Both forfeited every round after the first, but con made a strong counter argument (catching built in contradictions, using historical examples to add even more, etc.) which as the cut-off point for the debate, with plenty of opportunity to be defended against, takes home the argument points.
"i believe that god is not a force because a force with no mind cannot do anything except for the what it is meant to do... and we have found no proof of a force designed to make sure everything is working in a way to create humans. if god is a force then we wouldn't call him a god."
"God is a living force with a mind of its own"
This complete contradiction presented by Pro (which Con addressed) basically killed whatever point they had to begin with. Pro started out with three premises: that god is not a person, system, or force... and then goes on to conclude that god is a force. That and the fact that Con rebutted the points presented by Pro gives Con the win in the argument category.
Neither side used sources, the minor S&G mistakes made by Pro don't dramatically impede the ability for the audience to understand the main point presented, and Conduct is tied, since they both forfeited 4 rounds.
Wow I feel like Ragnar with the amount of stuff I put into my RFD. <--- Compliment to Ragnar ;)
