I created it so I would know. Prove the earth is bigger. Our earth. The one we are on at this moment. Not the other one we go to on holidays.

Con

The sun has a greater mass and greater volume, however "bigger" isn't a scientific measurement. Bigger is subjective to the person. for example, looking at the ground you would not be able to observe the whole earth, but when you look at the sky the sun appears small. Therefor the sun would appear smaller to the observer rather than its actual size. More massive yes, more volume yes, bigger? depends where your at in space. same as luminosity versus brightness.

Your opponent was using this definition.

Big:
significant:significant or important to somebody

This definition makes it subjective.

My opponent even admits that sun has more mass and volume. He also suggests that the sun being bigger than the earth is subjective. I happen to believe this to be false. The sun is objectively bigger than the earth. I believe that mathematics are more reliable than just looking at something with your naked eye. I believe that to also be objective. Therefore, the sun is bigger than the earth.

@ actionsspeak good point. I've never thought about it from that angle. Although I also doubt it would be smaller than the earth.

Well the Sun would be smaller than it is now at earth's tempature,(since matter expands when heated)but I doubt it would be smaller than the earth.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro loses by forfeiting and not addressing the valid point Con has made. Pro should have been more specific and defined a few terms such as "bigger." This debate was obviously intended by the instigator to noob snipe.
