If you are on this site, and not a maker of it, you are most likely a fool.

Debate Round No. 1

Pro

well what is your retort? this is a debate! right? debater or troll?
InnovativeEphemera

Con

Thank you for the debate.

My opponent fails to meet his burden of proof. As Pro, it is up to him to demonstrate that we are all fools, and for me to counter his arguments.

Nevertheless, I am happy to provide a counterarguments to the resolution.

Definitions

Fool
1. asillyorstupidperson;apersonwholacksjudgmentorsense.
2. a jester or clown, especially one retained in a royal or noble household.

Arguments

Definition two is easy to refute.
P1) Ff we are all fools, we are all jesters.
P2) I am not a jester.
C1) We are not all jesters.
C2) We are not all fools.

Presumably, however, you were in fact referring to definition one.

It is up to you to demonstrate that everyone is silly or stupid, lacking judgment and sense.
I do not feel that I lack judgement or sense; in addition, I feel that a majority of DDO users who have reached a certain level of experience have demonstrated that they are not stupid or lacking in at least a basic level of good sense.

Conclusion
While there is obviously much more for me to say, I'd like to hear my opponents actual arguments before I go on.

Summarily, we are not all fools.

Pro

That was great thank you. You totally proved my point.

most likely and all are not the same. scientifically that is.
InnovativeEphemera

Con

Thank you for your round.

My opponent has provided no argument for me to contend. He has stated a position, then presented exactly zero reasons to support it. His burden of proof had not been met. He has not demonstrated that we are all fools.

Best of luck in the polls and your future debates.

Your argument consisted of "most likely and all are not the same. scientifically that is."

The title of the debate is quite clearly, "we are all fools". So you lost the debate. Scientifically, that is.

You lost the debate and are now bitter about it. Don't start calling me a fool because there's no universe in which you've demonstrated more intelligence than me.

the free one, mostly it seems to be a state of mind, more then a land mass.

I guess it depends...which nation are you in?

Have no fear, I am not prejudiced grammatically, I could read the letters and understand. Don't be so damn fearful of being judged on your grammar. In an nation that preaches diversity how can we judge someone on a grammar standard?

It appears that one of my lines became somehow truncated. I've had this problem before. Here it is with spaces:
"a silly or stupid person; a person who lacks judgment or sense."

Reasons for voting decision: Moving the goalpost fallacy was distracting from pros case (in fact it overshadowed it, but than so would anything). No contest to cons arguments, pro thinks they support him, but in no way indicated why.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro had no argument but an opinionated assertion, Which doesn't actually count as proof for anything, and Con did a good job of making a logical argument that Pro didn't contend.

Reasons for voting decision: Coduct points for obvious reasons. Grammar points for the lack of ability to write full sentences and capitalise the first letter of them at the beginning. Argument points as Pro failed to make any arguments and therefore failed his BOP.
