I say that the law of non-contradiction is false. Willing to debate this motion, even though the diminished capacity of many a voter of ddo may mean I lose.

I have found a proof, no trolling, no semantics, no intellectual dishonesty. Inform me and I can challenge you. The law of non-contradiction is defined by the Aristotelian definition.

Challenge BSH1 if he's interested. I'm too busy with other crap to do the debate soon.

My interest level is really time-contingent.

If you can accept these terms that is fine, but I do not see how I could make it any more open.

Pro should just post "The Law of Non-Contradiction is False, Therefore Pro Should Win" every round and win the debate.

Gosh, maybe. I was going to debate Sargon on a similar resolution, but, since we never did our debate, I can move you to the top of the list.

I'm scared.

Is your proof in any way related to the Liar's paradox?

The problem with any such proof is that it would imply a meaningless definition of its own validity. For if the law of non-contradiction is false, it could still be true, and you have not actually proven anything.

Yeah, basically... it's a bit like saying that you've proved that you can't prove anything.

Can I accept this one instead of the aether debate?

Exactly. You might as well not even speak, since nothing you say would have meaning or implication as it would be indistinguishable from its logical negation. Ajabi could just as easily leave his rounds blank.
