If, during the course of a debate, you become convinced that you were wrong at first, and you change your position to the new thing that you consider right, you end up right, but you lose the debate.

Debating should be about right and wrong, but for many people, it ends up being about winning and losing. People don't want to think that they might be wrong, so they don't admit that it's possible. Any debate that never ends is either because at least one of the parties is not good enough at arguing, or because at least one of the parties is too stubborn to change its position, even if one proves the other wrong.

Or quite possibly there is no right or wrong. Hence the debate about the existence of god. Not enough evidence for either side. It is just an endless debate that nobody can solve but God (if he/she exists).

Yeah, you're right. I'll rephrase.

"Any debate in which one position is right and the other is wrong that never ends is either because at least one of the parties is not good enough at arguing, or because at least one of the parties is too stubborn to change its position, even if one proves the other wrong."

I like debating for the mere challenge of finding a person worth talking to. A majority of my friends are quite good linguists. I don't like talking to stupid people. I'm no genius, but hearing stupid talk about subjects is just laughable. I in no way mean this as a stereotype, but a lot of Southern people make me laugh at their feeble attempts at stating a solid fact lol.

EDIT - AGAIN!! THIS IS GETTING OFF TOPIC!! Add me on AIM or MSN lol

I enjoy debating cause some people actually do bring up good points that enlighten my intellect. It's quite refreshing.

ekattan, I enjoy debating for the same thing.

King Bond, I'll agree that it's not very satisfying to argue with idiots, but the worst is arguing with people who are unwilling to change their opinions when they encounter new evidence.

I don't use either. Seriously though, I'm going to start a new thread about genetics and environment so that we can continue arguing about it without it being off-topic.

And if you want to get back on-topic in this thread, I'm ready.

In all honestly, i believe there is more to life than just "what feels good". There is more to life than just ME.

Agreed. People in my city are starting to have sex around the age of 12-13. It sickens me.

It's disgusting. I waited till I was 15 and that was still a very young age.
