How can something be unseen if it has already been seen?
How can something be known without knowledge?
How does your argument help you in this debate?

unknown=imaginary
knowledge

i can imagine a red dragon farting unicorns that fart rainbows, but it would be lie a for me to say i have "seen "it

known=knowledge

knowledge is the color for me to paint the picture

my argument helps in that you havnt countered it and so you are not con yet
Russia_The_almighty

Con

People have seen a red dragon farting unicorns, that fart rainbows in their imagination if they decided to imagine that. You never said where you see it. You have seen it in your imagination.
Actually I have countered it. Why? You haven't answered my 2 other question about that argument at all.

red dragon farting unicorns that fart rainbows are unknown, even thou i can see them in my mind, they dont classify as known

unseen=unknown

cons shows why pro is wrong
Russia_The_almighty

Con

You say that because you have seen them in your mind that they don't classify as known, but you then say: unseen=unknown. So which is it then?

This argument is one big logical fallacy known as a "red herring". Basically, a red herring is when someone avoids a question or inserts a point that has nothing to do with the topic at hand. This can make debates spin out of control until they are no longer arguing about the actual topic, but something completely absurd like rhinos and farts and unicorns.
