To prove that viruses don't exist. Answer these logic questions -

1. How did the first person to see a virus know that it was a virus without any references as to what a virus looks like?
2. How do viruses find their host if they have no legs, arms, eyes, ears, brains, sense of touch or means of locomotion?
3. How can something that is dead, suddenly come to life?
4. How can viruses survive in the atmosphere and sunlight without any walls for protection? (very fragile)
5. How does a entity (virus) that kills its host pass on its genes and what does it gain by killing the host?
6. If viruses are proteins, then why don't small insects like ants find them and eat them all?

I have been forced to duplicate this debate because there are a couple of obnoxious conscientious objectors who keep accepting and not replying to this debate. Note - This is how a corrupt system protects itself.

"Anything can exist. If this is countered by the answer 'anything can exist except a thing that can't exist', then this concedes that conceptual things (such as something that can't exist) exist, as concepts. If concepts exist, the concept of a virus means that it exists anyway."

Genius.

Doesn't his avatar look rude and arrogant. Very appropriate I think.
