Opponent's Argument

This is a 2-round debate. In a debate as short as this it should be allowed for rebuttals to take place in R1 as rebutting everything in R2 would be even less convenient.
mars stay is fooling-ness . in what context to defending it ? 
This sentence is borderline incomprehensible to me, and it is not my fault, due to the grammatical aspects of said sentence being vastly different than most other text written in English on this site in which users can respond and vote and comment. This site is intended to be used in English since the very first forum topic created, so I am going to interpret this sentence using a less esoteric format of English language.
  • Staying on the planet Mars is foolish. In what ways could we defend it?(Note, The latter part, a question, is interpreted as a rhetorical one, intended to illustrate that the Mars stay is unprotected in terms of ethics or logical sense, and not for answering)
economic ? 

resources ?

feasibility ? 

social ?

philosophical ?
Pro listed such possible ways of defending a Mars stay, or so it seems. Despite that, this is no argument at all. It merely speculates that a counterargument to Pro's position may exist. Everything until this point will be seen as nothing as it has no impact.

about juvenile  : 
 
musk mis-representing it in to make more population (like he have bunch of babies ) , its unresourceful .
I think Pro is trying to say that Elon Musk is being unethical by planning to essentially 'farm' humans on Mars. That is what comes from my limited ability to interpret exotic structures in a linguistical sense.

However, borderline no context was provided here. What source proves that Musk is skewing the representation to produce more population? How is it unresourceful?

In fact, the term "Unresourceful" is not even included in the Merriam-Webster dictionary. By speculation in what Pro might have meant, we take the opposite of the definition of the term "resourceful".

resourceful
adjective
re·source·ful ri-ˈsȯrs-fəl  
-ˈzȯrs-

able to meet situations capable of devising ways and means
resourceful leader
In other words, Pro suggests that the making of new human beings and placing them to live and explore on Mars is not capable of meeting variable situations. Pro suggests that Musk's Mars plan does not suggest a new viability. That is not the case. Of course, it is resourceful in some areas. Also, having more babies which we can educate no matter where we are will be potentially a wonderful method of bringing forth novel remedies, thus making this plan MORE resourceful than before in the long run.

Con's tructive

Now let's look at the prompt itself.
elon musk : mars : wasting resources and misguiding juveniles
Not only is Elon Musk and Mars not capitalized(making the already-confunded title even more so), the usage of colons in the title makes it entirely unclear what Pro is trying to argue, as it could mean a lot of things.
  • Elon Musk divided by Mars, divided by "wasting resources and misguiding juveniles", is overall more beneficial than harmful.
  • Elon Musk and Mars wastes resources and misguide juveniles.
  • It is true that Elon Musk, who is Mars, also wastes resources and misguides juveniles.
  • The Colon mark represents a word in a programming language that I probably do not know that for Pro comes natually due to his potential area of expertise.
Just to name a few. Wow. Which one is it? The description does not specify which interpretation it is.

I will choose the interpretation of:
Elon Musk and Mars wastes resources and misguide juveniles.
Since it is the easiest to make sense of.

Mars

How could Mars, an inanimate object yet to be proven to even be sentient at all or able for trickery, misguide juveniles? Mars does not guide at all. That is my argument.

Conclusions
  1. Pro makes himself not at all clear when it comes to just what he is arguing, and it could be interpreted that he made no argument at all.
    1. The argument regarding juveniles both is unsourced and makes zero sense.
  2. Pro's title statement is unclear.
    1. Interpreting the statement(if it even is one at all), one finds that it is incredibly easy to disprove it.
