I accept. The Burden of Proof is on Pro, to show or prove that "Love is a dream, and hate is waking up from it".

Good luck.
Debate Round No. 1


my claim is true


Thank you for your response, vi_spex.

Well, this was a boring debate. Pro makes no arguments, therefore I only have to prove the resolution wrong in the most basic sense.

Looking at the sentence,

"love is a dream"

Dream is defined as [1]
: a series of thoughts, visions, or feelings that happen during sleep
: an idea or vision that is created in your imagination and that is not real
: something that you have wanted very much to do, be, or have for a long time

Love is defined as [2]
: a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person
: attraction that includes sexual desire : the strong affection felt by people who have a romantic relationship
: a person you love in a romantic way

As we can see, love is (clearly) different from a dream. Pro's resolution has been refuted.


To my opponents credit, I do see how this can actually be interpreted as some kind of metaphor. This is only to my opponents credit because I have read some of his/her other debates, and in comparison, this resolution makes an overwhelming amount of sense. Sadly, Pro makes absolutely no attempts to back up this or any sort of claim, nor attempts to explain how the resolution is correct. Thus I win with the only standing argument in the debate, in which I compare "dream" and "love", proving that love is not a dream.

Love is totally different thing it might look like dream for other but it is known by individual person and his feeling is wrong we have no point to say .and if we are talking about love then how hate get birth from here how darkness comes out from light?

Love and hate do exist. We do not dream that. We do dream what it is.

Love does not exist, hate exists only. (this is the gist of the debate)

Can I assume that the pro party has just been dumped?
