Pro

stories are false and reality is stories. stories are made by man and man is simulation, therefore reality is false.
vi_spex

Con

how can there be a simulation without something to simulate?

you don't want me to burn you with a lighter, but if you imagine me burning your arm its fine, no pain

Pro

the something you say to simulate is something that simulates nothing.

if you burned me with a ligher, i didnt imagine it because it happened.
vi_spex

Con

something is true and nothing is false, stories are nothing.

Pro

nothing can't be false if something is true because nothing is something as the label of nothing is something created by man. stories are something as they are a collection of ideas.
vi_spex

Con

the opposite of physical is mental, something is physical

if we cut open a head, and take out the brain, we cant poor the information, mind, thoughts, ideas, out on the floor, so they are not things, they are nothing

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Tie. Both had proper conduct throughout. S&G - Tie. Both had horrible spelling and grammar throughout the debate, oddly enough they were equally this bad. Arguments - Tie. Neither side presented a coherent argument that swayed my opinion one way or the other. Pro worked on baseless assumptions and so did Con. If they aren't the same person, then I honestly believe vi_spex has just met his soulmate on DDO. Neither swayed me though by the end of the debate, thus this remains a tie. Sources - Tie. Neither utilized sources in this debate.
