Description

Voters should judge with the presupposition that all arguments are correct unless proven wrong or sufficiently challenged, and weigh the arguments accordingly to see whether their is more arguments (by weight) to support santa being a real person who flies around the world on a sleigh delivering presents every Christmas. Or whether con has successfully provided more evidence for whatever his stupid belief is..

Argue in the spirit of what the debate is intended to be. Also no Jews, blacks or women may accept he debate

Santa deniers are wrong.

This is part of the topic that the opposing side is in favor of but have yet to substantiate.

Who or what is Santa?

A figure or character being falsely credited with giving gifts and presents. Pretty much in a nutshell. It goes pass a simple fairytale but has been refined well into commercialism.

So we already know it's a fairytale and fairy tales offer false stories particularly directed at children.

Due to character limits, points to post in comments.

So something that is false that is denied being real is an intelligent stance because we can see that the principle often times is used and used to much avail.
Such as rejecting false accusations for a lack of evidence or evidence against them to keep a person falsely convicted. A lawyer that has accomplished this for whom they're defending is intelligent, smart and they accomplish this by denying bogus charges.

Another example would be rejecting or denying a false or fraudulent service meant to scam .
To prevent being a victim of such scam, someone acts intelligent, smart, not stupid in order to avoid a fall to victimization.
They do so by researching, gathering the facts and evidence that disproves any legitimate angle involved and denying the false veracity of said purported service.

Now this concludes the summary of my position finally .
