Please keep this light hearted.

Basically what would it say about the world, if your debates (win or loose) dictated the truth of existence. Ideally your conflicting debates, and more funny ones being central. (feel free to exaggerate the results)

For me...

Creation would be taught in public schools; ... but prayer (or quiet time) would be a punishable offense.
The military draft would be back in full effect; ... as it's needed to battle the pirate scourge now that the ninjas are dead.
There would be no death penalty, in fact prisoners would be forced to stay alive long after their natural lives should have ended.
No one would eat dog meat, in fact dogs would probably eat us.

lol I love Michael Savage.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!

That would suck all the fun out of playing devil's advocate.
