 Pro I will lose this debate . .Report this Argument Con I accept. Since pro has conceded their arguments intrigue me.Report this Argument Pro I hereby forfeit all points to Con.I declare my loss of this debate. Report this Argument Con Since my opponent has conceded the debate it is true that he will most likely lose the debate however this debate isn't about likelihood. This debate is about absoloute facts. Since my opponent is making the claim the 'I' in the resolution almost certainly refers to him. He states that he will lose the debate. The resolution offers no explanation regarding if we are basing it off probability or not. Since this reolution creates a paradox the winner of the debate is never guaranteed. I do not have to argue that I will lose the debate, my burden merely requirs me to prove that there isn't a 100% chance that my opponent will lose the debate. The resolution creates a paradox and as a result it is quite possible that votes will remain neutral and this debate will end a tie. Assuming that voters do not vote on this debate and voters are not obliged to vote on every debate it is not guaranteed that my opponent will lose. If my opponent does lose that does not mean that they have met their burden. Their burden requires them to prove that they will lose for a 100% fact at this point in time. Voters cannot vote for him because his prediction was correct. They should only vote for him if he can justify why there is a 100% chance that he will lose the debate. Report this Argument Pro Benjiboy960 forfeited this round. Report this Argument Con I have proven that my opponent will not lose for a 100% chance and therefore my burden is met. Report this Argument

>Reported vote: Peepette// Mod action: Removed<

5 points to Pro (Conduct, S&G, Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Cons assertions were correct that 100% certainly of loosing the debate was not a given. To assert Cons point I'm voting Pro as the winner.

[*Reason for removal*] (1) The voter does not justify conduct or S&G point allocations. (2) The voter has to analyze more of the debate than just a single argument in order to afford arguments points.

>Reported vote: Greg4586// Mod action: Removed<

4 points to Pro (Conduct, Arguments), 2 points to Pro (Sources). Because Con is currently winning I must make pro win to affirm the current position of the votes.

[*Reason for removal*] (1) The voter does not justify either conduct or arguments. (2) This comes off as an attempt to counter other voters. That is strictly against the rules, even on a debate of this sort. Votes should not be treated as self-fulfilling prophecies.
