In this rebuttal I will be going over the argument that my opponent brought up in his last document. 

1. Side effects are too dangerous. 
First of all, my opponent said "most if not all prescription medication have tons of side effects per pill including thoughts to kill yourself, puking blood, yellow skin and eyes, and disturbing weight gain increase."  while these are terrible things...these are very rare. if you see on the bottle it says "side effects MAY include etc." it never says you WILL experience those effects. and if you do experience one. its very rare to experience another. and most of the time whenever someone experiences these, its from an allergic reaction.
as you can see at this page its very rare to experience these 

https://medshadow.org/medshadow_blog/do-rare-side-effects-really-happen/

and also i dont think we should be trusting a guy who puts a link to the video for these terrible side effects and says its and i quote "funny as hell"

also i dont think that my opponent knows what he is talking about completely. he says that the root for pharmacist is a poisoner and that the root for it is in the word. well where he got that definition was from bible hub. and whenever that word was formed it was in ancient times and they didn't have real medicine, so they relied on sorcery and that lad to poisoning. and i think we can agree that we dont use sorcery as our medicine nowadays. so you can disregard that argument.

and finally i would like to show you why prescription medicine is helpful. just read part of this article here.

the charity lion make its founder who is a satanist/masonic follower believes in the false work philosophy

if they do not use sorcery in medicine nowadays why are there over 100 side effects in our medication i mean these are not small side effect mind you these medicen damage the entire body

this is why they use to burn witches at the stake in the 1800s. but instead they stopped and our medical industry is ran by witch doctors

"Side effects are too dangerous. First of all, my  opponent said "most if not all prescription medication have tons of side  effects per pill including thoughts to kill yourself, puking blood,  yellow skin and eyes, and disturbing weight gain increase." while these  are terrible things...these are very rare. if you see on the bottle it  says "side effects MAYinclude etc." it never says you WILL experience  those effects. and if you do experience one. its very rare to  experience another. and most of the time whenever someone experiences  these, its from an allergic reaction.

https://medshadow.org/medshadow_blog/do-rare-side-effects-really-happen/


if you light yourself on fire you may die but it is not 100 percent


like your sources says some of these side effects are 1 in 1000 to 1 and 10000 of happening  but they are poisoning millions of people at a time.your source says that crestor gave out 21 million prescription drugs that cause sever liver damage, and that 1 in 1000 chance of happening is now over 2100 to 21000 people with liver damage



my opponent said
"and finally i would like to show you why prescription medicine is helpful. just read part of this article here.https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/SpecialFeatures/ucm485545.htm"

so if you stop taking your poison you would die. so they make you dependent on it

its an add for a prescription medication know as opdvial with a guy stopping it midway through and says something about it that take about 5 seconds. what was funny is his reaction to one of the side effects that is may cause your immune system to attack your  normal organs and tissues and effect how they work.

ok so in this last document, im pretty much going to show you how unreliable my opponents opinion is.
First of all he started by responding to my claim about ancient medicine and said that sorcery is in todays medicine. are you serious? obviously my opponent does not know what he's talking about. that is a conspiracy theory and not a fact so you can disregard that argument.

also if you look at what evidence he relies on, he uses a COMMERCIAL. what? we cannot trust what this guy says.

next he said that the majority of those deaths he showed us were "medical mistakes". lets just stop and think about what that means. 
first of all lets think about how many surgeries there are in a year.

https://stanfordhealthcare.org/medical-clinics/surgery-clinic/patient-resources/surgery-statistics.html

this is what it says

surgical statistics for inpatient procedures include:

  • Nervous system surgeries: 1.2 million
  • Eye surgeries: 69,000
  • Ear surgeries: 24,000
  • Nose, mouth, and pharynx surgeries: 289,000
  • Respiratory system surgeries: 1.3 million
  • Cardiovascular system surgeries: 7.3 million
  • Digestive system surgeries: 6.1 million
  • Urinary system surgeries: 1.1 million
  • Musculoskeletal system surgeries: 5.2 million
  • Integumentary (skin) system surgeries: 1.4 million


so i think that we can see from this that "medical mistakes" can easily be the majority whenever this is how many surgeries are happening.
let me remind you that he never had evidence saying that those "medical mistakes" were from prescription medicine. 

its for all these reasons that i think you should vote for me
thank you.

turns out that killing your patient from prescription drugs does not count as a medical mistake

over 128,000 people die people die each year from prescription drugs
https://ethics.harvard.edu/blog/new-prescription-drugs-major-health-risk-few-offsetting-advantages

in fact prescription drugs kill more than illegal drugs

and i found this video on Adam ruins everything



my opponent said
"also if you look at what evidence he relies on, he uses a COMMERCIAL. what? we cannot trust what this guy says."

buddy whats wrong with using commercials when they get to the part when they talk real fast when talking about the side effects really proves my point



how does a bootlegged nicotine patch end up causing hallucinations change your thinking and or cause you to want to kill yourself. when creating these drugs how can these side effects be on accident



lunesta a drug that helps you sleep causes Hallucinations so it gives you schizophrenia how did we go from helping you sleep to giving you schizophrenia

"Ok so im just going to jump to the point. my opponent is not hearing me out correctly.

first of all my opponent has tried to say that sorcery is in medicine. lets not forget that he has no evidence for that.(that's what a conspiracy theorist is no matter what the "public" says)

second my opponent stated in response to me saying "medical mistakes can be multiple things" my opponent said "turns out that killing your patient from prescription drugs does not count as a medical mistake"....thats not what i said if we remember. i said that surgeries just are the majority of those probably.

also he said "buddy whats wrong with using commercials when they get to the part when they talk real fast when talking about the side effects really proves my point".....ok so i went and watched the chantix commercial and picked out a few points in it. #1 in the commercial he said "SOME may experience side effects." he never said you WOULD. #2 after he said the side effects he stated "stop taking chantix immediately if you start to slightly experience these." my point is, this drug is helping people, but for unfortunate few that experience these symptoms, they can stop before it gets serious and be safe. #3 finally, this source is not trustworthy. that video was  Published on Jan 5, 2010. do you know how much our medicine has changed since then? here just read this page
https://medschool.ucla.edu/body.cfm?id=1158&action=detail&ref=947
and his other commercial was from 2012.

thats why buddy we cant rely on your commercials.

overall my opponent has offered us nothing more than a theory based in 2012. times have changed and so has medicine. it would be a shame if you vote for my opponent because theories are not facts.

but you seem to have overlooked the part were i showed you the modern day logos for many of our medical corporations of 2 snakes and a staff and or one snake with an stick i between it


and secondly all that i have stated were facts name one time during this argument that i have stated anything but facts. and conspiracy theory were turned into a bad word from the mainstream media so that no one would listen to them. and a theory is based off facts.

another one of my debate arguers said
"First of all, my  opponent said "most if not all prescription medication have tons of side  effects per pill including thoughts to kill yourself, puking blood,  yellow skin and eyes, and disturbing weight gain increase." while these  are terrible things...these are very rare. if you see on the bottle it  says "side effects MAY include etc." it never says you WILL experience  those effects. and if you do experience one. its very rare to  experience another. and most of the time whenever someone experiences  these, its from an allergic reaction.as you can see at this page its very rare to experience these ""

if i cut off my hand  i may die it does not mean i will die
and most pills have almost 100 side effects per pill which means that the chances of getting one of those side effects is pretty high i mean if i take a pill i may not get all the side effects i may only get 25 that is still 25 different side effects i may not get the yellow eyes skin but the pill may change my brainwaves and put thoughts in my head so i commit suicide  cutting off my head and i kill myself and along with it i get the common side effects like 






he said i used commercials from 2012 and that those are inaccurate because there old. my response to that is that chantix from 2012 is the same chantix that is used today

he also said that medical mistakes were mostly surgery

ya but  1/3 of them are from prescription medication


questions for debater

1 has medication cured any diseases

2 how are these severe side effects not the result of poisoning.

3 and lastly is taking something like Prozac that helps with depression really worth yellow eyes and skin eye pain thoughts of suicide and changing in thinking and behavior worth it and the other potential 100 side affects

three big pharma scandal that will make you sick

"First of all...i will not argue with someone who thinks sorcery is how we make our medicine.
his proof was "a former satanist says he performed satanic rituals in abortion clinics" well first of all this is someone performing in a clinic. this is not putting it in prescription medicine. his evidence is not solid.
he went on to say the symbols is proof...seriously. im sorry but you said "theory's are based on facts" but you dont have FACTS saying that we use sorcery...a symbol won't cut it. we need real proof. 

next he asked me a few questions
1. "has medication cured any diseases"-----my response-----really? are you seriously asking this. if you want evidence that is unnecessary then here you go. well this article says "Advances in medicines have cured many diseases and saved lives." https://kidshealth.org/en/teens/meds.html

2 "how are these severe side effects not the result of poisoning."   you can't possibly expect that something will cure all of your sickness and have nothing wrong with it. you are expecting a perfect world. it would be foolish to vote PRO

3. "and lastly is taking something like Prozac that helps with depression really worth yellow eyes and skin eye pain thoughts of suicide and changing in thinking and behavior worth it and the other potential 100 side affects"     again...POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS. and lets not forget that my opponent never brought ups evidence saying that there is a good chance getting these side effects. i have brought up evidence saying that it is low. 

lastly this is a small point, but he said "saffron is said to be better than prozac for depression" lets remember my opponents case name again."prescription medicine is poison" saffron IS a prescription medicine. he just made me a point.

if you vote PRO. you would be voting on nothing but ideas and conspiracies. (P.S. i dont care what the media calls it...its a conspiracy.) 
and it would simply be a mistake. i have shown you evidence and my opponent has shown you commercials and assassins creed staff and some symbols saying sorcery is what's in medics. is this really what we want? i sure hope not. thank you!

Previous Judgments

2019-01-23 17:31:43
DefenderJudge: Defender
Win awarded to: BrennanMedlock
Reasoning:
First of all, I don't like this debate. Both side seems to be onto rebutting each other's argument. However, I will gave this BrennanMedlock(Con) since he provided a much better argument than crossed(Pro). My explanation is that: First of all, Pro make his arguments nearly all upon insufficient data. He provided data on how many people die from car accidents and stuffs, but never gave any solid evidence upon how prescription medication kills people. Second of all, his videos, such as TruTV are unreliable due to their quality of publishing only comedies or parodies.

Feedback:
Pro: Use more reliable evidence and stop depending upon the things you believes. You will convince next to no one except yourself if you use only these weird theories.
Con: Next time, don't waste your time. Go straight into rebuttal, provide solid evidence and beat him back.

Win awarded to: BrennanMedlock
Reasoning:
I'm voting for Con because they provided more valid arguments and sources than Pro. Also, Pro failed to make any sort of argument, hoping to win based on a list of side effects, pictures and videos. While Pro attempted to use the possible side effects of some medications as well some baseless religious information to prove that medication is automatically poison, Con easily called out the flaws of Pro's arguments and shut them down. Pro also used little to no valid sources and the valid source he did use didn't really help his argument all that much. Con's arguments were better structured than Pro's as well. Where Pro had a few sentences and then a list of side effects, most of which were repeated from previous rounds.

Feedback:
crossed: When it comes to something like this, you need to leave religion out of it. This is a science/medical debate so your arguments should be coming from those fields. Also, listing side effects and pointing out that medication has them, doesn't prove that everyone WILL get them. Also, having side effects doesn't mean something is poisonous. Everything has side effects, so saying something has them, is irrelevant. Try using some valid sources to prove that medication is actually poisonous. Also, work on your grammar and spelling.

BrennanMedlock: Rebutting is great and all, but it helps to keep on track and provide some of your own arguments, in this case, prove that medicine isn't poison. That ought to garner even more votes in your favor.

GuitarKirbyJudge: GuitarKirby
Win awarded to: BrennanMedlock
Reasoning:
Con definitely took this debate by use of extensive, relevant sources which were cited properly more often than Pro. Furthermore Pro failed to construct their argument in a particularly sound way.

Feedback:
Pro: Presentation matters. Written debate should always be done as though you are handing in an essay, so proofreading for spelling and grammar errors is super important. When you cite sources, you should paraphrase, summarize, or otherwise present what your sources say in an easy to understand way - asking the judges to read through them in their entirety (or, in the case of video sources, watch them in their entirety) is a poor way to get your argument across, and you certainly have the opportunity to do more with many of the sources cited.

Con: Same thing I said above about presentation. Proofread your work. Also, your jibe at your opponent's grammatical structure and personal commentary on their sources isn't relevant to the debate; I'd recommend a focus on the structure of their argument and, more importantly, the content. You did a better job of properly summarizing your sources but could have done even better.

I hope to see more from both debaters in the future on this site!

aafaoneJudge: aafaone
Win awarded to: BrennanMedlock
Reasoning:
Brennan has presented reasonable refutation against crossed who has used theories and outdated data therefore rendering the arguments of the latter unreasonable and chaotic.

Feedback:
Crossed was not grasping the point of the debate and moved all over the topic aside from prescription medicine making his points random and insensible.
