Reason:

Pro failed to explain what the significance of the number "72" has relative to evidence of an intelligent designer of our universe as it relates to geometric shapes and measurements of our known universe. However, even if all of those measurements Pro posted were (a) perfectly accurate (i.e divisible by 72 down to an infinite number of decimal places and (b) in standard metric system format, I don't see how these can be considered evidence at all - they're interesting observations that peak curiosity, but not indicative of a grand designer.

Reason:

Con effectively refuted all of Pro's arguments. No rebuttal was offered nor any additional evidence to the paltry and seemingly coincidental evidence submitted in the first round.

Reason:

Pro fails to ascertain why the imprecise coincidences prove an intricate design. Con caused Pro to forfeit but this wasn't just by being better, Pro is quitting smoking cold turkey as posted on the 0
Personal forums so there's clearly a lot going on in her life. Do not judge this loss as her quitting the site, may she become healthier happier and a better debater in time!

Reason:

Full forfeit - in addition, con clearly deserves the win even were full forfeits unmoderated. It was a pretty good refutation in his opening reply.
