Someone here on the Forums has a tagline to the effect that you can't reason a person out of an opinion that he has not reasoned himself into.

Just like debates on television. A debate never makes anyone change their mind, it only reinforces the opinions of those whose mind is already made up, and confuses the undecided.

Lol, I l don't think there has been a real debate on television in my lifetime.

What we have are "media events" of for and by media people trying to show us how clever they are...

That is the real truth..

AND.... Practicality is a major component of reason...

The biggest lesson we should take from "the argue thread" is to try and enjoy the banter...

Common A/F positions;

1. It is best to tow at no more than 60 or 65 mph tops.

2. You need a diesel to scale any grade you may encounter at 85 mph.

1. I agree

2. This cannot occur if you obey number 1.

I am a firm believer in "Better Safe than Sorry"

I have proven many times, however, that you can be both safe and sorry. This usually causes me to wonder if I would still be sorry, if I had not been safe. I usually decide I would have had more fun. If you're going to sorry anyway, Go for it.

Challenge:

Figure out what I just said. If you do let me know.

Nope, don't think so. I ran with scissors when I was a kid and even in to young adulthood. Not a hint of being sorry and what a thrill.
Not so much now as it is hard to shuffle along with my walker while holding my beer, cigarette...and scissors. I would be sorry if I spilt the beer so I guess you are somewhat right.

That is a sneaky and silly syllogism.

I used to be syllogist. However, I once got trapped in a circular syllogism and nearly exploded.

Since that near death experience, I have converted to Twistorism. (A belief system I invented based on twistor theory). Since I don't understand any of it, I am at peace with no inner conflicts.

Try arguing with that!!!

No, it isn't. A syllogism requires a conclusion drawn from TWO premises that each share a word with the conclusion. "This is the argue thread. No agreement allowed." is not a syllogism.

"This is the argue thread. Agreeing is not arguing. Therefore you cannot agree on the argue thread." is a syllogism.
