Firstly I like to say that this debate is pathetic and a waste of my time, but I've decided to go through anyway since Ive got some time of my hands.

First of all my opponent didn't event state or define the topic properly. sun rises in east. pathetic. The Sun the huge star of gas made a long time ago, rises in the easterly direction on our compass. However, my opponent did not state where in the world you would be when sun rose in the east. For the purposes of this debate and due to the reason my opponent has not specified otherwise and can no longer do so after I've defined it. The location in question is The South Pole, down in Antarctica.

Point 1: Compass Bearing.

Hopefully for this part of my debate the voters will understand my logic. Imagine you are standing on the south pole of the Antarctic. You have a compass in your hand and you are half freezing to death but what I'm thinking about here in this situation is in which direction the compass points. Now, being directly on top of the south pole, what is the main direction you can head in? North. In fact its the only direction you can head in. Of course its so simple. You can only travel north seeing as going east while you are on the south pole will just send you north. Ok hopefully the voters got their heads around that. leading on...

Point 2: Sun Patterns

If you have the time please venture a look on over to this site which in fact will tell you when and on which day the sun will rise. http://www.timeanddate.com...
If you had a look at this site close to the time i posted this debate you'll notice that on some days the sun doesn't even rise at all. It doesn't even pass the horizon.

Conclusion: Thus not only has my opponent not thoroughly thought through his argument but he has supplied no evidence and no argument what so ever. And so, for the topic in question, the Sun dose not rise in the east on the South Pole, it rises in the North and some days it doesn't all.

My friend has substantiated his arguments really well. He seems too logical but the fact he cannot defy is --
Cheers !! For adding flavors to GK.
Now, I would have certainly typed arguments citing authorities..but my intention to learn keeps me apart.
Advance wishes for Christmas.

I think what my opponent is trying to say through his mindless banter and his unwillingness to accept defeat is that he forfeits since it would seem he has not submitted any rebuttal or any new evidence. Thus without further points from my opponent in the next round I would be forced to close this debate.

Thank you Pro and well debated

Due to my opponent giving no new evidence or points for his argument this debate is now closed and left to the voters to decide on a winner.

Many thanks Pro

I am beginning to see a trend and my view is that if someone doesn't state something properly, the contendor or whomever tends to get unncessarily upset. Yes he should have defined specifics but that is blatantly obvious to those with an IQ > 70.

Dear lord, just get on with the debate.
