Geocentricist

Pro

My opponent has to prove Earth moves. Good luck.
Akhenaten

Con

The Earth spins on its axis which is classed as a movement. Thus, I win this debate. Do you have any more debates that you would like to lose?
Debate Round No. 1
Geocentricist

Pro

You can't just say Earth spins. You have to prove it.
Akhenaten

Con

You can't just say that the Earth doesn't spin. YOU have to prove it. I believe in equal proof finding responsibilities. Its called democracy. Any other system is just a tyranny.
Debate Round No. 2
Geocentricist

Pro

Actually I stipulated in the first round that you had to prove your position. I said nothing about me having to prove my own. So good luck trying to prove Earth moves, you will need the luck since you clearly don't have the skill.
Akhenaten

Con

You are just a rude little poofter, so I wont have to prove anything to you.
If the world wasn't spinning we'd all be dead and frozen stiff billions of years ago dick head. Its called common sense which you don't possess.

Make it 5, he has one more with me now. Although I am curious what kind of arguments would a geocentricist have.

Im going to be honest, I dont think this is a debate. Pro doesnt have a burden of proof and later, Con started insulting Pro which usually decreases points in the judging catergory of manner had this been in a debate tournament in real life. Hopefully things will turn for the better.

I was not aware of that NDECD. That does change things.

My favorite is that Pro is arguing the same thing with 4 people at the same time. I wonder what the results will be for all of them.

He already requested the other account to be removed. This does not put him in any wrong.

If pro is an alt account, that indicates that pro is scared that he will lose and does not want a loss recorded on his main account.

Could you provide definitions on what Geocentrism means? Also is the burden of proof shared between pro and con?
