According to you, no one knows the answer to the question to "why is the rum gone?" Which means that if I can prove that one person knew the answer to why the rum is gone, then I will win the debate.

In the youtube clip, Elizabeth Swann gives two great answers to why the rum is gone.
1) "Because it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectful men into complete scoundrels."
2)"That signal (referring to fire that she created with the help of burning the rum so the Royal Navy will find her) is over 1000 feet high, the entire Royal Navy is out looking for me, do you really think that there is even the slightest chance that they won't see it?"
