Debate Rounds (3)
Pro has not presented any arguments to defend or clarify his position and loses by default
Pro's position is not clear and false without further explanation.
Control - the power to influence or direct people's behavior or the course of events.
Equals - a person or thing considered to be the same as another in status
Pro is equating control with direction + timing, which is clearly false. While direction is important in some types of control, such as controlling a remote drone, it is often completely irrelevant to many types of control. Direction has nothing to do with controlling your mind. While timing is often important to control, they are in no way equivalent.
Timing and direction are often involved with the act of controlling but they are now way equivalent. Pro appears to be confusing a loose relation with an equivalency or an identity.
Pro's frog example
In an attempt to elaborate on the resolution Pro uses an example of a frog catching a fly. The same issues are there. While timing and direction are important in a frog's control of a flys fate they are not in any way equivalent to control but only involved in its execution.
The fact remains that timing and directions are not even related to other types of control. Timing is not highly related to preparing for an exam other than the final date of examination. Direction is not relevant when controlling your appetite. Pro appears to be confusing the general process with strategies to accomplish the process.
Control is a general term describing a process that applies to many different situations. Direction and timing are important in specific situations of control but aspects of control are in no way equivalent to control itself.
Pro has not made any argument to support his resolution and so it fails. Pro's resolution is unclear. The most literal explanation for Pro's resolution is obviously false.
you can assert whatever you like, and to me it will always just be a moon made of cheese
Pro still has not presented and argument to support his case or responded to my rebuttal in any meaningful way. Pro has not fullfilled his burden of proof since he has made no case to support the resolution. Arguments extended.

Reasons for voting decision: In this debate, Con has proven that Pro is outright flase in trying to fit the definition of control with direction and timing. Therefore, the obvious winner in this debate is Con.
