DEBATES And Their Purpose... (58)

Good morning Kay dunno

I have just read your comment and agree entirely with what you said. thumbs up

I am led to believe that when a person knows that they are wrong and choose to stubbornly maintain their position, then an internal dissonance develops. This leads to further mounting of emotion and irrational thoughts and behaviors. They know they are wrong and refuse to admit it.

Exactly! I put this down as an Ego issue.uh oh

Also, as I wrote in one of my blogs: "Being happy, or right?"


A person who knows they are right rarely loses their temper or succumbs to emotional outbursts.
True! It even becomes laughable at times.


Having said that, I can already hear the steam mounting inside people who want to argue against what I have said.

Probably but... I doubt if they will comment on this thread, but create their own thread instead?

Track16: True debate is neither positive or negative, it is a argument of a topic from different sides. What people choose to do with the result of the debate is what can be good or evil.
Hi Track wave

You´re right! thumbs up

The important thing in a debate is to stay detached from the outcome.

Debates have sparked revolutions and have sparked riots. It all depends on who ears listens to them.

daniela777: Excellent M4!

During my teaching career, we also had some conversation topics such as smoking, drinking, etc. and, like you pointed out, about the death penalty...
And the class was divided into two groups with each side debating pros or cons... but, from the other side perspective, without judgment nor emotions involved, and staying "detached" from the outcome.

This was very interesting indeed!

But... how many have those skills nowadays?
I don't know....all it takes is debating the topic and not the person.....staying detached from the outcome and not looking at it as a win/loose....those with a need to always be right aren't great people to debate with.....wave

marlindap: 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
I only disagree when I know I'm right and then can prove it , then they doddle off with their tail between their legs,,,,laugh

i have not seen many good debates on CS forums except ChesneyChrist aming himselfs. this is a place for amusement. Regardless, Unlike the USA government where they have long drawn speeches which are nothing more than bloviations with little response on the floor, the British are beautiful debaters in Parliament.

I love this recorded debate where Margarette Thatcher corrctly gets in the face and opposes more socialism and a central bank in Europe. she, rightly so, didnt want England to give up its own power and controls to a central European bank. r.i.p. Iron Lady Margarette Thatcher.... sad flower

daniela777: 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?

Discuss to your heart´s content.
Hello wave

I agree with you...being a place for entertainment...mostly not taken seriously.

Of course...there are a few exceptions !
