Ok you got me with the cuteness there haha. Enzo the tiger is going to be stuck in my head all day now.

Silliness aside, round 1 of this war begins.

First of all what are you trying to make a point of? That when you tame wild animals the end of that chain of evolution is they become lazy? If so I have responses.

1. Enzo was tired.

Self explanatory.

2. Enzo is a rare case of a wild animal that is tamed.

Tigers are pretty hard to tame, so Enzo is a rare example that proves your point.

3. Tame Wild Animals are very useful, not just lazy.

https://www.youtube.com...

I mean, this should prove the point. Also animals have been helped out by humans too.


Now for some quick arguments.

1. The evolution of taming a wild animal is not Enzo, it is this.

https://www.youtube.com...

And this, https://www.youtube.com...

And this sad crap. https://www.youtube.com... "kill the cow" *sigh*

2. What do you mean by wild animals?

Some definitions, or even clarification would have been nice. A YouTube video is not enough to do the subject justice unfortunately.


With that, you have just been rekt.

tired, sleeping inside the house

i dont think tame means lazy, enzo is very powerfull.. and tame dosnt mean useless
https://www.youtube.com...

it takes knowledge to tame a beast like that..

by wild animal i mean non bread or not born in capticity i guess.. but it will always have the features of the wild to be a tiger, even thou enzo is not fed with living animals

Alright I appreciate the minor clarification you have provided. A couple points.

1. The resolution was a directive style resolution.

What this means is that the resolution challenged the debaters to provide examples that they could support the resolution.

So the thing we needed to support was the evolution of taming wild animals. You did not do that. You had only enzo the tiger. I on the other hand, had video games, a zookeeper, and some common logic to explain the current evolution state of taming wild animals.

So as it rests, I have won the resolution.

2. Your statements have been too vague so far to warrant a ballot.

"it takes knowledge to tame a beast like that.."

This statement has no evidential support, and doesn't make sense in the context of the current evolution state of taming wild animals.

"i dont think tame means lazy"

Then what is your argument. I really cannot find an argument in round 1 from you, apart from that idea.

Also, I had to infer LITERALLY EVERYTHING I did from round 1 out of a VIDEO. Your video had no points to make concerning the topic. But you thought it valid evidence. I gave it my best shot, yet tore it to pieces nonetheless.

For this skimpiness of arguments by Pro, I ask voters vote Con.

Thank you, and round 1 of the 42 vs vi_spex war has concluded.

still evolution

The taming of a wild animal is devolving. Not evolving. If it were evolving it would be able to interact with humans and be tame while still distinguishing when it is necessary to use its wilder instincts to hunt prey.

Enzo is not an example of evolution of taming a wild animal?

No my point is Enzo is an outdated example of that evolution.

That is all.

Reasons for voting decision: Spelling and grammar went to Con for obvious reasons. Con had more convincing arguments since he proved Pro's null. Not really a good debate by Pro.
