Dann can learn, so he is a tool!

Con

Dann hasn"t shown me he can learn a thing and a tool is at least useful. Dann seem more like an idiot and a useless one at that. Dann, the Christian non-Christian, and this says it all.

This debate came rather close, to be honest. To begin, I will say that entering this debate I had no knowledge of who exactly Dann was. I was quite intrigued to learn more about him, and find out for myself whether he was a tool or a moron. However, this debate has not persuaded me of one or the other, but rather both. I have come to believe Dann is both a tool AND a moron. Conduct is tied, as this debate went over with the civility one would expect from a good, clean debate. I cannot, however, tie spelling and grammar. This point goes to Pro, as he had not made a single mistake in the entire debate, while Con used a quotation mark as an apostrophe and said, "Dann SEEM more elike an idiot," making his case lose credibility. Arguments also go to Pro, and here's why: Con, instead of proving Dann as a moron, proved him as an idiot. This did not construct his case. The Christian non-Christian point was confusing, and while I don't understand how tools can possess learning capabilities, Pro had at least met a satisfactory burden of proof that Con seemed just slightly unable to counter. Since no one presented any facts from a source other than their own opinions and knowledge, I obviously have no choice but to leave sources tied.

Congratulations to both of you on a very intelligent, thoughtful debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made his case relying completely on a single claim. Dann can learn, so he is a tool. But pro failed to link the two together. This is therefore a non-sequitur fallacy. Con pointed this out by saying that Dann hasn't shown that. A valid claim which refuted Pros only argument. At this point, the resolution stands completely negated, but Con carried on further by providing his own arguments, Dann seems more like an idiot, inferring that he was thus a moron. This analysis is subjective reasoning however, no points can be awarded for that. But he did employ a trump card, saying that Dann was 'the Christian non-Christian.' But Con also failed to link this to his case. He never demonstrated why this made the resolution false. Instead he assumed that the sentence said it all. Subjectivity once again. None of Cons arguments introduced actually worked, but since he did his part by refuting the affirmative argument, he wins this debate.
