Debate or Discussion?


Hear hear!

That first question is basically the same as the thread I opened yesterday on the defeasability test - if you can't think of anything, even theoretically, even in principle, which could make you change your mind on the given subject, debate is not really what you're after. It's a more or less open admission that your position is held irrationally because you've precluded the possibility of having your mind changed by counter-argument and/or counter-evidence.

The OP is brilliant - in theory.  This is people we're talking about, so that's where it falls down in its application.  

Trouble with facts is they end up  as yesterdays errors and become obsolete in the face of new facts. Beauty it seems is in the eye of the beholder.

And thats a fact
