My response is, both of the original statements are false, because the skills required for programming and debugging are subtly different, and not inherently easier or harder. The debugging task has methods that can be systematic and stepwise (making the task "easier"), and sometimes requiring additional code writing to interrogate what were, in your original inspired creation phase, leaps of intuition or complex design you imagined were simpler than you thought (making the task "harder"). Debugging is in part a process of learning how complex your design intent really is, when translated into a language of a complex machine. They are not really separate things, programming and debugging.
