 Pro Now I will win, because if I do win, I will... win, and if I do lose, I will lose, but my prediction will be correct. Now outsmart me.Report this Argument Con You have the same problem in this debate. You can't be proven until the voting period is up, which is when no one will be able to vote on your validity. Until then you can't substantiate your position. Since you can't substantiate your position, I negate you simply by disagreeing with you. That means I win.Report this Argument Pro Again, if I lose, I will be correct, and as I disagree with you, this is a interesting debate. We have no supporting arguments, and so there is one person on each side. Predicting the outcome, I think this will be a draw.Report this Argument Con I'm going to explain the burden of proof of my opponent using math. He must support his position at any number greater than zero. Let's say an assertion/opinion is equal to y Supporting evidence is the variable x whereas x is greater than zero. My side is the same. To determine the winner mathematically, you must figure out whether pro has been negated. So if an assertion y is pitted against an assertion y, then we take y-y. No matter what number y is y-y=0 Since 0 is not greater than 0, my opponent has been negated by me simply disagreeing with him.Report this Argument Pro However, You must support your side at any number less than zero, and so we, again will tie. So far, we are at zero, so without any valid evidence, there is no way to win or lose this, making it a draw.Report this Argument Con No this is not true. It is the negative's burden to negate. That means to make sure that mathematically the affirmative side is at zero or lesser than zero. I do not have to prove lesser than zero. I just have to prove at most zero. If I prove zero then I win. I have proven zero. Therefore I win.Report this Argument
