Con

My opponent makes a very weak argument and although most chimpanzees are certainly stronger than humans, he doesn't take into account that the definition of a fully grown Chimpanzee and a baby Chimpanzee have no distinction, Therefore it is highly possible that A human is able to beat a Chimpanzee in a hand fight if it is not yet reached adulthood, and on the other side of the spectrum the Chimpanzee could very well be to old and aged where it is unable to fight and beat a fully grown human weighing 400lbs and is expertly trained is mixed martial arts and is able to offer a Chimpanzee an extremely difficult hand to hand combat fight.

Therefore my opponents resolution has been negated and he has not fulfilled his burden of proof.

Extend all arguments

If

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don"t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don"t give way to hating,
And yet don"t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream"and not make dreams your master;
If you can think"and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you"ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build "em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings"nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds" worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that"s in it,
And"which is more"you"ll be a Man, my son!

This can be an easy win for CON if he argues it right, not going to elaborate and poison the debate though.Good luck to both contestants :)

You need to post your case in the argument due section, try to make it as challenging as possible.

Good Luck

Reasons for voting decision: An unfortunate waste of Con's time. Conduct for the forfeits, arguments as con was the only one to present one, S & G as what vertu little pro posted was full of errors. As to sources, technically con could have used more. But he obviouslydid better than pro, and the Kipling quote was cool. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
