if you are blind, the sky is not blue. therefore, the sky being blue is relative to the person.

I consider that to be a forfeit.
another point is that we are not able to tell if one person's color is the same color as another. this argument may sound weak and stupid, but if you think about it, you are not able to get into another person's mind and see what they see. for example, my blue may be someone else's red, but because they have grown up knowing that color is red, they believe it. just like there is no way to tell what side of the world is the up side, it is all relative.

While you may have a valid point, I believe that there is a universal understanding for colors and the sky being blue is like a universal translation that helps combine people on common ground.

How are we so sure that our blue is another person's blue? A could see the blue sky. B could see a blue sky as well but the projection his brain sees is red, which he has been taught is blue.

Get it?

IN the color spectrum, us humans see blue. If you were a snake, who knows what you would see.
But as someone said here, it is universally accepted that the color of the sky is blue,

Actually due the fact that light in the sky reflects blue and absorbs every other color, the sky is literally every color except for blue.

Reasons for voting decision: Although Pro was a troll, you could see right through Con's arguments. Con has yet to satisfy why the sky is not blue; yes it is relative but I look at the sky and I see blue. Therefore it is blue. The relativity argument can go both ways.
