I believe if someone believes something is right it is right in their own mind but not to other people. A state of mind is decides what is right and what is wrong to that person much like people who dont believe homework is right or abortion is right.

I would like my opponent to clarify the resolution a little more to where it can be clearly debatable.

Are we going to argue it that if one thinks the pizza is yummy then he is right no matter what and it is yummy?

first off lol sorry about that
OKay what i mean is if someone believesthat 2 2=fish does that make it correct in all fairness i have to say it does, for what someone believes is truly correct for well that's what level of reality that person is on and there for cannot be classified as wrong.

That's pretty hard to debate. If what you said were so then there would be no debate. But even if it is their own reality, not everything someone believes is correct.

Such as someone believing an apple is a banana. This is wrong on all accounts. Even if it is their reality they are wrong.

Yes it is true but that they are wrong by us. who's to say that our realty is wrong and theirs is right? then if that was the case then their might not even be a debate, but if this throws you off you can just deny everything I said and in truth if you really believe that your right then you are right, it's like an opinion ti's wrong but right and can be proven wrong or right as if it was a scientific theory

I know this is a hard topic to debate and for that I'm sorry

Alright so you say it would be wrong by us. However, its additionally wrong by nature. Since both of those items that I specified were different.

But yes, this is pretty confusing lol.

How can Pro be getting so much of the vote? Is this the cute-girl-icon effect?

Pro didn't say anything coherent. Con was clear that if A is not B, A remains not B no matter if someone believes it is B.

This isn't even a debatable topic. It's nonsense and no different that trying to prove that your "red" is my "green" and I see "blue" like you see "yellow". There is no possible evidence for either side.

Wow... and there goes the last of my faith in humanity. Anybody else have the sudden urge to slap someone after reading this "debate"??

So what if I *believe* that believing something doesn't make it true. Wouldn't, by your logic, make your idea untrue?
