I WOULD LIKE TO SAE THAT LIFE IS NOT BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE WE R NOT ABLE TO TAKE OUR INDEPENDENT VIEWS

Thank you for the opportunity to debate this topic.

First of all, I never got how anyone could seriously say that life isn't beautiful. Honestly, I'm not sure exactly what your point means... that we can't "take our independent views".

Life, and everything in it, is everything we will ever have. Of course, there's the hedonistic stuff: sex, money, food, TV. Depending on the kind of person you are, that might be good. Hell, that might be paradise. But I think most of us tend to appreciate the "big picture" things: Love, knowledge, curiosity, music, literature, friendship, family, philosophy, science, faith, the smell of roses, the present on your birthday, and not to mention birth itself. Maybe all of that stuff sprinkled with the hedonistic things, or vice-versa.

I mean, don't get me wrong, life isn't a bed of roses. There's war, starvation, bad times in general, and death. Sometimes, life sucks. But it's the only thing we've got. I'd live a life of pain for moments of beauty and love from my family and friends. That's the stuff life's made of. I'm sorry, but I don't understand how one would rather not experience at all. Just nothingness? Life is beautiful, my friend. Not perfect, not by a long shot, but far better than nothing.

It looks like my opponent made a Shetty attempt at a rebuttal. Heheh.

Anyways, all my points remain, and my opponent's original point wasn't all that clear to begin with.

Geez, why do people start debates with no intent to finish. What a waste of time.
