans can to.

But the cold reality is that there are no aliens --- at least, none in contact with us, and no evidence of any galactic civilizations. This isn't based on my assumption --- this is the result of 29 years of deep investigation into the matter. I am an authority on all matters extra-terrestrial, and I can assure you that there is no evidence of alien contact on earth.

Since the instigator is attempting to prove aliens exist, he or she should've given the con something to prove wrong. The con, on the other hand, neglected to search for even the most simple possible points for the pro side and instead stated that "There is no evidence that aliens exist". As for my opinion, it is my strong belief that aliens do exist (somewhere in the universe if not near us), have visited us, and will continue to do so. I believe this for a variety of reasons, and I think it's very rude of people to assume there are no legitimate reasons for people like me to think this.

Lmao, there's more of a possibility of aliens existing than anything else that hasn't been proven, but there isn't any definitive proof except for statistics. It's even more likely that aliens will be similar to earth life rather than be drastically different, which is also due to statistics. So by combining those two, we can conclude that it is extremely probable that a big foot like creature exists somewhere in our galaxy, if not on earth.

Reasons for voting decision: As usual with debates of this kind, Pro made no arguments; he only asserted that aliens exist. Con on the other hand did not deny that aliens may exist, but made clear that there is no strong evidence in support of that proposition. Since the burden of proof was on Pro, Con wins the debate. No sources were used on either side.
