Google definition:
A Debate is a process that involves formal discussion on a particular topic where opposing arguments are put forward to argue for opposing viewpoints.

The purpose of a debate is to express yourself and speak your heart out on a given topic. And you will get the opposition in your reasoning. The art of debating teaches you to prove your point, even if you get the contradiction. It tests your reasoning.

Some people say they like a “good debate”.... but... do they really?

Or... they are just seeking out people to agree with them?

Is it positive or negative? uh oh

Discuss to your heart´s content. conversing teddybear

I'm not sure if I should agree or not. I hate to be the object of a confirmation bias. laugh

I like it when people do not agree with me, if they have thoughtful reasons why, because i learn something, but many have an opinion and no thoughts to back it up

Hello Marlin..

Yes...it's always interesting to hear someone else's point of view and...as you say...As long as they can back it up.

Otherwise...it is just an opinion and open to discussion.dunno

Most of the subjects I talk about are real issues going on in society and I hope I have woken a few people up to the agenda…talking about the solutions to a problem is first accepting, there is a problem…debate can be helpful, once people know what page they are reading from and awoke to the bad in society

I have respect for those, who see some things the same way I do, on important issues and we don’t have to agree on everything, to build respect for one another…

I don’t respect people who oppose free speech, oppose talking about real issues, oppose scientific facts, oppose free thought and oppose freedom of expression, cause they are totalitarian dictators, who want to control everyone’s thoughts and push people, who don’t agree with them…

The left have been biased in media and told so many lies….do people really want to be free or do they prefer a nazi boot across their throat…evidence has shown, that hitlers ideas have been kept alive and used in the west, by lefists and they sure have brainwashed a lot of people with their lies

Socialists, communists, feminists, globalists oppose free speech and history has proven, that these ideologies were born to failprofessor

Some people are ignorant to a thread subjects and I have had some of those on my threads before..I would say, that those who use profanity and insult others, are those who are on the end, of a losing debate...The things in my previous comment, are relevant to the thread subject and I tend to stick to subjects, that I am well educated onnerd

Lee...usually "profanity" and "insult" are used by people who don't know what else to say and do not want to admit defeat.

It's seems to be easier to call Someone a...whatever...
Than saying they don't know or admitting they are wrong.

The nicest possible way to challenge anything. Having a say is how free society legitimises authority but I think a no questions asked society is more likely now, Michael Jackson doing that so obviously in front of everybody the writing is on the wall for liberal democracy. The enlightenment was kidding itself, you can't fire a man who's doing a good job.

Debating is a good way of broadening ones mind as well as getting your own point over, which could change in the middle of the debate with a new way of looking at things.

Very few things in life are set in stone killing, etc.

Keeping ones mind open is good teddybear
