Round 1
Pro
#1
Premise 1:
If existence of something cannot be disproven, it exists.

Premise 2:
Existence of Cthulhu cannot be disproven.

Conclusion:
Cthulhu exists.

My opponent has burden of proof to prove that Cthulhu doesnt exist.

I will wait.

Argument: Cthulhu is Not the True God

Definition: A true god is defined as a deity possessing supreme authority, omnipotence, omniscience, and moral perfection, with substantiated existence through reliable evidence and logical reasoning.

Evidence:
  1. Literary Fiction: Cthulhu is a fictional cosmic entity created by author H.P. Lovecraft, belonging to the horror genre known as Lovecraftian fiction.
  2. Contradictions in Attributes: Cthulhu is depicted as a malevolent and monstrous being, devoid of moral perfection or benevolence, contradicting the concept of a true god.
  3. Lack of Historical or Cultural Recognition: Cthulhu lacks recognition as a deity in any historical or cultural context outside of Lovecraft's fictional universe.
  4. Fictional Nature: Cthulhu exists solely within the realm of fiction and has no basis in historical or religious texts, mythology, or cultural practices.
  5. Scientific Understanding: Cthulhu's existence is purely fictional and has no relevance to scientific inquiry or understanding of the natural world.
Conclusion: Cthulhu fails to meet the criteria of a true god due to its fictional nature and contradictions in attributes.

Premise 1:
If existence of something cannot be disproven, it exists.
Logical fallacy. 


Premise 2:
Existence of Cthulhu cannot be disproven.
We have evidence that Cthulu is a fictional being that doesn't exist in the real world but only in the fictional one.


Conclusion:
Cthulhu exists.
Fails by faulty premises. PRO has not fullfilled his BoP.
Round 3
Pro
#5
Since there is no proof that Cthulhu doesnt exist, the only logical conclusion is that Cthulhu exists.
Con
#6
PRO fails his BoP.
